Nice jacket!

I've spotted a couple of people in jackets with an aqua "X" logo on the back near the collar, the logo Apple was using to promote Mac OS X shortly before its release. Last night I was riding up in the elevator with such a jacket, a gorgeous leather jacket, and I asked the wearer what it was. He said Apple handed it out to everyone at WWDC a few years ago! It was probably the 2000 conference. I'd much rather have something like that than another bag. :-)

My other observation of note today... all the women here must be laughing their asses off. They get to zip by the long lines of men waiting to get into the men's rooms between sessions, or at the Apple campus last night! The ratio is probably something like 20:1 this year.

Rhapsody in Blue

I was sitting here whistling along with the music playing while I'm on hold with United Airlines, thinking they have great taste in hold music! Then I remembered that United has used "Rhapsody in Blue" as their theme music for years! But it's still a great choice.

I must have a recording of this somewhere... but I can't recall seeing it in ages. Wonder if it's one of the CDs stolen ages ago in Rochester.
