I think my one line review of I/O this year is

"Be together. Not the same."

Great time with friends but it feels like a 4 year old put together the conference. Not sure if I will be going back next year more on my opinion soon.

LG G Watch Urbane
At I/O I attended the LG event and got an LG G Watch Urbane. Over the last few days I've been using it over my Moto 360. I'm trying to not compare the software on this first go round of a review until the Moto 360 receives the update.

The main differences between the watches that have had any effect so far is the different stock watch faces and the design of the body.

This is the first watch I've had anyone come up to me in a bar asking me about my analog watch only to find out it is digital. That says a lot about the quality of the watch faces.

This watch comes with the best stock watch faces so far in my opinion. The band looks nice but I might look into switching the leather Moto 360 band on it and see how it looks.

So far best battery life as well. Lots of plus but only minus for me is the big bezel. So those are my initial thoughts of you have any questions let me know.

Attention to detail goes a long way I was hoping to rate things 3 but apparently that isn't between 2 and 4 on the #io15 survey

Remember that time I/O had real breakfast where you could sit down and eat. Then you show up to #io15 and get told to stand in line and wait for people to come around while you are outside #fail #ishouldhavegonetodennys

I could be wrong on this one but should it not say things I'd like to see in 2016? Thought #io15 was over

Well I'm prepping my thoughts of I/O this year in my head. Funs but off in so many ways. Will do a full review possibly on my flight home or will review the LG Urbane. Either Chicago I'm on my way home.

After seeing it's score on Zagat I had to visit this place and see if it is as good as everyone said it was. It definitely lived up to my expectations. I showed up was promptly greeted and seated. I sat at the bar and worked my way through the menu in that time two people came up to make sure someone had taken my drink order which was nice. Shortly after ordering 2 things of sushi and about 4 rolls they sent over some Miso soup which I've pretty much come to expect from a good sushi restaurant. After that they sent over some appetizer dish I didn't order but it was free and delicious but I sadly don't remember what it was. My food came fairly quickly for all that I ordered. While eating one of the guys behind the bar handed me another piece of sushi and let me know it was from the owner. Even what I didn't order was amazing. The Turtle roll was great. The California roll was fairly good. The Spicy Rose was very good as well. I can't remember the last roll I got but it was good as well. I highly suggest going there if you are in the area

Fantastic sushi place. It may pretty much always be dead and located in the last place you'd expect to find a sushi restaurant but the food is fantastic and worth a visit.

It's a little small and slightly loud. While I am picky in my food choices I can't find too much I like here food wise. What they do have though tastes good.
