Pretty sure at least one of my bosses could only read magazines, usually about databases and what you should be using :-)

It's been such an awesome experience working with the incredibly talented design team and engineers behind the Moto 360 and Android Wear. I'm very exciting to be announcing our product today.  

And you gotta love reading titles like this on an iPhone fan blog :-)

It's very exciting to be able to show the world today what I've been working on since moving to Motorola -- the Moto 360.  It's a perfect example of art meets science :-)
It’s time for a watch that looks and feels great and gives you the information you need, when you need it. It’s time for Moto 360, a truly modern timepiece, designed by Motorola, powered by Android Wear. The wristwatch ha...

Awesome, Mike!  Can't wait to see it at IO :-)  With the same guts, you should consider changing the external shell & bezel with many different design styles to attract different demographics of users.

When's the last time you saw an uncaught exception just displayed to the user (complete with full stack trace) on a website you visited?   And to think they're handling medical records.

Technology lover
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.

Delicious coffee, lots of choices, made a cup at a time. My favorite is Tantalizing Turkish. Service is really friendly and polite, but don't bother swinging by at peak times (e.g. morning commute) if you don't have 10-15 min to wait for your coffee. They have a hard time keeping up with the line. You'll love it if you don't mind the wait, though!
