Oh, Costco is Selling Apple Stuff Again: iPods and iPads with a Modest Discount of $15 Or So

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

One supposes the great Apple Costco Spat of Aught-Ten is over, seeing as you can walk right in to Costco #144 and score an iPod Touch or Nano or, soon enough, an iPad Air or Mini or whatnot.

Apparently Canadian Costcos are getting iPhones now but supplies will be spotty in the U.S. depending on region and carrier.

(The last time I bought an iPod at a Costco it was co-branded with HP, believe it or not.)

Or if you really want to save money, there’s always the Apple Refurbished Store.

Anyway, enjoy.

This Video Shows How the SFPD Runs Its Broadway Tunnel Speed Trap – Beware Drivers of Audis, MINIs and Priuseseses

Monday, February 27th, 2012

In the space of about ten minutes one quiet morning, two or three SFPD motorcycle cops handed out citations to the drivers of three Audis, a MINI and a Toyota Prius hybrid in the area of the western terminus of the Broadway Tunnel.

Audis and MINIs generally go too fast, of course – I didn’t see exactly what the Prius driver did wrong.

Anyway, here’s one of the Audis, a TT, coming out of North Beach way too fast. My buddy Nelson thought this was real funny:

Audi drivers, you may have good reflexes ‘n stuff but you’re right down there with the Prius drivers.

Anyway, it’s unusual to see the SFPD care about speeding, IMO.
