Gymnastics Camp

SKGP is back from Nastia Luikin's UCLA Gymnastics Camp, and I think she had a great time. She managed to stay the entire time, even though she had some homesickness. She liked the food.  Details have been difficult to extract.

Bet: iPhone 4

My father made a bet today. 

1. He believes within the next several months, Apple will release an iPhone 4 with a changed antenna.  That is, there will be a hardware fix.

2. He further believes that Apple will them offer some incentive to current iPhone 4 users to move to this new phone, such as $100 credit.

I could possibly see the first coming true, but very unlikely. If Apple decides to do a cosmetic fix (e.g., some version of duct tape over antenna gap), they could get that out in the next couple months, but that's not really the Apple way.

I think he's out of his mind with his second statement.

On a related note, does anyone know how I can get an iPhone in my hands?

Friday in San Francisco

Yesterday, the kids and I went to San Francisco to go to the Exploritorium. We parked the car and used Yelp to find a corner store that made sandwiches for lunch. Then, we wandered into the Presidio to find a bathroom, and I remembered that there was a statue of Yoda nearby, which we found. Then we spent several hours playing with the amazing exhibits at the Exploratorium. I hadn't been in over twenty years, and it was still amazing. We did a little bit of driving around the City -- went down curvy Lombard, drove by the TransAmerica building -- and came home, hitting Aqui in San Jose for dinner.
