Matthew's phone - Matthew's Journal

This screen is what sold it for me. Frankly, I am a bit jealous.

Fur on Metal

I am even more jealous of this HTC inspire 4g. The camera seems pretty amazing. The only downside is that it does not have the front facing camera.

The keyboard text selection on it better than on the gingerbread. At least the gingerbread I have have.

Gingerbread is Pretty Fun

I couldn't wait any longer for the Nexus One to get gingerbread. For like a year I used Cyanoygen mod 6 on my nexus one but then I unrooted and reverted everything back to the standard android ROM around thanksgiving 2010 in anticipation of gingerbread coming out. Needless to say, it never came.

image

Tonight, I moved on to cyanogen 7 with gingerbread. I have no idea what standard gingerbread has because the cyanogen mods always have so much more. However, one thing I think is in both is the cursor when typing. This is great. It was one thing the android OS was really missing. Especially in devices like my Nook where I didn't have a trackball.
image

Another interesting thing is that it enabled the fabled FM radio chip in the phone making it possible to once again listen to FM radio on the go. I like this feature and missed it since giving up my nokia devices which had it. I don't understand why google didn't enable this by default if the chip was in there the whole time.
image

I am sure there are a bunch of other changes that I haven't discovered yet.

National Holidays and the end of the civil war

In reference to the holiday comments on (e:heidi,53668).

My union celebrates the following holidays.

1. New Year's Day
2. Lincoln's Birthday
3. Washington's Birthday
4. Memorial Day
5. Independence Day
6. Labor Day
7. Columbus Day
8. Veterans' Day
9. Thanksgiving Day
10. Christmas Day
11. Election Day
12. Martin Luther King Day

I know, why do we still celebrate both Lincoln and Washingston's birthday in the same month when everyone else had moved onto Presidents day, if that. I really wish they would drop Christmas and replace it with a non-religious holiday. Its not like there are not float holidays, personal days and vacation time people could use to cover there religious holidays. Then the union would not look biased toward christians.

I guess this was the first time I really considered, "What is a national holiday?" One thing that seems to be a glaring oversight is the lack of an end of the civil war/ US reunification day to celebrate the end of the civil war.

According to wikipedia, the last shot was fired April 9th, 1865. Maybe this year I will use one of my float holidays and celebrate that instead. I also read the president of the confederacy was captured May 10, 1865. You think I would know seeing as I did a whole 4th grade presentation on Jefferson Davis, lol. Man that was so long ago.

Speaking of so long ago, I realized the other day that it has been more time since I was 17, than the time from birth to 17.

Church of the Asenscion Plow Damage

Now that the snow is melting and the giant pickup truck is still plowing the freakin sidewalk - it is a disaster.

Is the convenience of not shoveling worth dealing with the amount of damage they will need to repair in the spring.

They already barely had any grass from the tracker/rider lawnmower tear up and their inability to rake leaves.

The ruts and piles are like a foot deep.

Illegally dancing in Utah

I know this was quite a few years back but I seriously can't believe this scenario. Kids having a rave in Utah. In comes 90 army men in helicopters with dogs, tear gas and machine guns.

If this is the kind of response for an "illegal" dance party, imagine how they would react to actual protest against the government.

I wonder if the response would be any different now that everything is so recorded and insta-published to the web. Seriously, just imagine the cost of having 90 army men, helicopters, firearms, tear gas and dogs. I bet it cost tens of thousdands of dollars.

Things I want

Notice there is no computer technology on here. I am so super satisfied with my computing and mobile phone environment right now.

  1. The generation 2 living color bulb from phillips . Too bad they are so freakin expensive. Lumens.com is such a fuckin scam. I have been watching the price of this product like a hawk. Stores seem to charge between $150-$190 dollars for it. They now have this presidents day sale with 50% on Philips lighting in which they jacked the price up to $417 and then took 50% bringing it to $208 - more that the price of it anywhere else.

  1. Tickets to WEMF. Aug 12, 13, 14th - Andy C will be there and so will Keith, Terry and I!! The full lineup is here
image
  1. A vacation somewhere warm. I was kind of thinking New Orleans for Mardi Gras but I am not sure I can handle it. I think I might rather want a relaxing vacation in Florida.
  2. A Bicycle - a functional strong one with back pedal ability

Blueproximity - a taste of the future

This is pretty neat. Once you install bluezproximity on fedora you can set it to listen for the proximity of a specific bluetooth device - say your cellphone - and lock and unlock the screen.

The beats having to type your password over and over again as you run to grab water, a printout, talk with someone, etc. The downside is if you leave you phone at your computer or someone steals your phone they can pretty easily get in.

That being said it translates real well with the concept of ID cards that you scan to get in a building. People can always steal those too.

I am pretty sure that apple and google are already integrating this into their respective products as we speak.

To get it simply, "sudo yum install blueproximity"
