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