San Francisco’s Macadam Blames Apple

Friday, February 11th, 2005

Macadam was a certified Apple retailer in San Francisco. It was a pure Apple shop– nothing but Mac software and hardware, both Apple and third-party. They had some very cool vintage equipment set up and an impressive selection of Mac-compatible software. Their location south of Market was very convenient– if something on our Mac network [...]

Software Review: Podcast Tuner (alpha – version .01)

Thursday, February 10th, 2005

Podcast Tuner website. I haven’t been especially happy with iPodderX. It doesn’t handle subscriptions reliably. I’ve had Inside Mac Radio on my subscriptions for over a month with “download latest show” selected. Last night I clicked “check now” on iPodderX before I went to bed. It downloaded a month’s worth of previously-heard Inside Mac Radio [...]

Tonight on Charlie Rose: this phenomenon the kids call “blogging”

Thursday, February 10th, 2005

from Charlie baby’s website: should be a hoot. Sharing the program will be Teddy Kennedy, although I doubt he’ll be on the same panel. Ana’s Chappaquiddick jokes would most likely not go over too hot. “A DISCUSSION ABOUT BLOGS with GLENN REYNOLDS, University of Tennessee Editor, Instapundit.com ANA MARIE COX, Editor, Wonkette.com ANDREW SULLIVAN, Senior [...]

I’m standing in line at Rainbow Grocery. It’s busy. A colleague is standing in the express line. Afterwards, he fills me in on the backstory: The woman currently in front of me was in front of him in the express line before I walked up to the non-express line immediately adjacent. She had about 40 [...]

BAD words

Friday, February 4th, 2005

Thankfully hardly anyone uses the words “outside the box” anymore…except maybe when talking about where one of our cats, Seuss, prefers to pee. But there’s still some bad corporate-speak out there. Particularly ick-inducing are the following; these are modern cliches that should have been killed at birth: “Compelling vision” (gosh, using this when claiming a [...]

Memo to Adam Curry

Thursday, February 3rd, 2005

To: Adam From: Paul re: the Blue Man Group Dear Adam, The Blue Man Group is a negative indicator: talking about them in anything resembling a positive manner is a bad thing. The only people who are really thrilled by these guys are elderly yuppies who can’t bring themselves to shell out for Wayne Newton [...]
