Am I missing something?

Does this look like a cell phone to you?

Zoomed in:

It doesn’t to me.

Man, the Falun Gong Protest in Front of the Chinese Consulate on Geary Will Freak You Out

Friday, July 6th, 2012

I don’t know, which would you rather see when you look outside in the morning? Would you rather see freaky Blair Witch evidence or bunch of Falun Gong holding this pose?

Geary at Laguna:

I could go either way.

But, attention cultists, achtung baby: Signals intelligence officers are inside this consulate, sniffing your cell phone data packets, so to speak. Like a giant Google Maps car.

So, Falun Gongers, take your cell phone batteries out of your mobiles, if you know what’s good for you, whenever you protest over there.

Just saying…

Making Money Off of Donated Food: Wow, the Illegal Black Market of Mid-Market is Larger Than Ever

This (about 20 sellers all in a row) is the most I’ve seen all in one place at one time.

The SFPD knows all about this – sometimes they care, but most of the time they don’t.

And best of all, after you purchase a bunch of food, you can go across the street to buy a stolen iPhone.

Remember, “Mayor Ed Lee Get’s It Done!”

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

I don’t know, but here it is:

My dad had this kind of deal to take notes when he flew airplanes, in the pre-smartphone era:

All the deets:

“SAN FRANCISCO CLOTHING COMPANY REINVENTS  THE ORIGINAL BLUE JEAN FOR YOUR SMARTPHONE: DELTA415                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

 It’s Time to Change Your Pants: Alphyn Industries Launches the Delta415 Premium Jeans

(June – 2012) – Tech-fashion brand, Alphyn Industries has launched a new line of premium denim, which will revolutionize the way consumers interact with their smartphones. The Delta415 Premium Jeans are made of advanced materials designed to improve 21st century urban lifestyle. The stylishly intuitive smart jean is the latest product in the WEARCOM™ line. The WEARCOM™ technology gives the wearer the ability to use a smart device within the garment without physically holding it. 

The patented Wearcom™ pocket (3 x 5 inch / 7.6 x 12.7cm) is made of durable polymer film to allow for complete interactivity with any touch screen device.  A buttonhole above the genuine leather film edge opens into the front pocket for threading headphones/mic wire into right pant pocket. The zippered pocket cover provides a discrete look, secure and easy retrieval, and full usability of the smartphone while sitting down.

The Jeans are handmade in San Francisco, California, the heartland of Silicon Valley and the birthplace of blue jeans. They are made from 100% cotton denim and organic cotton pockets.  The dedicated device pocket gives the wearer’s smartphone the safe functional home it deserves as the wearer navigates the urban stratosphere and makes things happen.

“We test and use the best materials because we know it is what our customers expect” said, Ben Raviv, CEO of Alphyn. Alphyn draws on the tradition of bringing military technologies to the public and redefining civilian culture.

Inspired by the fighter pilots’ G-suit, which has custom straps and pockets for a map clipboard and notes attached to their thigh during flight, Alphyn developed unique pocket configurations, which hold smart devices, and allows the wearer to interact with their device without the need to hold it.  The goals are to make living safer, and to make everyday clothing stylish, protective, functional and user friendly, and merging advanced mobile gear with everyday clothing to accommodate our communication culture. 

 Industries is located in San Francisco, the birthplace of blue jeans and the silicone chip. Alphyn manufactures its clothes locally, reflecting the Bay Area’s culture of backyard Silicone Valley tech giants like Apple, Google, Zynga and eBay, combined with the rich fashion tradition of LEVIS, Dockers, GAP, and The North Face, who have reshaped classic American fashion. 

Testing the best materials available, from space age silver coated, nylon cotton knits to denim woven on vintage looms; Alphyn uses the most advanced materials to produce its products.

OMG OMG, the New Samsung Galaxy S III Phone is Here, Almost – Release Date is June 21 on the T-Mobile

Monday, June 4th, 2012

The highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III is a coming on June 21, 2012, at (achtung, baby!) T-Mobile, (aka Deutsche Telekom AG) anyway – that’s the news.

Oh, it turns out that that big AT&T / T Mobile merger isn’t going to happen, so TMO soldiers on as America’s #4 (and Germany’s #1) cell phone carrier, not that that really affects me. What affects me is that the T-Mobile doesn’t work so hot in the Lower Haight / Between the Haights (BTH) areas, I’ve noticed, lately, for whatever reason. Otherwise TMO is AOK.

This new device is wide. My man-hands will be able to handle it (in about a half-year or so when my re-up time comes), but what about your hands? I don’t know.

Deets from this AM’s release are below.

“T-Mobile to Debut the Samsung Galaxy S III on June 21 - Latest in Galaxy S series brings fast group sharing and on-the-go entertainment all running on America’s Largest 4G Network

BELLEVUE, Wash. — June 4, 2012 — T-Mobile USA, Inc., the No. 1 mobile operator brand in Samsung Galaxy S sales, and Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile), the No. 1 mobile phone provider in the U.S. and the No. 1 smartphone provider worldwide,1 announced the upcoming release of the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S® III. Starting June 21, T-Mobile customers will have the opportunity to own one of the most innovative smartphones in the market to date, joining the popular Galaxy S family of devices.

The Samsung Galaxy S III is one of T-Mobile’s fastest 4G (HSPA+ 42 technology) smartphones. With an intuitive design, the Galaxy S III enables customers to share photos, videos and more effortlessly to a compatible TV or other Galaxy S III devices. Featuring a beautiful 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED™ screen, the Galaxy S III packs a powerful entertainment experience allowing customers to watch HD movies and TV shows, download apps and securely browse the Web at lightning-fast speeds on America’s Largest 4G Network®.

“We have a tremendous history of working with Samsung to bring cutting-edge devices to market, and we know our customers are excited to get their hands on the Galaxy S III,” said Brad Duea, senior vice president, product management, T-Mobile USA. “As we continue to aggressively compete, this device is yet another example of how T-Mobile delivers amazing devices and 4G experiences to our customers.”

On they go, after the jump.

Do You Know These Three Girls Who Hang Out on Polk Street? One of them Stole a Cell Phone and Wallet at a Subway Sandwich

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Here’s the sad story from the dude what lost his stuff at the Subway Sandwiches on Polk and Sutter:

“(3/25/2012) I was in the Subway sandwiches place at 1199 Sutter at Polk and then walked outside to get a taxi for some people I was with. I had accidentally left my phone and wallet on the table. When I returned about 30 seconds later my stuff was gone. Here is the surveillance video of who took it. Please message me or email me at racejohnson@gmail.com if you recognize her.”

Now, I say girls, I mean, I can’t tell how old they are, something betwixt 14 and 24. They act like high school students AFAIAC.
