Most surprising things that I learned from +Alton Brown's AMA on Reddit today:

1. You can find seasons 12-14 of Good Eats on Amazon Prime
2. Alton packs heat

Also apparently I'm supposed to eat at Empire State South: http://empirestatesouth.com/. It's a farm to table restaurant just a few blocks from where we used to live in Midtown.
Let's see, I host shows on Food Network and am preparing my first stage show to go on tour later this year. I'm working on a CD of weird food songs a...

Edit: +Sarah Davis gave me permission to go a little nuts here. So if you're listening Google, I'll pony up for the hardware and plane tickets. :)

Oh, man I wish that I could blow $1,500 and a trip to New York on this. I've been trying to think of a compelling application I could write for Glass for months now. Best I've come up with so far is Shazam for people's voices or facial recognition. Something that you can surreptitiously trigger to identify who you're talking to based upon a previously defined local database. I can't tell you how many times I've been at a family reunion wishing for that functionality.

Um... If you do get it, forget New York! San Fran, mister!

Does anyone else have trouble with the Hisense Plus going into a sleeping state after a few hours of inactivity? I turned off the screensaver and screen off timers, and I can't find any other settings for an automatic shutdown.

When this happens, I can start the box back up (faster than a normal boot cycle) by pressing the power button on the remote. Then my UVerse box displays an HDMI error, forcing me to unplug and replugin the cable. To say this is annoying would be an understatement. It makes the box more trouble than it's worth.

My other two Google TVs are Sony branded. They are first gen and I don't have this issue with them. The Hisense box worked great for a while, at first I thought it was overheating, now I assume that this is an update gone horribly wrong.

Anyone know of any hidden settings for shutdown?

I agree with +Wil Wheaton. It's time to cancel my service with Verizon. Does anyone know the details of cancelling on a contract in this case? I still have nine months until my Galaxy Nexus is completely subsidized. My wife's phone should be up in September. Personally, I feel that this NSA issue is grounds for early termination fee exemption based upon Verizon's privacy agreement, however I'm sure that they will feel differently. Any advice?

It's not that I think that other carriers are any better. I just think that this is the perfect moment to send a message to the private companies complying with these orders. Would you rather pay the penalties of not complying or lose a significant number of customers?

Makes me wonder about MagicJack services and their leased lines. If you think about it, I'm sure it goes deeper than we know.

Seriously? Why doesn't Google+ want me to read, what I'm sure is a lovely post, by +Koushik Dutta? I like the new layout and all, but that just seems silly.
