Dag there was a good sunset walking back to the hotel tonight. Nice light all around.
Arrived safely in Dublin and jumped right into a work project. Didn’t have much time for sight seeing but fingers crossed there will be some slots available.
I will say, if you ever find yourself in Dublin and you need to get to the city from the airport, the Airlink bus is an extremely good deal and quite convenient.
I enjoy long layovers, where I can wander leisurely and enjoy the bustle.
Where I can eat at my own pace and look up why Chicago’s airport has the code ORD:
A defunct community just west of Chicago called Orchard Place became the site of a military (and later, commercial) airport called Orchard Field. In 1949, the airport was renamed O’Hare International Airport to honor Edward O’Hare, the U.S. Navy’s first flying ace and Medal of Honor recipient in World War II. Its International Air Transport Association code, “ORD”, remained unchanged.
These images are not only unrelated to each other, they don’t really sum up what was a glorious, almost summer-like day.
The digital dashboard of the Audi A4 was likely my favorite thing about this year’s auto expo, and that’s only because I’ve never sat in a Tesla. Though I fiddled with the controls of the virtual cockpit and felt like it might not be as neato in driving practice. So yay for pretty, but I’ll take an old fashion gauge, thanks.
I can’t take my eyes off the new Toyota Prius taillights.
Not sure how I feel about graphic patterns on a dashboard, in this case, the Chevy Spark.
The Civic has come a long way, and now I can somewhat fit comfortably in the driver seat and have a little headroom. The styling and suite of technology included are impressive. (Save for the chrome plastic thing across the grill.)
Somehow this D-pillar blackout treatment on the new Chrysler minivan works.
Finally saw a Renegade up close. That detail in the taillight is suspect, kawaii.
I’d been looking forward to this game since the announcement two years ago. As a fan of Panic Software, Olly Moss’ keen design and Jane Ng’s environmental work, I figured it would be a beautiful thing, and it is. I kept pausing in my virtual tracks and taking photographs of the tv to capture the scenery (until I finally realized the Playstation can take screenshots).
I thought the ending wanted a bit more oomph, but really this game was largely about the journey and story. In that regard, it hit the right notes and I hope this is the beginning for many more chapters in the future of developer Campo Santo and team.
