I'm going to try this soon. It seems they have fixed a lot of the problems they had with HBOOT partition sizing.

awesome.
In an interview with Charlie Rose, Google X founder and researcher Sebastian Thrun extolled the virtues of artificial intelligence, higher education, and self-driving cars. A researcher on Project Glass, Google’s wearable augmented reality heads-up display, Thrun said that “the hope [of the project] is to really get things out of your life, not into your life”. When asked what the glasses could do, Thrun seemed to make a subtle gesture with his h...

I think that Thrun's Udacity program that he talks about at the end of the interview is just as society-changing as Project Glass but it doesn't get as much play.

With the success of Khan Academy, MITx, TED, et al. the future path seems clear. I think the fact that he talks about how the administration at Stanford tries to make an argument for the location of learning rather than the knowledge is telling.

I mean come on, Harvard's engineering dept. isn't teaching anything that MCC's engineering dept. isn't. They don't have black magic Harvard engineering knowledge no one else has.

For some reason this place never seems to be busy, so you always get your food super quick. The sandwhichs seem to have more flavor than Jimmy Johns, but they are kinda of in between Subway and Jimmy Johns. There is an employee (can't remember his name) that works here often who is very nice and pretty funny, he kinda makes this place stand out compared to the other Jersy Mike's.

This restaurant is actually (kinda) attached to the hotel, but that doesn't seem to matter. The food is pretty good hear, and they did a good job to make the place look classes. Employees are very nice and tentative. You still kinda get the feel that it's a restaurant hotel, but if you can look past that you won't have any issue with anything else.

I've only been to this Target once, however that one time it was very, very messy. I think it was messy because it's near the San Diego College, but Target should really invest in a janitor if this is the case. Also I went to get sandals (you know cause there is a beach in San Diego) and they only had 3 different pairs of sandals, and they all weren't very good, and all pretty expensive. I would have thought that this Target would have a better selection since they are near the beach.

Pig & Pickle is a very interesting place, it's hard to corner it into one type of food. They have a lot of meat, but my vegetarian friend tells me they have good vegetarian food as well. They have a lot of interesting drinks (local beers, mixed drinks) and almost all of their food is local, because of this it's a bit expensive. I'm giving it 4 stars because the menu is a little difficult to read; the formatting could be better. The menu is a minor thing, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Pig & Pickle to anyone.

A lot of people seem to love The Baked Bear, there is almost always a line out the door. "Custom ice cream sandwiches" is a unique idea, which is probably why they are so popular, however it suck that there is always a line out the door. Honestly, they might want to look at increasing their prices. If you like ice cream and cookies/brownies you have to check this place out, however the cookies always seem too hard, therefore making it difficult to eat with a spoon. You can ask them to warm it up, but they don't warm it up enough, it'd be nice if they warmed up the cookies separately, and then added the ice cream. Your best option is to just use your hands and get super messy.

I love T-mobile, I've been a customer with them for a very long time. However when I went to this location there was a very long wait. They don't have a lot of phones on display, and all of them are anchored down so that you can't even pick them up; no drawstring or anything. The employees are some what (not as bad as Verizon, AT&T, etc) pushy, you definitely get the vibe they are sales men/women and want to sell you stuff, even if it isn't a good fit. Combined with the lack of phones, not being able to actually move the phones off the stand, the long wait, and the pushy sales people, I don't see a very good reason to go into the T-mobile store. If you have questions for T-mobile just call them. If you want to look at a phone, you'll have to go else where.

The sushi here is pretty good, and it isn't very expensive considering it's downtown. Also it's cheaper then the other sushi places around it (Moira, Squid Ink, etc). It's also neat to eat sushi with purple rice! I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because one time I went the waiter wasn't very tentative; we were waiting a long time for refills, and mainly for the check. However the last time I went the waitress was awesome, even when it was crazy busy because of comi-con.
