We’ll leave discussion of today’s Apple event to our esteemed colleagues in online journalism, but we can’t resist showing you these videos of Al Gore and Gavin Newsom (respectively, not together, though WE WISH because then we’d call them Alvin or GaAl or something hahaha can you tell I ate 4 Dynamo Donuts this morning?) arriving at Yerba Buena Gardens Theater this morning to learn all about a device that’s already launched more menstruation jokes than we’re going to bother to link to.

For this one of Al Gore, videographer JJ San says

But no secret entrance even for the former VP!

Nobody else seemed to notice him come in; it was kinda cool to just be at the right place on this one. I thanked him for his work on the environment in the 1.5 seconds of his time that I had 🙂

As for this one of Gavin, San just says “Trying to keep a relatively low pro.”

Oh. hell, one more thing: Meow Mix’s Apple, Me is a hoot, in which the blog’s author meets his iDoppelganger.

    Cute video of Al Gore, but it’s worth noting that he’s on Apple’s board, so it’s not a huge surprise that he’d be there. (Or maybe it is a huge surprise, since he’s certainly known about this for a long, long time.)
