Home Again

We got home Friday evening from our New York trip. My work sent me there for an IBM cloud computing conference. The conference was good, and it was interesting meeting IBM engineers and seeing some of the products they have in the pipeline.

As for New York, we didn't have time to see too much of it, but we did enjoy ourselves. The best food we had was at Epstein's Kosher Deli. That was wonderful, and very reasonably priced.

All in all, we're wonderfully happy to be back home. Neither of us are city people, so a couple of days is usually plenty of city time for us. I'm enjoying writing on my back porch this morning, sipping my coffee. I bet that not too many people in New York are enjoying a morning like mine!

Road trip

I could have gone the whole trip without this.

Faded rose

My climbing rose, at the end of its season. It usually blooms in late summer too. I've seen in bloom during early snows too.

Evo test

Picked up the evo yesterday. Testing using it to do a blog post.

Well, there's not an Evo to be found anywhere near here. Who would have thought that phone would have been THAT popular?

I'm disappointed. I was all set to play with it tonight. Dangit to heck.

Radio Shack came through with a guarantee to get us two by Friday. That's better than the Sprint store did. I got a blank stare and "I don't know when we'll get any more" from the guy there. What? You work in a Sprint store and don't know when you'll get another shipment of their most popular phone?! I have a feeling he just didn't feel like doing the work to put us on the waiting list.

Well, as a consolation, here's a Gizmodo article with pics. I think the reviewer would cheerfully marry the Evo. :-)

New Evo Phone, MAYBE

My husband and I are thinking about upgrading phones to the Evo. It's a touchscreen phone that runs the Android (Linux) Operating System.

I've been super happy with my Blackberry, so I'm waffling on whether to upgrade. My husband is definitely going to though, so I'll post some pics and our impression once we get it. We're scheduled to get it tomorrow evening.

Anyone have an Evo? I'd love to hear your impressions. I have to decide before tomorrow afternoon if I'm trading in or not.
