iBuy, iPay, iBreak, iPhone

Justin convinced me into buying an iPhone. It was either the iPhone or the HTC touch pro. Seeing as the touch pro would be 800-1000 and not yet released, I think the iPhone is overall a good decision.

I have to hand it to apple, they know how to provide one sexy GUI. It is a pleasure to use the device (for the most part.) I was worried about the on screen keyboard, but the phone has a wonderful system for predicting what you want. In most cases I don’t have any issues getting the message across. Only in username and password fields is it an issue.

Microsoft Exchange is up and running with my Accenture email. It is fantastic. I feel so important now. Too bad Best Buy is against, but I can still use webmail to get at my best buy email.

My only gripe so far is that my vibrate switch broke. This seems to be a common problem for some of us and it looks like I will have to take it into one of these so called “genuises” to get it sorted out.

Other than that, I’m so impressed by the apps. Pandora and Twinkle (Twitter with so much more than just tweets) right now are just friggen cool. AIM is functional and there are plenty more free apps to try. I’m tempted to start programming some of my own. We shall see.

I only hope that I can get to bed tonight at a decent hour.

Apps I have and look useful:

  • Twinkle
  • AIM
  • Facebook
  • WordPress
  • Google Mobile App
  • Pandora

With great knowledge

…comes great responsibility, is half the battle, is power, corrupts absolutely.  Pick which ever you think best fits the situation, but it doesn’t change the fact that I am graduating.  The University of Minnesota has found it to be that I am qualified and have met all requirements to be presented a Bachelor of Science in Economics.  Ok, so I don’t have the diploma yet, but I have gone through the formalities and I know I passed my final today.  (More than just passed I would say.)  Econometrics has succumbed to my will.  However, I am not without battle scars to show the treacherous path that I have walked.

I’m going through these Monster Cookies at an alarming rate.  I can safely say that it is not helping my exercise goals.  I really need to build that exercise app. for the site to apply more fictional accountability.

You may notice that Gravatar as well as twitter has been added to the site.  If you aren’t part of either app. may I suggest you sign up.  It will increase your happiness by 5 points.  (You can sign up for both by clicking on their respective links.  I promise that it is supper easy.)  Becasue I have installed both these apps, I figure that I might as well partake in both.  This is why I’m now working on an icon to represent myself.  I’ve not had to make a small icon for a long time and since I want it to be used globally across all apps I figure it should be neat.  So I’m trying to make a neat icon.  Yup, a neat icon.

People don’t say the word neat enough.

During my last commute home from school, I once again came to the conclusion that as a race human beings don’t deserve the right to drive.  Everyone is a terrible driver; including myself.  I’d like to think I’m better than others, but that is pretentious and I’m sure from a different set of eyes I would be dangerous and aggressive.  This is why I think we need to phase out “driving” and”roads” altogether.  I have a solid idea and plans for implementation that need a little more work, but I think that it would be the very beneficial solution to many of our problems.  It would cut down on CO2 emissions, general stress levels, accidents, reliance on petrol, commute times, shipping costs and countless other issues.  Just saying that if anyone is interested in talking about it, I’ve got a lot of ideas.

Next task to work on will be the resume.  If anyone knows of a position for a Econ BS Major, Math Minor and Management Minor give me a heads up.  In the mean time it’s time to lay the groundwork for a productive future.  Here’s hoping that all the knowledge I’ve collected doesn’t corrupt me.
