On a midday bus ride in San Francisco, a man in the back was holding forth on drugs, smoking, rehab, and the like, eventually comparing notes with a woman about all the drugs they used to do.
A woman in the middle of the bus remarked, “I feel like I’m in my own reality show.”
Another man responded, “Yeah, it’s called San Francisco.”

That’s funny. Kinda makes me interested, again, in visiting San Francisco.
Unrelated, but… I’m surprised that I haven’t seen anything here about the iPad.
Sick of it, already? Uninterested?
Mostly I don’t have much to say about the iPad. I mean, I like the idea of a tablet computer, but I can’t get worked up over something that, at least in the first version, is basically a giant iPod Touch, which is basically an iPhone without the phone.
The dealbreaker for me is that (last I looked, anyway) Apple is insisting on the iPhone App Store model where they get to act as a gatekeeper and choose what software can be installed on the device. Android has two things going for it: the market is more open, and you can install third-party software that isn’t available through the market if you really want to.
