The View from the Front Seat of the Google Self-Driving Car
After 1.7 million miles we’ve learned a lot — not just about our system but how humans drive, too.

Whether you’re craving deep dish pizza or pad thai, starting today you can order food from some of your favorite restaurants directly from Google search results.

When you search for a nearby restaurant on your phone, you’ll see an option to “Place an order” in the search results. Just tap that, choose the delivery service and you’ll be taken to their website to complete the order.

Initially, you’ll be able to order via six providers in the US — Seamless, Grubhub, Eat24, Delivery.com, BeyondMenu and MyPizza.com — but we’ll be looking to add more in the future.

We are finally on the cusp of an Internet of Things. As such, there are a lot of design questions that are coming up. This looks like a useful resource.

How the "There's an app for that" mentality leads to bad design:
Author and designer Golden Krishna believes that we’re quickly becoming a society that’s obsessed with our screens, and that the companies making and marketing apps aren’t doing us any favors.

Some of the best cocktails in SF. My favorites are the Mt. Tam (Gin, Gran Classico, Kina l’Avion, Sweet Vermouth) and Double Date (Date-infused Rye, Whisky, Sweet Vermouth, Amaro, Cinnamon Bitters). I don't like sweet cocktails so I was skeptical about the date-infused rye but it was amazingly well-balanced with just the right amount of cinnamon bitters. The jerky is really good too. I liked the pineapple/jalapeno jerky and the Jamaican jerk spice jerky even though it could have been a bit spicier.
