Apple sued over iPhone price cut

This moron needs to get a freaking life. You paid an early adopter fee. It happens with everything. So the price came down earlier than you expected. You didn’t get your 8 gb model you wanted, but you were too impatient to wait so you bought the 4 gb model.

AppleInsider | Apple, Jobs, AT&T sued over iPhone price cut, rebates

If you really want a reason to sue Apple and AT&T, why not sue them for having a horrible network and not being able to support the phone

I think Apple was fair in giving customers price protection in the past two weeks and giving a $100 store credit to previous  purchasers. That’s more than most other companies would do – especially in the mobile phone market!

Rexburg Temple Open House Scheduled

It’s a good thing I don’t actually work at work…

The nearly completed temple in Rexburg, Idaho–the 125th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints–will be open to the public beginning December 29, 2007, and continuing through January 26, 2008.

Who’s coming with me? Let’s find a date that works and make a trip of it.

Los Angeles To Get Its Very Own Production Of WICKED!

The producers of WICKED have just announced that Los Angeles will be getting its very own production of the smash hit musical that the New York Times just called, “one of the most successful shows in Broadway history.” WICKED, which was developed, written and had its earliest readings and workshops in Los Angeles, will begin performances at the Pantages Theatre beginning February 9, 2007. Tickets are currently only available to subscribers of Broadway/L.A. by calling 866-755-2929 or, for groups of fifteen (15) or more, by calling 866-755-3075 (or visit www.broadwayla.org). Single tickets will be going on sale this fall.

I think I may have to join Broadway/L.A.!

Stuck in an Elevator

If I had to be stuck in an elevator, I can think of no better place to be than at the Apple Store New York, like the kids that got stuck in there last week!

Imagine, you’re surrounded by glass, so it’s not like you can’t see out, so you don’t have to worry about being claustrophobic. Even better, you’re at an Apple store!

Check out the story from some people who have been in this situation (or the Apple Insider article).

Fuddruckers Oceanside

It’s official.

Fuddruckers in Oceanside opens in less than one day! According to the NCTimes, the doors are scheduled to open at 11 o’clock on Monday morning.

I think Batch and I will be there. Will you?

P.S. I thought it was pretty sweet that my blog is the second link when you search for fuddruckers oceanside on google.

World’s Greatest Hamburger, Now in Oceanside

Well Kids,

It looks like next month I won’t have to drive to Buena Park for the world’s greatest hamburger anymore. A Fuddruckers is opening in Oceanside next month. According to the picture Lindsay was kind enough to send my way, they are currently hiring.

It’s on the corner of Vista Way and El Camino Real. Forget going to CSU Fullerton, I’m switching to Mira Costa!

Who makes the world’s greatest hamburger? You do! (Eat at Fuddruckers!)

RFID Implants

So imagine someday you’re applying for a job. You’ve had the interview and it went well. You get a call telling you that they want you to start work and they want to know when they can schedule you to go in for your RFID Implant!

Apparently a company is testing out RFID implants in humans to control access to a datacenter. Supposedly it is not a condition of employment, but it certainly seems to me like it would be required if you want to gain access to the datacenter.

Apple Introduces 1GB iPod Nano

Apple released today a 1 gigabyte version of the iPod Nano. Priced at $149 retail, I think this could be Apple’s iPod Shuffle replacement.

They did a price drop on the shuffle making the 1 GB one $99 Retail and the 512 MB one $69! Now everyone can seriously afford an iPod – and have their choice!

I’m still waiting for a bigger iPod, not that I actually even have the use for it really though… Maybe I need a Nano so I can be like everyone else and listen to music 24/7…

What I’m really waiting for though: The 17″ MacBook Pro!

We’re Not in Kansas, but We Do Get Twisters

I was going to invite you to read this article from the LA Times, March 10, 2005, but they want to charge you to read it!

It talked about some of the times that LA has had weird weather in the past, as opposed to our normal summer in January stuff.

There was a snowball fight in 1932 outside Pasadena City College where the students were throwing rock filled snowballs across Colorado Blvd. When the police showed, several students deflated the tired and took the keys to the squad cars. The dean of the collge got out a bullhorn and said, “Please remember, you are Pasadena gentlemen.” At the same time Chatsworth was buried under 5 inches of snow and Albert Einsten wasn’t vising CalTech and commented that the had enough of the white stuff back home in Germany “and came here for sunshine.”

There was also snow in 1949. In Altadena, Christmas Tree Lane became a minature ski run.

The article also mentioned two tornados. One was in 1983 which took part of the convention center with it when it ran along the Harbor Freeway. Another hit Hawthorne in March of 1930.
