Clever iPhone Map Icon

Unless you’ve been to Cupertino, you wouldn’t likely recognize this map location:


That’s I-280 at the top. Take the road going south then your first left. Guess where you are? The street name is Infinite Loop if you need a hint.

It’s Apple’s corporate offices. Clever, eh?

Blinky is dead and I killed him

Rule Number One: Fish don’t like distilled water.

I bought some distilled water yesterday, thinking it was the right thing to use when replacing and refilling the water in Blinky’s tank.

I was very wrong.

I watched him struggle yesterday and not eat food. I worried when (even before the water change) that he was listless. After the water change, I ignored him as I piled through work.

It’s the first pet I’ve ever had on my own. I had a dog when I was very young (like 3 or 4) and it was taken away after it bit me. At least I think that’s what happened. Now after only a few weeks, this fish is dead. Do I get a new one? Should I get a bigger tank?


iPhone Hopes and Dreams

~stevenf: “I wear as a sort of geek badge of pride the fact that I’ve never camped overnight to purchase any tech product. Sure, I’ve been one of the first ones in the store after it opened, and OK, I pre-ordered a Wii and picked it up at midnight, but I’ve never CAMPED OUT in front of a store just to hand over my money like a great big loser.

Well, the iPhone launch is the first time I’ve ever actually seriously considered it.”
