My New HTC Tilt phone

Is an ATT phone and it will have flash, streaming radio, instant messaging, a 3 megapixel camera, 3g/wifi/bluetooth, outlook email GPS, a keyboard, a terminal and tethering. All the requirements for my next phone. Here is a good review. It is normally $599 but amazon has them on sale for $174. You have to love the new customer deals.

Someone had told me that ATT didn't have 3G in buffalo. I guess that was wrong because according to their coverage maps it does.

image

I freakin can't wait till it comes and I can use the GPS so I stop getting lost on the way to and from work.

(e:terry) and (e:matthew) got sony ericson walkman phones. We will see how that goes.

Apple sniffing your stocks?

I was reading this article about apple sending back your IMEI (phone ID number) with info requests when using the stocks and weather application on the iphone.
image

All I can say is wow. I can understand way they would want to track data but it seems like the stock data in particular could be a serious problem. Well, at least a seriously unfair advantage for apple when investing. If you combine that data somewhere you could easily mine important stock information. If you combined it with real name data, which they have, now that you are no longer allowed to buy an iphone with cash anyways and because ATT (spies) have all your data anyways, it seems like they could create a system that would help them identify hot stocks to buy and sell.

When you are using a wifi connection instead of the ATT connection there would normally be no identifying info for apple, except that they send the IMEI along.

<sarcasm>Luckily, it is not a business phone so the real wallstreet analyst types probably do not have one.</sarcasm> It's totally sketchy. Apple is really not what I once thought they were. Although I like the hardware, I am beginning to see that the company is essentially not much better than microosft.

The amazon kindle

The Amazon Kindle is seriously a revolutionary device. I hope that it takes off and changes the way people read. Imagine all the paper it could save and how many trees.

I am fascinated by the fact that Amazon chose to go with free EVDO cell phone network in order to deliver the data to the device instead of wifi. Could this signal the beginning of the end of wifi. No monthy fees. I still can't get over that. It also has constant access to wikipedia.org and battery life is a whopping 30 hours of reading time and only 2 hours to charge thanks to the energy saving e-ink technology.

Too bad it costs $400 and I already bought an OLPC ;( Well thankfully, the children in africa will get something for my purchase where as Amazon would only get richer if I bought a kindle.

On another note I bought the AT&T tilt, so I have two more years of windows mobile 6 unless Android comes out before then and supports exchange server.

My soon to be, new phone

I think I found a replacement for my current phone. Finally, a 3G phne with gps. Too bad ATT doesn't have 3G here in Buffalo yet. At least the phone will be ready when it arrives and with ATT I can use multiple phones and just port my SIM card around. My nokia 7710 will once again have life.

It has a 500Mhz processor, tethers via bluetooth, has windows mobile 6 (for work stuff), 3G, GPS, 3MP camera, keyboard, video chat, instant messaging, push email with outlook sync. I also imagine it should be ready to run the new google OS android once it is officially out. My only complaints are flash player 7 (that's adobe's fault) and the fact that it does not have a standard headphone connector.

It is normally $599 but as a new ATT customer I can get it for $179 on amazon

You have to love cell phone subsidies. Poor iphone users who actually had to pay face value for their phones. Not only is it only $179 but you can choose two additional phones for 1 cent each on the family plan. The phones on that list are pretty good too, so (e:terry) and (e:matthew) will be happy.

Fairies In The Garden

I was randomly searching for gay on ebay and then sorting by most expensive to try and find some crazy gift for (e:matthew) when I came across these fairies I kind of thought there would be more gay "antiques" of some sort.

It seems like this woman makes them by hand and can even do requests for likenesses. I admit, it is a little creepy but they are quite well crafted and totally original.

image

image

They make girl ones too.

Gowanda Psychiatric Center Cemetery

Last Monday, (e:matthew), (e:terry) and I went to Zoar valley to climb down and back up point peter. It is so fun climbing down it. I really miss climbing bigger things out west. On the way there we saw the sign for the Gowanda Psychiatric Center cemetery.

image

All the graves are just labeled with numbers and according to the website (e:matthew) was reading they lost all the records associating the names with the numbers back when the hospital was taken over by the correctional facility.

Here are some random links for it

Korea House, Laughlins and Ruh Franklin

Korea House
Went back (e:paul,32617) to Korea House today for some yummy lunch. I really think Korean food is superior to other asian foods. Accept for maybe Japanese Sushi.

We orded Bulgogi (WIKIPEDIA - Bulgogi) which comes with a million side dishes that you mix with rice, roll in lettuce leaves and eat. It is so super yummy but a little steep at $22.00. Seriously, it is enough for three people though. So maybe not steep but, considering we ordered it as an appetizer, it was a little steep.

I wish I had my real camera
image

image

We also all ordered a meal each which turned out to be way too much food.

When I ordered the clam soup the Korean lady, who was the friendlist , most matronly waitress ever, asked me if I was sure I liked soup. I was totally confused. I mean you think she would have asked if I was sure I liked clams.

It was so good. It has squid, clams, mussels, octopus, fish cakes, and scallops in it. Eating it was like fishing. I am sure that I like octopus the best now that I got to taste them all at the same time, although each part was delicious.
image

image

Laughlins
Has lunch with (e:terry), (e:matthew), and (e:flacidness) at Laughlins the other day.

image
My sandwich was so good and the prices are reasonable. I had the steak and Dandelion sandwich. I think it was around $12 but there have much cheaper sandwiches too. It is located at the corner of Franklin and Edward.
image

The decor is amazing. Once again, I wish I had my real camera with me.
image

On the way home I saw the menu for Ruh Franklin. I am definitely sure to go there sometime soon. Maybe for my birthday.

Some random facts...

I am still so sad over the gay boys that got killed in Iran for being gay

image

I think that is what their president meant when he said they had no gay people in Iran.

From wikipedia - Sodomy is a crime for which both partners can be punished by death, if the participants are adults, of sound mind and consenting; the method of execution is for the Shari'a judge to decide. A non-adult who engages in consensual sodomy is subject to a punishment of 74 lashes. (Articles 108 to 113) Sodomy is proved either if a person confesses four times to having committed sodomy or by the testimony of four righteous men. Testimony of women alone or together with a man does not prove sodomy. (Articles 114 to 119). "Tafhiz" (the rubbing of the thighs or buttocks) and the like committed by two men is punished by 100 lashes. On the fourth occasion, the punishment is death. (Articles 121 and 122).

If two men "stand naked under one cover without any necessity", both are punished with up to 99 lashes; if a man "kisses another with lust" the punishment is 60 lashes. (Articles 123 and 124). If sodomy, or the lesser crimes referred to above, are proved by confession, and the person concerned repents, the Shari'a judge may request that he be pardoned. If a person who has committed the lesser crimes referred to above repents before the giving of testimony by the witnesses, the punishment is quashed. (Articles 125 and 126).

As of 2007, teenagers accused of engaging in sodomy have been executed, although the official rationale for the hangings is debated.



I feel so bad for this lard ass. I mean really, their picture shows up in every single google news article about obesity. I wonder if he/she is on an obesity clipart CDROM somewhere. Has anyone else noticed this?

image

I was talking with (e:libertad) the other day and telling him this usb vaccuum I wanted for my vaccuum collection.
image

They dug up king Tut and unwrapped him. He has buck teeth. I am not sure exactly why someone would not just leave him alone. Isn't the whole point of being a mummy to be mummified and left alone. I kind of feel and for him too.

This is a new mp3 player for dogs . (e:jim) and (e:james) - you guys totally need ot get this for ben, although maybe it is too prissy for him.

Having Sex With How Many People?

(e:lilho)'s friend had sex with 45 people and he is 37 and asked me if that was normal. She is posting her list too. Feel free to join in. So I tried to think of all the people I had sex with. And seriously, I thought I had sex with a lot of people but I guess when I really counted, 14 over 15 years is not that crazy.

This is actual I put it in there, not just touching naughty parts because that is such a different list that I am not getting into. I feels great that none of these people are secrets or anything.

1990s
teens
Girl - D
Girl - E
Girl - J
Girl - H
Guy - G

twenties
Guy - C
Guy - M
Girl - S
Guy - J
Guy - Terry
Girl - E

2000s
Guy - (only random) Redhead, I have a thing for redheads and jumped at the chance.

late twenties
Guy - Matt
Girl - T

Well that is my life sex story. Now there are only two regular players in the story.

Monday night

I am getting so sick of working on the new server - DNS, php, apache, mysql, email all set. Next I am gogin tot move the new site over from my dev machine.

At least I have techno4ever

This is what I look like programming, I guess everyone else has probably seen it but it was new for me.



I really wish I could move back to Germany sometimes. I miss living in europe. Today I looked at the Italian Citizenship site again and I really just need to go to New York to deal with it. I think maybe in January? I just need to drag my mother and brother with me.

Don't worry, I am not going anywhere. I just want to have it all together so I can ditch this country when the chinese come and claim it.
