Damn Technology

Who here is good with technology?  I mean who can totally geek out and figure anything out...video game console, computer/laptop, cameras/video cameras, cell phones, iPod/iPad/iPhone...you get the point.  Okay, here is my issue.

A year and a half ago, I upgraded from my Crackberry (with the track ball that quite working) to a Droid 2.  The only thing I found that I liked about the Crackberry was that I could turn my phone off every night and my alarm would still go off.  Over the course of the last 20 months I have discovered:

~ Every other day I need to turn off my phone and turn it back on otherwise when I make a call or someone calls me, I get no dial tone or I cannot hear anything on the other end.
~ The screen freezes to the point where you have to take the battery out and reset it and turn it back on.
~ The camera and video camera do not like to work all the time and it is always when you see something totally awesome that it will not work.
~ They do not make indestructible cases because it has a slide screen.

Example of the camera: I get home last night and find that the douche bag has parked his truck in the center of the driveway...so I guess that was his way of telling me I am parking on the street...I wanted photo graphic evidence to prove his douche bagginess...oh and tonight I took three awesome pictures of three hot air balloons with skydivers weaving in and out of them and not a single one actually saved...mother effer!

I am very accident prone so I always purchase a case for my phone.  I bought a case for my phone and not even a few days went by and I accidentally knocked it off the arm of the couch and it fell about a foot and a half to the CARPET and BROKE!!!  Seriously?  WTF!  Reinforce that damn plastic silly companies!

I will never again buy another phone with a slide screen.  If this dang phone came with an indestructible case then maybe my first Droid 2 would not have had the screen shatter when it decided to leap out of my hand and have a screen-to-shop floor fight...and the screen lost!

The pictures that I took tonight were awesome and I swear when I took them, they showed up in the little preview screen and if anyone knows how to get them to show up I would love to share them!  I know the skydivers were not actually weaving between the hot air balloons but the elevation of both it just looked like it!

Alright...time for this little lady to catch some sleep!  Until next time!
