Look What I Got My Sweetie for Valentine’s: A $100 Car Remote Jammer – Now She Can Break Into Cars Easily!

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

The KTVU is all over This New Issue of Concern:

SPECIAL REPORT: Hackers* Turn Car Thieves With Keyless Locks

So, what a $100 handheld 315 Mhz Wireless Remote Key / Security Jammer / Code Scanner can do for you, at the very least, is allow you to prevent some loser’s car from locking up for the night, dig? Then, after watching the pigeon walk away, you can simply open the car doors and trunk and then collect all the sweet sweet booty inside.

Jamming seems a lot simpler than code scanning, non?

Anyway, this is what KTVU is ascared of showing you. From China With Love:

My funny Valentine is delighted – she’s gotten two Kate Spades and $5000 worth of travelers’ checks so far since Feb 14th. Really, it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

Hurray!

But please remember, “this product is a supplementary tool to unlock, and can only be taken as friends locksmith studies.” So, don’t actually steal anything using this device that’s made exclusively for stealing things.

*Wouldn’t really call somebody who uses a simple jamming device a “hacker,” but that’s just me.

Get Your Posters, Get Your MLB-Approved Official Posters of World Series 2010 – Relive the Giants Victory

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

AllPosters would like you to load up on posters of World Series 2010.

Here are the two shots I have from them. I would assume that these show Game 2 and Game 5, respectfully, but I couldn’t find the first one in the Game 2 section so I gave up.

But anyway, the thumbnail shots they have are a library in themselves.

The colors here are a little saturated for my tastes, but this certainly is a memorable scene:

Go Giants!

Giants Fever Sweeps Over Civic Center – A Huge Crowd Already This Morning – All the Good Vantage Points are Gone

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

Well it’s still early but there’s already pandemonium on the streets of San Francisco over the Giants winning the World Series 4-1.

As you can see, spectators are already lined up, camped out. The parade and celebration will soon begin.

And Placido Domingo, the greatest opera singer in modern times, is in the house.

Our SFMOMA has an idea about the ideal viewing spot, but I don’t think anyone will be allowed up there but police snipers, prob:

“Clark” and “Lincecum” just came by BART:

If you have to watch over the office while your colleagues join the madding crowd, feel free to take in the action on UStream.

In the meantime, just crank up the Giants-themed smooth reggae from Michael Franti and Spearhead.

Congratulations, GIANTS!

¡Enhorabuena, GIGANTES!

And here’s what the last Giants ticker tape parade looked like back in 1958:

That was then, this is now, on Haight Street near Ashbury. The cops just shut down the street:

Les mise-en-scene:

Some buses on Haight Street got rerouted, others just got stuck:

And some people had their own bus, like these fans on Sutter. Complete with light sabers, of course:

So things were pretty mellow around most of the town.

But the Mission was a different story:

MAYOR NEWSOM ANNOUNCES PARADE AND CIVIC CELEBRATION FOR THE WORLD CHAMPION SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS
City to Honor Returning World Series Champions with Ticker-tape Parade Wednesday at 11 a.m. from Financial District to Civic Center Plaza

San Francisco, CA–Mayor Gavin Newsom announced tonight that San Francisco will host a ticker-tape parade and civic celebration in honor of the 2010 World Champion San Francisco Giants on Wednesday, November 3, 2010. The parade will begin on Montgomery Street at Washington Street at 11 a.m. and go southbound on Montgomery Street to Market Street, before continuing westbound on Market Street to Civic Center Plaza. Following the parade, on the steps of City Hall, Mayor Newsom will present the team with the key to the City and honor the World Series Champions in a civic celebration. The parade route will replicate the route taken by the team when they first came to San Francisco from New York in 1958.

“San Francisco could not be prouder of its hometown San Francisco Giants tonight,” said Mayor Newsom. “Congratulations to every player on the roster and to the entire San Francisco Giants organization. You have earned this historic World Championship through your talent, determination and teamwork, defying the odds and bringing the entire City together throughout this remarkable season. San Francisco eagerly awaits your return, and we cannot wait to celebrate your triumph in Texas with a ticker tape parade and civic celebration to welcome you home.”

The sidewalks lining Wednesday’s ticker-tape parade down Montgomery and up Market Street and the celebration at Civic Center Plaza are open to all members of the public. Those viewing the parade and who wish to attend the celebration in Civic Center Plaza are advised to arrive early and take public transportation.

The Ferrari Store in Union Square Could Use a Little More Foot Traffic

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

The Ferrari Store at 2 Stockton could do with a little more foot traffic these days, as predicted. Of course you can’t buy a real Ferrari there, but you CAN get a bunch of stuff you don’t need. Then you’ll end up looking like this guy. Why not?

Cue tumbleweeds. Click to expand:

Speaking of real Ferraris, check out the 2003 F1 replica racer in 2007 livery. Note the tiny 13″ wheels that are smaller than the ones on your sister’s Corolla. Note mobbed Apple Store just across the street at 1 Stockton. 

I’m not sure what the real color is on this Enzo key, so I can’t fix it. Could be a case of white balance gone wrong. Note ridiculousness of spending 200 clams for the key to a car you don’t own.

Ask them about their Segway

Good luck San Francisco Scuderia Ferrari.
