[PARC Old Sign]
PARC finally got their sign approved by the city of Palo Alto. Here is the last shot of the old sign.

[Sock Glue]
Walt gave me this mysterious product from Japan -- a capsule of Sock Glue.

[T-Mobile Store Display]
I snapped this with my third Hiptop.

[Electra]
We had coffee at the Verona. This is their espresso machine.

Craig at PARC made ANZAC Biscuits with golden syrup that Becky got for him.


Today is Halloween.

Becky got a Hiptop last night.

I've written a few new Hiptop utilities. See them here.

I'm testing my new blogrouter, which I expect to make available to Hiptop users. It's still email based, like pagerouter, but it only handles blogging.

Use Google to find SIdekick News. Or find My Sidekick Press.

And another interview, with more extensive quotes, from The Inquirer, at http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=5698. Actually, what I said was "I don't want a cell phone because I don't feel the need to talk to people -- if I want to talk to someone I'll go there. I like the asynchronous email aspect."

CNET used the interview they did with me! They ended the article with a paragraph about me and a quote. http://news.com.com/2100-1040-960402.html

[My Sidekick, with camera]
Lots of fun with the Sidekick. It seems to work now. I had to power cycle it to get the network to work the first time. GSM/GPRS coverage is spotty around Palo Alto; I can move 10 feet and get full signal vs. no signal. Plus, even when there is a strong signal, the data connectivity shows disconnected. Either T-Mobile and Cingular are fighting for connectivity (sometimes the "Phone" screen shows one, sometimes the other), or there's some random firmware bug. In any case, I hope they get it worked out. But when (where?) it works, it's great. I gave Becky my T900.

Plugged it in and powered up. Now waiting for activation. Got interviewed by a telecom trade journal and CNET.

The Palo Alto T-Mobile store got 35 units, up from 15 originally scheduled. It's taking a long time because their activation system is not working!

Becky got up and got in line at the T-Mobile store at 7:35AM and got to be number 2 in line, complete with a T-Mobile frisbee marked T-Mobile Sidekick launch Customer #2. Becky is very good to me. Leigh.
