Let me share a story, a story that chronicles the universe's attempt to destroy me, and my inability to be defeated.
Last week I was cruising down the freeway on my way into work. I was streaming some tunes and sipping on my morning cup of joe, just being awesome. Then, all of the sudden while taking a sip of my warm beverage ... EXPLOSION!! I casually glance towards the noise and see my passenger side rear window has exploded all over the inside of my ride. I nonchalantly set my coffee down, pick a few pieces of glass out from my collar, and glance in the side view mirror. I do not see any glass being strewn across the freeway so I take another sip of my beverage and continue on my way into work. I've got places to be and things to do. Nice try universe.

I spend most of my day in meetings, make a couple calls to arrange replacing the window the universe shot out, and head off towards home. Once again, I'm back on the freeway, streaming tunes, and being awesome when I hear screeching tires. I see the car up ahead to the left slam on their brakes and swerve in to my lane. I respond by causally changing lanes to the right just in time to witness three cars rear end one another (no injuries). Silly universe, you're going to need to try harder than that if your aiming to take me out. I make it home, unscathed, pour a frosty heffe from the tap and enjoy my evening.
A couple day after getting my window fixed (and an oil change) I go to start my ride up only to discover it won't start. Obviously, the universe killed it. Missed me again.
After a brief two day stint in the shop the ride is running again and I remain indestructible. I now have the following statement for the universe:
Universe; I cannot be defeated, so quit messing with my ride.

Some More Thoughts about Project Fi

First off... I’m still using Project Fi.This post originally started as a response to a comment about people quitting Project Fi too early and not letting the Project grow and improve... but it got long, so now it's a blog post. Boom.
I agree with many that Project Fi is still in its early stages, in “Project” mode, and has not been around long enough to work out all the kinks. The things some people say it offers that other services don’t (cross device calls and texts) can be achieved for free with Google Voice and there is very little difference to the end users. The biggest things Project Fi has going for it are these two things:

1. WiFi Assistant

This could/should be huge… like really super duper huge. Free high speed WiFi all over the place. Stream and browse at will! That said I’ve been on Project Fi for 4 months and have only had 3 or 4 keys. This needs to improve drastically in order to mitigate the large price increase people coming from far more data friendly plans would…
