The chrome Android app merge tabs feature, love or hate? Personally it's convenient until I inadvertently have 13 tabs open.

I like it. To me it's very fluid being able to switch through apps and tabs together. Without having to go into chrome and then selecting a tab. It's all right there.

What's your favorite square watchface? Mine are the instaweather ones since the ambient screen displays the time and other info in very clear manner. Also the fresh out the oven Form watchface kooks amazing with muzei integration.

Back on the phone ultra GPE just to update it to cm 12.1. Prepping it to be my travel phone/tablet 2 in 1. Lollipop 5.1.1 feels super snappy.

Sony SmartWatch 3  - 
 
Android wear 5.1.1 having some finicky battery drain on the smartwatch 3 for the 2nd day in a row. It was doing fine and then suddenly losing almost 1% every minute. I just restarted the watch, hopefully it'll behave again. Cmon Google can't you get your shit together?

Well, mine had been ok over the last 2 days, except one occasion Friday evening when it dropped 15% in 20 minutes. I've now got the g4, so it'll be interesting to see if that has any effect (unlikely)...

Yep, I'm very happy with the UI and functionality of AW now. Battery life is now such that I don't bother displaying or checking it anymore. I keep the watch always on and plug it in when I get ready for my day each morning for 45 minutes or so. 

It does everything that I can think of now and has become part of my routine. I hardly look at my phone anymore except to browse my G+ feed or browse the web.. Better G+ integration would be good.

The new Google fit watch face is a battery killer for me. The Sony smartwatch 3 somehow loses 20% just by sitting on the table for a few hours. It's normally very power efficient when idle (maybe 4-5% for idle overnight). Any got similar issue on other watches?

Half of the shop sells many coffee equipments and type of beans. However, the beans are not as good as some other specialty coffee shops in HK. Could be a roasting issue. I didn't notice it in the ice-drip I bought there, but it became very apparent after experimenting with their beans at home. They are overroasted. It's a shame too because the shop seemed very promising, from roasting their beans every other day to providing a (local) mail order service. I tried brewing using hand-drip (V60) and Aeropress, and I varied beans amount between 12g-14g. In every cup brewed there was a hint of motor oil, stronger in cups with more beans. The other half of the shop is a sit-down coffee shop. The seats were very packed and ambiance was not desirable. It would be hard to sit there for more than 15 minutes. The 'Good' quality is mainly attributed to the vast amount of equipments available which is great for a home coffee brewer. However, I would look elsewhere for beans.

Address update: 1/F, 13 Leighton road. Coffee is surprisingly good. Server was able to customize my omelet with bacon and gruyere cheese for no extra cost. Massive win.

Nice cafe at the lobby of commercial building in a rather industrial area that surprisingly has the right equipments. Ordered a hand drip and was good. Got 3 kinds of beans to choose from.
