4S HNT

I was so excited to get my new iPhone 4S. Announced just one day before Steve Jobs' death (rumor has it he died because it wasn't the iPhone 5...), the pre-order date was Oct. 7th. Being the smart, resourceful guy that I am, I went in on the 8th and plunked down my money. I got a receipt telling me that I would receive my phone on Oct. 21st. Imagine my dismay when I found out that you could actually buy the real deal a full week before that!! I've had to put up with my boss' glee (he really likes the Siri feature!) since last Friday.

Ah, well. My trusty, but broken Droid can last for an extra week. And by pre-ordering, I was eligible for a 30% discount on accessories. If I bought five of them. Even though I only really needed three, I sprung for the five. I got a portable battery charger, for those times I'm on OsTour. I got the Otter case for protection (bought the insurance on the phone, too--live and learn!). I got the dock so that I can charge it and use it at the same time. And I got the car charger, also for mini-OsTours. The fifth accessory (not shown) is the package of screen protectors. So while I haven't gotten the big prize yet, I got the next best thing. I can't wait for Friday to roll around. Of course, I'll be busy with symphony stuff all Friday, and through the weekend, so I don't know when I'll get to learn all the ins and outs. But I'm sure I'll make time!

(Oooh! Click on the pic for a late afternoon surprise!!!)

No Mystery Guest this week. Sad panda.
A smaller sampling over at "...the Other HNT" this week. Be sure to stop by and see who's there. Not terribly explicit, but still probably NSFW...
I noted last week that it had been a full week since I'd posted. Well, I did it again. Grrr... I will try to do better in the coming one! Time has been spent watching football and AMC's Fear Fest, among other horror offerings. And the aforementioned symphony concert. And a big secret project that I can't tell you about yet. But I absolutely promise you that I will!

Personally, I for one refuse to sign up to the corporate machine and bow down the "mighty" Apple! Perhaps I just like to be different. Actually thats more like it, me being a little different that is.

I'm UP in "anticipation" of events to come ;)

Big congrats to you. Oh, how I want one. My 3GS is still quite awesome, but the improved camera in the 4S really has my attention. Enjoy it!

I'm up and loving the new Waits album.

Oh congrats on new iPhone. I hear the camera on it is exceptionally good.

And speaking of lying out naked, on a stone, ready to be sacrificed, I'm up. Happy HNT.

Pocket RockettZ said...

Sweet new phone. My jealousy is huge. I still have phone with a cracked screen.
Good idea on getting that insurance. I probably haven't learned that one because I am thinking "I couldn't do that again."

I am UP

Jack and Jill said...

We love horror movies and have watched them pretty much nonstop since October first. Kind of a tradition with us. Football too, but that we tend to watch beyond October. :)

We're eager to find out more about this big secret project of yours!

We're up at http://frisky916cpl.blogspot.com/2011/10/hnt-exploration.html

HHNT!

Cheeky Minx said...

The clicky says it all! And had me giggling.

Sadly, I'm rather old school. I send smoke signals or carrier pigeons. ;P

(Thank you for the upping... x)

I absolutely recommend the Otter, especially if you're at all rough with your phone; my first case died within a month! LOL

I'm happy to stay with my 3G since I got the iOS5 update, really it does everything I need it to :)

Not participating this week in HNT as I'm running a really hot Week of the Wanton Librarian series with another blogger all week on my blog but figgered I'd stop by and wave hi!! :)

OK, then, I'm up. Sure, late...but, hey. I don't have a whit's thought about a clock most days. It relaxes me, in fact to STOP thinking about time.

But, I'm also "up" about seeing that grin on te click, Osbasso! You really got something fun there in your hands, now...although, I'm so backwoods, I have no idea what it is.
But I know a smile when I see it.
HA!
Have fun, dude!

boneman said...

i miss the Kazi girl...

Love the pictures!

GoodWill said...

I was resistant to join the smartphone revolution, and even when I got my Droid, I've been resistant to the allure of the iPhone. Now? I really want to give it...I'm tempted.

I'm also up for the first time in a couple weeks I believe.

HHNT everyone.

Richard, Shhh... said...

Well, I finally posted again -- this time my latest poem along with a strangely relevant pic. Tattoo pics can be mystical. I love taking pics of them with MY smart phone. Enjoy YOURS, OS! HHNT!

A little late commenting this week, but we're up @ www.libidinousman.blogspot.com.

BTExpress said...

Being that I don't have to work and I stay at home most of the time, I have no need for those new fangled phones. My laptop and old flip phone both serve me well.

M said...

Personally I would have waited for the iPhone 5 as apparently that has a laser keyboard and holographic display ;-)



Anyway... I'm up... better late than never right...


thesecretivewriter said...
