Recently, the world famous Budweiser Clydesdale horses rode through town to do a beer run. They actually had to drop off a case of Bud at each of the local bars. Well in any case, it became a spectacle. I wasn’t actually expecting it to be that ‘chaotic’. I’m not really going to talk about the horses. Sure, they were magnificent beasts, all very well mannered and groomed to perfection. No, I really want to talk about the cell phone or ‘iPhone-tography’ (is that what it is really called?) that’s just the craze these days. (more…)

For now watch me unbox Sony’s new system.
Whilst at lunch, I so happen to stop by the Best Buy near my office (Union Square, in NYC), and they had a kiosk up with a PS4, ready and waiting for customers to try out.
