Free at Last!

Today, I finally upgraded to the iPhone, no, not the 4, the 3GS. I was able to get the 3GS for half the price of the iPhone 4 from AT&T.

I figured it was best to save money and not worry about any of the iPhone 4's issues. I'll "wait for the upgrade".

I have found it best to go with stable technology and not the latest unstable technology. Companies rush their techs to put a product out with the "fix it later" attitude and they sell millions of product and make billions in revenue.

It seems best to let the people who obviously have more money than I do buy all the newest technology. Being a smart consumer is knowing when to buy and when not to buy, "know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em" ideology.

I must say that moving from a Blackberry Curve to an iPhone 3GS is a leap forward for me and a step in the right direction. Sorry Android people, I like my iPhone better.

Air Hogs Sharpshooter Battery

So, I have an Air Hogs Sharpshooter and I enjoy flying it, but the battery takes 30 min. to charge and only last 4-5 min. for flying.

I decided to open it up and see what battery I currently have, so I can get a better one. The battery that is in the Air Hogs Sharpshooter is a 3.7V 140mAh LiPo battery.

Now, I have to decide what battery to buy. I have seen 400mAh to 700mAh batteries.

Hopefully, I will get the right battery to extend my flight time.

And My Next Phone Will Be....

Yes, it has been decided! When my contract runs out in August, I'm switching from Verizon to AT&T for whatever the newest iPhone is at that time. I showed my wife all the apps on my iPod Touch and she really likes it, so now I'm counting the days until we make the big switch.

My Next Phone?

The iPad is not a reasonable purchase for me, especially since there are many things it cannot do (see Chad W. Smith's blog), I have to decide on what my next cell phone will be. My contract ends in August and I will need a two cell phone deal. I currently have the Blackberry Curve and hardly ever use it except for texting and an occasional phone call.

I think I want the Motorola Droid, but then there's the Nexus One. I may have more options still by August.

We'll see what comes out.

Sell My Touch for an i Pad?

Well, I just found out the tablet for Apple, the iPad is going to sell for around $499. I think I'll wait until it drops to $200 before I buy one. For now, I will stick with my iPod Touch. Hope everyone else buys like crazy because that will send the price down.
