Hooray! I have an iPod Touch now!
And by Touch I man iPhone with a broken EDGE network. Seems AT&T is broken in Madison, if not the state. Fun!

medeine and antarcticlust: Photos are going to the printer today. They should be ready this weekend. We can meet for an exchange Sunday or later in the week.

Re: Contest I posted last night. I think I will go for representational rather than "more likely to succeed." Integrity good.

Hooray for dinner with nifty person tonight!


Current Mood: blah blah

Yaaay!
That makes me like you more.

(The photography thing... not the iPhone touch.)

You just wait. I'll lose and cast aside all integrity and start listening to nathan_lounge's photography advice.

Oooh, I didn't get to see his advice. I'll go back and check. Sometimes he's all "I'm a pragmatist" and I wonder how that influences his advice.
I think I'd like you -less- if you were way more like him, though... then I'd be all "You, ABM, are a copycat."

He pretty much wants me to do porn.

I don't want you to "do porn". I want you to fully appreciate all forms of tasteful women-on-gofer photography.

Can I have your broken iphone now? I don't even have one ipod thingy and you have like twenty.

But I NEED all my technology.

Buy yourself one of those new-fangled 3G iPhones. it's $200 less than what I paid for my now obsolete and slower iPhone. hooray!
nathan_lounge From: nathan_lounge Date: June 11th, 2008 07:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
Why don't *you* buy yourself one of those new fangled things and give me your old things? I try not to buy new stuff when i can help it.

Did AT&T finally set the iPhone for 3G data? Like they should have when it came out a year ago?
abmann From: abmann Date: June 11th, 2008 01:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
1: Apple built the iPhone.
2: American carries are very slow to adopt new technology and only a few use 3G.
3: Yes, the iPhone 3G was announced on Monday but doesn't ship until July 11th.
4: It is possible they flipped some switch and it blew up.

I expect that when they make the switch, they won't be able to handle the influx of activity. Many, many people will buy 3G iPhones because of how fast it is. AT&T is likely expecting only a minor increase in activity rather than what they will likely see. however, that shouldn't happen until July.

Yeah, Apple built the iPhone, but I'm talking about AT&T. Their execution of the product was very sloppy. Considering I worked with an abmann impersonator boss who worked telecom that was a major iEnthusiast, I also heard aaaaall the great things about the iPhone that were not implemented. As you can tell, he was a significant host to my own skepticism of all things i-prefixed.

Are you printing up that 5x7 I wanted too? :)
abmann From: abmann Date: June 11th, 2008 02:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ah, no. I didn't export that one in my various craziness last night.
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: June 11th, 2008 02:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
:( Ok. Next time then.
abmann From: abmann Date: June 11th, 2008 02:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
I need to make a second run tomorrow to drop an other 5x7 off for medeine so I can do it then.

Yay!!

Not to rub it in ... but my Blackberry via ATT edge did not have any problems (though admittedly I don't live in Madison either (anymore)). On the other hand: Look at the upside - in case you can't make calls you at least still can listen to Music.

abmann From: abmann Date: June 11th, 2008 02:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
I also take comfort in still being able to use the internet, check my email and generally be awesome.
hubersbernd From: hubersbernd Date: June 11th, 2008 02:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
That reminds me-i have not lookked into it other than on BB, but does iphone support SIP or does it block that as well?

abmann From: abmann Date: June 11th, 2008 04:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
No idea. You can probably hack it to do that.
antarcticlust From: antarcticlust Date: June 11th, 2008 04:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
My deep annoyance with ATT (especially their awful wireless) and my loyalty to Verizon (my only positive customer service experience with a utility in ten years) has me so frustrated with the iPhone. The second they expand to Verizon, if ever, I'm on board.

Yay for an exchange! I'm hoping to go to the Farmer's Market - will you be attending?
abmann From: abmann Date: June 11th, 2008 04:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'll be in Chicago Saturday for a wedding. I should be back Sunday at some point in the early afternoon.
antarcticlust From: antarcticlust Date: June 11th, 2008 04:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
Gotcha. I should be at Lakeside Fibers for much of the day, given the poor weather. I'll e-mail you my cell #.

Yay, you decided to do what I recommended before I even recommended it. I think that's the right choice.
