Well I signed up for the Digital Photo Days seminar. I decided to go to the one in Denver Colorado. one reason is because it falls on my birthday and I thought I treat myself to a decent vaca this year and second I need to waste my vaca days. my bro will be house sitting with my boy’s(dogs). so I will have the time to myself. I will be driving out and have arranged to stay in a one room condo in Vail Colorado. its about an hour west of Denver but I rather stay up in the mountains and have some cool photo opps then stay in town plus I spend the same doing it but with a better room and view. the place ill be is the antlers of Vail. a big ski resort and I’m going at the right time just before winter so ill get 35% of my room. hell that will save me almost a grand in room fees. I have been scouting the area on Google earth and have seen some neat places I have to go to. I will be racing up there on the expressways to get more time there but on the way home ill have 3 days to get home and will be taking mostly back roads to see more of the country. highways are great if your in a hurry but to see the country you have to slow down and take the back roads and enjoy the sights. ill update when I’m out there so stay tune for more.
Well here we are again. I finally splurged and upgraded my phone. I went with the new Pre’ from sprint. Love the phone so far. Have to get it used to it but so far love how it works. Downside is that I had to upgrade t data package for everything to work. But hey so far it’s worth it.
Love the compact size and the keyboard is not too bad. I had the rumor first time around but I wanted something with more computer power… I did have some problems setting it up for contacts. I wanted to use yahoo for most of my contacts were from there but contacts don’t play well with yahoo. After the sprint store set up my phone with contacts I then went and set up Google. I couldn’t get it to share. So after getting some uumm programs ? I uumm hack it and still couldn’t get it to sync correctly. I dumped my contacts and had to go back to sprint to have them reinstall it.
What you want to do is make sure you set up your Google Gmail account first. Then set Google Gmail for default contacts then everything will sync correctly. Other than that little contacts mishap I had no problems yet. Or major problems. Now and then when you hook up to the power block it keeps beeping that it’s done charging. Just make sure it’s on the base even and solid and it works fine.
I won’t go into details of how to hack the phone but since the phone uses a basic Linux os, all you have to do is root your phone and if you know programming the sky’s the limit. Check out sites for WebOs and they will take you thru it better than I can. With the ease of use and with more apps coming out the Pre’ will start to chip away at the iphone. Never had the iphone but always thought it was more of hype then its worth. Since I got my phone for under $200 I get it at a great price. Phone is small and compact, bought a holder from a website for $1.50 and it’s the best holder I ever had. Clips to belt rotate and unholster phone with one hand to answer with no problems.
Screen on the phone is very nice, have a pick of Megan Fox on front screen and wow just want to cum for here ? hehehe. Phone calls are nice and clear. Phone ringer’s defaults are low but I have put an mp3 song as a ringer and it nice and loud for my place of work to hear. I still can’t get the on screen keyboard to work. That would be great to be able to type on screen without having to open the keyboard up. Have some cool games like rabbit hunt. Nice and fun game. Vids are nice and clear.
So I rate the Pre’ phone 8.5 out of 10 only because its first productions and a lot more tweaks still need to be done. More apps need to be released. But other than that as a phone it’s great.
