My team at Google has been very big proponents and innovators of USB Type-C. I've worked on two Pixel products now that use the connector and its related technologies (Power Delivery, Alternate Mode, USB 3.1). It really is an amazing little connector.

However, now that there are more and more Type C products rolling out from Nexus, One+, Nokia, and more, this I have found painfully true : USB Type-C will only be as good as its ecosystem, and more specifically, the worst of its ecosystem.

I have started reviewing USB cables on Amazon because I have gotten fed up with the early cables from 3rd party vendors that so blatantly flaunt the specification and I want to hold them to task.

You may not just get weird behavior from your devices with these bad cables... What some these vendors are doing is downright dangerous.

I've been contemplating setting up a blog where I document bad cables and perhaps give some insights into USB Type C as well.

Embrace Burns

This is the first piece of art to be engulfed in flames here at Burning Man.  They set it off just after sunrise...  it was so amazing to watch.  I usually don't post two photos in a row of the same subject matter, but I think these two together show the ephemeral nature and the full alpha to omega of what happens here every year. #BurningMan #BurningMan2014

An Embrace from the Past

Here's the amazing sculpture called "Embrace" at Burning Man this year.  We had both epic sunsets and sandstorms this year.  I took so many photos!  See the girl in this photo and how her camera was so nicely protected in some kind of a baggy situation?  Mine was not.  I'll write a whole blog post about "dealing with sand" at soon on http://www.StuckInCustoms.com — I see ALL your comments but can't respond to them all.  But I'll write a blog post about it all or do a video!  

Anyway, 98% of people were over on the other side of Embrace while I took this photo. It was me and a small smattering of photographers who secretly knew where the best view was from!!! :)

I think this is one of the secrets of photography.  Once you get into it, you see the world in a whole new way.  Even if you're not taking photos, you usually know the best place for your eyes to be. :)

Reboot your cable modems.  Especially if you are in or near an area that might get Google Fiber.

Dragons Coming  (And Denver PhotoWalk reminder!)

Here's a new photo I just finished on a long plane ride from New Zealand to the United States (where I entered legally, btw).  I took this photo a few weeks ago in China down in the Guanxi area.  

And we're getting closer to the Denver Photowalk!  I am getting a few more details and will put them up on the event page here soon: https://plus.google.com/events/c4ccoc9l4287n8k1fjut1i7prh8
