The Palo Alto Buddhist Temple is holding their annual obon festival this Saturday and Sunday! The main bon odori event starts at 7:30pm on Sunday. Arrive early to eat yummy food, watch San Jose Taiko perform at 5:30pm, and get great seats.
The final obon dance practice (PDF) session was last night, but free online crash courses are still available. Download the full schedule (PDF) for the 2010 playlist. It looks like there's a new towel dance, Gegege no Furusato, this year.
The iPhone 4 Case Program that was announced last week is here. This iPhone 4 user was pleased to receive an email from Apple yesterday stating that the Bumper purchase from the Apple Store had been automatically refunded. (Just out of curiosity, has anyone who has received a refund for a Bumper tried to get a different free case?) Christmas has come early for the third party case manufacturers whose wares are free choices alongside Apple's black Bumper.
P.S. Motorola may not want to be so smug about the double antenna design of the DROID X because Apple also released a video that shows attenuation happens. In other news from yesterday, 73% of iPhone users are very satisfied with AT&T!
