Hi, Fi!
Google's own wireless service is beginning to roll out. Invite only for now and it only works with the Nexus 6 handset.

Just because I don't have anything else to wait impatiently for... what a year!

An open source Windows?
Perhaps not now... but it could be in the cards.

Real-world tests matter more than numbers
We can get into a day-long debate on the best benchmark software to measure a device's performance, but really... in the end of day, real-world apps tell the final tale.

Better keep up with the updates!
A (barely) official schedule of update expiration dates, has been released in one of the Microsoft forums dedicated to insiders. If you are an insider, and still haven't upgraded to the latest build (though i have no idea why you wouldn't), be prepared to see random restarts, and eventually, permanent system shutdown.

Yeah, it might sound harsh, but picture yourself fixing a million bugs, then pushing a new build to Windows Update, and still getting a million reports about stuff you just fixed.

Do yourself a favor, and just keep up with the updates.

Here's Windows 10 "Cool Mode"
For those who have installed this unofficial build, there is a pretty easy registry hack that enables a dark mode that seems to reverse the colors of system interfaces and apps. Chances are we'll see this mode available in the commercial version, more likely in tablet mode.

Finally micro computing that's worth a second look
Loving the specs, however I would have gone the extra mile and position the connectors on the narrow edges of the board, which allows for the board to fit into slimmer custom containers like tin cans, or other tubular containers where it's easier to fit small cooling fans on at least one end of the build.

And yes... i would totally build a computer inside a soup can.

I discovered my car vandalized and broken into by some local thugs, late at night, and spent an entire night between talking to SCPD and credit card companies, till 5 in the morning, AFTER a full day at work, at which point i was exhausted, i just needed a break. There are few things that impact you as badly as your home or car being burglarized. You lose your sense of safety, and control. Finally, at dawn i gathered the strength to look for an auto glass repair place, and i had very few choices, as i was hit at the worst possible time for me for many reasons. I picked Action Auto over other shops, mostly because Jason sounded genuinely sympathetic, so i made an appointment, and showed up nearly three hours early. I wasn't even thinking, as i was completely sleep deprived. Jason was really cool about it and had the replacement window delivered early than expected. When i brought it in, my car was littered with broken glass. It was in the door, under the mats, every-freakin-where! By the time Jason was done, i thought i had a new car. It was cleaner than before the incident. There is no price to peace of mind, and i really appreciate the professionalism and awesome service.

Chow mein is acceptable, the pork tasted actually OK. The salt and pepper shrimp was good, though not as spicy as I expected it. The real problem dish was the half roast duck. Half of it was barely decent, clearly frozen, gummy skin very hard to chew through. I endured less than half of it until I bit into the quarter of the duck that was extremely overcooked and bitter as heck. Anybody who knows anything about poultry will instantly realize what this poor excuse for a chef is doing. The duck was not only frozen, it has been clearly left in contact with the Fridge's walls long enough to be burned. Then instead of throwing the ugly thing away, the chef decided to try his luck and overcook that abomination so that the unburnt side would be edible. That is called cheating and its just a disgusting way to turn good customers away. I wouldn't be as bitter if the waitress didn't start arguing about taking that thing off the tab, so we ended up paying half price for awful food that I wouldn't get paid to eat. Well, there goes the tip!

Since i started working downtown some years ago i ate there almost daily (work days) and couldn't get enough of their tri-tip sandwich and double cheeseburger. Great food, great people and they remember you! These guys serve food all day long, hundreds of orders a day and they still remember names and faces! Prices are reasonable, starting at your average 6 bucks for a hot dog all the way up to the top of the menu, and still affordable. 10/10 on the take-out bags. No leaks, no mess, perfect office food.

There is no better place than the Alameda Artwork for a Giclee printing business, and Greg and Sharon do a fantastic job and they take the time to walk you through the equipment (that Betterlight Scanback is something worth seeing...!!), and will give excellent pointers for artists looking to create limited edition copies of their artworks. It's definitely worth checking their studio, also for art photography!
