iPhone 3G

Yes, I am late jumping into this discussion, but hey, I’ve been busy! I had the joy of testing out a first generation iPhone with the 2.0 beta software on it over the past few months through my job. It was quite interesting. Since the 3g version came out on July 11, I was lucky and got to trade it in for a new one. And I must say, this thing is pretty darn sweet! As you know if you read my blog, I am a phone junky. I have gone through several over the past few years, some as part of my job testing, some personally because I just love gadgets. My most recent phone before this one was the ATT Tilt, which I still keep in my purse as a backup. I still LOVE that fun, but I have to admit that since the new iPhone came out, I have left the battery on the 3g die, and I have only touched it once! Now as all iPhone users probably know, there are still a few shortcomings on the iPhone, but so far I have been dealing with them. My want list includes: MMS Messaging (yes, I know about the workarounds, but it is still stupid as he** that the phone does not have it, and don’t tell me that MMS is not needed, or that “maybe...

An update on my friend mentioned in the January post.

Since I have not posted in so long, I never updated. Well, I am very sad to say that Maleikka Williams passed away on April 14, 2008. She was only 36 years old. I flew to Atlanta and met up with my friends for her funeral. It was extremely sad. She leaves behind her husband Steve, and her 2 very young daughters Syndi, and Makayla. She fought so hard. Just seeing her in January it was amazing to learn about how fast her demise was after that. I miss her terribly. (She’s in the middle of this...

ShareThis plugin issue

I love the ShareThis plugin. I have been using it for quite a while. Also, I notice that it is taken over the web. I believe it started as a plugin by Alex King. Now it’s has it own identity, community, website, forum, etc. Wow! I upgraded Wordress from version 2.2 to version 2.6 yesterday, then I upgraded to the latest version of the ShareThis plugin. It went fine, but now you will notice that I have that ShareThis icon way up at the top of my blog. Yeah, umm… it does not belong there. I checked the forums and I see that it’s a common issue with certain things. I am just hoping to find a fix, cause it’s just not right...
