Geek Post, beware…

This entry was posted by on Monday, 1 May, 2006 at

I finally did it. After a few years of using my old Nokia cell phone, I went into Cingular yesterday and upgraded to a bit of technology I don’t need, but sorely wanted. I got myself the new Cingular 8125 Windows Mobile 5.0 PDA Phone.

So now I get to spend my day(s) figuring out wi-fi, Bluetooth, and all of the new fun features I have with this total geek toy!

The biggest benefit though; mobile email with a qwerty keyboard. No more pressing numbers 1-5 times to try and spell out words! Now, my “k1l3r m4d l337 sk1lz” will finally be “Killer, Mad, Elite, Skills”! And people, THAT makes me happy.

  1. I knew you couldn’t just sit on your duff yesterday and enjoy the downtime!

  2. 😛

    I -did- sit around for a bit… but I got bored 🙂

  3. Ha!

    Congrats on the geek blast. My new corporate blackberry pales in comparison to that serious piece of business. Plus, my new corporate blackberry does not work because whoever provisioned it must have been stoned. But not to worry, even when it works I’ll probably not understand how to use it. I’m not sure why I must have a new corporate blackberry (apparently because I will travel regularly, who knew?), but certainly we’ll have to send inane notes to each other to justify the cost.

    Ho-ho!!

  4. Gee… you could have been sitting around at Baron’s Feast and not been bored, AND been stuffed full of great food to boot.

    Just sayin’…

  5. Can you use it to check someone’s vital signs by waving it mysteriously in the air in front of them?

  6. No, but I’m pretty sure it also includes a Geiger counter.

  7. totally forgot. brain not working. my bad 🙁
    besides, I was bored not DOING anything… so I got up and did something 😉

  8. OOOOH! I need to see if there is an app out there that does BOTH these things….

  9. Re: Ha!

    Danke mucho! and send me a message when you get yours working 🙂

  10. Re: Ha!

    ew. i hate my corporate blackberry. i hide it in my desk and never use it. it is so counter-intuitive and has the added bonus of feeling like you are holding a calculator to your head.

  11. How about a shaver attachment?

  12. Add the DUI breath test to it and I’ll get one!!

  13. So this is what it looks like…very spiffy. So now the whole ‘but if I did, it would be free thing’ works…nice 🙂
