Dot Com Pho – The Electrifying Edition

Dot Com Pho Seattle headed back to the tried and trued Pho Thanh Vi for the most electrifying edition to date. All together, five people made it out to the International District for the weekly event, including the touchy feely couple. We separated them to avoid another touchy feely episode but there was still some blessing of the legs.

For this edition of Dot Com Pho, we have three new non pho dishes, how not install an Invisible Shield on an iPhone, Mr. Chicken who don’t eat squid, trying to gracefully get in and out of a Tesla Roadster, and the most electrifying gadget of the week ever! Anyone is welcome to attend Dot Com Pho. Follow me on Twitter to find the time and place of the next one. I hope you enjoy this electrifying episode!

    <3 the Tesla. Always have… even if it's just a Lotus with an electric motor.

    1. John Chow says:

      It’s way too expensive for what it is. There are so many other cars I would rather spend $120K on.

      1. PPC Ian says:

        Wow Didn’t realize the Tesla was so expensive. Agree for $120k there are so many other cars I’d rather have. Besides, I wouldn’t fit in it either. πŸ™‚

      2. Michael Kwan says:

        Thought it was closer to $100k, but yeah, I get that. The 4-door (at half the price) isn’t nearly as sexy though.

      3. Kevin Kimes says:

        Electric cars can be fantastic at acceleration due to how electric motors make torque. Another very interesting electric car I heard about a few years ago is called the Tango. It’s a 1-person-wide car with impressive performance. Commutercars.com, but they still aren’t in production.

        “With over 1,000 ft-lbs of torque starting at zero rpm and a 600 kW (805 hp) motor controller, the Tango accelerates from 0-60 mph in under four seconds, finishes the standing 1/4 mile in about 12 seconds at over 100 mph, and can reach over 130 mph with no gear shifting. ”

        And due to the battery weight at the bottom, it won’t tip over.

      4. No doubt! A nice CLS 63 or E 63 Mercedes with 520+ horsepower would be my choice.

        1. d3so says:

          Mine as well definitely more classy!

          1. PPC Ian says:

            I like those options better too, although I’d rather just get an SL 550 because I like having a convertible.

    2. @ Michael

      love your words …. Lotus with electric motor

  2. Who’s the pretty waitress?

    The touchy feely episode was awkward for me. The grilled squid looked awesome if you are adventurous.
    Your too big for that car you know, I think the touchy feely guy is following you.

    The Tesla Model S electric car is bad ass.

    1. John Chow says:

      She is one of our two waitress who serves us. Ya, I really like the Model S but I doubt I will get it with the jump seat option.

      1. Didn’t realize that you were 6’4″ either.

        1. I didn’t realize John was so tall either.

        1. Zik you don,t like man,s,dear hahaha..just jocking sweet heart..i like your comments..keep it up.

  3. The teriyaki chicken is pretty tasty looking.

    1. PPC Ian says:

      I could go for some teriyaki chicken right now!

      1. d3so says:

        How about the squid?

        1. PPC Ian says:

          I have never had squid before, but would definitely try it!

    2. Kevin Kimes says:

      Agreed. I haven’t been to a good teriyaki place in a long time, there’s looks great.

  4. PsychicJim says:

    Great Dot Com Pho photos! Makes me wish I was living in Canada instead of Australia!

    1. That is seatle …. Not Canada

  5. PPC Ian says:

    That was a bit scary when the touchy feely guy said he’d touch John’s leg!

    1. Can we get the touchy feely guy to write a guest post someday.

      1. Yes we would to read his post on SEO niche

        1. SEO isn’t a niche, what?

  6. Deepak yadav says:

    I too miss all these things here in india i think no one organize any event for bloggers in india. Wish here could be any.

    1. Why don’t you be the first one to start an event for bloggers in India? Be a pioneer.

      1. Deepak yadav says:

        But first i want build myself so that i can call myself a blogger first.

    2. Kevin Kimes says:

      Be the change.

    3. Michael Kwan says:

      Considering how many tech, blog, internet marketing, etc. folks are in India, there really ought to be *something*. Look around or, as the others have said, be the one to start one!

    4. Yes there are in Pune, Banglore, Delhi and few other cities as well …

  7. Brian P says:

    That is some good looking food!

  8. Andrew says:

    The car is good but rather expensive.

    1. fazal mayar says:

      yeah i think you could buy a better car at the same price very easily!

    2. May be because this is electric car ….

    3. It’s too expensive for the performance and size. I’m into fast luxury!

  9. fas says:

    I think the RR Phantom Electric would beat them all.

  10. Kent says:

    That car should be 60k MAX! That’s why I never really see it on the street. Haha

    1. Kevin Kimes says:

      The new one is under 60k πŸ™‚

  11. Hudson says:

    That food looks really good πŸ™‚

  12. Zach Crawley says:

    Haha John, I couldn’t fit in that car either .. I’m 6’5″ as well. πŸ™‚

  13. Ryan Eagle says:
