Why would anyone want to open their garage door from thousands of miles away?

Because bob3160 usually is thousands of miles away and he wants to help his wife.  ;)

You could always release your pit bulls from a distance.
Probably only of any use if you've left your remote somewhere
and the manual way of opening the garage door isn't working.
Same principal as the app on your cell phone to start your car remotely or,
unlock the doors remotely.

Google hits 'terrible teenage' years; Mixed bag to celebrate
By Zack Whittaker | September 27, 2011, 4:30am PDT

Summary: Google celebrates its thirteenth birthday with a plasticine cake and global search dominance. But party guest Facebook threatens to derail the whole day.

Google celebrates its 13th birthday today with a low-key doodle, which can be found on display on the front page of the main search site.

A Pretty Sunset doesn't happen every evening and when you've got a video camera handy,
saving it for posterity is always a good option.

I just heard about this site: www.spokeo.com
I always knew I wasn't very invisible, but never realized just how much free stuff is available and,
how cheap it is to find out a whole lot more about myself or any one else.
