Ok Google,

This voice command feature on my Nexus 5 is amazingly almost useful. Better accuracy and tolerance to ambient noise would help a lot, but let's talk low-hanging fruit instead. These are features that would be trivial to add that would vastly improve its utility.

If it listened on the lock screen, it would be far easier to use one-handed without looking at the phone. It's a trivial change. It would be easy to have a setting for it if some people don't like that. Perhaps even more important, it should listen on the GPS navigation screen. If that screen is up, I'm probably driving my car, which is when voice command would be most useful. If I could direct it to read my notifications to me and dismiss them, that would be great too.

For what may be the first time in recorded history, I have observed comment spammers giving up on a site. It went from 8200 attempts a day to 6 in the last 24 hours, and 0 in the last 12.

It's varying between 20 and 90 a day. At this rate, the expected spam getting through is 2-3/year.

I would like for the word "slut" to become as socially unacceptable as "nigger".

I'd like to take a moment to thank Steve Jobs for showing the world that good enough isn't. Never settle.

Stopped here for breakfast while passing through. Some of the best Mexican food I've ever had.

The staff are knowledgeable and helpful. The range is clean and cool. The rental guns are in good shape and the selection is good. The practice ammo is cheap (for a retail store).

The location and live music are great, but as a restaurant, this place is terrible. The food was bad. My pulled pork sandwich had a small amount of flavorless pork on a fast-food style bun with some storebought barbecue sauce. It cost $12. I had a better pulled pork sandwich for less money at an actual fast food place in an *airport* a few days ago. Other food items were similarly bland, low-quality and expensive. The service was bad. Despite what looked to be a reasonable staff to customer ratio, our table went without attention from staff for 30 minutes at a time. The kitchen was also slow.

This is the first junk yard I've dealt with in 16 years of driving old cars that actually called me back when they said they would and had the part waiting for me when I arrived. I will be going back.
