April 6th 2008 - Technology Will Be The Death Of Me

So, last night (really early this morning) I decided that I was going to finally upgrade my iPhone to 1.1.4 and jailbreak it (Jailbreaking is a hack for the iPhone which allows it to run some really great third party applications like... NES ;-)).


I had stopped updating a couple of releases ago so that because the jailbreaking was a little shakey. But I've heard good things about ZiPhone and decided to try it out.


So I got a put on "the Prestige" (I love this movie by the way) and got to work. By 3:00am I was still trying to get it to work. Frustrated and tired, I gave up.


After waking up this morning, clarity set in and I realized that I've never been able to update properly through my laptop and decided to try it on my desktop computer. I was up in running in 10 minutes.


Later on I headed out with Tam and bought a few pairs of much needed jeans and then watched a new episode of "John Adams" on HBO on Demand. I'm really enjoying this series.


The rest of the night was spent photographing Bratz dolls for thier auction on Ebay.


So here I am taking advantage of the lighting and backdrop that I had set up for the photos and enjoying a really cool new app that takes any song that you are playing, and displays lyrics in real time. I'm easily amused ;-).


By the way, with all the activity over the last few days, I haven't been able to get to reply to all my comments and look at everyone's photos... but I will be back to my usual activities soon!
