Awesome blend of seahawk and Seahawks!
http://www.seahawkart.com/
Isabelle, an artistic 14 year old Hawks fan, created her version of the Seahawks logo (shown above). Digitally illustrated by her on an iMac using Sketchbook Pro & Wacom Intros Pro. We shared it with friends and fellow Hawk fans and have had a huge amount of interest in buying prints.

I like this concept. The personal nature of a call, with the (non) urgency of a text.

Interesting review on a difference between Apple and Google: marketing.
Why do people think Apple Pay is so innovative when an equivalent feature has been part of Android for over two years? This question was originally answered on Quora by Andrew Hamada.

As of the last Motorola Assist update, the Meeting functionality only activates for meetings on my primary calendar. Since I have my "Work" calendar as my second calendar, it is no longer going silent during any of my work meetings. (Both calendars are selected in the settings menu, and it was working fabulously before the most recent update with the Home functionality).

Anyone know a fix for this or if this is a known bug?

I can confirm I have both calendars in settings > meetings. I tried your suggestion +Robert Littleton but it still didn't pick up events from my second calendar (and yes, I confirmed the meetings are set "as busy").

I uninstalled the Assist app, which just removed all the updates that weren't baked into the Moto X at time of manufacture and it's working great again. Guess I'll just wait for a fix before updating the app.

Never noticed this before. In google maps you can find the phrase "Cali es Cali" emblazoned on the hillside (no such sign is there in actuality) across from Chipichape in Cali, Colombia. That's awesome!

The reference is to a common local phrase (and lyric to popular song) of "Cali es Cali, lo demás es loma" which translates to "Cali is Cali, the rest is hillside" and is a remark used to bolster city pride.

They seem beatable in first halves, but unstoppable in second halves.

Fun tool to play with. In particular, if your city optimizes traffic in one direction during certain hours of the day (i.e. lanes that change directionality) you can clearly see the impact! 
 
This is a fascinating experimental app: it lets you explore traffic conditions around the world by picking a start point and seeing where you can get from there in ten minutes, either by car or on foot, at different times of day and week. It's kind of hypnotic to play with.

To use it, go to http://www.flaviogortana.com/isoscope/. Click on a point on the map to set your seed spot, and use the controls at the bottom left to set the departure weekday and hour. My one quibble with this is that it focuses on a 10-minute travel time: that's great for looking at extremely dense cities like London or New York, but it's a lot less informative for places like the Bay Area, where a 30-minute radius would be much more interesting. 
This tool shows how far you can travel in 10 minutes in ghostly splotches and tendrils.

"No tickets are currently available" should instead read either: 
i) Tickets to this event have not yet been made available. Check again soon.
ii) Tickets to this event are no longer available No point checking again.
