Correct me if I'm wrong, but as I understand it, there's no technological reason Siri couldn't run on previous-gen iPhones - the 4s restriction is strictly a marketing decision to twist people's arms into upgrading. If any other company had done this, everyone would be crying out "I call shenanigans."

Yup, no technical reason why it couldn't run on older hardware. The processing is done in a dark Apple dungeon by a team of trained pigeons, not by the phone.

OK - Mel Gibson is developing a movie about Jewish warrior Judah Maccabee, to be written by the scribe who created Basic Instinct and Showgirls. What could go wrong?

Mitt Romney on his 150-page jobs plan: "If you don't happen to get one in your hand you can go to Amazon Kindle and you can get one of these... it's in color on Kindle." I have no idea whether the plan is any good, but I know one job the Romney camp could use -- tech consultant. Or is he the first American with a color Kindle?

Might be the Kindle app?

Day 4 in the electricity-deprived cave post-Irene. Started cat-juggling by candlelight to amuse myself in the evening. Can't test the gear I'm supposed to be writing about, so I'm thinking of submitting tech-themed limericks instead. "There once was a girl from Paree, who wanted a brand new TV, but she found 3D glasses, were pains in the asses, so she settled for plain old HD."

Best email subject line in this morning's inbox: a press release entitled "Cybersecurity: Are Consumers Exposing Themselves?"

Phase 2 of the self-publishing experiment is complete - my eBook is now available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Phase 3: Smashwords, which distributes to the iBook store, among others. Then a little extra formatting magic for Amazon's print-on-demand program. Interesting change from my years in book publishing, when my wife-to-be was meticulously glueing down galleys to create photo-ready pages for the printer.

A little something to fight off the Monday doldrums -- Gary Moore's harder-edged version of the Easybeats' Friday on My Mind.

At 7:30pm our power was finally restored. Thus, the series Epistles from the Cave comes to an end, and we return you to our regularly scheduled programming...
... like asking who in the world would have this license plate on their car?

You have to love local news broadcasts. I know Hurricane Irene may flatten my Long Island home like a 100-year-old pancake, but crying wolf when the predicted storm path stretches from destroying western Pennsylvania to dribbling off with little drama well east of Montauk seems like ratings-grabbing rather than public-serving.

Yesterday I got an email with the subject line "Cybersecurity: Are Consumers Exposing Themselves?" Today I get a press release from a company called MountMe. Am I on the R-rated PR list?

Lawyerspeak for consumer electronics is always funny, and when you add Japanese-to-English translation it just gets better. Page 5 of the manual for JVC's 3D camcorder: "Recording and viewing of 3D images is not recommended for people with medical history of photosensitivity, heart disease, feel sick, suffer from lack of sleep, suffer from fatigue, or are drunk."
