Today at 6pm Eastern, the iPhone goes on sale. SUBWAYblogger will actually be in the area of “The Cube” to witness the insanity.
The iPhone really is a dream toy for me since a majority of this blog is written remotely via Blackberry. I wonder how easy writing on it would be?

This was in the New York Times, I kid you not:
An analysis by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority shows that some subway lines are often both crowded and late.
Well, thanks for the news captain obvious.  I’m glad that the MTA saw the need for an analysis to figure that out.  How about just riding a train [...]

Even after walking 20 blocks to the [...]
