“Does this image need lens flares?” I asked myself.
“You bet!” I replied.
“How many?”
“A fucking hundred”

A month with Fi

Almost a full month on #ProjectFi  , have only used 304MB so far, most of that is from a out of town trip where I refused to pay for WiFi.

Have been taking advantage of pretty ubiquitous free WiFi and making most things update on WiFi.

Now that I can get a credit for the unused data, I've found myself more prone to use wifi calling and leave the cell radio off which has increased battery life tremendously.

One of the funner things I got to do for this years' Google I/O was designing a shirt for our SMEs and Udacity staff working on the Android courses we've just announced.

Fresh & Easy stocks less brands than Safeway or Whole Foods and has less hours (8A-10P for F&E, Safeway is 24/7) but IMHO more convenient. There aren't any staffed check out lanes, everything is self scan. No need to make small talk if you are having a bad day. F&E has coupons in the flyers they send out and they accept most manufacturers coupons. They don't double coupons.

Great little restaurant. Well priced great Thai food. And they are exceptionally fast. There have been several times that I've gone there to grab takeout. I've ordered, ran to the starbucks several doors down and by the time I returned, my order was ready. Lunch can be a little crowded. I've never not gotten a seat but did have to sit at the counter a couple times. They can make the food as spicy as you want and don't dumb it down. Their "hot" is what is as hot as the Thai restaurants I've dined at in ethnic areas of larger cities. Most of their entrees are under $10.

I had the Warm Spicy Lamb Cabbage Rolls as a starter, and the Local Chicken Bomba over Rancho Gordo Cannelini Beans as a main, and Apple pie à la mode for dessert. Great California cuisine. Light but filling at the same time. Other than being slightly pricy, would definitely go back.

Since moving to Mountain View, the restaurant at this location has gone through at least 2-3 refabs where they totally changed the cuisine. I have to say that SteakOut is my favorite of the 3. They have a great and reasonably priced selection of beers and they have CurryWurst (German street food - sausage and fries with curry ketchup). The menu is big but not massive, it seems clear that what is on the menu are things that they can do well.

They went to great pains to give you the atmosphere of Texas. There were cow hides and rodeo pictures, saloon doors and even a cactus!The menu advertised that the chef trained in Texas and I can safely say it was a decent Tex-Mex restaurant. There was a nice hit of spice in the things that were supposed to have it and they pour drinks pretty stiff. My margarita, for which I had to wait a bit too long, was mostly alcohol. We sat at the bar and saw them pour shots for other guests. They were easily 1.5 oz shots. Some things used local variants of ingredients, like for example, my friend's fajita was accompanied by a slice of beet with non-romaine/iceberg lettuce and my bacon burger had this not quite mayo concoction, but to focus on those things means that they got a lot right. Minor gripe: They charge by the mozzarella stick. A somewhat insane 24 CZK or $1.20 PER MOZZARELLA STICK.

When they say spicy, they really mean spicy. Bon Chon has a good mix of Asian inspired dishes to complement its staple, chicken wings. The restaurant is a bit small but the service makes up for it.
