iPhone early adopters - unite!

So the $200 price drop has several of us early adopters pissed, to say the least. Wired has a great figure showing our "investment" depreciated by about $3 a day since launch.

You can have your say, though. Apple has a section on their site where you can "Share your iPhone story". Here's my submission, enjoy:


Thanks to the price drop, I just got screwed by Apple for being an early adopter. When they said Jobs I through they meant Steve, not Screw.


Do I think it's the best phone out there? Yes. Would I have waited to pick one up had I know the price would've dropped by $200? Hell yes.

Update: Apple announced that there's a $100 rebate for those of us feeling screwed. The $100 must be used on merchandise at their online or offline store.

I grieve the fact the the "Cadillac of cellphones" has been made cheaper all in the name of "technology!"

iPhone has lost "class."

I told my wife before the release of the iPhone that it would go down in price before Christmas. I didn't expect it so soon or to be so steep a drop, but I KNEW it was coming. As should anyone who follows Apple, Palm, RIM, or any other phone manufacturer. The Razor started at an outrageous price and dropped quickly. The RIM Pearl is already dropping after mere months of availability. It's the price we pay for being early adopters. As for my wife and I, we don't regret our purchase of two iphones, nor do we feel cheated. Apple has already put out two updates to the iPhone and will soon be adding new features. This is unheard of in the phone industry. So forgive Apple for trying to make the iPhone a succes. It's not a personal attack against you!

Charlottesville, Skinheads, White Supremacists, Trump and Idiocy

I'm having a lot of emotions about what took place in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend. None of them are good or positive for the direction of the United States. The GOP rode a media whore, a second rate TV "star", and lifelong con artist to the White House to help advance their agenda -- of which they have no idea how to implement.

The biggest problem is, Trump is a well documented racist that tries to help legitimize FOX News and Alex Jones and every racist thing in between. What these media properties all know is that a) division works and b) some people of faith will believe anything. Trump pushed the Obama birther theory, he declined housing to African Americans and he employs employed a racist in former Breitbart employee Steve Bannon. I'm not going to get into his circus of racists on staff including Gorka and Miller, because they aren't worth the words.
I have a lot of conservative friends that voted DRUMPF with hopes he'd bust up Washington. An…

How to Rick Roll Someone

I've noticed a lot of traffic to my blog from a post I did on Rick Roll. In particular, people are looking for how to do it. So, without further adieu, here's a quick 1, 2, 3 on "How to Rick Roll Someone."


Pick your target. This should be someone not suspecting a peculiar link, email or heads up. Works great if you're the guy/girl in the office known for sending YouTube links via IM
Grab the URL. The YouTube video is probably the easiest to snag, because the URL isn't a dead giveaway. Sites that truncate URLs like SnipURL and TinyURL are handy if you want to send folks to yougotrickrolled.com.
Pick your delivery method and send! IM, email, blog (wink!), what-have-you.


Please, feel free to get creative. Our programmers used a "Can someone test this site?" email to the office to Rick Roll the entire staff. Or better yet - send the URL along to unsuspecting family members as "Our newest family pictures!".

Another fun way is via conference or phon…
