You may have heard me refer to myself as "the world's luckiest guy", tongue-in-cheek, but this you will not believe. I'm checking in for my flight to Europe, and they ask for my passport# and expiration date. And I notice my passport expires on 4/11/2010, *one day* after I get back. How headless is that?
iPad review units have shipped, the embargo has been lifted, and the industry pundits are having a field day reviewing their spiffy new toys. Among them Walt Mossberg (WSJ), David Pogue (NY Times), and Andy Ihnatko (Chicago Sun). They all seem rather blown away. Walt Mossberg: “After spending hours and hours with it, I believe this beautiful new touch-screen device from Apple has the potential to change portable computing profoundly, and to challenge the primacy of the laptop.” Yippee what a time to be alive :)

in ∑ (100% pure naval gazing) You may have noticed that I have two kinds of posts, those about one subject, like March Fool and Bam, and those with a compendium of smaller subjects, like this one, with internal permalinks for each item. I'm going to start designating compendia with a ∑ summation character in the title. Probably not even worthy of mention, but there you go.
And I'm off... next post should be from Ghent in Flanders...
