The Bull Run has been a Tavern for centuries and their philosophy is simple: use only the freshest ingredients from area small farms and providers; treat the staff and the talent like gold; support the local events and institutions that truly create community; and bring world-class entertainment to Central Massachusetts.
It's all about the Apps. There is little doubt that Apple’s iPhone has revolutionized personal communications gadgets. It has introduced us to an “anything-anytime-anywhere” feeling . But at what price? Are devices like the iPhone “distracting brain mushers” that are making us dumber? Is the idea of privacy now a quaint concept of the past? Apple and the iPhone are also about extreme close corporate control, and the App store has been accused of imposing censorship, stifling innovation and fostering conformity. Is there any basis for any of these concerns? Tonight on Inquiry, we welcome BRIAN X. CHEN, former Associate Editor for Macworld Magazine and currently a writer for Wired.com. His new book addresses all these and also describes the evolution of the iPhone and why Apple has been such a successful company. Brain’s book is ALWAYS ON: How the iPhone Unlocked the Anything-Anytime-Anywhere Future-and Locked Us In.
