So October…..a little chilly so far, but that is to be expected. It looks like this weekend’s weather is going to be great though! I am with the CW kiddies for a X-Country meet on Friday and it will be perfect running conditions. I do like sweater weather, but I am not a fan of rainy days.
I worked Monday and Tuesday this week. Today it is appearing to be a slow day. But it is just 8am and last week a majority of the jobs that came up were not posted until mid-morning, so there is always a chance. Otherwise I have to head to Kanata to help out with the Robots kick-off BBQ and then to orchestra. Other than the sad bank account, I do not really care today.
So….iPhone 5?? Didn’t happen. Needless to say I am pretty disappointed. The 4GS is not enough of an improvement to justify the almost $300 expense of buying that phone (with a 3 year contract). I do not play super powerful games on my devices (I play scrabble and solitaire mostly) and the whole Siri thing does not appeal to me. I know of many people who were waiting for the iPhone 5 to make the jump from their previous phones (myself and Paul included). Paul has an ancient Palm Treo which is a stupidphone rather than a smart phone. I have a blackberry that I just do not like anymore. The battery life sucks, I hate the calendar function and the screen is way too small to browse the net. Paul seems fixated on the blackberry phones, but I am trying to advise him to probably go Android on his phone. For me, I think I am going to get the iPhone 4….save my money and wait for iPhone 5 or 6. Since I have the iPad, I really just need a better smart phone than the stupidberry. I try my electronics very well, so I am thinking the iPhone 4 will last me at least 2 years (which is essentially my breaking point in switching). I hate 3 year contracts, but what can you do?
Another big reason for me to switch now is I really can’t afford to pay for data for both my iPad and a phone. I do not use that much data (hello wireless everywhere!) and since I will be off work for a year, I won’t be using my 3G as much in school. Because wireless is pretty much everywhere I go, I really only use data in school (where the wireless is non-existent). So…solution = data sharing! If I need more data when I go back, I will get more data.
2 months to go…..and I think by mid-November I will want this baby out 🙂 You never really realize how much extra weight really effects you until you have 15 extra pounds on your front section.
