Bullet Sunday 188

Posted on Sunday, June 20th, 2010


After an incredibly exhausting and frustrating drive home from Seattle, I arrived to find that I had developed a splitting headache. The only bullets I feel like using today would be on myself, but here's twp shots anyway...

• Sunday. Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there, including mine...

Davy and Dad

• Four. My pocket camera has died, and so I'm in the market for a new one. Except... I am growing increasingly disenchanted with the idea of carrying another gadget with me all the time. Enter iPhone 4, which seems to be finally bring a decent camera to iPhone. At least the sample images sure look compelling. The problem is that the new & improved camera is about the only feature that would make me want it. So now I'm conflicted... because if I upgrade my phone, I'm locked into another two-year contract with AT&T's increasingly shitty service. On the other hand, what a pretty phone it is...


I remain unconvinced that switching to Verizon or Sprint or T-Mobile would benefit me enough to abandon iPhone, as they all have issues, so I'll probably end up upgrading eventually. Apple really should create their own mobile network and eliminate this bullshit once and for all.

From what I can tell, I am home for exactly one month before having to travel again. Wouldn't it be awesome if this actually ends up being true? My aching head remains optimistic despite past history dictating otherwise.

    It sucks that you can’t buy them SIM free in the US. I think they’ll be available in Ireland and the UK SIM Free from next month.

    You’re not traveling to Malaysia in the near future, are you? Or anywhere in Asia, anyway. Phones are usually sold unlocked, without contracts. You’d have to weigh the cost of getting it unsubsidised vs subsidised but locked in to shitty AT&T service.

    Thanks Son. Boy, I didn’t remember that photo.


  4. My girlfriend will be eligible for an iPhone 4 upgrade just in time for Christmas. I however have to wait another year until *next* christmas to upgrade my 3GS. Still, by then the 4S (or whatever) will be out so I’ll end up getting that I expect 😉

    I heard the battery life would be a good reason to update…

    I’ll bet your pop is a master of profanity. Isn’t that how the stereotype goes?

    I still carry my Canon SD780 with me most places, but since I upgraded my phone in February to a Palm Pre, the camera on it takes really nice pics, which are on par with the 2mp setting I use on my Canon. Of course, the iPhone 4 now has a 5mp camera on it, which could easily replace a digital point and shoot.

    When you do get the iPhone 4, I would be interested in seeing the pics you take with it.
