iPhone update

Dear iPhone 4 owner,
You are eligible to receive an iPhone 4 Bumper or a select third-party case from Apple at no charge.
Follow these steps to apply for a Bumper or case:
Launch the app on your iPhone 4 and sign in using youriTunes Store account.
Select your Bumper or case.

I wonder if I'll bother trying to get a refund on the case I bought while I was waiting in line for my iPhone? I haven't downloaded the app yet. Signal strength just hasn't been a problem for me. I pretty much just use wifi unless I'm in the car. Which this month was a lot.

I think uploading photos from the road on the 4th of July used up a lot of my data allocation. I do see a lot of people who talk on the phone constantly. The maintenance man in my office building is talking on the phone every time I see him in the hall or in the lobby. I suppose that demographic outnumbers me and my friends who use our phones like pocketknives -- an indispensable tool that is always at hand. We've really gotten away from voice communication entirely. We use text messages to set up in-person meetings. I think in many ways this has to be better than just talking on the phone.

I use my phone like this just about every day.

And like this.

Usually my phone is sitting on my desk at work, charging off the USB port on my plastic laptop, popping up little notifications to let me know the world is still turning outside that windowless room. I don't hold it at all.

But the people at College Humor think you should hold it like this. Whatever works for you.

Last night I held my iPhone a few inches from my face while I watched Tim Minchin YouTube videos until I fell asleep. I switched to the ninja theme on Gmail this week and wanted to hear him sing "only a ninja can sneak up on another ninja." It's nice to be able to curl up in the pillows and be entertained to your last conscious thought. I watched/listened to Mitsubishi Colt for the first time last night and I like it very much.
