Corte Madera Chronicles

A group blog; a place to share photos, thoughts, stupid shit we find on the internet, whatever. Hopefully we'll get at least one post per day from someone, and not so many posts that it's too overwhelming. Have fun!

bragging rights

With my new phone, I have unlimited broadband internet wherever I go, all day long -- for $15 a month on top of the regular cellphone service.

It also has built-in Wifi as a backup (or if there happens to be an even faster WiFi connection around). Regardless, I can surf the internet and go to any web site (not just those optimized for phones).

I can read and edit Word and Excel documents, using a slideout QWERTY keyboard. The phone also has a stylus and a mini-joystick.

It has a 1.3 megapixel camera that also shoots video with sound.

With my phone, from anywhere, I can access all of the iTunes music stored on my computer at home and listen to it. Holy shit.

In theory (though I don't have this set up because I don't, you know, watch TV), I could hook up my computer to my Tivo and access it at any time from anywhere through the phone and watch live TV or anything recorded through Tivo, on the fucking phone.

I'm pretty sure I'll be able to watch Giants games live on my phone from anywhere.

The future is now.

(For the record, it's a Sprint PPC 6700. I can't tell who the manufacturer is... maybe Dell.)

Bragging rights? So now you can say "I'm the biggest nerd of all"?
