The Real Entry Begins:
I got to mess with a co-workers iPhone the other night. I played around with it for about an hour. The phone, ipod, and voicemail features are all really great. The Internet portion...annoyed the crap out of me.
The main part of “surfing the net” that was so horrible on the iPhone was typing in websites. The keyboard was absolutely annoying. The keys are too small, and because it is electronic, there is no feed back or feel to let you know the letter has been pressed. This causes the typing to be much slower than even T9 text on a standard keypad.
The iPhone needs to have a real keyboard.
The Internet was frustrating too. It is definitely not “the full Internet” if you can’t see all the pictures and videos on my little site. I know that the You Tube thing is still in progress, but to call it the full Internet is not accurate.
I was also able to cause Google to route me to my site as if I was using a regular phone. All I got was text. I’m not sure why that happened but I had to go to the address bar to type in the address to my blog, instead of being able to navigate to it from another site.
The iPhone needs to have the complete Internet.
Finally, the iPhone needs 3G, or faster. I was sooooooo annoyed with the Edge network. I guess Steve Jobs had some stupid reason to use the Edge tech but it was (like I said) stupid. Why couldn’t they offer both? Are there no longer phones that can jump from one band to the next? What happened to quad-band phones? What about a phone that works on every band a particular company owns?
I know that it will work on a WiFi network but I don’t often run into those networks here at work on driving in my car or shopping with my wife. And if I do find one, half the time I have to pay for it. (Side note: Starbucks is pretty mean to not have free WiFi.)
The iPhone needs to be on the 3G network.
#1. The iPhone needs to cut and paste. (see pervious entry)
#2. The iPhone needs to have a real keyboard.
#3. The iPhone needs to have the complete Internet.
#4. The iPhone needs to be on the 3G network.

This stuff is no good. There is a familiar orange taste (Live Wire, ummm) but then you taste the Cherry flavored NyQuil they must use to give it the "Cherry" flavor. Why does it have to taste like medicine? Don't they know we all hate medicine? Of course now I'm thinking about "Code 3" and realizing I haven't had any for about 5 years. Maybe I gave it up because it had the same problem..
So the verdict "Halo 3 Mt. Dew" is more like "Mt. Poo!"
The original Mountain Dew is still the king of beverages and The Nectar of Life. Good stuff. Go try it at Taco Tree in Auburn to realize the life giving properties the original Mt. Dew has. Also, try a Pepsi, Combo burrito, taco, nachos, and anything else on the menu at Taco Tree.

The first thing I’d do if I had extra money just sitting around would be to give Apple Inc. $6,000.00. Here’s why:
First, I’d buy the amazing iPhone.
Of course, I’d buy the 8GB model because that’s the top model out. I would want all the room possible for my music. iPhone costs $599.00.
The second item I’d have delivered under my 6k donation to Apple Inc. would be the MacBook Pro.
MacBook Pro costs $2,848.00.
The third item that would arrive at my home would be the AirPort Extreme. This is the greatest router I’ve seen. It includes a USB slot for an external hard drive or printer, allowing network accessibility to the device. AirPort Extreme cost $179.00.
My forth Apple Inc. product would be the new iMac.
I’d go with the 20” screen upgraded with the 500GB HD and 2GB of ram. Again, there are better, larger screens but within my dream world, these are the items that are realistic purchases for me. iMac costs $1,918.00.
The fifth item, and final on this list, would be the 160GB Apple TV.
This would accompany the purchase of a new HD TV from Sony, allowing me to watch videos, see pictures, and listen to music from iTunes on all my Apple computers. Apple TV costs $399.00.
These are just some of the really great products that Steve Jobs and the gang are bringing to the world of computers. And the included pictures show you how beautifully Apple, Inc. is packaging their products. They are truly a unique company and they seem to be light years ahead of anyone else.
