once brothers, never twice

once brothers, never twice, cut so deep, nothing can hurt, am not bitter, retain no hate, cut so deep, nothing can compare, left no void, content with life, never to sight, share air again, speak one word, years have passed, i feel nothing, cut so deep, never brothers, never twice

the three united, mom dad me, we have each other, closer we’ve never. dad says he loves you, he does not like you, says you’re too busy, he’s broken, feels empty, you just left him. held our crying mom, -you fractured her family. late to mend, too late already, appreciation not shown, can only grieve, your time fades, and chance spent

Quickly Convert Between Celsius and Fahrenheit Without a Calculator

thumb-2-1

The formula to convert between the two temperature scales isn’t something most of us can do in our head, but if you just need a close estimation, this formula works great:

Celsius to Fahrenheit: Multiply the temperature by 2 and then add 30
(actual formula is multiply by 1.8, add 32)

example: 22° Celsius is roughly equal to 74° Fahrenheit using this method
(actual conversion is 71.6°)

Good Morning,.. As Long As You Love Me

Bluetooth Speaker Packed Full of Features on the Cheap

It’s no bank-breaking accessory for a smartphone or tablet, but one that I at least could not do without.
It’s loud, and sounds great; great-quality while loud, and has a solid-built quality touch to it- And it’s the iHome iBT16 mini Bluetooth speaker.

You can play audio using different connection methods with this speaker- and I’m going to go over them in this overview because everything else that needs to be said about the speaker, is all stated in the first two short sentences the begin this review, which earn it my 5/5 star rating.

iHome Bluetooth Rechargeable Mini Speaker Cube - Purple (iBT16UC)

iHome Bluetooth Rechargeable Mini Speaker Cube – Purple (iBT16UC)

Let’s start off with the coolest method of connecting; using NFC. My Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has NFC capabilities, as do many other phones and tablets. NFC (Near Field Communication) can be used for lots of other things, but in this case it’s basically just a shortcut to connecting to the speaker by pairing your phone to the speaker using Bluetooth. You can use NFC by holding the phone over the speaker for just 3-5 seconds. Then obviously there is just the Bluetooth connection method.

There is an AUX port so you can plug anything into its 3.5mm jack, and it’s bi-directional.
This is understated but importantly awesome!
Examples: Smartphone plugged into AUX port on speaker using a basic male-to-male 3.5mm cable plays whats on the phone; -AUX audio-in. But when I have my phone paired through Bluetooth to this speaker, I can then connect this speaker to my stereo with a 3.5mm to RCA (red & white) audio cable. So now it plays through this speaker but also through my home audio speaker system; -AUX audio-out.

The cable it comes with, 3.5mm and USB jacks on one side, and a micro USB jack on the other, adds another audio playback method. Plug the cable into your computer, laptop, etc, using the 3.5mm (headphone jack) and the USB to a free port, then the micro USB jack into the speaker and it not only charges it but plays audio from your computer through the speaker.

This all might not sound amazing but you’ve got at least 5 ways to connect, utilize, and/or get your music playing through this. NFC, Bluetooth, AUX-in, AUX-out, micro USB (When using the provided headphone jack and USB cable).

Favorite Feature: using the NFC to easily and quickly pair my phone and it’s Bluetooth to the speaker.

Best Utilization: This basically can and will make anything you have (older care stereo, home theater system, any stereo, or anything that can play audio and audio out to a 3.5mm jack) a wireless reviver. I plug this into my ancient, but great, TEAC receiver -and now its a wireless AND Bluetooth capable stereo system, with this as one extra little speaker!

Democratic staff table erupted in laughter when Google CEO had to Explain to Rep.Congressman that iPhone was made by a different Company

  • At a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday, Google CEO Sundar Pichai was asked by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) why his 7-year-old granddaughter saw a photo of the congressman with inappropriate language while playing a game on her iPhone.
  • Pichai answered, “Congressman, iPhone is made by a different company.”
  • The Democratic staff table erupted in laughter at Pichai’s reply, according to Business Insider’s Joe Perticone, who attended Tuesday’s hearing.
  • Rep. Ted Lieu (D-California) told the Iowa congressman later in the hearing that if he wanted “positive search results, do positive things.”

At a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday, Google CEO Sundar Pichai was asked some difficult questions. None was more difficult than a question asked by Iowa Rep. Steve King, however, whose question was literally impossible for Pichai to answer.

King said his 7-year-old granddaughter was playing a game on her phone before an election – most likely King’s November 2018 reelection bid – and was shown a picture of the congressman that included some not-so-flattering language.

“I’m not going to say into the record what kind of language was used around that picture of her grandfather,” he said.

Then, holding up his Apple device, King asked Pichai, “How does that show up on a 7-year-old’s iPhone who’s playing a kids game?”

The Google CEO answered the question by saying, “Congressman, iPhone is made by a different company.”

The Democratic staff table erupted in laughter at Pichai’s reply, according to Business Insider’s Joe Perticone, who attended Tuesday’s hearing.

King backtracked and said, “It might have been an Android. It’s just … it was a hand-me-down of some kind.”

Later in the hearing, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-California) told the Iowa congressman that if he wanted “positive search results, do positive things.” King has repeatedly found himself in hot water over his insensitive racial comments.

King wasn’t alone in holding up his iPhone when addressing Google’s CEO on Tuesday.

Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas) showed off his Apple device when asking Pichai whether Google tracked users’ phones for location data. Rep. Tom Marino (R-Pennsylvania) held his up as well when telling Pichai of the major responsibility he had because “there’s a lot of people who believe anything that’s put out, by anyone.”

Google’s Nexus Player Android TV has finally died with confirmation it won’t get Android P!

It’s been almost two years since Google’s Nexus Player was discontinued, but the device has been kept alive as a trusty Android TV with the latest the platform has to offer. Today, however, the original Android TV set-top box officially dies…

ASUS Google Nexus Player

ASUS Google Nexus Player

Google confirmed today to Android Police that the Nexus Player won’t ever see an update to Android P, the latest version of the OS which is currently in testing. This was expected considering it wasn’t listed alongside the company’s Pixel smartphones for the Android P developer preview, but we now have official confirmation.

For most users, this probably won’t affect anything, as the vast majority of Nexus Player owners have likely shifted to another device at this point. For those who haven’t, the device will still work on Oreo as it has, but it’s probably a good time to start looking at other options,

like the Nvidia Shield, for example.

For developers, this is a bit of a blow considering the Nexus Player was the only Android TV device that was designed with development in mind and developer previews from Google. However, they can still use emulators to test apps for newer versions of Android TV (not that OEMs will adopt them right away).

Goodbye Nexus Player. You had a great run as Google’s longest-supported device, and we’ll miss your quirky design… Until a “Pixel Player” lands, that is.
