As part of its punishment, it was barred from selling CA lottery tickets.
Well, looks like it’s back in the LOTTO biz now. See?
IDK, I don’t think California should even have a lottery.
As seen a few days back – that square, that’s your elevator car. Haven’t seen it in a while:
And here’s the close-up color version, from all the way back in 2004:
(I remember thinking how the workers in the basket should have appeared clearer in this photo. I guess I was super-far away, oh well.)
In closing, take that, Great Pyramid. Pwned:
NO! DO NOT WANT!
Now myself, I don’t care about the slow orbits this morning over the Castro, Western Addition, and the Haights.
But other people, they care about the white chopper with the blue tail.
42 inches and 1080i? Was that a good combo back in 2007?
I think not.
My 2011-era 70-incher* from Costco cost less and is much better, obvs. (It will go the distance, it will last for decades, IMO)

Of course, things such as TVs always get better, but this extremely heavy, extremely thick plasma model for almost $3000 was simply too much, too soon. And now it’s busted but it became obsolete before then.

Now, let’s hear from San Francisco Mayor Ron Conway,* after the jump. (Spoiler: He wants you to go to Chipotle’s and spend your money before you blow town.)
PS: The after party will be in the Mission District – spread the word, bring fireworks.
*Poor Sony. It appears that any television-like contraption bigger than 100 inches now gets the generic term “jumbotron.”
“Displays similar to the Jumbotron include:
As promised, here’s Katie Couric’s postcard to the 415, recorded inside a minivan as she was heading down to SFO a few days back:
I’ll tell you, I haven’t seen anything from the NBC in years and the games of the 2012 Olympiad aren’t going to change anything.
