NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter captured a unique view of Earth from the spacecraft's vantage point in orbit around the moon.

Got the Nexus 6p, was dead set on the 5x (coming from the N5), but everyone was walking around with these big phones, so I gave in to the pressure of peers and went big with the 6p.

Audio
Got the OTG audio out(type c to type a) working with my dragonfly DAC. To be honest unless the source quality is very high (CD), then I really can't tell between the DAC and the headphone out. My headphones are the Sennheiser Momentums (so they're decent).The overall volume, as others have reported, isn't very loud.

OTG Cable:

Cases
Ringke Fusion Crystal
 - great grip, very minimal sides
 - good fit, could be a bit more snug
 - all port cut outs work, nothing blocked
 - hate the cover on the headphone port
 - like the cover of the visor
 - can take screenshot

Spigen Ultra Hybrid
 - a bit slippery, sides are grippy, but the back is very slick
 - very good fit, snug
 - sides are bigger than the Ringke, but they also hinder screen edge interaction
 - port cut outs are great, nothing blocked
 - does not cover the visor, which is good and bad
 - screenshot about 30% of the time

Google Adopted Case (50% off as a Fi customer)
 - great grip
 - very snug, hard to remove
 - port cut out is great
 - could not take a screenshot at all

Service - Project Fi
So far I'm very impressed. Came from Tmobile, which I was very happy with, but I get my phone and 3GB plan for the same price as my unlimited plan only. For people that need more than 3-4GB per month, there are cheaper plans, but I realized I usually use only about 2.5GB.

 - service is 10% better than Tmobile so far, I get 2G in some spots that I use to get 0 signal, and overall it's more stable
 - ability to switch between wifi/sprint/tmobile is seamless
 - billing is so clear, the UX on the billing statement and account management is a breath of fresh air compared to the status quo

So far so good on Project Fi. The transition from WiFi to cellular is seamless. Had T-Mobile before, and Fi gives me better coverage.

I would rock one of these in a heartbeat. The ones by Italdesign are especially good. The Ferrari Mythos, wow, just wow.

This is the universe as we know it, if not exactly to scale.

Got a nice gift in the mail from Project Fi, but the phone stand was a bit wobbly for the 6p. My headphones though appreciate their new stand.

The far side looks nothing like the side that faces us. After 55 years, we may finally know why.

Great tool to review all your settings about sharing and privacy. 
Google gets a lot of stick for its data collection practices, and that's little surprise really. I love many of Google's products, but that doesn't stop me

Can't wait to try this, maybe my 6p will arrive before this feature rolls out.

As far as taking my Model 3 deposit, I couldn't ask for a more efficient process. The line moved quick, and all the staff was courteous and communicative.

So much wrapped in one park. From ducks and ponds to swings and slides. Plus lots of quiet benches to read and eat.

It's good for what it is, a decent hotel near an airport. Rooms are basic, staff was friendly. Digital key is a cool concept, but sometimes took too long to unlock the door.

Surprisingly decent sushi. The all you can eat option was great, and the basic hand rolls were fresh and delicious. Lots of parking, and easy to find.

They have a little bit of everything, and it's the only local hardware store, so I'm glad it exists, but it's not inexpensive.
