taking the plunge!… MacBook Pro coming tomorrow

So I am probably the last mac lover to upgrade to the MacBook Pro but finally I am ready and able to make the plunge…   I have been waiting and waiting, which I am glad I did because if I would have got the MacBook Pro right when it came out I would have missed out on the santa rosa processor, boo hoo! Anyways I will of course have a review in a few days for the 2 people out there that don’t have one yet!

Another Apple announcement coming- 9/5

As we have all expected, Apple has announced that they will be having a ‘Special Event’ on the September 5th 2007. The invitation went out to selected press in the US on 8/28 and featured a silhouetted figure holding an iPod and the phrase: “The beat goes on”. So judging from the invitation there is likely to be iPod-themed announcement.
This event will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, and it’s widely believed that Apple will reveal updates to the nano and 5G iPod range.

The Canon 40D is coming!

The wait is over, it is official… the Canon 40d is coming at the end of September. According to reports the new 40D will have a 10.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor with extensive noise reduction technology and 14-bit conversion. A 6.5 fps, burst rate up to 75 consecutive JPEGs or 17 RAW images and DIGIC III Image Processor with a magnesium-alloy exterior, shutter durability-tested to 100,000 cycles, top speed 1/8000, top x-sync speed 1/250.

The 40D will also have EOS Integrated Cleaning System, Picture Style settings, Spot metering, and Highlight Tone Priority for advanced in-camera image control and a large 3.0-inch LCD monitor with advanced Live View Function and new options for reduced shutter time lag and quiet operation.

Sounds good? It does to me! I am very excited for this release and will be saving hard core starting right now… the US retail price is supposed to be $1299 for body and $1499 for body + EF 28-135IS lens, not too bad.

What do you think?

Top 5 Reasons YOU Need a Hipster PDA

In todays fast paced, go go go world everyone needs some kind of “pda” type system/devise. There are many electronic PDA organizers, Smart phones and even mini computers that promise to help you get and stay organized and keep everything in order so why on earth would someone chose to use a paper version? Something you can’t sink between your mobile devise, work computer and macbook pro?? There are many reasons and here are the TOP 5 Reasons why YOU need a Hipster PDA.

1. You can truly take it anywhere (except the shower and well a electronic pda cant go into the shower either) and you don’t need to worry about cords, cables, batteries or “stylus”
2. It won’t die on you when you need it most.

3. By nature It’s small, thin, flat, and can be customized to any size you wish, with many different internal and external color and template options.

4. It’s simple and effective- write it down, do it, cross it out. DONE

5. It doesn’t and will never become obselete and or need “updates” after 2 months

I STILL cannot believe SPRINT

Yes, it is old news so to say, people have know about it for over a week but i still CANNOT believe them… OMG! is my reaction, who does that? well sprint does… if you have no idea what i am talking about Sprint sent letters notifying some customers that their service would be canceled by the end of July due to excessive calls to customer service.

The letters stated..

“Our records indicate that over the past year, we have received frequent calls from you regarding your billing or other general account information,” the letter reads. “While we have worked to resolve your issues and questions to the best of our ability, the number of inquiries you have made to us during this time has led us to determine that we are unable to meet your current wireless needs.”

“Therefore after careful consideration, the decision has been made to terminate your wireless service agreement effective July 30, 2007.”

I have also heard of a few people getting these letters for excessive roaming…

I understand that sprint may loose money on people that call up customer service and argue with reps, or try to get discounts or even roam alot but i think they are going to loose more money now, sprint already has bad rap who is going to want to sign up for new service now?
