Cambridgeside Galleria seemed like a nice fit for the shopping needs: nano for me and a Canon S3 for Mr. T.
Killed time waiting by visiting the reliably excellent MIT Press bookstore next to Kendall Square T-station. I’ve never been successful exiting the shop without spending money. Though this time got off easy: just two books and the newest issue of Technology Review.
The shuttle to the Galleria was way more convenient than expected, and we had two hours to take care of. Ended up with a persistently beeping backpack, and the security guys were not able to tell what was the cause. Figured that the visit is more pleasant not setting off every security gate passed, and gave up after a couple of shops.
Did get the nano. The eight gig model is available in the same color configurations as the original T-model Ford, which shattered my wishes of owning a purplish pink player. The packaging has shrunk a lot since the last purchase – the size does not bode well for a proper charger.
Prison Break was still consistently sold out in every dvd outlet. Bought the first season of Soap, just to check out whether it’s as good as I remembered (and the folder was plenty cheap).
