I love the new Google Photos app. I just did a search on June 23rd, and got everywhere I had taken pictures on June 23rd of every year back to 2011. Apparently before 2011 I didn't have an pictures stamped June 23rd.

Really enjoying the Earth View chrome extension. There's new features like easier sharing (like this!) and 500 new views.
Earth View is a collection of the most beautiful and striking landscapes found in Google Earth.

It's hard to focus on work today with all the good news! This video is from the Google homepage today, at least for people in the US.

tl;dr: using cross platform tools for ease of use rather than quality of output can make for a bad user experience.
Cross-platform tools are popular with developers because they're convenient. That's not good enough.

Food wasn't great for the price point. Servers are nice, but for the price point you shouldn't have to bus your own table. Plus i saw one of the kitchen staff pick his nose which is unsanitary.

A-mazing. Really great food, well balanced. Menu changes daily. I recommend letting their knowledgeable staff plan your meal. Nice ambiance. Reasonable price point for the meal. Perfect for a post-SFJAZZ meal.

Mediocre Indian at best. Ended up throwing it out. Got stomach distress after eating it. I would avoid.
