Hi all! Today was iPhone 3G day; unless you were hidden under a rock somewhere, you were probably inundated with iPhone news. I had a reasonably productive day although as usual on Mondays, my todo list is longer now than it was this morning. I have this ongoing tension between "real work" (coding, documenting, etc) and "scorekeeping" (mostly emailing back and forth :).
Want to see eight months compressed into eight minutes? Jason Kottke has a video of the entire Democratic primary. In case you were, you know, on a space flight to Jupiter or something.
So Alejandro Valverde won stage 1 of the Dauphiné Libéré. Leaving Thor Hushovd in yellow, by one second, with Levi Leipheimer in third by five. This is going to be a great race. Watch for George Hincapie too, he's close.
Congratulations to Ken Griffey for hitting his 600th home run. I can remember when he was considered the best bet to break Hank Aaron's lifetime homer mark. That probably won't happen - Griffey had too many injuries, and is now too old - but he's still one of my favorite ballplayers. Likeable, you know? Unlike, well, some others we won't mention...
So, to the iPhone 3G: Wow. Here's the WWDC keynote if you haven't yet watched it; as always, the Stevenotes are amazing for their form as well as their content. This one actually featured quite a bit less of Steve himself, but was still really well done. The demos of various apps (both Apple and third-party) on the iPhone were amazing; just a year ago (right before the iPhone was introduced) such applications on a handheld would have been considered impossible.
In other computing news, IBM's RoadRunner computer breaks the petaflop barrier. Very cool. A tad larger than either a Centro or an iPhone, however...
