After switching over to my Moto 360 I kept saying that I'd switch back to +Pebble in a heartbeat if they made a round watch. The new Pebble Time Round sacrifices too much of what made Pebble great though. I admire the effort Pebble but this is not how you win me back.

With Android running on it, I WOULD buy this pixel. Notice the USB type-C AND TWO other USB ports and this isn't even a laptop technically speaking. Listening Apple?

A huge conference space where the biggest tech giants host their conferences and news events. I've been here twice for Google I/O and the place has been more than accommodating for the huge number of attendees each year and the onsite staff has been very helpful.

A very interesting experience that you have to try while you're in San Francisco. It's Korean-Mexican fusion. The resulting flavor kind of depends on what you get but the fried chicken burrito I had reminded me of Indian food (in a great way!). It's a very popular lunch spot during the week so make sure you allocate the right amount of time before you check it out. I wouldn't say it's one of my favorite places, the taste can be a little polarizing for some but it's definitely something you should try at least once.

Excellent and inexpensive Mexican food with a very authentic vibe. They also have nice indoor and outdoor seating options in a not very busy part of town. My only complaint is that it could have been a little cleaner. Everything was sanitary but things did feel a little unorganized and confusing at first trying to figure out where to get silverware and water. However it was also one of the best cheap burritos I've had in the city so far.

An excellent accidental find for me one night. A quaint little spot not far from the ocean with great food and even better service. The atmosphere is perfect for a date too. The food is reasonably priced and the portions are large. More likely than not you'll be taking some home for lunch the next day. I will definitely be returning here.

One of my recent favorites in the city! Delicious food and presentation with a nice muted atmosphere. The custom grilled cheese options are very accommodating and I absolutely loved the grilled mac n' cheese. The sandwiches also come with fresh strawberries on the side which were a very nice touch. My only complaint is that the seating wasn't the most accommodating, on a busy night you might be out of luck but the food is most definitely worth it. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

They never disappoint! Not the only place in town with their interesting model but i haven't been to the other two. Honestly though with how great they are I don't see a reason to! Every time I've been there they've done some really great things with sweet corn. Also I do really love the extra slices thrown on top of the one pizza order.
