Coolest iPhone APP EVER!!! - MUST SEE!

Wonder Woman Make overr

So I'm watching Diane Sawer on ABC Network news cast, and a story caught my add.   DC comics has decided to change her look after 69 years.  She has always had a veriation of Boots and a skirt/hot pants.  She now wears black tights, black boots and a motor cycle jacket.  Noooooooo!  This totally spoils the boyhood fantasy of Linda Carter.  What is she a biker chic now?  It took me a minute to figure out how she flys now.  That I could accept.  Why is in all black now.  Change the costume.  Most characters go through a change.   But back in black will take some getting use to.

Call dropps

With all the big deal made at the apple launch conference there is a problem with the new Iphone.   So apple tried to fix the problem with all this high tech design and the phone drops calls if you hold it the wrong way.  I'm glad I wanted to wait on the new Adroid device.   This will make people jailbrake the phone and take it somewhere else.  Just my opinion.

Which hand do you hold the new iphone in?

Twitter 4 TMO

Twitter has been giving clues for the new Adroid Powerhouse heading to T-Mobile.   I hope it is worth the hype. I want the guy that I spoke with at the shack(Radio Shack), to be right.  I want the new phone to be an updated Nexus phone.  All that can be done at this time is to wait.

From Endgadget Take that Facetime

Cellular Network Changes

Well just when I thought that I would have to move to Sprint I recieved good news from a rep at the Shack.  He told me that the rumored device is comming to the shack (Radio Shack) in July.                                                   I spoke with a rep at the Shack (Radio Shack) He told me the rumored device is cumming to the shack in July.  He advised he could not confirm specs.  The device should be a merge of the HD2/EVO.  The windows mobile will be discontinued.  It will have the latest version of Android 2.2 pre installed and could not confirm price.  If you wanted the EVO but are frustrated by TMO this is the one you've been waiting for.    I also found out that GSM sim card based tech is no longer the world standard.   It is called utms but the future standard is LTE which Verizon is the first carrier to make the upgrade comming in the next year.  He told me the HSPA + that T-Mobile is using will be better and faster than Wimax.  I have been waiting for a sign to make a decision and I think this is it.

New on Endgadget

Samsung's 7-inch Tab has certainly captured everyone's attention as another possible anti-iPad tablet. So far, Samsung's only saying that its Galaxy Tab will launch in Q3 without providing much in the way of detail other than this picture tweeted (and then pulled) by a Samsung's official Twitter account in South Africa. Since then we've seen rumored specs that include Android 2.2, a 7-inch Super AMOLED display, 1.2GHz A8 processor, 4,000mAH battery, 370-gram weight, and 16GB of on-board memory with up to 32GB of microSD expansion.

Today we've received an anonymous tip with even more info. After a series of communications with this person, we're confident enough to at least pass along what was said. Mind you, we're still classifying it as rumor until we see further evidence. First off, our source claims to have spent time with the same four-button device we saw in the video yesterday. The "sturdy and well-built" tablet was "very thin," described as about the same thickness as an iPhone. Our source says that the P1000 model is correct and that it will indeed feature "full phone functionality" albeit without a dedicated earpiece on the bezel -- for audio, you'll have to rely on a Bluetooth headset or the P1000's speaker. Thank gawd... the last thing we want to see if someone screaming into a 7-inch tablet held to the side of their head. There's a front-facing camera for video calling and a 3.2 megapixel camera around back for shooting pictures and video. Granted, 3.2 megapixels seems suspiciously low for the notoriously pixel greedy Samsung. Besides Bluetooth, we're told that the Galaxy Tab will also feature WiFi and 3G data, a standard SIM slot, and can tether over USB or WiFi. Oh, and the battery can't be removed and the version our source used had a 6x4 icon layout and appeared to be running stock Android 2.2 Froyo. Interesting, eh?

P.S. GPS too.

Smart Phone Fence

I went into the T-Mobile store at the mall to check on the special free phone sale.  I found out that this applies to adding a line or family plan.   I am leaning towards getting a unlocked Iphone from Canada or get the EVO 4G from Sprint.     I spoke to a Clear Mobile rep who told me that there will be a version of the EVO comming to Clear mobile in August or September.   This would be an option with no contract.   At this point I will just wait and see what happens over the next 30 dys.....

The 19th

The tech blogs are all ablaze about the T-Mobile stores opening 2 hrs. early on the the 19th later this month.  I don't know what the special promotion will be.  Some are still saying that they think it will be the new iPhone.
  Maybe it will be the ipad.  It is very interesting to guess what it will be.  I for one will be holding off any smart phone purchase until this date has passed.  I think there will be a clue after Steve Jobs gives his address to the developers conference.

BP Oil Spill

We are now closing in on two months on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.   I wonder if this will be the catalyst that will shift the American public to consider alternative fuel vehicles.  My wish is this turns into the push to get
people to consider plug in vehicles off all types.

AT&T Data plans

AT&T announced today that they will no longer offer unlimited data plan to new customers. They will charge $25.00 dollars for 2Gigs then $10.00 for each additional gig. I wonder if the early store opening for T-Mobile is related. This does limit the apple product for High data users. The limits from the past have cased the trend of people jail-braking the Iphone and using it on other networks.

EV verision of Equinox

I discoverd that Chevy has mad a EV version of the Equinox.  Very cool.  This would be an option for those
who want to go electric but don't want a small car.  Here is the video:

Something for guys to catch up..

They have a device called the real touch.  It is a mechanical device that a guy can use for pleasure.  It plugs
into the computer and when watching specially coded videos, the device will mimic what is viewed on screen.  Wow.  Now guys have something to compete with the toys the ladies have had forever.  What will women do
 when the guys have something that they can not compete with.  Now the shoe is on the other foot.  This does
change everything....
