For when you just absolutely have to have those glass ceilings on your new flagship store, there’s no substitute for the Apple iCrane. Apple’s Third Street Promenade store is moving to new digs south of Santa Monica Boulevard. It makes sense for them to want to be closer to the new Santa Monica Place mall,… Read More Apple iCrane
I got to check this out during the members preview on Thursday. It was amazing. I think my life might suck less if I had Quincy’s couch. This weekend, as part of (what else?) the mega mid-century SoCal art survey Pacific Standard Time, LACMA will open California Design, 1930-1965: “Living in a Modern Way.” It’s… Read More Eames House , Barbie’s Scandinavian Dream House

Cell phone photos from a few hours ago. There were cops and cones at every street and alley for three blocks surrounding the Santa Monica Synagogue at 1448 18th Street in Santa Monica. I knew it was bad when I saw even the Park Rangers were there helping. I guess they ran out of parking peeps.

The Chiat/Day relationship with Steve Jobs and Apple is nothing short of legendary. That legend goes something like this: Chiat was hired by Apple to create the (also legendary) Ridley Scott-directed, $1 million, only-aired-once-cause-it’s-so-goddamn-special 1984 commercial that introduced the Macintosh line of computers during the Super Bowl.

Demand Media, an internet how-to and general information provider with headquarters in Santa Monica, went public Wednesday to the tune of some $1.5 billion. The more time goes by, the more companies I was salivating over working at last year turn out to look pretty crummy. In 2010 they invited me to interview for the… Read More Santa Monica Content Provider Goes Public
If you don’t look at the latency (“ping”) this could be an old school ADSL on copper – pretty cool. I hope to soon go back to the intersection of Fedora and Olympic (in my previous tests the strongest WiMAX signal between downtown Los Angeles and the beach) to see how the signal is with… Read More Sprint CDMA Rev.
