I like not seeing ads. Contributor has worked fairly well, though I wish it worked even more places. Interesting to see $3 of my $5/month going to wunderground as I check the weather daily.

Oh, I never bothered to look for a wunderground subscription. One nice thing is just not worrying about what site I'm going to go visit -- if they're using that ad network the payments just work. I'd rather subscribe to e.g. 3 ad network opt-out things (like contributor) than picking 3+ sites where ads bother me the most. I just want them gone everywhere.

I miss LineDrive maps.
Once upon a time, there was a website called MapBlast. This was during the wild frontier days of online road maps about ten years ago, when MapQuest was king and Google Maps was but a gleam in the ...

#GDC16 VR! Demo thoughts: Text universally terrible - resolutions too low / work arounds tedious. Quality tracked hand controllers, a must.

So that's one unit I didn't try at the show, because lines were too long and they weren't pervasively used by everyone else. But, standard move controllers is still a consistent advantage over mix-match anything. Vive wins of course, their controllers seem quite well designed, function well, and will be consistent with that platform.

Web Bluetooth API Sample Apps
I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with the Chrome team’s implementation of the Web Bluetooth API. Today we published my latest sample app to control Anki’s Overdrive racing cars: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vg2e1jOug00
Anki has done a great job using a mobile app to use BLE to control the self-driving racing cars. Now you can do the same from a web page without installing any apps.

For my first sample app I made grumpy cat fly using the PowerUp plane: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRMcMDIyIGQ
It was a bit tricky to get the ballast just right for the balloons but coding the app was simple using the PowerUp online docs.

Then I wrote a web app to print some text and a graphic on a BLE thermal printer: https://github.com/WebBluetoothCG/demos/tree/gh-pages/bluetooth-printer
I contacted the printer OEM to get access to their SDK. Printing text was easy to get it working, but the graphics required more complicated bit-level pattern logic.

Probably my favorite web app was to awaken the force in Sphero’s BB-8 toy:
https://github.com/WebBluetoothCG/demos/tree/gh-pages/bluetooth-toy-bb8
Sphero has an SDK and the BB-8 toy works mostly like their earlier Ollie toy, so there are lots of sample code online from other developers that I learned from. 

I’m very excited to see how all of this will come together with Google’s IoT strategy. You could use the Physical Web to discover the web pages for physical devices and then use either the Web Bluetooth API for devices that are not online or the Weave API for Brillo devices that are online. It is going to be a very interesting year for hacking devices!

Chrome is rolling out support for the Web Bluetooth API for desktop, mobile and ChromeOS. You can follow the Web Bluetooth implementation status:
https://github.com/WebBluetoothCG/web-bluetooth/blob/gh-pages/implementation-status.md
Take a look at all the great sample apps we now have for the Web Bluetooth API: https://github.com/WebBluetoothCG/demos
Follow these instructions to write your own Web Bluetooth app: https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2015/07/interact-with-ble-devices-on-the-web

Unique views, and cute small lighthouse. Check the season for whale and sea lion spotting. It's a long and windy drive here, though, plan to take your time and stop along the way.

Good base for making day trips in the area. Nice pool. Nice continental breakfast with several options. Freeway noise, and somewhat slow service (e.g. slow to replenish pool towels). Simple rooms.

Crowded, but beautiful redwoods to hike through along a creek. Want to avoid the crowds? There are many other redwood locations near San Francisco, try the hidden gem of Sam McDonald Park!
