so i have been thinking about ways to stay in touch with family while away. blog, email, cell phone… all good options, but what if i just want to share a little bit of info (i’m at work – heading home – at the gym).

in preparation i have set up a jaiku and twitter account and will add my wife to the list… more to come as i find if this is something i use (and more importantly, she uses) to keep in touch.

twitter and jaiku seem to be neat tools, just trying to see if they will improve my life or i will just post random thoughts.


iphone guided tour

apple has released a guided tour of the iphone – a 20 minute video about how to use the iphone as well as some tips and tricks.

i watched the whole thing. it was interesting and informative. for those who get one or are interested in getting one, this is a nice tutorial about how to get using it before you actually have one in your grubby mitts…

again – for me, i’m getting further and further from one (both professional and practical reasons). that being said, i’ve also been told by my wife that i cannot use AT&T wireless for my carrier (which makes me feel icky).

i have mentioned that i have been looking at the blackberry perl and curve – but verizon does not sell them. the ones they do sell cost $200-300 (vs. the perl from at&t refurb for about $50!)

makes me soooo mad…
