On my way to the ferry and work on this beautiful Monday morning. A snapshot of Princess street leading to the main street Bridgeway of our beloved Sausalito.
Union street festival is fun, but my personal favorite is the North Beach Festival. Ever since I first strolled along SF streets back in 2009 I have seriously fallen in love with this neighborhood. It's San Francisco quantified. See you there on Saturday!

Happy Memorial Day dear friends! We just finished our breakfast and are preparing for a relaxed holiday. Later this evening we are invited to Sarah's dad Richard for a dinner. It's actually catering but when my dear father in law invites us for dinner it's so sweet!!!
After the water leak in our neighbor's garage in early March we have assessed the condition of our own (they are built in a set of three) and found it in need of new pipes. Hmm... guess we'll have ourselves a chance to clean out our extremely cosy garage, honey.
We all know there are big plans for the man made Treasure Island, the biggest yet in San Francisco. But now also George Lucas is chiming in on it. His museum first "went" to Chicago after leaving the Presidio, but there's a law in nature that says what's once been to San Francisco always returns. Go Lucas, go!
The new Nvidia GTX 1080. It's faster than two 980 in SLI and a beast of a card. Maxwell is thus being outdated and Pascal is the new King. No third party benchmarks have been done yet so stay tuned. The GTX 1080 will be out on May 27th. And it will break the bank. Big time.
Maxing out GTA V in 4K with 3 (!) Nvidia 980 cards sounds promising, right? Unfortunately the vram doesn't stack so you'll be sitting in front of your monitor with an average framerate of 6.2. Yep, so much for your expensive powerhorse. Check out some other framerate guzzlers HERE.
Guess how much moolah you need to be considered "wealthy" in the Bay Area? Put down you coffee cup first. $6 million. Yep. And $1 million to be considered "comfortable". You've got the figures right HERE if you want to know more. Craazee!
The most brilliant game series of all time unveils it's 3rd installment today. Say goodbye to work, family and sleep. Or simply don't touch the game at all. Because you WILL be caught in its grip if you press that button: DARK SOULS III. Whatever your decision, do watch the beautiful launch trailer below:
The new BART railcars were showcased last Wednesday in Hayward. They're sleekier and have more doors and the system map will be shown on a monitor instead of a poster. The old cars have more or less looked the same since 1972 so it's about time the Bay Area commuters get to ride in a more future proof train set. Let's hope the agency will step up the cleaning as well. How many of us have been able to look out the windows without paying sad attention to the dirty dirty panes? Never have I seen clean windows on a BART car. Ever.
OK guys. Ever wondered how a First Person Action Movie would look like? That is, a movie shot like an FPS video game. Well Hardcore Henry is exactly that. Take a look at the trailer below. You better brace yourself for this will probably be the ride of your life!
In 2009 I saw a video from Boston Dynamics with BigDog, a robot walking through snow and slippery icy roads. This is their more humanesque version of it - Atlas. And yes, it's still just as hilarious when it almost falls over because of cyberbullying or obstacles!
I've listened to this very talented man in San Francisco a couple years ago and it's about time he receives it: The Game Developers Choice Lifetime Achievement Award. Congrats Todd!
