So, I pre-ordered the Pixel from Google and I still haven't received a code for a Daydream View. I've checked my spam folder and it's not there. Any suggestions?

I just discovered that Microsoft distributes Windows 10 updates peer-to-peer. Aside from potential security issues, this seems like a ridiculous bandwidth hog. Why would this be enabled by default?!

My wife's pixel quit working today. Microphone appears to be completely non-functional, and the speakers are intermittent, including the headphone jack. The best Google support could come up with was to replace the phone. They said they needed my credit card info in case I didn't return the malfunctioning phone, but then they went ahead and changed my card for the full purchase price anyway. On top of that, they claim to have not received the pixel xl that I shipped 14 days ago. Not cool, Google. 

I'm aware of the Belkin 27w car charger, but I'm unable to find any other USB-PD car chargers. All of my research keeps bringing me back to QuickCharge 3.0 chargers, which unofficially seem to work, but if I understand correctly, the Vbus is trying to pull a higher voltage through a 5V rail (not entirely sure I understand what that means), which could result in "unpredictable behavior". Is anyone able to confirm or clarify any of this?

Is this legitimate, or is it a phishing scam?

Filling out a survey for the recruiting firm that placed me in my job... I think they're fluffy.

Most stable rom for LG D851 (T-Mobile LG G3)?
My wife has a G3, and the stock rom is pretty glitchy.  She's far from a power user, and just wants it to work.  It doesn't need to be the latest version, and doesn't need all the extra custom options, it just needs to be stable, and hopefully include wi-fi calling.  I'm tempted to go with CM12 because I've had good experiences with CM in the past, but there are no 'stable' releases for the T-Mobile variant.  I'm also looking at Euphoria and SlimLP, but I'm open to other suggestions.  Thoughts?

Since it appears everything is held for waitlist, is it appropriate to waitlist multiple courses in case you don't get in, and then withdraw if you get into more than you intend to take?

Running Euphoria with 5.1 on my Nexus 6, and loving it!  2 questions for the community:
1. If you change your lcd density, how do you choose what setting you want to use?  I know the rom has this built in with different options available, but I also see people manually changing these settings and choosing random numbers like 493.
2. Where is the file located that allows you to customize the navigation bar width?  In the rom settings, I have the option to change the height and width, but the maximum size for the width seems too small (I am using an lcd density of 320).  The lcd density can be modified in /data/property/persist.sys.lcd_density (changing it in build.prop will not work in this rom.  Rather than actually changing it, it will just change what the settings see as the default lcd density).  I assume there is a file like this somewhere that controls the navigation bar height and width since it doesn't appear to be recompiling the framework to make this change.
