I wandered into a Verizon store to check out the touch screen Blackberry, intrigued by the fact that the screen clicks, but the interface was totally befuddling, even to a former computer guy/blackberry devotee like myself, agreeing with Pogue that this was an epic fail in interface design on RIM's part. The upside of this jaunt was that as I was fiddling, the girl next to me who was equally befuddled by the phone, whispered "hey, do you know who Kevin Bacon is?" Having no idea where this going, I just said yes. "he's right over here. Sure enough there he was in baseball cap and sunglasses, huddled with phone, trying to look inconspicuous. I surreptitiously snapped a photo, feeling somewhat guilty, but I openly admit to the standard weakness that celebriy inspires.
