I live in metro Detroit, so there a couple of facts i would like to clear up.
The Pontiac Sliverdome is in Pontiac,Mi about 30 miles north of downtown Detroit where the Lions play now.
Triple Properties bought sliverdome for $583,000 in 2009, and purposely collapsed roof last year.
You can buy seats for $100 now, and other things that the owners are auctioning off.
Yes, it is sad, another wasted opportunity. Detroit is doing better, but it will take a long time.
Ford Field is awesome.
I agree with the Tested logo t-shirt idea.
Yes, Detroit has many many problems.But as a resident of the Detroit suburbs i will highlight a few things.
Huge car show that takes up major road for a weekend. Mid August, 2014 will be 20th year.,http://www.woodwarddreamcruise.com/
Ford factory tour, Greenfield village (wright bros.,Edison, ride in a Model T, etc.) http://www.thehenryford.org/
Maker faire, End of July, http://www.makerfairedetroit.com/
3 Casinos downtown.
Cheapest City tour, 0.75 take People mover,2.9-mile loop http://www.thepeoplemover.com/Home.id.2.htm

The Automatic car app sounds interesting. I manually entered into my spreadsheet for two years, but data wasn't worth the effort. So i stopped. This makes it easy, but the data will in their system.
I will still get one someday, but no more pre-order for me, Fitbit, Pebble, etc. etc.
Here is the link below.
it is a fancy hot glue gun or "my first 3D printer".
Should be an interesting toy.
Here is my small collection, i also have an order for a Orange Pebble.I'm excited to see what comes in future of watches.
If tested needs any ideas for money, sell t-shirts almost everyone on the internet sells t-shirts.
Good evening Testers;
Are there many left handers out there?
Do you have any interesting stories with tech or testing?
It was mentioned in the podcast that Gary is Left handed.
i'm left handed, but i use a mouse with my right hand, which allows me to write with my left.
Great job on the show, caught mostly second half. Congrats on crossing over 30K.
I had problems watching on laptop, and Samsung S3: but the Nexus 7 worked great. i didn't donate on day of, but did when i got paid on 31st.
One suggestion: Label the mic's and headphones, there were multiple times, that there was a mix up and Will had to adjust the levels.
First reaction, Battlebots! i have forgotten about battlebots, since tv show ended.
After looking at Battlebots website, it hasn't been update since 2011 nationals. do you guys know if there are any other websites, or upcoming events?
It would be cool if the guys visited a local team, and ask the tech and testing that they do.
i know it has a limited use case, but i still want one.
In a couple of years the price will come down and will become more advanced. That's when i'll buy one.
To Will, I say post your weight results. I have been tracking my weight for almost a year, although it's been rocky the last few months, i still weight myself everyday. see picture of chart below.
Got my Nexus 7 yesterday, very excited since it's my first tablet.
Any suggestions for a case?
I built my own standing desk last year, and used it for about two months. see link to picture below.
I never got into a good pattern of using it. Now, my office has moved and the cubicle walls are only 5 ft tall. it would be strange to stand over the person next to me. i may try a standing desk at home, since i don't spend long periods of time there anyways.
@aaronb: You are correct. Thanks.
@Greg818: My transmission is an auto, and my car is rated at 25 city / 35 Hwy. I drive about 70% highway / 30% city, but higher speeds reduce my mpg to around 30-31 most of the time.
Good evening testers;
I've had my car for 18 months, tracking my MPG, price per gallon, etc.
Do you track your car and what other things do you follow?
The big numbers, 45779.6 miles, 1565.43 gallons of gas, $5,701.16 on gas.29.46 MPG average. (2011 ford focus)
I pay 0.1245 cents per mile.
price per gallon Graph
i like how a quick look is longer than 10 minutes.
I've been playing with the tectiles. You choose from a few types of tiles. but you are limited to only one type, you can't open an app and turn up the volume. I still experimenting on how i can use the tiles.
