This morning’s experiment: Free wi-fi in downtown San Jose.

The guy next to me can’t get his wi-fi setup up and running. Shoulda got a Mac, eh?

I was hoping to post pictures from here but in a supreme act of techno-incompetence, I forgot the USB cable to connect my camera to my iBook. A bummer too, because there’s a cool Mexican-heritage parade going on. I got some swell pix of dancers in Aztec costumes. Fortunately there were no human sacrifices.

Other downside of taking the laptop along: the weight of the laptop. It’s 10 pounds, max, but it adds up.

I’ll post pics when I get back home.
