At opposite western corners of Florence and Normandie stand two empty lots. One is fenced in chain-link, full of dirt clods and rust; the other choked with weeds run wild. Amid homemade advertisements for hauling services, handyman and gardening work, a dozen or so brightly colored signs adorn the chaos: "Mike Woo For Mayor." Is this a promise?

Thrifty consumers who bought an iPad 2 from Best Buy in the last couple of weeks have been riding an emotional roller coaster that has ranged from smug elation to hesitation to frustration. It started off well: On Feb. 25, Best Buy launched what sounded like a great deal--dropping the price of its entire line of iPads by $50.
