Selling the Public Press to people waiting in line at iPhone 4 launch at San Francisco Apple Store

There were long lines when the iPhone 4 went on sale at 7 am on Thursday, June 24th

The line wasn't as long by the time I returned to get a phone around 3 pm that afternoon, but I was warned the wait could be five hours

It turned out to be about three hours (which still was long enough that some people left the line even though they had reserved a phone).

I can't believe I forgot to mention the TinEye Music iPhone app to Brad when we'd been chatting the night before his talk. And much later on the Zap Friday, Paul and Leila from Idée arrived with the news their app was now live on the iTunes store.

Cool Toys Pic(s) of the Day (ahem, Week) - Grid Republic, BioArtography, uChek, The Wait We Carry, Own a Colour
iPhone News
Image by rosefirerising
I seem to be going through a rough patch schedule-wise, which is
interfering with the usual daily Cool Toys posts. So, for this week, here's
a round-up of things I wanted to post this week, and would have posted if I
hadn't needed to sleep.

[image: Inline image 1]

Grid Republic:
www.gridrepublic.org/

Remember the SETI@Home project? Where people gave permission for their
computer power to be shared with the SETI project whenever the screensaver
kicked in? Same idea, but closer to home. Share your computer cycles with
projects for the biological and health sciences, and related topics. My eye
was caught by this example they'd posted.

Areas with low malaria rates 'need mass vaccination':
www.scidev.net/global/systems/news/areas-with-low-malaria...

[image: Inline image 2]

BioArtography:
www.bioartography.com/

I'd love this even if it wasn't from the University of Michigan! I've been
a huge fan of beautiful science photography from labs for DECADES. You
don't want to know how excited I get over the Nikon Small World Contest.
But getting my hands on the pictures is a different matter. I beg for the
free calendars my colleagues get from life science suppliers. I wander
through the lab buildings when I have an excuse snapping surreptitious
iPhone pics of pretty postings on the walls. Here, UM is selling prints and
posters and cards (oh my) of gorgeous photographs from campus labs, with
the proceeds going to fund conference travel expenses for grad students and
students, BRILLIANT!!!

[image: Inline image 3]

uChek:
uchek.in/

I could not resist. uChek is an app + device to turn your iPhone into a
portable urinalysis lab. How cool is that? More info about other tech uses
for urine in my blogpost over at ETechLib:

The Wait We Carry:
thewaitwecarry.org/

Heart wrenching, beautiful, fascinating data visualization of the stats and
stories of United States Veterans waiting for health care coverage to treat
their injuries and related health and mental health complications. The
dataviz starts and ends with stories, offering a window from the war into
the lives of real soldiers who've returned from the wars. There is an
enormous amount of data, which can be sliced and diced in many ways. Want
to know how your state compares? You can do that. Veterans from Operation
Iraqi Freedom? Yes, you can break the info out by conflict. Both? Sure, why
not. Go, explore.

Own A Colour:
www.ownacolour.com/

Because it's gorgeous, and clever. Own a Colour, developed by Glidden
Paints, is one of the most innovative fundraising apps I've seen. Choose
one of the millions of colors that can be displayed on modern high
resolution monitors, claim it, say why you love it, and donate the funds to
UNICEF.

www.demotix.com/news/644578/universal-sigh-handed-out-san...

A man looked at the hundreds of people in a line which began on Haight Street in front of Amoeba Music San Francisco and snaked into a McDonald's parking lot and asked, "What band is playing?" "A newspaper" was the response from a man in the line. "A newspaper?"

But it wasn't just any newspaper the mostly young crowd was waiting for. It was Radiohead's The Universal Sigh which featured art and writing with an environmental theme which was distributed for free in cities around the world. Most let their photo be taken with iPhones to be uploaded to the paper's website.

Ally Roarty and her friend who gave her name as Britney S. gave out the papers and took photos with their iPhones.

Maxime Stinnett who teaches a student DeCal class on The Life Lyrics, and Music of Radiohead at UC Berkeley, bought the band's new album on vinyl at Amoeba and waited in line to get copies of the paper to use in teaching his class.

A woman arrived and parked her car in the street as the last people in line got their papers. She hadn't been able to get a copy of the paper at another distribution site in the Mission which ran out of the paper, so she drove to Amoeba and was able to get The Universal Sigh.

The Bridge on the River Kwai digitally restored at the Castro
iPhone News
Image by Steve Rhodes

through Sept 16th

I was a bit surprised to see it is not being shown on film but "Digital ‘Scope"

"digitally restored from the original negatives to create this stunning new 2k DCP."

There will be a blu-ray DVD in November

Jeffrey Anderson writes:

"According to a press release, the original negative was newly scanned at 4K, and from there all the restoration work was completed. The color was corrected, scratches and dirt were removed, and rips and tears were mended. In addition, some mismatched dissolves were also corrected. Apparently there was even a malfunctioning camera that resulted in a few unwanted effects that have all been corrected.

Now, thanks to the digital transfer, the film can be shown in is proper aspect ratio of 2.55:1 instead of being cropped for 2.35:1.

Finally, the real screenwriting credits are restored, including the formerly blacklisted Michael Wilson and Carl Foreman."
