Or rather, the answer will amaze the owner of this cafe in the Upper Haight area.

That’s ’cause, yes, this kind of thing isn’t permitted in the City & County.

OMG OMG, the New Samsung Galaxy S III Phone is Here, Almost – Release Date is June 21 on the T-Mobile

Monday, June 4th, 2012

The highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III is a coming on June 21, 2012, at (achtung, baby!) T-Mobile, (aka Deutsche Telekom AG) anyway – that’s the news.

Oh, it turns out that that big AT&T / T Mobile merger isn’t going to happen, so TMO soldiers on as America’s #4 (and Germany’s #1) cell phone carrier, not that that really affects me. What affects me is that the T-Mobile doesn’t work so hot in the Lower Haight / Between the Haights (BTH) areas, I’ve noticed, lately, for whatever reason. Otherwise TMO is AOK.

This new device is wide. My man-hands will be able to handle it (in about a half-year or so when my re-up time comes), but what about your hands? I don’t know.

Deets from this AM’s release are below.

Saving Microsoft’s Bacon: Those “Illegal” Windows Phone + Maroon 5 Sidewalk Ads Clean Up With a Quickness, Actually

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

Now, the way that the Mission Local was talking, I was thinking that Microsoft was heading for a six-figure headache over the whole Windows Phone / Maroon 5* / AT&T semi-permanent-chalk sidewalk ad illegality imbroglio.

But then when you look at these glowing green ad things on Valencia and when you grab a random abandoned bottle of liquid something (turned out to be soap, the nozzle’s mostly busted) sitting on top of a trash can nearby and then you start scrubbing to see how hard it is and then two minutes later, the ad is gone, más o menos, bingo bango.

Not so tough now, are you, Windows 7 Phone ad?

(To do the job properly, what you’d need is a floor brush from Chizhou City Changsheng Wooden Handicraft Factory or someplace.)

So, problem solved. Now, I know only one thing:

I gots to get paid.

I knows I gots to get paid. ’Cause I just saved your bacon, Microsoft / Waggener Edstrom Worldwide.

Now, as previously noted, I desire a 64GB Zune with AV Dock but not so much that I’d actually go out and pay for one.

Have your people get in touch with my people.

And, of course, mum’s the word and Bob’s your uncle…

*BTW, the concert’s already over with – I would have told you about it but I find the Maroon 5 oppressively girly and then you probably would have had to do a lot of hurry-up-and-wait to actually garner admission.
