So I’ve finished half a century on the Earth. The word century always sounds impressive. And while fifty years sounds impressive, half a century sounds even better. I don’t feel fifty years old but I really don’t feel half a century old.
So many things have turned out differently from what I ever might have imagined.
Recently I reported some phishing scam spam coming from a friend’s account – it looked likely that his email account had gotten cracked.
No shame on him for that; it happens all the time.
These are a few things that I do to help avoid that myself.
I headed over to Best Buy first thing Friday morning… they opened at 8AM and handled the iPad Air rollout very nicely. It was raining hard… they gave reservations for particular units to people who were there early and didn’t make anyone stand in the rain. (They also handled the iPhone 5 very nicely, even making appointments for people to come in to activate their new phones – not as streamlined as pickup at Apple but still pretty civilized).
