Another video review of the HP 910, this time from Gottabemobile.com:

Had a rough night last night with no more than a 3 hour stretch of sleep- between the baby having a sleepless night, and some dolt sending a fax to our home phone it was pretty awful. I checked in this morning on the hp.com and the 910 is not available for purchase yet. Well, I'm off to have a nap now...feeling exhausted and really disappointed in HP.

I absolutely love CNET and all things related, and one thing that I really enjoy on a daily basis are the podcasts. I also like their CNET TV, and I wish that they would build a mobile CNET-TV app that would play the same content and let you choose videos to watch. I know MobiTV has a CNET channel, but to me its just not worth the $10 monthly subscription to watch a streaming station (granted, they also have other channels, but I really have no interest in them).
Is this something that could be built? Is it something that CNET would ever consider? I sure hope so- and I know it would be a nice revenue source if they ever put it together!

Wow. Have I really been married for 3 years already? Here's a gift from my husband...a stunning watch to replace my old one. Sorry for the crappy image (thanks, Ubiquio).
As I reminsced about my married life, I stumbled on my blog entry that journaled our 'wedding-moon' in the summer of 2005. For those of who weren't reading Mobigasmic back then, here's a link. Those were the days!
Have you ever wondered how much more resources Windows Mobile 6 uses versus its predecessor Windows Mobile 5? Before I upgraded my Treo 750 to WM6, I jotted down the memory information and then compared it to after. Today I stumbled upon the sheet where I made the notes:
Windows Mobile 5 Windows Mobile 6
Total 65.81MB 57.82MB
Used 2.42MB 14.62MB
Free 63.40MB 43.20MB
Total 49.10MB 48.67MB
Used 16.18MB 22.27MB
Free 32.92MB 26.40MB

I've always had a curiousity about the darker professions- strippers, hookers, et al. Its not something that I'd be personally interested in persuing, but I wonder about what takes you to it, and what one has to tell themselves to be able to keep doing it. Not judging, just curious.
After reading Diary of a Manhattan Call Girl last year, I gained a bit of perspective about the whole issue. And this year my guilty pleasure is Secret Diary of a Call Girl which has come stateside by way of ShoTime. Its an interesting take on the profession and has a way of drawing me in, kind of the way Big Love makes me look at plural marriage as a natural part of life (at least for the time while I'm watching it).

Its not even a fair comparison, really. But, as you can imagine, I've been scouring the web for any and all information pertaining to the HP 910 and one thing I love is comparison shots. The new look of the latest iPaq is certainly starting to grow on me- something quite sexy about the chrome accents.

What do you call a mother who stays home, but who's baby is in daycare? Still a stay-at-home mom, technically? Well, that's my niche right now. I realized that I would slowly go mad if I had to stay at home all day every day. I mean, seriously, I don't really do cooking (more like putting meals together) and I've been meaning to get to the dusting for a few days now.
But one thing that I have got down to a science is caring for our son. Its like a switch just turned on when he was born, and in my typical highly-organized method, I can tell you exactly what he'll be wearing for the rest of the week, I've got his bottle labels ready for the next 2 weeks of daycare, the electric kettle is always hot, and I can make a bottle of formula in about 45 seconds. And all that is for someone I've only known for 8 months!
I absolutely love motherhood, however, I am looking forward to getting a job and going back to work. Because you'd better believe that one of my first expenses when I do is a weekly housecleaning service.

When Dean and I first lived together it was in a small apartment and we decided to keep his PC which was newer and higher spec'd and sell mine. Sharing one PC was an interesting experience- eventually I created user accounts and we'd switch back and forth.

Here's a brief spin-through of Yahoo Go that I've put together. Its showing the 2 widgets that I really use- Flickr and FriendFeed.

Seems I missed out on this one...erm, that's okay. There's a cancelled model K-Jar available on eBay if you're interested. Not that you would be. Seriously, its pretty fugly.
I live in an area that is heavily covered by 3G by AT&T, and with the launch of the iPhone 3G I'm curious about the impact it will have on the speed of my data. I've decided to conduct my own test: for 3 days, I'm going to test the speed using dslreports- at 9am, 3pm, and 9pm. I'll do it for 3 days before the launch of the 3G iPhone, then again a few days after the release. As a follow-up, I'll do the test again after a few weeks (or maybe months) when even more people have adopted it.

Sorry about all the curious posts that have popped up and disappeared throughout the day. I've been trying to get Disqus integrated into our space here. And no sooner had I posted a gloating post about how it was done than I found out that it was actually not working properly. I suspect I may have gotten in right now, but I'll give it a day to see how it goes before I go into full details. In the meantime, thanks for your patience- much appreciated!
Hard-core gadget lovers have one thing in common; at some point you will wait. Whether its waiting a month for the 3G iPhone to be available in stores, or waiting nearly a year for the Sony Xperia to be released we have come to accept it as a part of our lives.

Crackberry has put together a handy comparison chart to help you decide which of these summer blockbusters is for you:

If you've been waiting for the HP Ipaq 900 to be released, then your wait is about to come to an end. The one's going to be released on June 30th (waaaaaay ahead of the 3G iPhone, thank you very much!). No word officially on pricing, but my guess is in the neighborhood of $800. More info on HP (note:pdf link!)

As long as this isn't followed by SecondWife I'm okay with it!

These photos have been making the rounds on the web, supposedly shots of the 3G iPhone to be announced on Monday...I don't know if thats true or not, but it would be pretty hot for it to be available in Red. Picture having the Red iPhone and the new Dell mini-laptop!
It also will allegedly have a forward facing camera to enable iChat- if this is true, the I would love to see what WM developers put together as a competitor! Maybe finally Skpe video calling on WM devices?

Both scary and funny....this reminds me of the type of shenanigans I used to encounter on the subway everyday on the way to work when we lived in New York. Glad to not have to deal with it anymore.

Let me start of by saying that I am very happily married. And one of the things that makes my marriage work is that we are interested in different things- his hobby is cars and car tech and mine is...well, we all know what mine is. However, I was doing some research on the Imate 9502 and stumbled onto Trent's blog, Trent's Sense. Reading through his blog I felt such a sense of deja-vu---he falls in love with the idea of a device, gets it, and then...gets bored.

This year more than ever before I really made an attempt to jump on the social networking bandwagon...and now I'm screaming to be let off. I can't keep up with the dozens of programs and sites that all offer a unique spin on the same old thing. And the aggregators! Enough already! I can't do it, and I don't even have a job at the moment!
So, I am going to simplify my life, which is the purpose of this whole thing in the first place, right? Twitter, which is where it all began, is the staple of most of my communications and will continue to be my main microblogger. YouTube is of course a staple for my videos. Flickr is where I store my photos. And Del.ici.ous is what I use to bookmark sites and stories that I find interesting- especially using the plugin for Pocket Internet Explorer; thats how I mark stories to read later on my PC. And finally, FriendFeed to pull it all together in one place so I can see everything at a glance. FriendFeed finally has a nice mobile website, and I am fairly confident that someone will soon put together a nice application for Windows Mobile too.
Beyond that, I'm going to pretty much ignore everything else. Because if the purpose of all these things is to enrich our lives, then we have to find the happy balance between being enriched versus being overstuffed.

Ok, I have no idea where this photo was taken, but it was recently uploaded on Flickr and clearly shows the Ubiquio 503G on a shelf somewhere in these United States! The price is much higher than it is on Expansys, but still- how exciting to it all out on display!
