It's Mardi Gras season right now in New Orleans. If you are here in New Orleans, I'm sure that you are enjoying the parades and good times with friends and family. If you are not in the Big Easy right now, well, you should be, and you ought to try to make up for it by coming in town for Jazz Fest next month.
Normally there wouldn't be much connection between the iPhone and Mardi Gras, but the theme of one of the parades this past Saturday (the Krewe of Tucks) was "iTucks: What's APPening," as you can see from these pictures of the title float in the parade:
Many of the floats made fun of apps and most of the floats found a way to stick a small "i" at the start of various words. And if the theme itself didn't do enough to emphasize the popularity of the iPhone/iPad and the App Store, the fact that this little fellow preferred playing with an iPhone over catching beads from floats speaks volumes:
Many businesses shut down for a few days during Mardi Gras and those people who don't stay home to watch the parades often use this as an opportunity to take a vacation, so iPhone J.D. is taking a break this week. See you next week, and laissez les bons temps rouler!
