As quickly as the snow came, it was gone. Today is 60 degrees and rainy. Mother nature is schizophrenic, I tell you. I guess I am too.
After years of badmouthing all things Mac, I broke down and bought an iPh#$e last night. As much as I love Blackberry, the camera on it just sucks too much to even justify using. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not exactly in love with my new apple device. I still don’t like the touchscreen keyboard. Here are some other changes that I would make (after having used it for about 4 hours, so far):
- Make the unlock slider half way up the screen so that my thumb doesn’t have to cramp itself when unlocking with one hand.
- Auto power-down, power-on scheduling. I hate a buzzing phone in the middle of the night.
- Ability to select different alerts for different mailboxes.
- Customizable alert profiles (ie, turn off everything but the alarm clock and calendar alerts)
Maybe these are already functions that are available? I haven’t read the manual, yet. I meant to bring it on the train with me this morning, but forgot.
Anyway, I am now officially on instagram (though I have yet to post anything). In case you would like to be friends, I’m “shotbyjake.” Have a great weekend!
