Nokia N95 Cracks and then I Crack

28 Oct

I had been doing so well. I resisted the temptation last week at the Apple store, having realized that my Nokia N95 is by all means a fantastic telephone and needs not to be replaced by an iPhone. I tamed my envy.

Last night, I take my phone out of my pocket and see the following:

Nokia N95 - Cracked!

No idea how that happened.

Now yeah, I could have dealt with this until two weeks from now when I’ll be back in Tel Aviv. After my last phone fiasco (read: swimming with your smartphone will break it), I smartly insured this phone. But who can spend two weeks without email, calendaring, and more on the go? At least that’s what I told myself when walking into the Apple store today. So now I have an iPhone. I’m sure I’ll miss the N95…


Life with a Canon 30D

25 Oct

Those of you who know me, know that I’ve long loved photography. For years I’ve wanted a digital SLR and so recently I finally broke down and bought one. I totally love it – now I just need some more hard drive space.

I’m still not sure what solution to use for showcasing my photos, but so far I’ve broken it down as follows:

I’m using PicasaWeb for full albums that I want to show friends after an outing

Flickr for my higher quality photos

Facebook for photos of my friends who are on Facebook. (I’m using some Facebook application called zuPort to post my Flickr photos into Facebook – anyone have a better recommendation?).

My old gallery has long since been retired, but maybe I’ll resurrect it some day.

I’m using Xee and Adobe Bridge to manage files locally on my computer.

I’d love to hear other people’s photo strategies. In the mean time, check out my photos and let me know what you think.
