From under the umbrella

Yes, it's Seattle. We had a huge rainstorm last night and then it cleared. Most of today was spent in cool threatening weather. Finally about 3:30 it started raining. 5 minutes later there wasn't a cloud in the sky. It got so hot Itook jacket and umbrella to the car. Now it is pouring, just when I got my computer open. So I'm typing one-handed, holding the umbrella in the other. Here are a couple of stories, scooped from KIRO, KING, and KOMO, who are all here with their vans and towers as if this were a newsworthy event.

I talked to Greg for a while. Why does he want an iPhone? Because it is Apple's newest and greatest thing. He has to have it. It's awesome technology. He wants to be the first to have it. And if it doesn"t work? Well, Apple will upgrade it in a few months.

Javier has a different story. He used to own a smartphone, but he didn't like the Internet access on it. He and his girlfriend are getting one because they like to surf and are especially looking forward to movies streaming from UTube. They aren't interested in TV, but are very interested in streaming video. He figures the e-mail and other features will be okay, but he's put off buying an iPod so he only needs one device.

It looks like Herb Weisbaum is about to go on air in a few minutes on KOMO 1000 radio. He's recording for later broadcast as well.
