Welcome to the most over-rated phone in recent times. June 29 is, like, three days away. Lots of things happening on that day: apart from the iPhone launch, Live Free or Die Hard is being released, so is Ratatouille. Personally, my money is on Ratatouille. Trailers look fantastic. I am also a fan of the Die Hard series, but somehow the trailers didn’t do a good job of convincing me. I will watch the movie anyway.
In other news, I got Cablevision/Optimum Triple Play for the apartment. Cable TV, the interwebs and phone. Apparently a good deal at $29.95 each, but I still think I am overpaying. Didn’t have a television until last weekend when I bought a used 25″ RCA. It’s a nice one, good old CRT. Also ordered a bunch of kitchenware from Amazon. A few more things and I should be done with “moving in.” I still don’t have a driver’s license (and I live 15 miles from office), so it’s been tougher than usual. Public transportation is an oxymoron – I have a 2.5 hour commute one way (which includes a 35-minute walk, bus and train).
On the gadget front – still nothing new. No, I won’t be buying an iPhone. I did get a T-shirt from Nokia for being a Carbide.c++ 1.2 beta tester.
