Yeah, and with good reason.  I'm hoping to hitch a ride to Mars w/ Elon Musk before all hell breaks loose here on Earth.  The outlook for humans in the future does not look good.

Here's something neat. Google has introduced offline video playback for YouTube mobile users. That's an exciting feature but there's bad news for most..

The look and feel of Google's "Material Design" in Android 5.0 Lollipop is fantastic. We have covered it at length here on BGR — see our review of Google's Nexus 9 for a good overview. The basic id...

This has been such a long time in the making, it's easy to forget how special music on YouTube is, when you're working on this stuff day after day. This video reminds me.

Story
Tagline
Product Manager at Google & YouTube. Keen skier, sailor, artist, procrastinator. Newly minted dad.
Introduction
Originally hailing from fabulous Chadvegas, Essex, UK. Now scratching an existence in San Francisco, California. In-between times you might have been unfortunate enough to meet me in Manchester (1989-1993), Belfast (1993-94), London (1994-2002), New York (2000), or Denver (2002-04).

Have already filled my lifetime ambition: I learned to ski deep powder (thank you fat skis). It's metaphorically and literally all downhill from here.
Bragging rights
Shook Paul Weller's hand. Was inside the reality distortion field when the iPhone was unveiled. Once had to apologise to all the women (bar one) at a startup. Named after my Uncle Tom, who was a stuntman.

The best cafe in Bernal Heights, by a country mile. Great food, relaxed atmosphere and (almost) all the staff are awesome and welcoming. Great for families, lunch, or a quick coffee and pastry. Even good for an informal dinner - esp the pizza!

The food at Hillside is superb - as good as any restaurant in nearby Mission, and much better value. The decor is basic, but charming. Staff are friendly and attentive. But the food is awesome! Check it out while it's still relatively undiscovered.
