The risk for iPhone users: They know too much

By Michelle Quinn
The Los Angeles, Times, March 22, 2008

Stuff Mentioned:

  1. Sushi
  2. Apple Products
  3. Whole Foods
  4. Microbreweries (implied)
  5. Living by the Water

Also the greatest passage in history:

“Wil Shipley, a Seattle software developer, uses his iPhone at the Whole Foods fish counter to check websites for updates on which seafood is the most environmentally correct to purchase. He quizzes the staff on where and how a fish was caught. Because he carries the Internet with him, “I can be super-picky,” he said.”

Sent in by Stephen, an English grad student living in Florida, who likes the British site BeThinking.
