RRA quick question (probably for Ron) I am very interested in a Google TV for my bedroom TV. I do not game at all. Streaming internet content is important, but not as important at local network content. Can the Google TV stream content from a Network share such as from a NAS or another PC on the local network?
I love the show, keep up the great work!

This episode of [show] is brought to you by Ford.
Ford has developed various available technologies to collect vehicle data and use it to enhance and improve the overall driving experience.
● Two examples of this are BLIS, the Blind Spot Information System and Active Park Assist
http://ford.com/technology0:05:00

.

Here’s how BLIS works:
● Sensors in both vehicle rear quarter-panels scan potential blind spots to detect traffic.
● If another vehicle is indeed in the blind spot, both audible and visual alerts warn the driver.
BLIS technology also enables a feature called cross-traffic alert.
● This can warn the driver of oncoming traffic when backing out of a parking space with obstructed views, such as between two large vans.
Another helpful technology is Active Park Assist, which uses sensors to:

.

● identify a suitable parallel parking space
● calculate the trajectory, and
● steer the car precisely into the spot.
● It does all of this in as little as 24 seconds.
● All the driver operates are the accelerator, gear selector and brake pedal.

It’s clear that Ford is staying on top of new technologies to help improve the overall
driving experience.

BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert and Active Park Assist are available in the 2013 Ford
Fusion and 2013 Ford Taurus.
● You can learn more about this and other technologies Ford is bringing to its
vehicles at Ford.com/technology.

JHHey guys, 

I don't know if you saw this, but the most recent Amazon App Store update now allows you to remove previously purchased apps from the "cloud" tab. I've downloaded a lot of Free apps of the day, and haven't kept most of them around, so the ability to unclutter the App Store interface is a welcome one. 

I just went through my list and removed a bunch of apps I have no intention of ever installing again. The process isn't as easy as it is on the Google Play Store, but it does work. The biggest issue I had (on my Galaxy S3) was that many times it thought I was trying to scroll the list, or that I had tapped (opening the app description) instead of press-and-hold (to remove it). 

When I first removed an app, it told me something about being able to re-add it later, which suggests that you don't lose access to the licenses you've "purchased" (whether free or paid) even if you remove them. I didn't investigate this, but it makes sense given the customer service quality Amazon usually provides. 

Thanks for a great show!
Chris Larsen

JHHey AAA guys,
I have been a long time TWIT listener. I have been downloading the podcasts for over 6 years. Sometimes I like to listen or watch while I am out and about. Since I don't go live very often, I didn't notice exactly when, but I can no longer get any TWIT on my Android devices. I am using a Galaxy S3 (4.1), Galaxy Note 10.1 (4.0), an Acer A500 (4.0). From what I have gathered from your podcasts, Flash is no longer available for anything above Gingerbread (or was it Honeycomb?) I also have gathered that Flash is not available for the newer Android products.

Am I missing something? Or are your live shows not available to most of the mobile world? I used to be able to get Flash on my phones but I seem to have upgraded myself out of viewing anything Flash on my mobile devices. My wife likes to watch surfing events (e.g. vanstriplecrownofsurfing.com) where I get the message that I need to install Flash.

I can understand this from a surfing site, but I would have assumed that your network would give us alternatives. I have the built in browser, Chrome and Dolphin and I cannot figure out any way to watch your podcasts on my mobile devices.

Please help.
Thanks,
Stuart In San Diego

[1] There are some great products out of Motorola, but none of them are your signature Nexus line. Will you partner with Motorola for these sort of signature devices? How will you decide when to partner with them? And despite all your assurances to the other [Android] partners that you're going to be neutral, aren't they going to freak out [when you build a Motorola Nexus]? 
First of all, I don't think there's any physical way we could have released a Nexus Motorola device in that sense. I mean, we haven't owned the company long enough. How will you decide when to do a Motorola Nexus device, and what do you tell Samsung and LG? 
 I think there's a lot of complexity in that question. Maybe I'll talk more generally about that area.
The right way to think about it is how do we get amazing products into users' hands in the most cost-effective, highest quality way possible and to the most people. That's what we do as a business, and that's what we've done with Android. 
Part of the reason why we've done Nexus devices in the past is that we want to build an amazing device that kind of showcases what's possible on Android, gives a way for the programmers to get early builds, does a whole bunch of things that are important. Exactly what we do, which devices we do, what the timing is, how we release the software with them, all those things have been changing. Every day we kind of evaluate how do we help our partners out the right way, how do we produce amazing innovative devices, and how do we get those out, and how do we get that innovation into the ecosystem and into the hands of as many people as possible, and how do we keep our partners happy. I think we've done a pretty good job of that so far.
[2] Guy Kawasaki, a notable evangelist for Apple back in the 80s, told ReadWriteWeb that he no longer uses iOS products and in fact, fell in love with Android 1 year ago. He says To me the great irony is that Apple’s slogan was `Think Different,’ but today if you think different you’re looking at Android.” Catch Guy Kawasaki on tomorrow's Triangulation with Leo Laporte at 4pm PT. I'm sure this topic will be on the table.
[3] FreeTime Unlimited, the all-you-can-eat plan books, games, educational software, movies, and TV shows - all just for kids. disabled all in-app payments, ads, and all social media links/references FreeTime Unlimited - available via a software update coming "later this month" - is $3 per month per child, or $7 a month for the whole family for Prime customers. Non-Prime customers $5 per month per child, or $10 for the entire family.
[4] Hulu has added a new dedicated section for kids. Knowing that Hulu contains some stuff you might not want your children watching they have also introduced a new Kids Lock that feature allows parents to restrict access to Kids-only content on their devices.
