Oy.
Out sick for a day and one of my developers is moving to a different team.
D'oh.

New cell is nice, not too big and pretty color screen.
    Problems:
  1. Hard to turn vibrate on or off <-found the quick way
  2. No smart text messaging that I've seen
  3. Hard to quickly key lock <-found the quick way
    At the moment, I haven't the ability to get pictures off my phone, no USB cable for it nor Bluetooth on my laptop.
    I'll investigate Bluetooth cards for the laptop vs. phone usb cables. The next computer I buy will have Bluetooth but having the USB cable might be useful for the future.

    I suppose I could sign up for Cingular wireless email. But that seems lame when I'm not allowed to choose the provider. Think I'll just get a bluetooth USB adapter, as silly as they be.

I picked up a USB bluetooth dongle at best buy for like 40 bucks last fall. It basically does everything I need it to as far as interacting with my phone and is about the size of a pencap.

Opps, that was me.

PS - A universal dongle is hep because it lets you access a number of different devices, not just your phone.

Universal dongle? Shouldn't Bluetooth be Bluetooth, phone, laptop or otherwise?

I wish there were Bluetooth pcmcia cards. I really don't like the idea of having a protuberence on my laptop, let alone giving up one of my two USB ports.

Bluetooth is bluetooth. It's universal insofar as it's a usb connector and can plug into anythin. And there are pcmcia cards, though they tend to have little pokey bits on them as far as I've seen.

This is cool: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/bluetooth.htm

That is really nifty. I especially the the seizure inducing graphicM. of the piconet signals.

I infact suffer daily seizurse as a result of my supernatural ability to actually see piconet signals.

Your supernatural abilities suck. You should get a refund, or exchange for super strength or super prehensile toes - something useful.

It's true. My superability to find wifi connections with binoculars doesn't come up too often in day to day life. However, when needed, it's always a lifesaver. The problem is that my costume is bulky, what with having a laptop on it Now what I need, is the ability to control piconet signals with my mind. That would be useful.

What phone did you get?
abmann From: abmann Date: February 22nd, 2006 08:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
Siemens S66 It seems pretty decent considering I paid zero dollars for it. :)

Free you say?

Now, you are aware that the razer comes in pink and blue?
abmann From: abmann Date: February 22nd, 2006 08:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
I tried 6 times to buy a razr but each time I tried the authorization of my account failed. It worked the first try with the S66. God didn't want my phone to be sleek and stylish.

God didn't want your phone to be retarded looking and breakable like whoa. that's the real answer. I hate the razer sooooo much.

But it can CUT fake 3D lettering IN HALF.
