Fuck you, Steve

We went down to the Phoenix Apple Store today to get my lovely bride an iPhone. Or technically, to get me a new 3G iPhone, and give her my old one.

This turned out to be one of the worst retail experiences I've had in a while.

Giving You the Stink Eye, Take Two

As I noted before, I'd attempted to thwart thievery in our break rooms at work with a little psy-ops warfare, namely posting closeup pictures of a mean looking eye above the creamer and sweet-n-low, which some lowlife scum has been swiping.

Well, that didn't work. Instead, the lowlife scum stole the posters. Or, possibly it may have been the cleaning crew. I don't know.

This brings me to part two - what else can The Eye achieve?

I'm in ur breakroomz watchin ur creemerz

Supposedly, people are less likely to steal when they're feeling watched. Even if they're being watched by eyes printed on a piece of paper. I have no substantiation of this, as even with my mastery of the Google search, I couldn't find the article I'd read.

Nevertheless, being the intrepid experimentalist, I moved forward with my own 'all seeing eye' study, watching for the perpetrators of the massive theft of Sweet-n-Low, sugar and non-dairy creamer from our breakroom.

We shall see if this has any effect, and I will report my findings to you, my esteemed readers.

Reasonably impressed with new iPhone firmware ... MacBook Air ... not so much

While the Mac whore zealot was clearly awestruck by Apple's new MacBook Air, what with its svelte profile and light weight, not to mention complete lack of upgradability, less power and higher price than standard MacBooks... I was more interested in the latest iPhone firmware update that was also announced at yesterday's MacWorld Expo Stevenote.

Oh yeah, baby!

That's right, my shiny new iPhone is on its way from mainland China. In a mere weekend it'll be in my grubby little hands, and I'll be cursing it for it's BellSouth Cingular AT&T service.
