Two Days To Pixel (and I can't wait)
On Thursday I should be getting my Google Pixel XL (silver, 128GB).  I pre-ordered it from Verizon last week, and today I got the shipping notification.  Today (Tuesday, 10/18) Google lifted the embargo on reviews and all the major tech sites have pretty mu...

Ordered my new Pixel XL last week ... I know it's not the true geek way but ordered from Verizon. They're my carrier, the phone comes with almost no Verizon software, all of it is uninstallable, and both Verizon and Google have committed that the Verizon Pixels will get software updates at the same time as the ones sold by Google.

One thing I was wondering - some of the Verizon web information has been a little confusing. Some places say the device will be delivered by 10/20, some say it will ship by then. Today (10/18) I got an email that it has shipped with a tracking number, and my receipt says I got "free" 2-day shipping, so it is looking like 10/20 will be the day!

Notes on the Google Street View Tour of "Haven"
A while back my girlfriend introduced me to a TV show called “Haven” which airs on the SyFy channel.  Haven is about a fictional town in Maine where a portion of the residents suffer from supernatural curses called “the Troubles”.  Through the experiences o...
