Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

We cashed in some AmEx points for gifts cards to Williams Sonoma and got a Staub frying pan.

And also picked up some of those Fig Newton Thins--actually good cookies where you only need one or two to be happy with the snack.

Besides that, I got some Disney pins I collect. A couple that cost a bit, one that was pretty cheap.

My Qtek S200 (March-2006) on the right and his newly aquired british little brother the Oxygen XDA Neo (Jan-2007) on the right.
Running Windows Mobile 6.5 and (OMAP ported) Android Froyo respectively.

ALL HAIL THE PROPHET! (Even with a iPhone 4G, i miss this little thing. Partially the reason i bought another.)
Forgive me if that sounds like a really stupid question, but what do you actually do with them? Or are you more of a nostalgic PDA collector?

Not a stupid question at all, I get it a lot actually.

The Qtek (left) is basically a mobile diagnostic terminal (Windows Server and OBD-2+Logger). Running Windows Mobile 6.5. And I'm currently building a working Android Froyo port on the Oxygen (right).

I'm by no means a collector, every piece of technology i have has a specific use. My old HTC Blueangel (Dec-2004) is working as a DJ in my team's Chevy van (running WM6.1 TouchFLO).

My HTC Kaiser (April-2008), running Android, is currently my work phone, replacing my San Francisco. So I use that one more or less every day.

Most of my other devices are hooked up to my smarthome system and are used as remotes. My HTC Wallaby (AUG-2002) was recently retired because of a (far) too slow cpu.

Cool! I've heard a lot from PDA/smartphone savvy people about the customizability in terms of alternative mobile OSs, but I've never actually seen it in action.

I'd be totally into a smarthome system, unfortunately, I don't think I'd be able to convince my roommates that they need to evolve beyond the stone age

I was wandering Borders yesterday looking for something I was willing to buy. I found this. I had seen the trailer for the upcoming movie and was intrigued. So when I saw this hardcover, I decided it was well worth the $20 the sale put the price at.

Does paying for a plumber count?
Well, that depends on how you chose to... reimburse him.

Wait, I must have confused reality with a bad porn script. Again.

Uhm, anyway, my latest purchase: Just ordered a shiny new Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone since my trusty old Motorola MOTORAZR V9 is in the process of dying a horrible, horrible tech-death.



So. Happy. <3
It's here, arrived earlier today, and THIS THING IS A FUCKING BEAST. Slick, super powerful and it looks freaking gorgeous.

^ My It security teacher has one. Its officially the best phone i've ever used.

Crank it up to 1.5ghz and flash CyanogenMod and it'll run like a dream. The dual core Cortex beats pretty much anything on the market.
Hell, you're even getting Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 2.4)
