i want my jetpack, too

If we’re supposedly living in this glorious future of personalized news and social search delivered through flashing desktop widgets and ambient devices, why don’t I have lights flashing and bells whistling alerting me to the fact that it’s 12:01 a.m, and there’s no apparent BART settlement?  This is one piece of news that absolutely will have a tangible impact on my day (and demeanor) tomorrow…why don’t I know about it now?

Whine, moan.

Update:  OK, so no BART strike.  That’s a good thing.  I still want my jetpack, though.
