Nostalgia

I typed on My Hermes Rocket Typewriter the other day.

Funny I did it because I don’t have a printer(–yes, its bad I know. In this day and age…). Yet it made the process of typing all the more worthwhile. Insomuch I actually posted something. Madonn.

I love my Hermes Rocket. If one day computers ceased (…yes, the horror) I’d be fine typing away on my typewriter.

Which reminds me I need to finish typing my novel on it. Anyways…

Which brings me to this…I bought a Motorola Razr…

No, not that Razr.

This Razr:

–The Motorola Razr V3 Matte Black. Although the Droid Razr is very nice, its rather a wee bit large for my taste. Beside all other things I’d like to have it but probably Verizon won’t let me. Even if they did I don’t much like the $299.99 price tag. Who knows, maybe in six years I’ll buy it! Look at the price drop of the V3 Matte Black:

Indeed .

“Why?” you ask would I purchase such device in 2011–almost 2012…probably for the same reason I bought the Hermes Typerwriter.

Nostalgia.

Yeah, I’m going to use it. I like the fact that it’s a GSM Quad Band phone–although that fact may not be so useful as before as I am no longer employed by the airline and don’t travel outside the Continental USA that much anymore. Although if I go to Canada or even Puerto Rico again (although my Virgin Mobile phone worked perfectly there. Oh, I miss thee Puerto Rico). But overall it’s form factor and nostalgia.

Plus I’m kind of tired of the whole smartphone thing too. I totally blame the iPhone and AT&T for that. Mostly AT&T–yeah,  AT&T. As I couldn’t even use the phone part of the iPhone 85% of the time.

I was going to just use my iPhone 3G on T-Mobile but that wouldn’t be as much fun. Maybe I’ll have to buy an iPhone 2G. ^_^

I Think I’m Not Getting an iPad 3G + Wi-Fi

Cutting to the chase. There’s no unlimited plan. Capped at 5GBs a month. True other carriers charge more for the same cap (Sprint Mobile Broadband $59.99 on 3G/Unlimited on 4G).

My thing is that there was an unlimited plan. Offer it. I’ll pay $35 for it–possibly $40…maybe. But AT&T has gone screwed it over.

I’m not alone when I say this but AT&T has gone and screwed over Apple. From the fiasco earlier today with the iPhone, and the whole iPad email thing. AT&T has proven not just in the past months but certainly overall, that they suck.

I’m already almost decided that if I don’t continue to have unlimited data on the iPhone after my contract ends–I’m not renewing.

As I mentioned in an earlier post I’d rather purchase a Wi-Fi enabled iPad than purchase an iPhone 4.

I’m not overtly excited about it. It looks nice indeed. But I’m not excited.

I saw the HTC Evo and was impressed. The whole Wi-Fi Hotspot also caught my attention. I liked it.

I’d have to pay for that over at AT&T.

I’ve had Sprint before and I’d prefer them over AT&T. I never had a dropped call with Sprint.

I hadn’t even experienced a drop call till I got an iPhone on AT&T’s network.

I’ve had my share of cell phones on different networks. From Alltel Wireless, Nextel (before Sprint), Sprint (after Nextel), Helio (on Sprint’s Network), T-Mobile, and then finally AT&T.

I’ve had issues with them, mostly regarding billing, overcharges, wrong data plans, voice plans, etc. Which were all corrected.

Yet with AT&T I had the main issue with the actual voice/data service.

I digress however.

My other reason for not yet purchasing an iPad is the whole retina display. I feel that soon. Rather than later. Apple will release a retina display iPad. If I purchase an iPad within the next three months and in a month after my purchase they release a new iPad. I think I’ll be fairly certain I might not buy an Apple product for a long time.
