Morning Brief — Thursday, July 31

My iPhone bricked the other day when I tried to update to 2.0 and I tried restoring it about 15 times to no avail.  Apparently a lot of people had problems when the 3Gs went on sale and the issue was high server traffic.  I did, however, attempt a restoration at 4 a.m. Sunday morning (race day — I don’t usually get up that early just for kicks) but it still didn’t work and I really can’t imagine when server traffic could be any lighter.  I text more than talk, so initially I wasn’t too bothered … until the Blackberry broke this morning.

If you see a carrier pigeon, do not be alarmed.  It’s probably from me.
