Apple listens to Robby and releases an iPhone

Well, they must be listening to me.

A few months ago, I posted that I was looking to switch mobile services. Well, I switched over to Cingular after a lot of back and forth and have been fairly happy with their service. I opted to get their lowend/entry phone as I wanted to get a nicer phone when I found something that met my requirements.

I wanted…

  • wifi
  • bluetooth
  • ssh client
  • lightweight web browsing
  • scheduling that sync’d well with ical

Well, I hadn’t found anything that really caught my attention. So, I heard rumors about Apple releasing a phone in January. So… I waited.

“Yay Apple! I think I’m in the right office, we’re all sitting here reading the keynote updates.”—Audrey

So, how much is this going to cost us? ..a few of us here came up with our predictions.

Thank you, Apple!

...well… I would have given Apple a hug if I didn’t have to wait til June.

...back to work.

Laptop back with more disk space

Last week, I killed my laptop (sorta) with the magnet that comes from the Apple iSight. I found it amusing to find that within a few days, a google of isight magnet currently returns my recent post, iSight magnet is teh suck. It’s nice to know that I’m not the only nitwit in the world that has accidently done this. Hopefully… people will learn from my mistake. Spread the word (digg)

I ended up sending my laptop to a company down in California called, TechRestore. They were unable to talk to the harddrive and installed a new 120gb one in my powerbook and sent it back within just a few days. I shipped it on Monday and got it back on Friday morning. If you need a harddrive upgrade and don’t want to attempt to open it the powerbook yourself.. these guys gave me good service.

When my laptop returned, I had a brand new Dell 20” widescreen monitor waiting on my desk to connect to it. :-)
