Ruminations of the Easily Amused for May 19 2009

19 May 2009 at 12:23:51 PM

I am addicted to my new Iphone. I never felt this way about my old cell phone, which didn't even have a camera, dang it! I am reminded about a seminar I went to when I worked for a graphics software company that used to be in Richardson. They sent all of us to a Franklin Planner daytimer seminar. I loved my Franklin planner. I put all my appointments in it, and other relevant information and carried it EVERYWHERE. I accidentally lost my original one when travelling in Chicago one year and went out and bought another. I haven't used one of them since I haven't been working, and my computer has had all that info, but the iphone reminds me of the utter joy I had with a franklin planner. Being able to have all my contacts, appointments, schedules. Except it's much much better! I have put on some applications and some music in the last couple of days, and got a charger for the car (I never did that for my cell phone, it was just an unloved appendage). I put a picture of my favorite goose on the front as background, I added a few apps that I wanted, like a ToDo, a Fitness app, Stanza (for books) , Shopper (to replace my handwritten lists for stores), a link to Twitter, and the Koi pond. (I did think about putting on my uncle's favorite app, the Fart app, but decided not to-heh). What I wish now is that sharpreader would make an iphone app for RSS and I'd be set-I'm going to look at RSS apps for iphone, maybe there's one that will come close to sharpreader. Anyway, I'm just enamoured and I finally understand why people like iphones so much!

I never went to the Starck club but I had friends who did.Pictures from the DMN.

O the geek in me loves this.
