The "Charging Rapidly" text on my +Nexus 5X lock screen is often deceptive, and I don't understand why. When connected to some of my external batteries, it'll say "Charging Rapidly" and then say 1h40m until full, which indicates that it is NOT charging rapidly at all. The only thing that will consistently fast charge my 5X is the stock charger that came with it, and I can't even find somewhere to buy another unit of that model. (Maybe I haven't looked hard enough?)

The QuickCharge 2.0/3.0 standards for micro USB all seem to have been thrown out the window with USB-C. There are at least five different fast-charging methods for USB-C devices now, which is crazy since there are so few different USB-C models out there.

I expect that I'll be purchasing a +OnePlus 3 later this year, and I am bothered by the fact that I'll have to deal with a totally different fast charging method again.

What cables are you using? I've found with any "fast" charging technology the cable gauge has a direct impact. While I haven't purchased any additional 3A chargers, that has been because the 2A chargers I have from previous devices (and installed as part of my outlets) normally do a passable job with good cables.

Can't sleep, so I'm researching portable AC units. In reading some reviews, I found a review site that is super shady. I have looked at 10 separate reviews and all of them are five-star reviews. And every page contains prominent links to the product's page on Amazon. And every link contains an Amazon affiliate ID. The scheme appears to be sing a song of glory for every model on the market to entice people to purchase the product with your affiliate link. I've always wondered about the ubiquitous we-review-every sites; this experience has made it clear that one needs to do a meta-review of the reviews site to see if it is actually providing honest reviews or simply shilling. #ReviewReaderBeware

Anyone else found themselves reading more news based on Google​ Now's suggested reading list? It took a while for it to really nail the recommendations, but it is now at the point where I have to set aside some time to read it all. And that is a great thing! Thanks, +Google​!

Haven't used Google Now for years but use news.google.com almost daily.... the odd thing there is that I think in the last year the recommendations there have been getting a lot worse.

I've been tinkering with a generic Pokemon-inspired logo for Chicago-area Pokemon communities. This would make a great patch if someone wanted to make them. (I'll provide the .svg source if anyone wants it.) #ChicagoThing #NotAFactionThing

The food was good though our order had some problems. The Manhattan I had was terrible, but the rest of the drinks we ordered were fine.

Room was clean. Facility seems new and polished. The breakfast area is tiny, and they were having trouble keeping up with replenishing the buffet. Overall, a good place to stay, but get to breakfast early if you can.

Good food, though a little on the bland side for Thai food. The service was attentive and handled our unexpected, 20-person group efficiently. I would describe the ambiance as elegantly casual. Definitely recommended.

We brought a group of 15 right as they opened on a Saturday morning. They did a fantastic job handling such a large, unexpected group. The food was very good. And it is hard to beat their $1 mimosas and free(!!!) Bloody Mary bar included with breakfast.

Tap Room seems to be a hidden gem in Salt Lake City. The bartenders are friendly. The prices are very reasonable. Casual spot. Lots of room inside and a great patio, too. And the best whiskey selection I've seen in SLC. Highly recommended!

Good sushi. Cheap, tasty cocktails. My only complaint was with the plating of the sushi; we ordered 9 items for a group of four... and ended up with 9 oversized, rectangular plates that left us with no room for our own plates. It made for an uncomfortable meal at the beginning. (I'm used to having multiple rolls on a small number of large plates or boards.) I'll happily dine at Saps again, but I think we'll have to space out order a little.

I'm a big fan of Greenspin Cleaners. They are reasonably priced. They can do same-day laundering. And all my shirts come back clean and crisp. Recommended!
