Tech Friday: iOS Passbook, Eventbrite & RomneyRyan Rally

Posted By on November 2, 2012

applepassbookiconI found an excuse to use the Apple iOS Passbook app on the iPhone 5 yesterday while adding tickets to a Romney Ryan Real Recovery Road Rallyeventbritelogo being held tonight just north of Cincinnati in my hometown of West Chester Ohio.

The ticket distribution site EventBrite makes easy checkout and automatically adds the QR coded ticket to Passbook. Hopefully this will be easier than the attempt I made with the airport ticket scanner on my Palm Pre a few months ago?

I was going to head over to the local Romney/Ryan victory rally after having dinner with a client-friend, but with Kid Rock and the long slate of GOPers a few miles from my house — I wonder if I should forgo my 5:30 PM dinner so I can park somewhere? I recall that the last couple of big rallies were a logistical nightmare (10,000 for Palin2008 and 50,000 for Bush2004 at VOA).

  • Figured I had better freshen up on the Brooks and Dunn lyrics.

    “Only In America”

    Sun coming up over New York City
    School bus driver in a traffic jam
    Starin’ at the faces in her rearview mirror
    Looking at the promise of the Promised Land
    One kid dreams of fame and fortune
    One kid helps pay the rent
    One could end up going to prison
    One just might be president

    Only in America
    Dreaming in red, white and blue
    Only in America
    Where we dream as big as we want to
    We all get a chance
    Everybody gets to dance
    Only in America

    Sun going down on an La. freeway
    Newlyweds in the back of a limousine
    A welder’s son and a banker’s daughter
    All they want is everything
    She came out here to be an actress
    He was the singer in a band
    They just might go back to Oklahoma
    And talk about the stars they could have been

    [Chorus]

    Only in America
    Where we dream in red, white and blue
    Only in America
    Where we dream as big as we want to
    We all get a chance
    Everybody gets to dance
    Only in America

    Yeah only in America
    Where we dream in red, white and blue
    Yeah we dream as big as we want to
