Girls Write Out
Tuesday, December 16, 2008

I admit it. I coveted. I've been watching the iPhones for two years and wanting one in the worst way. We didn't have AT&T service in our town though. I was in Hawaii when the word came that they were buying my cell service, Centennial. I let out a whoop that made everyone laugh. But I still thought I had to wait until the purchase was complete, sometime next year, but after talking to a Centennial salesman, I found out I could go ahead and get one. Just to make sure, I called AT&T and sure enough!

So now I'm the proud owner of a white iPhone. This thing ROCKS! Right now I'm working on putting in photos for family and friends with their numbers. It syncs with my MacBook and I have all my calendar right there as well as phone numbers and addresses. I downloaded some programs that do cool things like tell me where to find restaurants. One I particularly like tells me the nutrition info on all the fast food places you can imagine. It's very slick and I figured it out right from the moment it was in my hand. I can update Twitter, check my email and look up a research book on Amazon, all while traveling. Very cool!

So if you see a glow from Indiana, it's me smiling!

Of course, you know, you just completely ruined your poor hubbie's perfect Christmas gift...!

My friend has a program on his that lets him play the flute--you actually blow on the phone and it plays! Unbelievable! ...and a little freaky. :-)

Enjoy your new toy.

Yeah, I'm so glad you got one! I didn't realize they had them in white... did you get the larger 16 MB one? I only have the smaller 8 MB one. It's black, but I have to put a protective case on mine. I'm clumsy and drop my phone all.the.time!

I was going to tell you about some cool apps, but I see you've already found a bunch of them! I love UrbanSpoon, Amazon Mobile, iTV, Flixter, Shazam (very cool, because I can never remember who sings a song), and several others. I love the free games, too. Which app are you using for Twitter? I tried Twinkle first but have also downloaded Twitteriffic and have been using that.

Have fun and enjoy your new tool, it's so much more than a toy :)

Merry Christmas!

Very cool, Rachel!

Stacy, I am using Tweetie. I've also downloaded Favorator where my favorites show up with a picture. I've got a Facebook app, a POI (points of interest), Yellow Pages, TrafficInfo, Stanza, and a Flashlight app that makes it shine like a flashlight if I need it to. LOL
