Transit officials reopened the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge early Tuesday after completing a new half-mile detour that connects the East Span to the Yerba Buena Tunnel and repairing a crack on the bridge. The 73-year-old bridge was closed from Thursday through Labor Day weekend so crews could remove a 300-foot section near Yerba Buena Island and replace it with a new double-deck section as part of a long-planned seismic upgrade. But on Saturday, crews inspecting the bridge discovered a 2-inch-thick steel I-bar had cracked halfway through, said California Department of Transportation spokesman Bart Ney.

And the latest iPad 3 rumor is -- drumroll please -- that Apple's new iPad will make its debut in the first week of March. The tech news site AllThingsD reported Wednesday that unnamed sources have said that Apple has selected the first week of next month for the next iPad launch event, which will likely take place in San Francisco at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts , where Apple has held many events in the past. John Paczkowski, who wrote the AllThingsD report, said he'd guess " retail availability will follow roughly the same schedule as that of the iPad 2: available for purchase a week or so after the event.
