As seen on Battery, which is basically an on-ramp for the I-80:
That’s right, our First Amendment prevents local regulation, pretty much.
So there’s nothing to stop the crush of these orange Boost ads from circling and circling during rush hour.
We would circle and we’d circle and we’d circle to stop and consider and centered on the pavement stacked up all the trucks jacked up and our wheels in slush and orange crush in pocket and all this here county, hell, any county, it’s just like heaven here, and I was remembering and I was just in a different county and all then this whirlybird that I headed for I had my goggles pulled off; I knew it all, I knew every back road and every truck stop…
It looks like this:
All the deets! From our SFMTA! (You know, they really like EXCLAMATION POINTS over there, wow!)
“The SFMTA is excited to introduce MuniMobile: the mobile ticketing app for smartphones coming soon!
MuniMobile enables customers to purchase and use transit fares across the Muni system: bus, rail, cable car and Paratransit.
Buy Muni tickets and passes in advance or on-the-go! With MuniMobile, your phone is your fare. There’s no longer need to carry exact change or rely on fare vending machines to ride.
The app will include the following features:
Ability to purchase, store and use single or multiple Muni fares on one mobile device
Allow passengers to pay for single-ride fares, cable car rides, and one-day, three-day and seven-day passports
Industry-leading security to protect personal information and payments
Responsive eCommerce website for online ticket purchases
Beta testing update: we’re received over 1,600 applicants for the Beta phase of MuniMobile – wow!
Thank you for the tremendous support!
For those who did not sign up in time or were not selected to participate in this phase, don’t worry. The public launch is right around the corner next month.”
The thrown shoe on this ride was manifest, but if that’s been the only thing wrong with it the past week then hauling it off with this mobile crane seems a bit much…
In mitigation, they could have used an even more expensive medivac chopper to airlift it out of there…
If the mountain won’t come to Muhammad…
Oh, it will? Never mind.
As seen in Civic Center last week:
Now the font on the side isn’t comic sans, but it seems a little bit comical to me:
Didn’t realize we had one of these. Perhaps we received a little Homeland Security money to pay for it, IDK.
I’m sure everybody was impressed at its debutante ball / first “MCU rally” in Sacramento a couple years back.

SAN FRANCISCO, June 5, 2014 — The Tizen Developer Conference (#TDCSF14), the world’s largest event focused exclusively on the growing developer ecosystem around the Tizen open source operating system for converged devices, today marked the closing of the third-annual TDC event in San Francisco. The event saw a record number of developers and media attendees witness the official unveiling of the world’s first Tizen smartphone, the Samsung Z, set to launch in Q3 of 2014 in Russia. A number of other new device prototypes, software, device profiles and developer tools were also on display at the event.
Here it is, down at the Hilton in Union Square:
Look it’s the new Android-free Samsung Z
Coming to a car near you – a Land Rover in this case:
And Intel is on the scene, pushing its very inexpensive NUCs, the so-called Next Unit of Computing:
Do I know what’s going to happen with Tizen or the other newer OSes?
No, not at all.
Anyway, the big show ends today – see you there (again)!
