I usually eat so much of it on Thanksgiving day and the days following that I feel like I couldn't eat any more for another year. Thanksgiving... a U.S. Thing. So Obvious I…

Big Guy on Google Project Fi

Once upon a time, I was a Verizon customer. For the wife and I to have unlimited data, texts, and some number of voice minutes, it was about 180 bucks a month. This was insane to me, but I really like having mobile data. And it was Verizon, so the performance was very good. Then…

Big Guy on Haiku: WWW

H. T. T. P. On. A series of tubes is born. Cat videos, please! OK. Why Haiku? I've always been fascinated by haiku for some reason. From time to time I may do some more of these if it is received well, and I feel inspired to do so. I love reading them as well,…

Big Guy on the Google Pixel 2 XL

Update: A previous version of this post claimed that if you had Google's Preferred Care on the Pixel 2 XL, that you could get two replacements for free. This is untrue. The Big Guy needs to do a better job of reading his emails. You still have to pay $99 per replacement, but they did…
