Switching to iPhone – Day 5

Cases & Virtual Keyboarding Spent an hour in a very crowded NYC Apple store looking to nab a case for my WinMo AT&T Tilt replacement, the new 32 GB iPhone 3GS. What I found was a whole lotta not much–some were cool, but many crappy.  And I mean “what were they thinking!” kind of crappy, too. […]

Switching to iPhone – Days 3 & 4

Finally, my first couple of work days using my new iPhone. I must admit that i was a bit worried–my phone/PDA is my life-line to the world of the self-employed. Before we move on, I’d like you to meet my new friend, Toki Tori. More on him after the bump.

Switching to iPhone – Days 1 & 2

Continuing my experience with switching from the Windows Mobile AT&T Tilt to the iPhone 3GS. Looks & UI I have to say that while I was pretty impressed with my new, sleek, shiny little toy, the user interface kind of blew me away. “Dead Simple” doesn’t even begin to describe it. Not having to pull […]

Switching to iPhone

Finally got me an iPhone. I’ve been playing wait-and-see since the 1st gen model came out in ’07, wanting to give it a chance to flop or mature before I dipped my toes into the Apple mobile pond. I’ve always been a fan of Apple, but I was honestly a bit pessimistic about the 1st […]

The Litterbug Dilema

This is an image used in a Seattle litterbug campaign. The enraged dude with the paddle? That’s exactly how I feel when I see people littering–I want to smack spank the living crap out of them. For years I’ve been working up my nerve to ask litterbugs to pick-up their litter and be responsible. However, […]

What’s Your Comfort Food?

Everyone has their comfort food. Ahhhhhh! A special-tummy-warming-get-you-through-the-doldrums kind of food. Mine, I indulgently call The Scott Dog (yes, in capitals, patent pending). It consists of: Hebrew National hot dog Potato hot dog bun Tiny chunks (not melted!) of the sharpest cheddar cheese you can find Finely chopped raw onions Horseradish Spicy brown mustard Variations […]

AT&T – The Least Dropped Calls… NOT!

I’m checking my email. My mobile phone is sitting on the desk next to my elbow. Suddenly, I get a notification that I have a new voice mail message. Did I: Think, “Hmm, that’s funny, it didn’t even ring.” Say, “That durn AT&T. It would be helpful if they sure got their stuff together.” Quip, […]

Being Thankful…2008

I have a quite a lot to be thankful for this year. Five years ago, I really couldn’t have imagined my life, today. And I’m not talking about my career or my Wii Sports tennis ranking (which is pretty low, I might add). No, I mean in life…L-I-F-E. Where is that exactly? Well, let’s see… […]

Are You a “Looser”?

As a kid, I read quite a bit and had a decent vocabulary for a brat my age. However, I was a poor speller–eliminated from the 4th grade spelling bee on the word “chihuahua.” Regardless of the fact I couldn’t tell the difference between a chihuahua and a chimichanga, I still was a poor speller. […]
