    Wow, MrMobile posted two photos to compare the cameras on the Essential Phone and the Pixel on his Instagram. The Essential Phone photo was destroyed by the Pixel. I love the idea and the look of it but I don't think I could swallow paying $700 for just an okay experience. I can't. It was even hard for the Robin, which was cheaper of course. I don't need the best but I need it to be better than this...

    Much of this stuff can be improved by updates...the camera app is bare. People also need to temper their expectations - this is a high end, gen one concept product.

    The Nexus One when Google had no clout and US carriers were ruling the land with an iron fist was being sold unlocked for $630 in its day. Actually the Essential Phone has a lot more in common with the Nexus One than the Pixel.

    History lessons are good sometimes...not all ideas and approved are truly "new" or original".

    12th century. Most of the recent stuff is from the 16th and 17th centuries.

    Yup, Heathrow Express and then Circle Line to hotel. Round-trip for two people was cheaper than sharing an Uber one way. Darn, surge pricing

    I haven't used Uber yet to be honest. I know it's a big thing here and in the US but I still haven't had a need yet.

    When I went to Santorini we used a regular taxi service to the airport which was cheaper than using Uber, even with a discount.

    Airport surge charges are a complete pain I agree which is why we took the train home which was cheaper than getting a taxi.

    If you get the chance drop by when it's dark to get some great reflective shots in the fountains of the National Gallery.

    The fountains have lights in them that produce different colours as well. I think that's still going.

    It's also a lot more quiet, though it is Friday.

    I forgot to mention in the email I sent you Neil's Yard. If you make it over to the Seven Dials be sure to check it out.

    It's also where one of the cafes I mentioned is. Good place for lunch, if it's not too busy.
