I follow lots of local service based accounts from traffic, police, fire, transit, city, utilities, etc. and find them posting information about the current state of things. I maybe have 5 actual people I follow mind you.

2013 Escape here and the the only issue I had with mine was out of the blue it often failed to sync with my iPhone 4s, I updated to the latest version (3.8) which was released specifically to fix syncing issues with iOS 9 and it has worked flawless ever since.

On a side note I took the update files and extracted all of the files from the *.cab files and noticed that the UI seems to be pretty much all Flash based which probably accounts for the some of the instability.

If Microsoft really cared about Windows 10's battery life...

Actually they do, by calling out Google they forced them (Google) to fix the problem.

I guess your peer driven hatred towards all things Microsoft and your fanboi lust for Google makes you pretty blind somtimes. It's ok most people probably ignore your dribble anyway...

Enjoy watching the Apple Event today...

Pretty much makes sense since more people are using mobile devices to access information on the internet and lets face it the web experience for mobile (pointing at phones) it pretty much completely unusable most of the time.
