I really really hope there are no wet floors in my building!
Somewhere there’s a wet floor unannounced!
I liked it. I’m sharing it.
Found this on Mashable. Tee Hee
Can you tell?
So, on the 11th of this month (July) we (Ryan and I) could say we had been married for a whole month. Wow!! I know.
That being said, I started thinking about the length of the average marriage these days. Especially when people get married in their 20s. Needless to say, I Googled it. Now, this is not age specific, but apparently the average length of a first (why this qualifier even exists is a whole different conversation) marriage is 8 years (see http://surveysez.com/joomla/index.php/lifestyle/102-length-of-marriage.html).
That is a problem!! Not to mention the fact that between 40% and 60% of marriages end in divorce.
I’m. Not. A. Fan.
Besides, I have nothing to worry about because stats don’t define me. I’m undefinable.
Oh, HTC. Come now, must we (the consumer) always be the ones who lose? This is the reason that I use apps, now..it just seems more fool proof of a plan. How could a manufacturer forget to update their nate app and allow people to be in the dark when their social access is cut?!?! I must say that this is only helping to strengthen my resolve that we should just rely on the vanilla Android OS, and leave the (slow to update, hard to work around) manufacterer specific shells alone. The original article (via Phandroid), with the unbiased facts is after the jump.
HTC Peep or FriendStream Not Working? It’s OAuth’s Fault http://phandroid.com/2010/09/01/htc-peep-or-friendstream-not-working-its-oauths-fault/
So, I was thinking today. Now, while this is usually a horrible was for me to spend my time, I found that it was a chore that must be done. As you may know, I am working on a book (well I guess if that were true I wouldn’t be writing this). What I mean to say is that I have started a book, but have not stuck to my writing schedule at all. This is bad!! I wish to finish this book some time before I die, so it would be best if I actually sat down and wrote something, huh? So, alas, today I decided to get a writing schedule on paper. I just hope that I can stick to it. I also decided to keep you guys abreast of the progress, so keep your eyes peeled for updates. Until next time.
While on my morning stroll through the Twitterverse, I tripped over this crack in the sidewalk:
Now, after reading the attached blurb about the attack on a, yet, older (85 yr old) man, I decided to cut my rounds short. I sigh (sigh), at the fact that people can still be obscene at the ripe, old, age of 64. It saddens me that, much like Vagas, crime never rests! (You’d think at this age, it would need to, right?) This is a bucket of cold water to the face, at the hand of BBC, in that it woke me from my peaceful-“the world is warm and fuzzy”-slumber. So, I say, “oh, yeah”.
I’m sitting on the train with two of my favorite people on the planet and I’m thinking. Now, as some of you may know, thinking is one of my worst pastimes, but alas, I am at it again. The topic of thought is the beauty of all things electronic. As I was reading my tech buzz news feed and catching up on the happenings in the twitterverse, it hit me. Like Newton’s apple, the fruits of years of technological advance have bounced off my noggin and I have discovered the gravity of gadgetry. I am writing this blog on my Mytouch 3G Slide, and realizing all over again how wonderful it is to be able to reach out to the world whenever I want. The options are truly endless, by the way. At this very moment I could snap a pic of the sleeping beauty across the isle from me and share it via e-mail, mms, Twidroyd, Peep, Facebook for Android, Twitter (the official app for Android, which I’m slightly disappointed with, but that’s a story for another day)…and the list could literally go on and on!! She would probably kill me, seeing as she is my best friend and I think her mouth is open, but the ability is there…and that, my klever friends, is beautiful.
P.S. I have linked the apps that I’ve deemed appropriate above. However if you are part of the android family, you can just skip right over to your friendly, neighborhood market and check them out. Also, peep is the HTC twitter client..it does what it is supposed to, I just think that Twidroyd does it best, even over the native twitter app (which is really a shame).
