A massive line full of people who almost certainly never heeded their parents' entreaties to get off the computer and go outside and play thronged SOMA today for the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). 

The big draw today at Moscone Center: A potential unveiling of the very latest iPhone -- a privilege only available previously to drinking patrons at the Gourmet Haus Staudt bar in Redwood City.

In any event, the next big surprise announcement from the Great and Powerful Oz ... er, Steve Jobs, will be made soon enough.

Put your money on an iSomething being hailed as the future of society and computing -- with the veritable old Mac taking the back seat.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
