Long time no post…

I am sorry that I haven’t posted in a couple of days… I have been very busy with the new job and church…

I do have some good posts but I just need to sit down and write them out…

I recently got a new cell phone (1st – Mogul 6800; 2nd (Final) – Palm 755p)…

I recently had 2 friends get the iPhone and they have mixed reviews…

I also started using some new technology like Brightcove.com and YouTube Developer…

I will post more later…

Some new news stuff…

Here’s the most up to date technology information:

Who founded Facebook? A new claim emerges. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/01/technology/01facebook.html?_r=1&ref=technology&oref=slogin

My thoughts: What is up with these fellow classmates saying Mark Zuckerburg stole the idea. I think they are just jealous because the company is doing so well. I think if these guys have a true claim then it will be obvious in court but it sounds like they just want a piece of the Facebook pie. I personally think Facebook is the best online social network out there.

No New NBC Shows to be sold by Apple http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/01/technology/01apple.html?ref=technology

My thoughts: Oh no… That means no more SNL, Heroes, or any of my other favorite shows. Come on Apple, settle this dispute please!!! I was just getting ready to download Season 1 of Heroes and hoping that Season 2 would be put up on a constant basis during the season. Apple and NBC need to resolve this issue immediatley.

San Fransico Wi-Fi Fog http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/08/31/san-franciscos-wi-fi-fog/

My thoughts: That just stinks. Earthlink is pulling out of its plan to blanket San Fransico with free Wi-Fi from Google. Now San Fransico is not going to be Wi-Fi free everywhere. After reading that article, I looked into other cities that have tried this in the past and there were a few. Chicago ended up tabling its project due to the amount of money the city would have to invest. I think the idea is great but I do see from a business perspective how they could be costly for the city and the companies.

School is going and I got a new job!!!

So I have been very busy… School is the full swing of things… I have attended all classes thus far… I am very excited about a few of them because I can use the information right away…

The other exciting news is I have a new job!!! I will be working at the YMCA at as “Youth Sports Commissioner”… Basically my job is attending practices and make sure coaches on aware of the weekend’s schedule… And then on Saturdays I am at the fields making sure all games are going and everyone is doing what they are supposed to be doing…

So I am free from Capital One!!! I am sad to leave all the people I know there but very happy that I begin something new… The new job uses a lot more of my skills and leadership capibilities as well…

On a quick side note I have seen that my hits have gone down and that is probably because I haven’t been bloggin constantly enough… I guess I need to figure out a schedule to blog and make sure I keep everyone updated on the newest technology and my life… See ya around!!!

Teen gets new car and 3 new iPhones for hacking the iPhone

I had heard rumors about this 17 year old (George Hotz) kid hacking the iPhone and making it able to work with any network…

Here’s the new news on the kid: http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/us/AP-ODD-IPhone-Unlocked.html?_r=1&oref=slogin

He’s getting a new Nissan 350Z, 3 new iPhones and got a paid job… All for hacking the iPhone…

Congrats to George Hotz but wow those companies paid some serious $$$ for that phone…

My new technology love is Flickr…

While I have know about Flickr logo. If you click it, you'll go home for a while I have never really looked into its uses… I have now begun using Flickr for pictures… I stumbled across Flickr again when I was reading someone else’s blog… I kept saying why don’t I use Flickr for my pictures…

Here are some pluses I found to using Flickr logo. If you click it, you'll go home:
~ Well known!!!
~ Cool Flash badge (but I can’t use it right now because I let WordPress.com host my blog but it’s still sweet!!!)
~ Neat slideshow function (better than the Picasa one in my book)
~ Great uploader (Faster and user friendly)
~ Works with lots of blogging software packages and Facebook!!!

Some downsides (but I haven’t really run into these yet):
~ Monthly upload allowance (100 Mb/mo)
~ No download capability once uploaded

So my new technology love is Flickr… Thanks Flickr logo. If you click it, you'll go home for being such a great picture software package…

Here’s my slideshow… Check it out!!!

So I suggest you sign up now!!! Let me know what you think about Flickr logo. If you click it, you'll go home.

VCU Fall Semester 2007 begins…

Well classes officially began yesterday but today is my first full day of classes… I have 4 classes but only 3 classes are meeting today… One of my classes is an “out of class” assignment which was to read Ch. 1 and the class syllabus…

My first couple of classes have been good so far.. I still have Organizational Behavior and Accounting today so we will see how those go… I will post more later…

Right now I am sitting in the student commons watching everyone rushing to classes… The VCU internet also stinks…. I have typed this posting like 3 times now and I can’t upload my pictures on Flickr…

However Tori can get on Flickr what is up with that…

I took some pictures of the new VCU art they have around campus and some other stuff…
