The Road to Hana is well worth the trip. Especially if the Hana Travaasa Hotel is at the end of it!

Ancient grains and natural leaven give this loaf a unique taste. My first attempt at the Tartine 3 master loaf.

Yes, I was wrong!

I admit it. I was sure the Apple-Beats rumors were bogus. I just couldn't convince myself that it made any sense for Apple. 

True the deal costs them nothing. With revenues over $1.4B per year Beats sold at a hair over 2x earnings. It was a bargain. (Hmm. Why so cheap?) Apple will get its money back in just a couple of years and after that it's all profit in a very high margin business. But this deal wasn't about money. 

I'm increasingly convinced it was all about Jimmy Iovine. And not just his rolodex or deal making ability, but as front man. Every great rock and roll band has a front man. Apple lost its front man in 2011 and Tim Cook is at best a competent drummer with all the charisma of Phil Collins. 

It seems to me Apple is looking for someone who can electrify the crowd, make the deals, and bring back the cool. I don't know enough about Iovine to know if he's the Man, but I'm betting Cook and company think he is. 

We'll see Monday when Iovine makes his on-stage debut at WWDC.

This is Apple trying to connect with young, black males.

First attempt at the Tartine master loaf. This is a 60% Kamut bread with a unique taste. The natural leaven gives it a nice sour tang. I can imagine the ancient Egyptians eating a very similar loaf.

60% Kamut makes for a challenge and it looks and sounds like you pulled it off well!

+Farrid Mailloux Well Farrid, you seem to be the loyal minority still supporting Blackberry. I could be wrong and Blackberry has many more years left in business. But I only see them staying relevant with patents and software. They seem destined to stop making hardware devices.

Again, this is all personal opinion and I don't know how much fighting power Blackberry has left.With the luke warm reception of Blackberry 10 devices last year, I just don't see what hardware advances they could do to stay competitive.
