Apple ‘tests’ iPhone 5’s theft-tracking feature at Cava22

Woah, deja vu.

Just like last year, an iPhone prototype was “misplaced” by an Apple employee. This time, in a Mission bar! Cava22, to be exact, a place surely devoid of tech-savvy hipsters hoping to sneak a peak.

The phone was lost in late July, but using the built-in tracking features it was traced to a home in Bernal Heights. When investigators arrived and questioned the guy, he recalled being at Cava22 but denied anything about having the phone.

Suuure, dude. So someone happened to throw it in your bag and you somehow managed to keep it charged for a month?

Can’t wait to see how this develops.

Brian Wilson writing Giants-themed graffiti on area wall

Suck it, property owners! Cool tag, Brian!

(Kinda weird how he’s hovering six inches off the sidewalk though, right?)

UPDATE: From the looks of his Facebook page, the artist seems to be from Philly. Here’s an exchange with a fan on his wall:

Anthony Mangano: I hate Brian Wilson

Get up: HAHA I expect lots of that! They love him out here tho, doin it for the people haha

Early electro, new wave, dark wave, punk and post-punk TONIGHT

Here’s the deal, according to Wam Bam Ashleyanne herself:

10PM-2AM. No cover.

All vinyl cuts from a darker side… early electro, new wave, dark wave, punk, post-punk. I’ll have some Slits, Echo & The Bunnymen, and Adam Ant in tow. [link]

I went to this party last month and it was funnnnnnn. I love soul and techno as much as the next guy but it was fun for once to go to a party in the Mission that wasn’t soul or techno.
