So awesome to see these guys launch!
 
If you haven't heard yet, we just launched one of the most forward-looking developer products: the Google Drive Realtime API.  This API allows your application to build realtime collaboration on Google infrastructure with essentially no overhead.  This is huge.  The ability to add operational transforms into your application into a performant way with an established data model allows you to make game-changing updates to your app.  Don't think like a chat client, think like Google Docs: multiple cursors from multiple people in the same file at the same time editing the same words!

Check out the blog post below and our documentation for more, but if there's one thing you should be doing today it's checking out this API and building a test application.

the entire time i read this book, i couldn't stop saying it was my favorite book i've ever read. it has a romantic yet honest view of bombay/mumbai while keeping you engaged with action, philosophical talks, and gut checks that inspire self-reflection. my only two regrets were 1) not being able to devote more time so i could read this more quickly and 2) finishing the book. even with weeks between readings, i was immediately consumed by the story once i picked it up again. it's been out for 10 years so maybe i'm late to the party, but oh well.

So yummy, our go to place on the weekends for lunch. Chicken plate or wrap with garlic sauce is a must try, the sauce is so good. Gyros are excellent as well. Really nice folks, will give you a run down of the menu when you first get there if you've never been.

The cupcakes were absolutely delicious - everyone raved about them at our wedding. They were incredibly fresh and moist with frosting that melts in your mouth! Lauren was incredibly easy to work with - setup was very affordable with no silly charges for stands. She came by and set up the cupcakes in a wonderful display without us having to watch after her. Thank you so much for a hassle-free and yummy wedding day!

Best coffee I've had around here - the americano was so delicious, I came back the next day and it was consistently good. Definitely going to become a regular here.

Sold me a reliable car at a great price and didn't stop helping until we were completely happy with the car. This is a small family owned shop and everyone there was very helpful. I test drove the car, which was in great condition except for a couple cosmetic issues, and purchasing the car was easy. There was a crack in the windshield caused by the recent cold snap, and he immediately called someone to come replace the windshield. There was one other small part that was making a lot of noise on the highway. I'm not sure the exact details (my dad has the car), but they were happy to take the car back in and fix it for no extra charge (which would normally be about $250). I really like how they provided such great service and handled any issues we had. I wish all car dealerships were like this.

We grabbed dinner at the Met while looking for our wedding venue in Beaver Creek. Holy cow, what a pleasant surprise! The food was absolutely delicious along with awesome drinks (must try the barrel-aged manhattan!). The tacos, tuna sliders, bacon wrapped dates, cake bites - it was all so delicious. Plus the crazy enomatic 16-bottle wine machine they have there, which is not only an awesome conversation piece, but it’s a great way to try a bunch of wines rather than having to get a glass at a time. The food and drinks were so good, we decided to throw a happy hour for our guests the day before the wedding. Again, the food was absolutely delicious. They handled our 50+ guests with ease, the food was just as good at scale, the venue fit our group very well (could have taken even more). Service was excellent - Thair served excellent drinks while Kenny and Rob served and kept an eye on everything throughout the afternoon. Chef Steven was a pleasure to work and chat with. Kenny was a pleasure to work with - he kept on eye on our budget to make sure we had enough food for everyone without going crazy. Overall, this was an amazing venue to eat at either on our own or with a giant group. Prices are very reasonable and the food is unmatched in the village. Thanks so much to these folks!!

If you go here, work with Max Pavlov! I had been here in the past and met a couple salespeople who were standoff-ish and actually a little rude. Max was the exact opposite - he knew the cars inside and out, was incredibly friendly, and did not put any pressure on me. You don't meet many car salespeople like him anymore, and it was very refreshing working with him. I worked with Brett Lange for the lease, and he was very knowledgable and pressure-free as well, helping me weigh my options and in the end leaving the dealership very happy with my decision.

Absolutely delicious Korean BBQ especially considering its Colorado. I've been pretty disappointed by some places in NYC and LA but this place was great! The service is not too great but I don't care that much. Really great group meal especially for anyone that hasn't had Korean BBQ before!
