You needed a punch bag, didn’t you?

You’re late, too bad. 🙂

iPhone 4, the aftermath.

Presented to the world 3 weeks ago with pre-orders getting so high that some providers had to stop accepting them, iPhone4 owners have already started to report the first problems. The we-are-so-smart-and-so-cool-and-fashioned antenna feature apparently is not that smart after all. According to Gizmodo, the new iPhone from Apple loses reception when you hold it by the antenna band (video here), besides that, there’s also several people reporting strange yellow spots on the iPhone display.

Nothing surprising here to be honest, there’s always issues when a new product is launched particularly when we’re talking about iPhone, but also considering that Apple rushed up the iPhone 4 release to race with the competitors, so you know what?

I’m glad these gadgets always get released first in the US or whatever country, they are the test users for Europe in most of these cases, hah! 🙂

Google goes Bing!

Enough said! 🙂 I think it’s the first time I see Google following Microsoft’s trends.

Quite interesting… and I do like Bing more right now than Google; not only because I find Bing much more fluid in all-around search but specially since I discovered Google History.

Alphan… Scratch that.

Originally was going to write a post about alphanumerical keys, but I’m holding that one up for later. Haven’t really written anything since I came from the USA, so this is going to be it.

So after that awesome trip to New York and Los Angeles, a week passed by filled with a mixture of work and drama. Oh, the trip was awesome, yes. Granted we didn’t really had that much time to visit places and all that we still managed to snitch some time after work and go to some cool places (Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, Hollywood Boulevard, etc) and meet some nice people. (note to self: Long distances = direct flight, period – not arguable, ffs!)

Now, as I was saying… back home. Don’t even know what to think about all of this to be honest. I’m divided between Murphy’s Law and Chuck Norris’s roundhouse-insta-knock-out kick. Other than that? I’m calm as a dead man, fo’sho!

Let’s see how this week goes though. Should be interesting, it’s all or nothing I’d say. Either all the pieces of the puzzle start to come together or it’s going to be one hell of a ride <insert evil grin here>.
