Sunnyvale Farmers Market

Reviewed By 3nvi

The farmer's market takes place on Saturday mornings in downtown Sunnyvale. Lots of fruit and vegetable stands, flower stands and some good food. There's a lot of parking within a couple of blocks. I particularly like the little Crepe stall. There's also a stand that sells really good Olive oil. I go fairly regularly to stock up on produce and fresh flowers, and grab breakfast while I'm there.

Massive space upstairs perfect for meetings and conferences as they have many large spaces. The food was fantastic and the building modern. Looked briefly downstairs on the museum and it looked to be very interesting and informative if you’re technoor technology inclined.

Rancho San Antonio County Park

Park featuring 23 miles of running trails.

Reviewed By Aparna J - San Francisco, California

A moderate level hike through a few hills. Doesn't get too steep but you'll be going up quite a bit (and then down). There isn't a ton of tree coverage so bring your sunscreen and avoid during the summer.

Levi's Stadium

Reviewed By Christopher C

We attended the Foster Farms Bowl game. The stadium is very nice with state of the art technology. It was a great football watching experience.
It had the typical stadium food at the typical stadium prices. Good kettle corn. Molded plastic seats with backs were comfortable and came with a cup holder.
Unfortunately, some of the food vendors were not open for the bowl game (local San Francisco vendor carts) and Bourbon Pub was also not open. I was looking forward to trying both. There isn’t much around the stadium for a pre or post game party. We ended up hanging out at the Hilton pre-game until the stadium opened.
We used Uber for transportation. There are designated Uber pick up and drop off areas.

Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve

Reviewed By Charles C - Mountain View, California

Rancho San Antonio is a true hiker’s paradise right in the center of the hustle and bustle of Silicon Valley! It’s huge, just under 4,000 acres with 24 miles of hiking trails. The Open Space Preserve supplies a detailed map of all the trails, get a paper map at trail heads or PDF on website (paper map larger). You can hike an individual trail or combine a few to form loops of various lengths. Most trails are people-only, but there are some that allow bikes and horses (I avoid those – marked on map). There are 3 or 4 places where you can begin your hikes (parking can be a challenge on weekends, but weekdays are easy). I usually park at the end of Mora Drive, which gives you access to multiple trails. Trails vary in challenge. An easy beginner’s loop is the Rogue Valley trail, about 3 miles. If I want more of a challenge, the Chamise Trail is good, about 5 miles out and back and takes you through the Duveneck pasture, a quiet tranquil (400 foot elevation gain). The PG&E Trail is challenging, 4 miles with a 1,600 ft elevation gain. Wildcat Canyon is a good trail, shaded mostly, and brings you back to the Deer Hollow Farm where they keep some animals. Black Mountain is the most challenging, another 1,800 feet in elevation gain after you get to the end of the Chamise trail! Be in good hiking shape and take your time! Take lots of water with you on hot days! Don’t step on the lizards! (Western Swifts are everywhere);’

Las Palmas Park

Reviewed By Dennis H - San Jose, California

We've taken advantage of this park for forty years as tennis players, dog walkers, picnickers, diners (at Cafe Kabob), clean-up volunteers, event-hosters, and just plain relaxers. It is a beautiful, tree-shaded, expansive, lawn-covered park in a residential setting that contains water-features, playgrounds, picnic tables, rentable areas, tennis courts plus pro shop and restaurant, a fenced dog park, etc.. Highly recommended!

Walking, biking, planes and picnics. Rather an all inclusive, something for everyone recreation area. Model aircraft, the so called planes, play in the meadow and are fun to watch.

Apple Inc.

We’ll be closed for renovation starting June 15. The Company Store is the original Apple Employee store located at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino. We are open to the public, but we are a little different than your local Apple Retail Store. While we don't sell computers, iPhones or have a Genius Bar, we are the only place in the world that sells Apple logo t-shirts, caps and accessories. So, if you find yourself in the San Francisco Bay Area, please stop by and visit us.

Problem with the 6+ iPhone

The touch screen on the iPhone became unresponsive and there were flashing white horizontal lines coming down from the top to the upper quarter of the screen.

I spoke to A total of five extremely helpful Apple support people to troubleshoot. In the course of this, I learned there were not surprised by this problem and two of them guessed that my phone must be a 6+.

If this is a KNOWN problem, just like the battery on other phones, Apple should replace the phone without charging for repair. My phone was a little more than two years old, and I believe that is too early for this kind of hardware failure. The phone had only normal, careful handling.
