This Rolling Billboard-on-Wheels Truck is Unstoppable – SFGov is Powerless to Regulate – Guess Which Amendment Protects ThemFriday, March 25th, 2016
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…
OMG, the New SFMTA “MUNIMobile” Fare App is Here! – Beta Testing Now, Release in November! – Deets from Famous Akit!Wednesday, October 28th, 2015
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.
Sauce for the Goose: Here It Is, Your Gigantic San Francisco Sheriff Mobile Command Unit – Biggest Ice Cream Truck EverThursday, April 2nd, 2015
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.
Next up, Know Your SFPD Command Posts – it’s sauce for the gander:
San Francisco Police Mobile Command One is huge, as you can see…

“Tizen Developer Conference Culminates With Introduction of New Devices, Device Profiles, Developer Tools and Internet of Things Roadmap
Capacity Number of Attendees Witness the Unveiling of the World’s First Tizen Smartphone, New Tizen IVI System and Tizen Smart Television SDK
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)!
It’s Not Android, iOS, or Windows Phone, It’s TIZEN – Developer Conference Begins in San Francisco, June 2-4, 2014Monday, June 2nd, 2014
Intel + Samsung = Tizen, sort of.
The big developer conference starts today:
Tizen Developer Conference 2014
The 3rd annual Tizen Developer Conference is a technical conference for Tizen developers, App developers, ISVs, Platform designers, Operators, OEMs, Hardware vendors, Software vendors, Open source enthusiasts, and anyone engaged in Tizen.
Tizen development has been primarily focused on mobile and in-vehicle infotainment the past few years, at the developer conference last year we focused largely on building our ecosystem and application development around these platforms.
Tizen is expanding beyond Mobile and IVI into a plethora of new devices, join us at this year’s developer event to explore the new opportunities Tizen is creating in this new era of the Internet of Things.
This year’s event will be held at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square from June 2-4. Visit our “Attendee Information” page for more information on the venue.
What to expect
Never been to a Tizen Developer Conference? Wondering what to expect this year?
Tizen Developer Conference is all about developer enablement. From keynotes to sessions to developer labs, the goal is to transfer knowledge from the world’s experts in Tizen to you.
At a high level, the keynotes help put Tizen into context within the industry. First, representatives from the Tizen Technical Steering Group will talk about the platform and future directions. You’ll also hear from Mark Bryan of iControl, one of the leading home automation, putting Tizen into context within the Internet of Things. In addition, Professor Lam from Stanford University will discuss how compelling apps can be easily created for wearable technologies like the Gear 2.
CFP, and are excited to share the conference schedule with you. We’ll have a broad variety of topics for app and platform developers alike. At a high level:
Platform development, for those working on Tizen source code.
App development, with sessions on HTML5 and the native APIs.
Tutorials and community, which includes porting Tizen to new devices, how to use the SDK, how to create
Tizen system images, etc.
TV, for more info on the Tizen TV architecture and app development.
IVI, which covers In-Vehicle Infotainment.
Ecosystem, which includes porting from other platforms to Tizen.
Wearables, for those developing apps for wearable devices.
IoT, which covers Tizen for Internet of Things.
This is the single largest gathering of Tizen developers worldwide. It’s a great place to expand your knowledge and refine your skills.
The Developer Lab:
What do you do with what you learned in the sessions? How about some hands-on implementation training?
Near the end of the conference we’ll have a longer session dedicated to Tizen app developers. This will be a hands-on session where you will learn how the Tizen app development process works, from setting up the SDK to developing and deploying an app.
