Android updates take forever. While that’s okay most of the time
, it can be a problem when a new, terrible security vulnerability is found
. Whether you want to protect your phone, or just can’t wait for new updates, here’s how to skip the line and update your Nexus phone (and occasionally other devices) manually.
Drivers commuting into Manhattan will soon have more options for charging up their Model S. Tesla plans to put charging units in two dozen garages around the borough through an upcoming partnership. The units will offer quicker 240-volt charging, besting the speeds of regular ol’ household outlet. Of course, scattering the stations around Manhattan also means the stress of pre-planning the route home is reduced a bit. The list of participating garages includes the parking decks at hotels like the Waldorf Astoria, too. This latest effort follows the installation of charging stations along major highways as part of Tesla’s plan to offer more places for drivers to replenish those batteries and cure the so-called range anxiety. "We wanted to move to an urban charging network that meets the needs of those who live in apartments or commute into a big city," Tesla’s Alexis Georgeson told The New York Times. "Naturally, Manhattan was the place to try this for the first time."
First, I would like to say congrats to him for being open and honest about his struggles regarding this topic. Yesterday I went on a Google/Youtube wormhole trying to figure out what was going on with him and Lisa (his now ex-girlfriend) but his new video has answered all my questions
This news isn’t so much a surprise, but the revelation makes sense as a Youtube follower of his for many years.There were a lot of things that didn’t make sense but his “coming out” put context on the changes he made in the past year.

He was asked if he was bi-sexual by a fan, and he didn’t deny it outright (youtube vid removed shortly after composing this. Found video grab):
He got into drag in a video with Willam from RuPaul’s Drag Race, and Willam sensed that he wasn’t “straight” (2 minutes 05 seconds):
BUT … WHATEVER!!
He is living his life openly and honestly – and I wish the best. I hope that these changes will make him a happier person.
Eventually, you might not have to find a charging station when you park your electric car downtown — pedestrians could do the work instead. Pavegen has teamed up with Tesla to show off an experimental charger that tops up your EV through kinetic ene…

Remember a couple of years ago when Texas was in such a deep, seemingly-irreversible drought that experts trumpeted it as the next great megadrought, the likes of which would cause Texas to poof into a pile of dust by the end of the decade? The people currently wading through their living rooms remember.
