Actually had to wait in line to go in to the Apple store, funny story was looking at the watches and the guy says to me as he pulls a sample out "it's about the size of your watch" I said "oh you mean my Pebble". he kind of got quiet.  In the Microsoft store I was talking to one of their techs, who iss a Linux user. We talked distros and comparability for a few minutes. Either way it got me out of the house.

Even with delivery pricing, because of lower overhead and fewer employees, the mail order businesses will take brick and mortar stores unless they can offer services that the cloud stores cant.  Onsite services for one, "trying out" demos before the buy the other.

Today while on walkabout I stumbled on a crowd funding street festival called +One Spark

I met some pretty cool people there.

I talked with J Winder Hughes the creator and CEO of a social network called HIFI. I approached them thinking it was some audio application.  Basically it is a social network reliant on hashtags. Groups and such are setup as hashtags and people follow them, thus making hashtag followers searchable, so you can find people with similar interests. The Interface is cool, but unfortunately it is only available for IPhone, but I was assured that an Android version would be available in 3 Months. #lifeinhifi  www.lifeinhifi.com

DeutcheBank had a table at the event, basically to show off a their trading system I  talked with a few people there. We chatted about Linux, Blackberry, Lotus Notes and Banking Software in general. One of them handed me a card and asked be to look at employment opportunities with them. Hmmmm

I met the creators of a hackerspace called +CoLabJax. They where using a +Raspberry Pi as part a demo. Of course I spent a ton of time at their booth as we where all talking #linux  and #opensource . www.colabjax.org

While at the Colabjax booth one of the demos was by Down East 20/20 Speakers. They have a really cool product I may need to buy some when it come out. www.downeastspeakers.com

I talked with the creators of #igersjax  an instagram photowalk group.

I met some really cool musical artists and walked away with some free and not so free CD's to listen to.

I bought the Firewater Tent Revival CD, They had a pretty cool act. I really never got to chat with any of the members.

I chatted briefly with +Joseph Cartolano a local artist who just handed me a CD and asked me to give it a listen. FYI I listened to the CD while posting this, great tunes.
It was super loud where he was situated, so it was impossible to listen to any one thing.

Of course I stopped by Coastal Cookies for some tech crack.

Interesting about #hashtags I just read about having a specific hashtag is very important now in branding. #americanroadmag may well be one that is in use in Google for Work as one that will be used going forward.

Aluminum battery that charges in one minute. 
I saw a news segment about this on the 5 am local news here. Looks Interesting.

This could be a dream come true.
A team of researchers has built an aluminum-ion battery prototype which offers super-fast charging times.

App selection is one of the biggest factors in choosing a streaming media player for your TV. Here's how the major players compare.
