I’ve experienced many of these myself, not to mention the repeated doubling of all my contacts (which I fixed today but I expect to return by tonight). But I’m such an asshole: I still love the thing.

merlin: Monkeys in space - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Thirty-two monkeys flew in the space program; each had only one mission. Numerous back-up monkeys also went through the programs but never flew. Monkeys from several species were used, including rhesus monkeys, cynomolgus monkeys, and squirrel monkeys, as well as pig-tailed macaques. You really have to feel for all the “back-up...

Still waiting for the nationwide rollout of what was active last year in Sonoma, of all places: the ability to identify and immediately download the song currently playing while you’re waiting for your coffee. As you can tell from the story, this feature has had a lot of false starts.

… we’re starting to hear more about what new users think. My biggest complaint: battery life. I’ve taken a fully charged phone into editing for the last two days. I admit I’m leaving everything on - 3G, WiFi, GPRS - but with only two or three actual calls, and what I consider a moderate amount of dicking around on the web, I’ve run out of juice both days....

I'm liking my 3G
As is becoming my pattern, I got the phone on Saturday, the day after the launch. I went for white, and bought a case just because I need a case until the kind of case I want comes out and I can buy THAT case. Know what I’m talking about? The ATT store had maybe 25, but I was number eight in line by virtue of getting there at 7AM for a supposed 8AM opening. Which turned out to be 9AM. At...

I cruised by four ATT stores and an Apple store this morning at nine. The lines did not look good, especially at the Apple store. An ATT employee told me that Apple had a LOT more phones in store than did ATT - but the Apple line was around the block and out of sight. Frankly, I can wait until tomorrow.
.Mac is down
You know what that means: MobileMe is almost here, along with the iPhone App Store. The iTunes update was pushed out last night.

Putting VC capital to use. All I want is for them to fucking stay on-line. This “I’m tired and need to put my feet up” routine is wearing thin.

Good theories here, back up by initial numbers. It’s going to be an interesting trend to follow. I like evolution. Change is good. The landscape that is my business is slow to react, but can’t help but alter its methods eventually. I’m interested to see how that manifests.
