Yup, it’s a hot one today.

One of my favorite breweries has taken over the bar at Whole Foods — awesome! @ballastpointbrewing

Congrats to Mark! This is my every morning #CGCoffeeMoment.

In my brief time of home roasting, I have heavily relied on so many cool, friendly people to really perfect my technique.

This happens so often to @jmeylor that it is time I named them. This little guy’s name is Larry. He really has a knack for settling down in the wrong places.

My new toy.

Well, I’m never using @TWC after having this happen to me over and over. http://t.co/zgdyHaMeps


I’ve deleted the same emails from mail.app probably a dozen times this morning.

.@Recode‘s podcast has quickly become a favorite. I love @karaswisher‘s no BS style and focus on great content. Guests have been A+ too.

I cannot wait to be out of this state. http://t.co/nDJyjSFX85


Guy had his last day of work at Apple Store. As he was walking out, the staff stopped what they were doing and applauded him until he left.

RT @CoffeeGeek: And FYI, for that up to $50/lb you’re paying Keurig/Maxwell House, the farmer who’s beans are used? Probably got $1. Or less. #killthekcup

RT @SteveRattner: Amazing – @Uber is valued at $50bn, about the same as $GM, the largest US automaker which sold 4.86mm cars in 1st half of 2015 alone

As others have noted, this is a really poor analogy. Please stop. Both have user experiences. Both are designed. twitter.com/briansolis/sta…

Especially with the advent of the Prime button, charging $1 for every button press would psychologically diminish its value.

I’ve made 30 orders this year, so I’d be annoyed if Amazon had a ceiling free shipping offers: hbr.org/2015/07/the-lo…

I should really use wifi more often. http://t.co/yz2m0bJfTj


Ballast Point’s Grapefruit Sculpin is one of the best beers I’ve ever had. flip.it/TC3ss

I actually discovered this workaround the other day, but I didn’t want to make it so public… Easy hole to plug. flip.it/yMLEY

Wow, Amazon had a TV ad. For Prime.

Interestingly, @AppleMusic has 7x more followers than @Spotify just one day after launch, though.

.@Spotify performance, speed, curation and experience are so far 100x better, but still giving @AppleMusic a chance here and there.

As someone working on enterprise software — I get why launching a new cloud service is REALLY hard, even for Apple.

Impactful http://t.co/6K88te1olr


I usually don’t believe that I have a choice when offered light, medium, and dark roasted brewed coffee… at an airport.

A golden axiom to follow when doing anything; especially when shipping software. #dockercon http://t.co/ZsBikpxcue


Love @angelscup. Really fun experience and the coffee selection is fantastic.

Ah — and it seems the toolchain is becoming stronger for podcasting as well: podclear.com

We are truly in a golden age of podcasting if a show can be sold out with zero insight into who the guest is.

On average, a breach against a corporate network is occurring over a 200+ day span of time — the hackers are doing recon. #CIOExchange

The average cybercriminal is 35 years old and likely involved with organized crime. #CIOexchange

The impact of Moore’s law from a crime perspective? Decades ago: a guy with a gun. Today: 100 million people at the same time. #CIOExchange

Narco’s have built their own private cell phone networks to commit drug crimes. #CIOExchange

If you are keeping score, I have tweeted about edu, weather. Now hearing about IoT powerboats at #CIOexchange.

@IBM is a cool place to be.

Half of @weatherchannel biz is gathering data to empower enterprises to predict IT impact w/in 2 hrs of a weather event. #CIOexchange

Weather is one of the most important factors of enterprise IT. Those that can gain insights from weather data gain advantage. #CIOExchange

40% of 8th graders will take on a career that is not known today — software requires new technical skills in companies. #CIOExchange

Security systems should act less like walls around a castle and more like an immune system — vulnerabilities are inevitable. #CIOexchange

Just realized I’m going to be in Chicago for when the @NHLBlackhawks have a chance to raise Lord Stanley’s Cup /c @AdamMGunther

Can’t wait to watch now THREE Apple related webcasts this weekend: Keynote, SoTP, and @thetalkshow with @pschiller — congrats @gruber!

Anyone else finding Austin AT&T service to be completely useless lately?

So if I buy a bag of your coffee… You get to hire interns to work you? What a concept! http://t.co/u90IFdeCXG


Did we already talk about this? Because I really hate this. http://t.co/7DeiV1t382


Content providers are making poor advertising decisions, turning the mobile web into a cesspool: tarun.info/prototype/2015…

I’ve always hoped for an app that plays music based on pace… cool to see context driven experiences like this: theverge.com/2015/5/20/8630…

Well designed package tracking page: http://t.co/3KGLeSFtNF


If the product isn’t to your liking but you feel like you are in the demo, then give good feedback instead of money.

People who buy inferior products in the name of wanting “competition to succeed” are in fact hurting that cause.

Sport today is at such a high standard… http://t.co/bxwaXXdQ5t


Wake up to a light tap
Check weather
Work on @SlackHQ
Take a phone call
Call for an @Uber home
Order food @Seamless

All from your wrist.

Now, fitbit could be working on new stuff that warrants the IPO but today’s Fitbit doesn’t seem compelling outside looking in.

Fitbit is the best activity tracker on the market. But, like the flip phone, doesn’t have a place in the next five years.

Coffee really benefits from rest after roast. 24-48 hours or so at minimum.

The new Ruby blend at @CaffeMedici is superb. Definite grapefruit coming through, but then some chocolate as well.

The disaster at Blue Bell is a reminder to never rest when you are on the top. Sad to hear about it but negligence leads to future failure.

Getting some work done out of @IBMWatson building today. http://t.co/q7dI0eUvlW
