Observing the species

There's an AT&T store at the corner of the building I work at. This morning, when I got off the train at 6 AM, there were a dozen people standing around on the corner. Well, this is not all that unusual in San Francisco, but I thought they were too uncoordinated for a tour group and too well dressed to be homeless.

When Jerry and I went out for our 9 AM refreshment, there were about fifty people outside the store. Jerry observed that they were waiting to buy a G3 iPhone, and he had heard the people in the store announce that they only had 100 phones. Ten minutes later, the line had doubled. I shudder to think what the block around the downtown Apple store must have looked like.

I guess I'm a technoslack. It would be nice to have one, but going through all the crap just to say you got one on the first day just doesn't seem worthwhile to me. Of course, I'm typing this on the little old iMac that used to belong to my Mom.

Dunsmuir weekend. If I find out that the guild let Richard harass my wife again, I am going to be very angry with them. I know I wouldn't be able to persuade her to leave, but I will certainly make sure any unhappiness on her part will be widely shared.

The plastic surgeon is pleased with the lip's healing at this point, and doesn't need to see it again until the one-year anniversary. One bright point, heading into the weekend.

Let the weekend begin.

I once took one of those online quizzes to see how addicted to Apple I was.

The results?

I am 6% addicted to Apple.
(I like the Mac ads, and that's about it)

So it comes as no surprise to me that all the hype about all the "innovative" new Apple products haven't affected me in any way.

Personally, I'd much rather have an EeePC and a cellphone I can plug it into...

Hey, and congrats on your lip healing, that's good news?
(and have you tried spraying it with colloidal silver to help it heal faster?)

I'm not a 'gotta-have-it' techno. I'm thinking of getting an iPod touch, but that's mainly because my Palm Tungsten is pissing me off. That said, I like Apple products because they work with a lot less grief than most PC gear. The point for me is being able to get work done with a tool, not just having the spiffy shiny tool itself. I have my grandfather's handsaws that he used on Hoover Dam, and they cut wood just fine, thanks.
