The flaky Wi-Fi radio / infinite rebuffering breakdown was fascinating.

Chrome 64-bit is 25% faster at media, more secure, and crashes 50% less than the current 32-bit build. Wow.

I'm somewhat surprised that there's a net gain in performance. Typically doubling the size of every pointer in the program does terrible things to the cache. (Terrible enough that the extra registers don't make up for it.)

Presumably this is part of the reason why they haven't moved to 64bit until now, but maybe not.

Pretty cool. I've been using Chrome Bootrap to achieve something similar.

https://github.com/roykolak/chrome-bootstrap
 
The chromium team is adding in the last chromium build some native-looking extension options pages. Yes, you read it correctly! No more extension tabs but a nice consistent user experience for developers and users.

It's still early but developers can already give it a try quite easily by adding the "embeddedExtensionOptions" permission to their extension manifest and enabling the experimental chrome://flags/#enable-embedded-extension-options flag in the last chromium build. Then the "options" link in the chrome://extensions page will simply open a dialog containing the options page¹.

One of my absolute favorite Android games. It's amazing how faithful it remains to the original while at the same time being entirely touch-controlled.

The best burger I ever had was when I came here for Google I/O and it had the best-tasting, juiciest burger I've ever had. It almost tasted like a steak. It was absolute pure heaven in my mouth. I got it for lunch then came back and got it for dinner before I had to leave the next day. Excellent service as well. Probably the only thing that makes me sad I live on the opposite coast.

Good airport, with a more confusing layout than Logan, but good restaurants and facilities.

The room was good, checking in and out went without incident, however the real downer was that there was no heating so I spent most of the 60-degree nights curled up under the covers. No real soundproofing either, which was annoying at some points. That said, things were sufficiently clean, and I'm usually a stickler for that.

A great convention center to play host to Google I/O. I guess my favorite part compared to the Boston Convention Center where I've attended PAX East is also the worst part: it's smaller. This means that the session rooms are thankfully so much closer together, but it also means that some of the session rooms (11 and 12) had to be on a separate floor. I also kinda felt having the displays and kiosks spread throughout all three floors felt a little unstructured.

Workbridge first contacted me on June 13 after one of my former coworkers referred me to them. Met with them on June 26 and they had set me up for an interview on July 6 with a company I believe is a really good fit. By July 9 I had a brand new job with very minimal exertion or fretting on my part.
