In one window I have ustream.tv going with the carnival down at the Apple store in Palo Alto:

While on the television in my office I have Fox News running nonstop coverage of two (so far) car bombs discovered in downtown London.

Quite an odd moment really, one event large and overblown but destined to not be remembered this time next year, the other remote by Valley standards yet with reverberations that ring for years to come. One that plays to our worst fears, the other to our most optimistic imaginations.

UPDATE: Very tired this morning and in the process of cleaning out the spam that gets past Akismet I deleted a comment thinking it was spam because of the prolific use of the word “iPhone”. However it was not and I can’t undelete the comment so I’m putting the link up for your enjoyment.
