Everyone is all excited today about the free iPhone 3.0 software update. Everyone that is except me… Don’t get me wrong, I’ll probably dock my first gen iPhone tonight when I get home and download it. The only new features that I’m interested in trying right now are spotlight search, cut and paste and voice memos.
So instead of watching the clock till I can get home to update my iPhone, I am doing a couple of different things today. First of all, I returned my Palm Pre to my local Sprint store this morning. The return was painless. The clerk recognized me from the day I purchased it, and when he saw me with the bag in my hand, he said “Didn’t work out huh?”. About 15 minutes later I was walking out of the store. No hassles, evil eyes or anything. I did have to pay a $15 return charge. It would have been $30 if the only reason for the return had been because I had just changed my mind. But since it was due to the coverage area, it was just $15.
The rest of the afternoon I’m going to spend trying to find applications to install on the HP dv2 that I’m going to be using for a week instead of my Macs. I need a good Twitter client, Photoshop application, and multi-client chat application to start with. For Photoshop, I’ll most likely use Gimp since I use it at my day job and it’s pretty similar to Photoshop. And, it’s free! For chat, I could use meebo, but I might go with Trillian as I used it back in the day and liked it well enough. Rob told me that I need to install Sailing Clicker to get around the lack of a remote control.
One hour till it’s time to go home. Vista here I come. 🙂
