That’s Right: Tell It Like It Is!

My dislike of AT&T has been no secret on my blog. Others have shared similar disgust both in my blog’s comments section and in personal email. To recap just a single reason AT&T has earned my ire: Because AT&T will not offer me the tethered wireless internet connection* my iPhone supports, I have a Verizon wireless card that allows me… Continue reading

My Withings

Everyone knows I’m a technology addict. Therapy would be far less expensive. So I have purchased a new Withings scale in the hopes it will motivate me to eat more healthfully and exercise more often. (Since I’ve added the insulin pump, my A1C is in the normal range, but I have gained 20 pounds over the past 3 years and… Continue reading

The Delightful Storm Now Passed

The storm has passed, meaning we had a slow steady rain here all day. It was wonderful. I so miss the long, dark rainy days of the southeast! At sunset I went to the Pacific and shot these two little videos with my iPhone. You can’t tell how dark and thick the clouds were, or how interesting the fog was.… Continue reading

MMS will be enabled through a software update on that day. [From… Continue reading

Is AT&T a Bunch of Idiots?

Apparently so! What? They can charge iPhone users an outrageous premium for their cell data plans, ludicrous amounts for their text messaging service, provide us with a crappy network, and then claim that had no idea iPhone users would want a network that worked with all of the features the iPhone affords? This is as ridiculous as Delta Airlines making… Continue reading

Some Updates at

Three things, really invisible to you the reader, have gone on here at over the past several weeks. Thing Number One I installed iMT, an iPhone/iPod Touch plugin that creates a seamless interface for these devices with the MT4 installation allowing the user to post new entries and manage posts and comments from multiple blogs running on the same… Continue reading

Google: Too Big, Too Powerful, Too Much Information

While appreciating their search functionality, I’ve been rather ambivalent about Google. But in recent days, I’ve decided it’s time for me to explore other options aside from using Google exclusively for so many things. Yesterday I went to demonstrate setting up a free Blogger account. Now Google requires the user give Google a cell phone number to set up a… Continue reading
