    Some bugs are quite funny really. Here's one with the new Android phone that is probably not so amusing to some people like a college intranet system that denies you certain search terms.

    When I first head of the problem, it just absolutely boggled the mind that something like that passed QA. Since the system commands were exposed, I'd be curious if any commands not meant for the general user were also available.

    Speaking of intranet systems ... where do you get one, or, how do you make/create one?
    I have three computers on/around one desk. Only one is hooked to the Internet. One gaming, one business, one blogging/searching whatever it's called.
    I've checked with Geek-Squad, and others and they say that sort of thing is only available at Universities. Is this so? If so, why only them?
    Go from "G" router to "N" router? (the base unit is 50 feet away).
    I'd appreciate any help someone could give us, on how to accomplish this feat at as many as three locations of three computers apiece.
    Thanks in advance.
