Correcting A Broken Google Play Games Installation on Nvidia Shield TV with accounts using Google Suite

Some time ago I had some kind of error or corruption with my Google Play Games on my Nvidia Shield TV console. I am also a Google Suite (GSuite) subscriber which adds additional constraints. Any time I chose to log into google games the system would log in but then the game could not detect the log in. It was odd and I knew the issue was probably a local error. As it turns out there are a lot of hidden secrets that you need to check / setup before it all works. And any games you've played so far will probably lose their unsynced data.

Linear Algebra in Engineering: Summary (Part 7 of 7)

Preface
This series is aimed at providing tools for an electrical engineer to analyze data and solve problems in design. The focus is on applying linear algebra to systems of equations or large sets of matrix data.

Introduction
This article will attempt to organize the previous series of articles into a decision tree allowing you to quickly choose the best method for a particular problem.

Procedure
First, ask yourself some questions about your data and the type of answer you need.

Linear Algebra in Engineering: Analyzing Dynamic Systems with Markov Chains (Part 6 of 7)

Preface
This series is aimed at providing tools for an electrical engineer to analyze data and solve problems in design. The focus is on applying linear algebra to systems of equations or large sets of matrix data.

Introduction
This article will demonstrate the use of Markov Chains. This can be used to analyze models with cyclic or or repeated outcomes.

Linear Algebra in Engineering: Macroeconomics with Leontief Input-Output Model (Part 5 of 7)

Preface
This series is aimed at providing tools for an electrical engineer to analyze data and solve problems in design. The focus is on applying linear algebra to systems of equations or large sets of matrix data.

Introduction
This article will demonstrate the use of Leontief Input-Output Models. This can be used to analyze macroeconomic models of production.

Linear Algebra in Engineering: Analyzing Networks with Adjacency Matrices (Part 4 of 7)

Preface
This series is aimed at providing tools for an electrical engineer to analyze data and solve problems in design. The focus is on applying linear algebra to systems of equations or large sets of matrix data.

Introduction
This article will demonstrate the use of adjacency matrices to analyze interconnected vertices (for example map or network data).

Linear Algebra in Engineering: Trend Analysis with Polynomial Interpolation (Part 3 of 7)

Preface
This series is aimed at providing tools for an electrical engineer to analyze data and solve problems in design. The focus is on applying linear algebra to systems of equations or large sets of matrix data.

Introduction
This article will demonstrate the use polynomial interpolation.

Linear Algebra in Engineering: Trend Analysis with Polynomial Least Squares (Part 2 of 7)

Preface
This series is aimed at providing tools for an electrical engineer to analyze data and solve problems in design. The focus is on applying linear algebra to systems of equations or large sets of matrix data.

Introduction
This article will demonstrate the use of least squares fit real data to a polynomial.

Linear Algebra in Engineering: Equilibrium in Linear Systems (Part 1 of 7)

Preface
This series is aimed at providing tools for an electrical engineer to analyze data and solve problems in design. The focus is on applying linear algebra to systems of equations or large sets of matrix data.

Introduction
This article will demonstrate the use of matrix algebra to solve for equilibrium in systems. This is common in network flow, economics and electrical circuits (current and voltage analysis). We will apply exact and least squares solutions.

New Smartphone is a Disappointment

I must express my disappointment in my new smartphone. I thought upgrading from the dated, failing and left behind Samsung Galaxy S III to the larger, faster, updated Samsung Galaxy S6 would be just the tool I needed to bump my game to the next level. But it was not so.

On the plus side the updated audio provided a much higher fidelity listening experience. And the display is gorgeous. And the ambient light sensor actually works (even in the dark it can be adjusted to a reasonable level). The camera is significantly faster, more capable and higher resolution.

Fitness Tracking

One of the biggest difficulties I have getting fit is the lack of metrics on progress. I have no way of knowing whether or not a workout is effective or whether or not I'm making good use of my time. Fitness trackers are available now although most of them only track footsteps which to me is useless (maybe I'm wrong).

In addition I also have a terrible time getting quality sleep. I wish there were a device that could monitor and debug my sleeping difficulties.
