I found my food experiment for this weekend!
Warmer weather on the horizon means that Mike and I are planning on heading out to our patio more, which means drinks and nibbles as the nights start to get longer. I hardly ever (read: never) drink without having something...

Been spending a lot of time is Tableau lately. This is awesome news!
The latest version of Tableau is packed with new features like auto data prep, smart maps, and a faster Tableau Server experience. A central theme of Tableau 9.0 is the idea of flow: so you can keep asking question of your data at the speed of thought, uninterrupted.

I find it funny that reporters have been talking about the original Pixel's poor battery life, as if it was not par or even great, compared to other laptops at its launch.

We have been spoiled over the past several years and have forgotten that beginning with the Haswell line, Intel essentially doubled battery life for most laptops. Since the original Pixel was launched in February 2013 and the Haswell was announced in June 2013, it seems an unfair standard to hold it to.

I believe that most people miss the fact that Google's most incredible asset is the machine learning capability they have developed.

I use Balsamic Mockups at least once a week and am really looking forward to this new version!
Today we are shipping v.3 on the Desktop and in the Web Demo. The plugins and myBalsamiq will be updated to v.3 as soon as possible (think weeks, not months). Balsamiq Mockups 3 is both simpler and more powerful at the same time. The core editing experience should feel very familiar, ...

The food and the service were horrible. Additionally the owner and the landlord appear to be running a predatory parking scam out of the restaurant which results in a sleazy thuggish vibe. I will not be going back!
