It’s just that the iPhone syncs really well with the Macintoch in a way that...

If you’re on Twitter you may have noticed – or may not have seen — that I just landed in Denver.  But here I am after having caught a flight from Oakland to this hub with the intent of catching another flight to Atlanta.  That flight, UAL 7515, which was to leave at about 7 PM, was delayed to 9:19 PM, giving me time to catch up on stuff like blogging.  I think this is the fourth time I’ve been at DIA this year, the other three trips courtesy of my work at the Democratic National Convention.  But...
