    Dentists recommend spending two to three minutes brushing, and according to at least one study the average person spends only 45-70 seconds brushing. Reducing the total time spent doing that to 10 seconds (improving time in both cases) while increasing the effects from that of the usual 45-70 second brush to that of a full two to three minutes is an improvement either way.

    That's the other side of it for sure. If you've ever seen the crazy amount of energy that goes into a toddler's "I don't wanna" type temper tantrum, I can assure you it's not laziness that they are suffering from when they don't want to brush.

    Not even toddlers my 8 and 9 year old would go weeks if I wasn't pestering them all the time. Even now, they say they did when they didn't.

    Either an Echo Show or Apple HomePod. I want the HomePod because of more speakers and it looks like a giant marshmallow. However, as of right now, it looks like you won't be able to use third party applications with it. With the Echo Show, I can stream music with either Amazon's own service or Spotify and music is the main thing I use these devices for.

    Anyone have a recommendation on a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem?

    I cancelled Cox TV. I want to get rid of the landline too, but I would have to give back the eMTA modem to do that. Cox will let me buy and use my own DOCSIS modem on their network. I don't feel like paying $10/month to rent their POS Wifi Modem.

    Bought my family an Arris Surboard SB6121 modem for the same reason and for the past few years they've been using it, I haven't heard any issues from them about it.

    Arris Surfboard SB6141. They're going for right around $50 at Best Buy. Oddly enough, the firmware still says Motorola.

    If this thing ever gets released, it's going to replace my current Asus 13" notebook with GT 940m. It's held up well, but showing its sign of age.
