Steve Jobs’ sister, Mona Simpson, presented a moving eulogy at her brother’s funeral. Go ahead and read that first, before we move onto the dumb jokes.
Wait…my local Jason’s Deli doesn’t have Wi-fi but train commuters on the east coast (and soon the west) will soon have internet access while they sit in their antiquated transportation? Foolishness!

Life is hard. When you want to stream movies or TV shows from the quiet safety of your home, you have to check Netflix and Amazon and Hulu AND iTunes. Ugh. So much work, Too much work, even. Too much work for one man…but not for CanIStream.It, the new service that lets you enter a movie title and watch while the ancient, mystical magic that is the internet pumps steam into some unknown pipes, turning noisy gears and producing a result…that result being where the movie is available to watch, complete with direct links. As streaming becomes more prevalent — and various rights issues keep films from being available everywhere — this could very well become a useful tool.
