A couple of days ago myself and a colleague of mine ran into our Apple account exec. The conversation ended up in the security space, as is probably appropriate considering Apples recent performance in that area. Our account exec quickly followed up with a request for our contact information (good), a press-release style announcement on how much more secure Safari 5.1.7 was going to be (interesting), and a month old article on how to remove Flashback (amusing).
Aaron Smith posted this story about the kindness of an NYC cab driver. It's a good read, and it reminds me of something vaguely similar that happened to be a few decades ago.
I had just moved 400 miles from home to a small town in Minnesota near where my grandfathers sister had moved in the 1930's. He didn't get to see her very often, so when I moved near her farm he had an excuse to make the trip.
