Pretty interesting stuff here.

Still not sure how I feel about fingerprint readers, but I think the article is right in saying that consumers will do what is easiest.

It's also right in thinking that Apple doing it's own thing, as usual, could be a problem for everyone else. I foresee another lawsuit in 3.. 2...

In other news, a large company has done some underhanded things. 

Should we really be surprised right now? I'm leaning... no.

Apparently raw brains taste like sushi. Who knew?

I dunno about the naming of this first appetizer here.

Turds just didn't sound appetizing does it?

+Matt Tabish I didn't order them, but some guys next to me did. Looked pretty good for fancy jalapeño poppers!

This is terrible. Now I'm going to be able to use this to play +Hearthstone on my Nexus 10.

Way to be an enabler Google!
 
What a day!

Really not sure how to feel about this article. 

It just seems like the justice system too often relies on shaky science to gain convictions. The science improves, and then folks are released. 

Please note: I'm by no means suggesting that there aren't folks out there that abuse their kids. I've seen the fallout from that, and  its pretty awful.

Well, this is slightly troubling. 

Basically, if your parents were messed up, then there's a good chance you might be messed up too.

I'd hate to know what happened why those 4 women need them

This place was good. Service was a little shower than other sushi places I've gone, but the food was well worth it.

Good food, but not as Cajun as expected. Everything is cooked well, and the staff is very friendly and attentive.But somehow all the dishes were just a bit... off. I'm assuming it's because they serve Asian inspired Cajun food, so the flavor was slightly different than what I've had before. Still! This would be a good place to go if you've never had authentic Cajun food, or if you're looking for a slightly new twist on old favorites.

Definitely an authentic Mexican dive. Food is more from the interior of Mexico rather than the border, but still pretty good. My favorites so far are the Tacos de Lengua, and the Carne Asada Torta.

Everything about this place is OK, but not really great. Food is getting better lately, especially the mac and cheese, but the ordering process is confusing, and service can be a little slow.

Good for families, not so great for single folks like myself. The vast majority of the menu is served in family sized portions, which is how I ended up with a whole pot of soup at my table! It would've been nice if this was made clear in the menu or mentioned by the wait staff, but it's a small issue. The food itself was good, freshly made, no complaints there. Next time I'll probably stick to their smaller portions menu and just get a sandwich.

Went for lunch today and had a basic BLD Burger and potato salad. Burger was good, but overcooked (asked for medium and it was well done). The potato salad was also good, though fairly upscale, so don't expect country style potato salad. All in all a decent meal, though maybe a little pricey at $14 for a lunch plate and an Arnold Palmer.

Little home in the wall place, has really good aguas frescas and tortas. Pina Cola and Barbacoa torta filled me up pretty well.
