Unable to write to /var/log/btmpview story

http://askubuntu.com – I recently had a bunch of entries in my btmp log [because of a boneheaded move on my part] I resolved the issue, but now I would like to clear that log, I copied it somewhere else for reference and then I attempted to null the file, but to no avail. I then checked the permissions for the file itself and everything looks right? Just unsure of why it will not let sudo access the file. (HowTos)

Sound too low when making calls on Moto G smartphoneview story

Now, this would seem to be a hardware issue except that plenty of people seem to have the problem and it has only occurred since the latest Kit-Kat update. (HowTos)
