I'll wait.

You've read how I covet the iPhone 4, right? Well, with all the brouhaha over the antenna, I thought I'd wait for the next generation of the iPhone 4. If I can wait that long, that is! mrgreen

You've also read how I covet the iPad, right? Well, since the iPhone 4 is not going to be in my grubby little hands any time soon, I'll put every little penny I make in the little piggy bank for the iPad then! mrgreen

Happy Independence Day

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. ~ Abraham Lincoln

I want an iPhone 4!

I just read a news article over at The Register about the new wave of superphones challenging the iPhone 4. For those of us who love our iPhones and are drooling over the new iPhone 4, we are not concerned. Those superphones may be fancier and whatever, but it is still not Apple! Right?

The iPhone 4 camera at 5 megapixel and one that takes pictures from either the front or the back, video recording in HD, a display resolution of 960 x 440, and best of all, video calling, well, those are reasons enough for an upgrade! For me, that is!

June 24, cannot come soon enough!

Copy your blog or website to your hard drive

It has been a while since I made a copy of each of my blogs, but one of the most useful tools I have found for keeping a copy of my blogs and home business web site is HTTrack.

It copies every thing that is on your blog/site. Everything. After you have copied your blog/site to your hard drive, you can browse through your blog/site offline as if you are browsing it while online. All the links to different parts of your blog/site works. Of course, if you have a link that leads to an external site, you can't go there if you are offline! mrgreen But every thing else looks exactly like your blog/site, yes, the template and the content together.

This tool is really useful because so many of us give up blogging. After a while you forget your log in ID, you forget your password, and you even forget you ever had a blog. So instead of leaving your blog unattended or deleting it completely (do NOT waste all the time and effort you put into your blog!) keep a copy of the blog on your hard drive.

Keep a copy of your blog or blogs. Do not delete them and leave them in the big dumpster in cyber space!

Blogging on the Road

The camera on the iPhone leaves much to be desired but with the help of the right photo app a picture can be good enough to be uploaded and posted to a blog post.

Time spent in a car on a long road trip can be put to good use when you have an iPhone.

It rained part of the way on Highway 99 and the clouds looked beautiful. With the iPhone camera, a photo app, a blogging app and a 3g connection, the picture of the rain clouds is now a blog post.

I love my IPhone! But I still want an iPad! ;-)
