At long last I am sitting at the gate in the San Francisco Airport where I will soon be heading back to the old hacienda. It’s been a whirlwind couple of weeks with the long CES trip to Vegas, one day home and then out to San Francisco to meet with my buds at GigaOM. Both trips were well worth the trouble and went down swimmingly but it’s time to be home for a bit. I have not been in Mobile Tech Manor for a couple of weeks so had no columns during that time and I missed doing them. Consider this a poor substitute but here are my random thoughts from the road in no particular order.
