Goodbye iPhone… hello Nexus One! March 30, 2010 at 10:02 pm

As you all know I am a technology nut. I love all aspects of the tech world from software to hardware and all in-between. A few years ago I became infatuated with all things Apple. In 2005 I bought my first Apple product, an iPod. In 2006 I bought a Mac Mini and ventured into the world of OSX. In 2008 I bought an iPhone after much desire and begging of Rogers to carry it.

In the past year though my feelings have changed. In September I purchased a new top of the line Dell PC with Windows 7 and have had no regrets. Windows 7 is stable and sleek and works perfect for me and my needs. That was a big leap but the leap I made this past week was bigger. I purchased a Google Nexus One phone to replace my iPhone.

iPhone screwjob June 27, 2008 at 11:24 pm

For all my Canadian friends that are interested in purchasing the iPhone on July 11 I’m sure you have read the Rogers rate plans by now. And if you are a poor boy like me you are most likely as angry as I am.

For weeks after the announcement on June 9th there have been many rumors that Rogers would be consumer savvy and make their rate plans on par with AT&T in the US. At $30 per month for unlimited data downloads the iPhone is very attractive. If you have ever played with it you would know that the web experience is amazing. You can view webpages just as they are on your home computer. Heck you can download and watch YouTUBE videos. Thats a lot of data. The cheapest plan allows only 400MB of data download!!! I can go through that in a few hours. Thats ridiculous! The most expensive plan is $115 a month and allows 2GB. Thats incredibly expensive.

Cool stuff in January. January 21, 2008 at 8:15 pm

A few big events happened since the beginning of January that I haven’t had a chance to comment about. I have been meaning to talk about them but see my next post for the reasoning. The first event was the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and the week after that was MacWorld . Since I am a technology nut I feel I need to comment on some of the things that deserve to be talked about.

iOpinion on iPhone October 4, 2007 at 1:01 am

Well as a Canadian I don’t have access to Apples iPhone. But as an Apple fanboy and a technology zealot I really want one. And over the past weeks Apple has really got a lot of heat about the iPhone and its business practices. Well if anybody cares here are my 2 cents.
