Just tried (and failed miserably) to have a video chat with someone again. Video/Sound cuts out and is garbled, then ends call for no reason.. Other video chats work fine...

Agree 100% on the font issue pointed out here. Also annoyed by not seeing people's IM status .... 
 
Hey, Google+, we have to talk.

I don't mind the new layout so much, especially since it at least partially fixes the whole #whitespace  issue you had.

But I really really mind bad font rendering. And you've done something absolutely horrible to the font you use. And I can't seem to find the setting to fix it.

It looks like you are using a WOFF Roboto font. Which isn't horrible in theory, because the Roboto font isn't necessarily ugly. But whatever you are doing to render it should be illegal and counted as a crime against humanity.

Seriously, that's some nasty sh*t. This is the fuzziest font I have ever seen.

Maybe it's the WOFF rasterizer in Chrome that could suck dead baby donkeys through a straw?

Maybe it's that you scale the font size to be "resolution independent". Maybe you tested it on your 1366x768 laptops, and your 1920x1080 desktops, and then said "Screw it, that's good enough".

In fact, maybe you said "Hey, we want to make it equally blurry for everybody, and if you have the extra pixels, we'll make sure to align things on a half-pixel boundary just so that you won't get a better-looking font".

I don't know what it is. But it's bad.

Your WOFF fonts render pretty much sub-optimally, with the stems of the letters aligned at half-pixels to absolutely maximize the fuzziness from anti-aliasing. There's a black pixel core stem, and there are basically 50% gray pixels on both sides of it.

Have you ever heard of font hinting? 

Please give me my good fonts back. Don't scale things until they are a fuzzy mess. Ok? Give me a font with proper hinting, or give me the option to at least change the font and font size.

It's not me. It's you.

Great place to get groceries and fresh produce. Can be a little crowded with lines, but well worth the wait. Not cheap, but what is in SF...?

Unbelievably bad system pre security here. There is a small angry lady that absolutely everyone has to go through to check bags. She literally rips your luggage stickers out of your hands and commands you to take your luggage from A to B to C, and there's zero guarantee she will even remember you or give your luggage ticket back when you're finally ready to check the bags. It was an astonishing display of terrible service and planning on the airport side. The security check was standard and the TSA staff were friendly and helpful. Once inside, the airport is nice with some good views of the landing planes.

This place has become a joke in every way. They will stand at the counter with 20+ people waiting to order and ignore em all while taking and dealing with phone orders exclusively. They also recently raised their prices and reduced the sizes(?!). I ordered a chicken burrito and got something that went crunch when bit into, pretty sure there was something that can't be described as food in there. Ditch this place people, there's no shortage of good burrito in town and this ain't one of them.

This beach is awesome, just go in the water after a long hike and cool off. Then turn around and be amazed at the backdrop here, it's jaw dropping. Well worth the drive up!
