A few days ago my phone updated, however I was sadly disappointed when it ended up being a minor update from 4.01 to 4.02 of Ice Cream Sandwich.
Well last night there was another update. This time it was the update I have been waiting for; finally my phone is running Android 4.1.1 Jellybean. Although I really did like the opening sequence for Ice Cream Sandwich (the loading screen was really colourful and animated), the new X loading screen just doesn’t do it for me, But I am already noticing the difference. Before when I would tilt my phone to the side to type it would lag a bit, so the lag corrections of Jellybean are living up to the hype. Haven’t really noticed any other differences as of yet but then again I just rebooted about 2 minutes ago.
In July I posted about my favourite local band (to my home town of Ottawa), Go Long (!). I have been following the beautiful voice of Danielle Allard (Lead Singer of Go Long(!)) for quite a few years and I am extremely impressed with how far she has come since the days of Far From the Trees (The first band I saw Dani sing in). With the CD Release less than a month away I was excited to hear that they released an new video from their soon to be released album.
Working for the UPS Store definitely has some major ups when it comes to funny stuff. Each week we get a Weekend update from the higher-ups and this week I could not stop laughing. Read the excerpt below:
Remember, it takes a college degree to fly a plane, but only a
high school diploma to fix one; a reassurance for those of us
who fly routinely in our jobs.
After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a ‘gripe
sheet,’ which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft.
The mechanics correct the problems; document their repairs on
the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the
Well this is new, the blackberry definitely didn’t have this app installed. I had to get from my apartment in Dorval all the way to Canada Computers in Laval with absolutely no idea how to get there by car. That’s right , 6months on the island and I rarely leave Dorval. But none the less I neded to fix my PC. So I access their website on my new nexus and I hut the link to Google maps (I was gonna copy the address and add it manually but I can’t figure out how to copy text from a web site on this thing) and I hit directions. I used my current location as the start point and the store as my destination, then I hit navigation. It launched Google Nav and gave vocal turn by turn instructions. Absolutely awesome. It also knew where there was construction and guided me through it.
Testing out posting to my blog from my phone. I was able to do it from my torch and I found it fairly useful to post stuff while on the go. Hoping it posts. Btw, android rocks.
Ok, so I figured I would rant a little today. You see, for teh past month or so I have been so excited to get myself a new Credit Card, things have been on the Up and Up and I figured I could use one to try and get my credit score rating back up a tad (seeing as I have had majorly bad credit for the past 7 years). Now I have had a lot planned for this new CC, number 1 being a brand new Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Now I have been without a phone for over a month now and the withdrawal symptoms are kicking in, especially since I am so close to getting one.
