Tough love tech

I was at the Hutchinson Center branch of the University of Maine last week and I urgently wanted to keep up with the news in the Mideast. I had on my person my cell phone and my iPod touch which is normally full of breaking news items from a wealth of sources, including pictures and live video. But the wifi went down for a while at the facility (and it's normally unavailable in some parts of the building) so I was dark except for the news I heard to and from lunch on the car radio.

I would have been better off packing one of my little AM-FM radios.

Sometimes the lowest tech is the best.

Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
