This article isn't only a fun read, it's also a good review of all the security measures built into Android. It's why I'm not a fan of installing extra security apps.
But here's the dirty little secret security software vendors don't want you to know: There's really no reason to be scared.

Maybe you saw that great Star Wars acapella video going around the other day? This one by +Peter Hollens​ is just as amazing. Plus it includes a kick ass "Duel of the Fates."

Here's the Pixel C!

I've always been a fan of larger tablets because I enjoy reading large-format material like roleplaying game book PDFs and comic books on the big screen.

The Pixel C doesn't disappoint. Big, crisp screen. Best keyboard for a tablet I've ever used. A great addition to the +Android family.

Hello New York City! The view from our hotel room does not suck.

+Karen Wilcox​ and I are passing through one of our favorite cities for just one night. Take in the view from Top of the Rock, fancy anniversary dinner, and tomorrow a delicious New York bagel before we hop back on the train for our travel to North Carolina.

Nice view. Last time when we visited NYC, 8 years ago, our view was some wall and a trashcan. :-)

I saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens on opening night here in the US. My brief and spoiler-free review: it was quite good!

I've been a lifelong Star Wars fan. I saw Episode IV: A New Hope when it came out originally in theaters as a young boy and it made a lifelong impression on me.

I'm not as down on Episodes I - III as many are, even if I do admit that they have many, many flaws. A lot of these are made up for by the excellent cartoons Star Wars: The Clone Wars & Star Wars: Rebels which fill in a lot of gaps and are, frankly much better and cleaner stories than the prequel trilogy.

So I'm happy to see a feature film of such high quality, even if it took the setting in a direction that didn't quite match what I'd spent the last few decades imagining where that story would go (sorry, I can't explain that without spoiling). Congrats to the whole cast and crew for pulling that off, and I look forward to seeing where the story goes!

Our second (and last) day exploring Boston included a stroll through the Public Garden and Beacon Hill neighborhood, followed by an afternoon in Harvard/Cambridge.

Tomorrow, train ride to NYC!

Introduction
Hello! I'm an Android Community Manager for Google.

Here on Google+ you can expect me to post publicly about:
  • Google, Android, and Nexus
  • Occasional other tech news
  • Geeky stuff like comic books, video games, tabletop RPGs, and scifi & fantasy books/movies/TV
  • Infrequent posts about my travels, social dancing, and wine
Folks in my Friends/Acquaintences/Family/Co-workers circles will also get more personal posts from me.

Looking for other Community Managers of Google's consumer products? Here's the team:
About me:
I'm a native of the San Francisco Bay Area. I love rain, clouds, fog, and wind. I feel most at home in California coastal woods or tall snow-covered mountains. Squirrels are amazingly fun to watch and play with, but cats are the best animals to bond with. In college I wore black high-top shoes, part of that elite cadre of black high-top folks -- you know who you are. Technology is a drug I cannot help but be addicted to. And winter is my favorite season of the year, which is why I use Wintergrey as my handle around the web.

I'm a geek, but hopefully one with obsessions beyond traditional geek bounds. My niche interests include gaming (computer/console as well as tabletop RPGs), dancing (
social ballroom and Irish ceili), comic books (American-style and some manga), movies (domestic or foreign, Hollywood or indie), animation ("traditional" and anime), skiing (snow, not water), martial arts, science fiction & fantasy, progressive rock, period events, yadda yadda.

The views expressed on
 Google+, in my blog, via Twitter, on Facebook, and elsewhere (except via official Google channels) are mine alone and not those of my employer.
Bragging rights
I can quote Star Trek 2, do the rise-and-grind, roll for initiative, and update Google+ from my Android phone. Possibly not all at the same time.

Neighborhood liquor store and deli with a surprisingly diverse liquor selection. Not as inexpensive or large as the nearby BevMo but family run and they often carry stuff the big stores don't have.

One of the few local quality restaurant/bars. The cocktail menu is interesting with many things I hadn't seen before, however it has a very tropical bend. The menu is primarily Italian with a hint of California cuisine, nice food but nothing to swoon over.

If you've been to one BevMo you've been to them all, and this one is no different. Fortunately, BevMo's seem to be universally good. Essentially this is a warehouse full of alcoholic beverages and paraphernalia. Although they rarely carry much truly exotic and hard to find stuff, they do have a massive assortment of wine, beer, and spirits to stock your bar with. Keep a look out for their famous 5-cent sales, where they sell a bottle of wine for 5 cents if you buy another bottle of the same stuff at full price -- you can explore a lot of wine this way. This particular BevMo is relatively new as of the time I'm writing this, but the staff seems to have their routine down. The store is clean and well organized. They tend to run out of boxes during the 5-cent sale so I recommend bringing your own boxes or totes.
