Over the past few months there have been a number of protesters spotted at various local Apple store locations, but I have to give it up to these guys (MTD Drywall, from Gilroy, I believe). Not only did they go to the effort of building out a full-on disgruntled union-protest iPhone costume (with near-accurately placed [...]
Remember where FSJ said he kind of threw a fit when Veronica walked in the room? He wasn’t kidding. Definitely a moment, glad someone got that on tape.
So last night Veronica, Niall and I went to the Fake Steve Jobs reading at Books, Inc. in the Castro. We show up, and, well, FSJ describes it best: “I recognized Veronica right away. I had to stop — for a moment I could not speak. If it weren’t for the nitroglycerin tablets that I [...]
People have been pinging me all morning about the Bay Bridge roadway collapse in Oakland, which blew up after a gas tanker exploded just before 4AM this morning. Being that the driver is safe and the only thing the Bay has to fear at this point is even more severely snarled traffic jams, I’d like [...]

It’s this unspoken assumption, I suppose, since Bush’s “troop augmentation” strategy as outlined in our last State of the Union. That assumption being, of course, that as we continue wallowing in the totally amoral quagmire that is Iraq (and as [...]
I think today might have been my single most favorite day of my entire professional career. Breaking FairUse4WM is a close second though. More later today when I land.
Not surprising at all, but Niall and Om managed to sell out their Widgets Live! conference, at which I’ll be moderating the hardware panel featuring Michael Maia (PortalPlayer) and Steve Tomlin (Chumby). Should be lots of fun, hope to see you there!
Well, it’s all over — a month of planning, finagling, sacrificing small animals to my MacBook Pro, and begging our techs to please, please not let us go down this time. We stayed up for the first Jobsnote ever (I’m definining “up” as available 100% of the time with absolutely no lag, delay, or indication [...]
