  1. I am able to connect my Nexus 6 to my Mac at home. But at the office, on my W7 machine, I am not able to connect.

    I have verified that my driver is up to date. http://screencast.com/t/Ns2oEkkLO

    I downloaded both the
    – Google Drive: http://developer.android.com/sdk/win-usb.html
    – Motorola Driver: https://motorola-global-en-uk.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/89881

    After installing, I then
    – Right clicked my device from Computer Management Console to UPDATE the driver
    – Pointed it to the place where I had downloaded the MotorolaDeviceManager_2.5.4.exe file.

    I got a confirmation that I am up to date (as seen in link 1).

    I am still unable to see any Chrome pages on my Nexus 6. chrome://inspect/#devices

    Any recommendations?

    Great post by the way.
