I hadn't realized before that every small hole is really a pinhole and it's like having so many pinhole cameras.

I'm really excited about the launch of Search plus Your World! Being able to search for my personal content is one of the biggest changes to search since Universal Search.

Really compelling story about racial politics, Ali's duplicity and both boxer's amazing determination and strength. Also about Frazier, still frozen in time in that bitter rivalry. Frazier died today, apparently in very modest circumstances and largely forgotten compared to Ali.

The food tastes good but I find most of the choices a little rich/oily.

Interesting article on a problem I had not realized- that education in India fails in part because the curriculum is far above the actual level of the children- rather than pushing them harder it makes their classes meaningless.

I was expecting more. The fried green tomatoes were great. The louisiana drum was very good - but over salted. The étouffée was also fine. The service was excellent and the atmosphere upscale but not stuffy.

Excellent food, humdrum atmosphere. Of the places we ate at I would rank them as K Paul - great mains, service, ambience and starters Mulates - also felt more local, good service, not great ambience Cochon - great food, a bit on the salty side Commanders palace - confusing service, not very Louisiana specific it seemed, but good food. Cafe Soule - not in the same ballpark, but still ok food

Great ambience and service. The food was very good but a little rich for my taste (a lot of salt and bacon on every dish it seemed). The bean pie was probably the best dish we had. Based on the dishes we had at least (small plates) the restaurant is not particularly New Orleans... No blackened, spicy, dishes, which disappointed me

Happened on this place while passing by - Shannon Powell was playing. The best live performance I've ever seen, partly because of the audience. Irving himself appeared and played with the group. Did not want the sets to end.

Great, except for the location! An old house, well appointed and maintained with good staff. The breakfasts are good and the host has a ton of good suggestions. But you are not near anything interesting. The cable car is very convenient but slow. Walking to the French quarter is ok but the walk is not very pleasant and not something I'd be comfortable doing at night.

One of the reasons I like visiting Bangalore. Central, lovely modern architecture, clean with friendly and competent staff. Wonderful.
