Adobe continues to amaze me with their algorithms. First the shake eliminator and now this...
Adobe's new Dehaze slider has been wowing photographers since it was launched for Lightroom and Adobe Camera RAW last month. We've seen what it can do for

I highly recommend that you read this. I found it impossible to put down (yes, I read it in print form because Bloomberg Businessweek is one of the best publications out there IMHO). 
The world belongs to people who code. Those who don’t understand will be left behind.

#io15 lot of sessions not recorded this year. Didn't see cameras in design talks, alcoves, lounge talks etc. Only 3 major rooms where recording was taking place.

Xbox gamers rejoice.  This is good news for me since my optical drive on the old 360 recently crapped out.  The idea of playing those games on the Xbox One is nice.
If you own an Xbox One gaming console and wanted to play Xbox 360 titles on it, Microsoft is granting your wish. At gaming conference E3, Xbox chief Phil Spencer announced that backwards compatibility is coming to the current-gen console.

These bean bags at the alcove sessions are too comfy. Falling asleep in the middle of a session (and it's interesting)

The kids love the zoo. One of the better zoos around. The new attractions (penguins, polar bear, skyride over Africa) are a big hit for all.

Very clean and nice place. Lunch was great and the sushi was excellent. Service by Emille was great. I would highly recommend this place.

This location has absolutely no concern for the customer or providing quality service. The corporate office needs to fire the management in charge and rethink their level of service. Incident # 1: I took in my Yukon for noise from brakes. I was told I needed new brake pads, rotors, etc. Fine, let's get it done. I had to leave my vehicle there, walk back home, get a ride to work, etc. Picked up the Yukon at the end of the day. As soon as I left, I was still in the parking lot when I noticed that the brakes were making a rhythmic thumping noise. Back to the shop. Had to leave it overnight so they could work on it the next day. Arranged for another ride to work. Went back the next day. I was told they fixed the problem. The problem was still there 50 yards from the shop. Took it back. Had to leave it again overnight. Mind you I was dealing with the manager at this time. He assured me it will be taken care of and that this was a safety issue. Repeated ride to work scenario, went back the next evening to pick it up. I had asked the manager to make sure that someone test drove it AFTER fixing the problem. The guy at the desk tells me he personally test drove the Yukon and the problem was fixed. The problem still existed, drove about 50 yards and came back to the shop. These are either the most incompetent mechanics or they don't give a f*&k about the customer or the quality of their work. It was only after the 4th time of leaving the truck that they finally got it right. Incident # 2: Took vehicle in for lifetime balance and rotation deal for tires bought from them. First, you must tell them that or they will charge you for the service. I find that outrageous since the first thing they do is look you up in the computer. Since my last experience with them, I don't trust their service shop, so I marked the tires with chalk to identify the tires that were on the front vs back. 3 hours later, I got a call to come pick up the vehicle. Once there, I noticed that the fronts were still on the front and the back tires were still on the back (no rotation). I am not even sure they balanced them. I was assured that the tires were balanced. Then I had to wait while they rotated them. So then I have to ask, how incompetent do you have to be to take the tires off, balance them and then put them back on the same location when the work order clearly states a rotation? Maybe this is their way to getting your tires worn out faster so you have to replace them more often. In short, incompetent, dishonest, high prices, and no concern about quality work from the head office. I would give them a wide berth if you can. I have had a much better experience at MIDAS hands down on any kind of service. Update: Had them repair a flat tire. The tire leaked again after a week. Took the vehicle to another Firestone. They confirmed that the original puncture was never repaired and that the tire was not repairable. They were upset that the Waldo Firestone is giving their company a bad name. Also, the tires were rebalanced since no one balanced the tires the last time I took it in.

Small place. Great food. Some of the best fish tacos I have ever had.

Food is great. if you don't speak Spanish, be ready to point out your choices on the menu. Lots of variety. Reasonable pricing.

Had the fish (sole) special. Probably would have done better at Captain D. They should be ashamed of even bringing that to the table. It didn't even look good.
