Possibly the best white elephant gift ever?

Turning off NFC until their consortium can develop their own alternative to Apple Pay and Google Wallet does not seem like a winning business strategy to me.
Two of the nation's biggest drugstore chains pull the plug on their informal support of Apple Pay as they work with a consortium of retailers to create a competing mobile wallet.

Having fun at Google
Introduction
I love living and working right in the middle of amazing tech innovation here in Silicon Valley.  Every day, I get to see creative ideas meeting powerful technology platforms like Android, and the amazing users experiences that result from this.  Technology is changing the world, and it's changing our lives.  

I like to keep fit, working out regularly and biking to work when I can.  I love spending time with my wife and kids.  We love good food & wine, and traveling together.  I'm a fan of techno, house, downtempo, and jazz music.

Excellent French food, great wine selection including some very good wines by the glass. We loved all of our courses. Excellent, friendly service, too. They are also on the fast side for a French restaurant (we were in and out in about 2 hours). Definitely will be back!

They definitely use good fish (love the chirashi) and they have a lot of creative rolls. However, they can be extremely slow, and service can be very spotty. It's not unusual to not be able to find your server when you need something, and it seems there aren't enough sushi chefs to keep up when they are busy or have a large party (the place is really big).

Andrew is a fantastic piano teacher - talented and very patient with kids. He will teach you good technique - not just how to read music. I like his choice of teaching materials and books.
