Well, I guess you’ve got to spend money to make money…
(In Soviet Russia, monitors carry you!)
Here’s what you do, you take the Apple logo, complete with a bite out of the right side and then you combine it with, IDK, how about Mickey Mouse, and then you call your electronics store on Grant near Broadway Applesomething and BABY YOU’RE IN BUSINESS!
Let’s take a peek inside:
It’s sparse, baby:
(I don’t really have an iPhone. I don’t think I ever will. But if you want to make Yet Another Trip To The “Genius” “Bar,” it’s located the next street over, on Stockton.)
Here’s the pitch..
…and here’s the story, from a couple years back.
You cannot monetize public assets for individual company gain. Just because an app can be built, doesn’t mean it should be.
I’m a Co-Founder and CEO of a San Francisco based startup called CARMAnation (www.carmanation.com). We look to help solve parking issues via the true intentions of the sharing economy – working with the community to benefit the community. Our users share their PRIVATE available parking spots with one another.
Having tech startups trying to solve the parking problems with their own unique approach means there is a need to disrupt the industry. Technology is a wonderful thing, it can solve/simplify a lot of problems, but it has to be done right, otherwise “Monkey Parking” is what happens.”
I wonder how they’re doing.
An accident at 4th and Market during the evening drive means that buses will back up Market Street both ways. This was in the the Financial last night:
This was the scene. I didn’t see what happened.
An SFPD motor patrol officer said the bike rider had a broken back and a possible broken pelvis. He said that words might have been exchanged between the bike rider and somebody in the red Hyundai before the collision.
Last I heard, the bike rider was responsive and stable.
“Apple is widely expected to reveal the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus at an event on September the 9th.”
“Who pays for the costs to staff the SFPD officers and for the SFPD vehicles that are used at this venue? The private company organizing the event, or San Francisco taxpayers?”
Well, I’ll field this one. Apple will throw us a few bucks.
Anyway, I’ve never been wrong on a TRUMOR yet. We’ll see…
The Gist is that quite attractive hackr gurl Sandra Bullock is such is such a social loser that nobody in the world knows who she is, except for her mom with Alzheimer’s and former beau Dennis Leary(!)
But let’s take a stroll down Memory Lane:
“Bennett finally tracks down the net conspiracy to San Francisco, where the HQ of the ‘Cathedral’ corporation is 1 Post Street at Market Street. The climactic ‘Pan-Pacific Computer Convention’ used a real Apple convention at the Moscone Center, Howard Street between Third and Fourth Streets in San Francisco.”
And now, some screen shots.
So single female loser drives a big BMW sedan? I don’t think so, Hollywood, but thanks for heavily featuring the BMW “roundel” propeller logo in every scene that you possibly could. (Was is it her dead boyfriend’s ride? IDK.) And let’s all laugh at the huge “car phones” of the day, but they actually worked better as phones than our “devices” of 2015. And oh yeah, the fuzz is on her back door in this very scene – these days you can get a moving violation ticket for this “primary offense” and KRON TV’s Stanley Roberts would be videoing her for a segment of People Behaving Badly:
Hey, it’s DR!
Hey, it’s EC!
(Those are news readers I recognize, ’cause I’m old. IDK who reads the news these days.)
Oh look, McKesson Plaza! AKA One Post Street. Sadly, the gold letters were covered up by the Hollywood Freaks. Note the crimson red banners for an upcoming AIDS vigil. I’ll tell you, real candlelight vigils can be arresting, a river of light coming at you and stretching out for a half-mile. The one in this movie looked like just another parade.
And here’s your MacWorld 1995:
And there you have it.
Well here you go, it’s BLOCK THE TECH COMMUNTE via IndyBay.
But read on to see the reply from the Teamsters.
On It Goes…
AN OPEN LETTER TO “BLOCK THE TECH COMMUTE”
We are shuttle bus drivers for bus companies who have contracts with Facebook, Apple, Google, eBay, and more. We are mostly people of color. We live in communities such as East and West Oakland and Bayview/Hunter Point. We share your concerns about gentrification. The Bay Area’s skyrocketing rents and housing prices have pushed many of us out to Antioch, Pittsburg, Tracy, Manteca, and even farther.
Your efforts are hurting us, not helping. We are on the front lines of fighting income inequality in the high tech industry by organizing with the Teamsters union. In the last few months, over 225 of us at two shuttle bus companies won union elections. Those of us who drive for Facebook just won a union contract that includes $9/hour average wage increases, fully paid company health care, 5 weeks paid vacation, sick days, a pension, and higher pay for those of us who work split shifts.
In March, you attacked a Loop Transportation/Facebook bus that one of us was driving at MacArthur BART. You attacked a union bus driver for a good employer who pays good wages and benefits. That did not help our cause – it hurt it.
We call on you to join our efforts to hold high tech accountable to workers. If you want to make the economy work for struggling Bay Area families, then help the other drivers organize a union with us. Help push for affordable housing. But please don’t stop our buses.
May Day is for workers. Respect the shuttle bus workers this May Day.
