Another Packed Apple Store

No sales, almost nothing new for the season, still the most crowded spot in Fair Oaks other than Starbucks. And yes, people are buying.

Organic green cuisine at Great Sage

All vegan, even the "crabcake", "egg nog" latte, and cinnamon bun. Great brunch!

Streaming Straight No Chaser @SNCmusic concert at work via Remote Potato @fatattitude

Recorded concert on PBS last night using Windows 7 Media Center. Playing it back today on my iPhone via Remote Potato. Billy Jean/Poison is the greatest mash-up ever. Must remember to do this for more concerts.

Investing $55M in Carrier IQ seemed like a good idea at the time.

What happens if you tell Siri you want to protest an abortion clinic? Results still "pro-life"?
