An open letter to Steve Jobs on his choice of Apple Store locations

When the nice lady pointed at Apple Juice, I knew my little grasp of the Italian language wasn’t going to cut it. We’d have to figure it out ourselves, with nothing more than the memory of what the map looked like from your website. It didn’t look too far from what I remember, and we grabbed a couple quick espressos and a bottle of water. Walking out of the store past the five old Italians gambling on a game of poker, I felt confident we’d find the plug and be back downtown Rome in no time. Out on the road we came to a junction with a choice to go either left or right. Left led us into an area with signs of civilization and right led us to the entrance of a busy highway with no sidewalk. So, using our common sense we headed towards civilization with a spring in our step.

Dolf Lundgren to the rescue!

Just then from far across the street, we hear some random yelling. Knowing this was England and they get a bit out of control, I figured it was just some guy blowing off some steam. But the yelling didn’t stop, and in the shadows from across the street a figure of craziness and destruction appeared. This guy was kicking garbage cans, body checking bus stops and being loser drunk. As he swayed and swerved up to the very same crosswalk we were about to cross, my eyes met Steve and we knew there was going to be trouble.

Is Canadian cellular really that expensive?

One thing I always heard while working for Rogers wireless is how expensive Canadian cell phone pricing is. The media is continually stating this in the papers which gets people going and complaining. I wonder if they actually ever check their facts? While in Dublin I saw this ad and have to say main stream […]

Flash Mobs


Flash mob videos are one of three vices that suck me into the vortex of the you tube “related videos” link hop. The other two are funny videos of cats or kids. A friend will share a video on facebook and the next thing I know an hour has passed by! Cats are probably the […]
