Blackberry 9700

So recently I finally upgraded my blackberry to the 9700. This ones got the trackpad which at first I was iffy about because I loved my trackball on the other one but it’s growing on me especially when I’m scanning through my pictures and I just swipe it and its off to the next one. There are a couple things that I don’t like about the trackpad though like the fact that if my thumb is even somewhat tacky from water or heat that I can’t get it to work right. Then the other thing is that it is not sun friendly what so ever. The thing will move on its own from the sun.

Positive things, a wicked fast OS with more memory so I can put way more apps than I had on my other one and lets face it we all need more apps to play around with but honestly I still think I have only about 20 or so. Maybe I’m just that picky and don’t want to bog down my phone. I now have the Wi-Fi which I had wanted on the first phone but got the shaft on that when the rep didn’t tell me it was only available online. Doofus. I’m also on 3G now, superfast woo hoo!

Oh another thing I despise but its not the phone’s fault per say as it comes with the OS 5.0 is that shitty visual voicemail. I hate that with a passion. Just more wasteful space and annoying. I like the old way of getting my voicemails by pushing 1 and not seeing them on another app.

BBM 5.0 is way cooler than the original one too with barcodes, colors and the nifty group feature. Just need to get some more BBM friends as I haven’t been that active on that end. I am in the NFL group though which is nice.

That’s all I hear now from the kitchen sink. I seriously don’t know why I put up with the landlord of this place. Nothing gets fixed, NOTHING. I have to move the kitchen faucet to the middle section where the drips will fall onto the center and roll down the side so I do not have to hear it drip on the bottom alone. It is loud, REAL LOUD. I mean kitchen sinks aren’t that expensive and neither are just the faucets so why not replace them when they don’t work properly anymore? Because she’s cheap and that’s putting it mildly. You cannot compare it to her half though because there is nothing wrong with that and I can guarantee she replaced her kitchen sink with brand new ones a long, long time ago along with the fridge, stove, etc. I mean I could buy my own I guess but I shouldn’t have too.

She’s Out of My League

Alrighty, I’ve been slack and not updating. I went and saw this movie with some friends and it was their choice to see this but I went along. I was thinking a chick flick are you nuts? It turned out to be pretty funny though. It’s obviously on the premise of the pretty girl with the geeky guy and they end up together. It really was a no brainer but they made it quite comical along the way.

I mean who really sets up stupid rules like that anyways? And better yet why do people listen to them? People shouldn’t be rated on a number scale.

As much as I initially liked it, Entrecard has gone to pot now with unbelievably assinine ads getting approved and the quantity, my god, unreal and unwanted. No thanks. I will still drop on a few but its not for me anymores. Aw well.
