price point

The Apple I went on sale in July 1976 and was priced at $666.66.

While You Were Out: Apple's Years With and Without Steve Jobs, in today's New York Times.

Steve Wozniak on how they arrived at the price point:
I simply like triple digit numbers with all the things I'm involved with, the cost of making the Apple 1 was around $540 or there abouts and we agreed on the best markup, retail price above the cost of building it, which worked out to $666.

Jobs then tacked on the 66 cents to make it an eye-catcher price for the ads with the sale and promotion publications of it to the public.

Probably wasn't wise to take that trail ride in yesterday's downpour -- but it was worth it.

boston public, three ways

In total, this place may have the NYC Midtown branch beat. The courtyard puts it over the top. (But don't tell the Rose Reading Room I said that.)

Ducked another round of recreational eating and conference schmooze for a free concert at Berklee College of Music. Turned out to be the right decision. 

Thank you, Thom Brennan of the trumpet, and your brilliant, talented friends. Please keep playing. Always.

what you can't see

This woman is bedecked with a sash that identifies her as royalty. From where I sit I'm unable to make out what domain of rural or urban significance she serves as princess. On the seat beside her sits her gem studded seven-pointed crown and a bag of McDonald's take out.

The princess is hungry and enjoying her fries.

Two unexpected hours on the tarmac means I've just now checked in to a vending machine dinner of microwave popcorn and a nutragrain bar. Unsatisfying, when I had Pacific fresh sushi in mind. But hey: there's a pool outside my window.

And dear friends close by.
