I couldn't wait until the end of the season.  Bad enough I need to wait until Monday until it is posted on HBOGo.

Dear +Sphero,

Disney has just presented you with the marketing opportunity of a lifetime.  This adorable and iconic character is already stealing the spotlight of this long-awaited epic.  Not only that, but the movie premiers at the height of the holiday season.  And by all appearance, this little marvel is a close cousin of your own flagship product.  If ever there was a golden opportunity to license a movie character, it is now.  Don't pass this up.  Sincerely,

The Internet

Apple Premium

Motorola updated their Moto 360 offering today with the sleeker Mono-link band.  The design similarity between this and the Apple Watch gives us a pretty good idea of Apple's price premium.

+Eric Soto it's 999 for similar look. Moto 360 doesn't come with a rubber band. And watches primarily come with circular faces.

Big Hero 4?

While 'girls toys' have gotten the bulk of criticism in recent years for re-enforcing outdated stereotypes, the problem goes well beyond pink vs blue.  In this recent case, a fabric supplier decided Big Hero 6 was a 'boys movie', and that including the 2 major female characters on the pattern would turn off young boys.  So the final pattern includes only the 4 male characters.

This is quite ironic given that Big Hero 6 was widely acclaimed for its character diversity, even using "Woman Up" as a catchphrase.

While I don't believe there was malice in the manufacturer's design decision, I wonder if they realize their actions help create the behavior they claim to be reflecting.

My experience at this Best Buy was fairly limited and uneventful. However, the reason I decided to write this review was a very positive experience dealing with customer service afterwards. An item I purchased came off-sale just before I made the purchase, but went back on-sale a few days later after I had left the area. The corporate customer service was unable to help me over the phone, so in a final-effort I called the store itself and the store associate Amber was very helpful. After taking my name and number, she processed the price adjustment and called me back. This saved me a lot of trouble. Thanks.

A good airport option, but poor service. I recently flew from DAL and was happy to see Moe's as a food option. Vegetarian options can often be hard to find at Airports, but I knew Moe's could accommodate. Unfortunately however, when it came to ordering a simple burrito, they were out of rice, black beans, guacamole, and queso (cheese). This essentially left me with only lettuce and tomatoes for filler. Despite me asking if there were any other vegetarian toppings, the reps didn't point out the tofu (which I took for meat). After re-walking the airport looking for other options (without success) I returned to Moe's. My disappointment continued when I was overcharged for adding tofu, even though guac and the majority of my preferred fillers were out. I understand that supply snafus occur, and could have overlooked it. However, the impolite and dismissive staff really made this a negative experience. I will leave 2 stars rather than 1 however, since it was in fact the only veggie-friendly option at the whole airport.

My new favorite lunch spot. The food is extremely good. I also like the self-ordering kiosks, so no waiting in lines. If you have trouble choosing, I recommend the Mediterranean Sandwich .

I've visited a few times while at the Sunnyvale farmers market. The coffee is good. I recently tried their breakfast - the breakfast burrito and sandwich - and was pleasantly surprised.Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area.

The prices are decent, but appreciated considering that most of the nearby stations are quite overpriced. It also has a car wash in case you're car gets as dusty as mine.

Since finding this Trader Joe's, it has become my primary grocer. The produce is always fresh, the staff is friendly, and the prices are extremely reasonable. And unlike most other grocery stores I've frequented, there are never any lines at checkout.

My favorite spot for weekend breakfast. The decor is cute and the staff has always been friendly. Although I'm a coffee person, the coconut tea here is a special treat.
