Just got one of these for my birthday the other week, and wow, it's awesome. If you want to make cold-brew coffee, this thing is probably the best balance of cost, simplicity, and quality.

The infuser-style pod piece hooks into the lid to keep the grounds in during brewing, and then you just pull out the infuser when it's done and dump the grounds. The bottom of the infuser drops out for cleaning / disposal, and grounds don't stick to the filter material. Cleanup really does just take seconds.

I'd buy two if I had a reason.

Looks good.  I'll try it out soon.  Always down for another way to (easily) make good coffee.

I'm going to be live on TNT in just a few minutes to talk about the ZenWatch 2! (Mostly because everyone who has actually used it is at Computex in Taipei and asleep).

edit: and done

Pretty sure the IRS hasn't had PR this good since they got Capone.
The criminal investigation unit of the IRS expects to add to the list of 14 FIFA officials and corporate co-conspirators already indicted in this week’s soccer corruption scandal or whatever the fuck, the New York Times reported Friday evening. But it’s still not clear whether the U.S. will go after the biggest fish, freshly reelected FIFA emperor-for-life Sepp Blatter.

This is getting undersold, big time. If it works, this could transform how we design and interact with electronics in a huge way. Like, the first touchscreen huge.

I agree +David Ruddock​ but I think you should throw Project Jacquard in there too. Those two dramatically different methods of input have the kind of potential impact you're referencing.

Beautiful - marine layer rolling over the mountains of the central California coast. The camera and airplane window don't do it justice. I love my home state.

It's quite nice. Monterey stays nice and cool through most of the summer months because of that. Sometimes it feels like January during the summer here.

...and then October comes and we pay dearly for it.

SHUTUP AND TAKE MY DEPOSIT
“We don’t give a shit about times on a test track.” That’s what Mazda’s engineering guru Dave Coleman told me. And that’s not only what makes the 2016 Mazda Miata an amazing car, but also a great Miata. The definitive lightweight sports car is back and it’s bringing a renaissance along with it.

Yep. Considering this as an option for a lower-budget alternative when I have to offload the Cayman.

I want to thank +Chevrolet +General Motors +Buick for the awesome ride while I'm up in the Bay Area for the Chevy Android Auto announcement and Google I/O! It was a really generous gesture and it was a fun car to drive (Buick Regal GS AWD). 

I also think it actually looks pretty damn good.

Finally, I'd like to apologize: I accidentally broke their embargo on Twitter like a big dumb idiot the other day (for like 5 minutes before someone quite impressively caught me), so sorry about that guys! I'm just happy they let me keep the driving the car after I did that.

This is supposed to be Harmon Kardon's big "connected technology" partner that will do their Wi-Fi streaming technology and IoT connectivity for their speakers / home media tech. Their website looks like a complete joke.

The delivery is priceless. I hope these corrupt assholes at FIFA go down hard.
There were a lot of important things to discuss at today’s Department of Justice press conference about the corruption charges being brought against FIFA, but let’s worry about that stuff later. For now, we can focus on this dude from the IRS, who stepped up to the podium and unleashed hell:

On the way to SFO! Well, apart from being stuck on the runway here in LA because of fog (in SF, not here). I won't be attending I/O, but I will be in the area and at some of the festivities this week. If anyone at I/O wants to hang out, let me know!

Food is extraordinarily overseasoned. Some of it is pretty good, but generally it's all just way too in-your-face with the sauces and such, even for Thai food. Decent bar when it's not crowded, but when the techno and fog machine start, count me out.

OK bar on the weekends, bartenders pour light and are hard to alert. Food is unique to the Sacramento area, and you can get some authentic Eastern European cuisine, but it'll cost you, and the service is unbelievably slow. Live band in laderhausen, enough said.

Food was decent, service was even slower than Little Prague. Pricing is beyond the quality of food you're getting. Will not return.

Best bar in Davis, hands down. Live music half of the year 3-4 nights a week, friendly bar staff, and reasonable prices. Whenever I visit NorCal I will always make a trip to Sophia's. Good Thai food, too, not gourmet but it's definitely tasty.
