E-Waste recycling

Calvary Church in Shadyside has an e-waste recycling event on Saturday, January 19, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

You can no longer throw out electronics with the trash, so this is a great chance to get those pieces recycled at no cost.

Additionally, if you need a hard drive destroyed, they will have a service available for $10 each

You can find out more at Calvary’s website.

iphone 3g line and Voter Registration


Since I was up and working on email early this morning I decided to head to the Coffee Tree on Walnut Street in Shadyside for a cup of coffee. I had to cross quite a line of people to actually get into the Coffee Tree. At 8am this morning the new iphone 3g is going on sale and this is quite a line of people waiting to get the new iphone.

While waiting in line – the Apple employees are handing out free coffee from the coffee tree (thank you for supporting a local business) and there are 2 guys working the line with clipboards of voter registration forms (I think they are wearing Obama buttons but I am not sure).

I did a quick search of Pittsburgh bloggers – thus far the only other person blogging about the iphone is blindsquirel.org – he decided the iphone 3g isn’t for him yet.

It’s now 8:30 am and the line is still stretching as far as the Coffee Tree.
