It all started this morning when I left the Sheraton in Santa Monica for a quick bite before my 1:40 flight. I grabbed a cab from the hotel and asked to go to Rose Ave. & Main St. in Venice, since I’d Yelped myself one sweet spot.
The cab driver took me the wrong way and, in the interest of time, I asked to be dropped off immediately. He gave me an exasperated look through his rear view mirror, threw up his hands and sighed in frustration.
Once I stepped out of the cab, he started driving away. Was this a joke? My luggage was still stuck in his trunk and I, in utter disbelief, watched it leave with this @(#*#@* of a cab driver.
Amazingly, I happened to get dropped off at James’ Beach - a Venice fish taco joint that I recognized from I Love You, Man. As I walked towards the restaurant, I released my fury over the phone to the unlucky MetroCab dispatcher who happened to pick up.
Fast forward to 10:30, when I finally exit JFK and make the terrible, terrible, TERRIBLE decision to take the AirTrain. I know. Dumb. I emerged in Manhattan to end up taking a cab anyways to get to NJ.
The cab cost $88 and the flipping meter wasn’t working. I sat there with my <10% iPhone battery suffering through my obvious irritation (read: LOTS of tweeting, news reading & game playing). The cab driver called tech support and ran through troubleshooting for 20 minutes. In the end, he ended up taking me to an ATM 10 minutes away so I could give him cash.
I handed him the cash and ask for a fiver back. His response: “I have no cash. Everyone paid with card today.”
At that point? Whatever. I just need to get into a bed. Murphy’s Law.
-“Okay, come to Stubb’s.”
-“The one in the barn?”
-“No, that’s Emo’s. Stubb’s is behind the hotel”
-“Okay, see you outside the Hyatt in five.”
-“No no, the Hilton.”
-“The Hilton? Which one?”
-“The one on sixth.”
-“Sixth? What streets is that near?”
-“Fifth and- look, just Foursquare me, okay?”
A safe assumption to make when shopping in the App Store is that paid apps are better than the free ones (note: not their free counterparts). Better quality, smoother design, more intuitive UI, more advanced notification systems…
But with Social Networking apps, I find paid apps to be quite suspect. WHY can’t you monetize it without making me pay?!?
Have to say - once I got past that one terrible rep and the fact that they didn’t automatically get my new IMEI number from Apple when I had to replace my iPhone 4 last week, Asurion was quite good with replacing my (gulp) 4th iPhone 4.
My fifth one is on its way to me right NOW and will be in my hands before I head to LA on Wednesday.
Sigh… still no iPhone 4 insurance from AT&T? Well, at least I’m lucky enough to be able to replace this for $200 even though it was lost/stolen.
Per my Facebook friends’ recommendations, I am considering a leash for it. Know anyone who sells a neck or hand leash for the iPhone 4?
I’ve actually started to phase out of this sentiment, as my friends have learned that I much prefer texts, tweets & emails, only a few ever, EVER call me. Now I crave? value? reminisce? about the good ol’ spoken word exchanged in actual dialogue.
But yes - agree about voicemail. VM only causes me stress since I’m forced to spend time recording an awesome pre-recorded message for those I don’t want to talk to.
Nobody has time to chit-chat. Everyone’s usually on the go or in a place where they can’t easily hold a phone conversation but can still e-mail or text — a loud New York City street, at a restaurant, in a meeting, at a party, on the toilet.
Call me if it’s an emergency. If I don’t pick up, send me an e-mail or text. I guarantee I’ll receive it before I get your voicemail. And hey, it might save us from brain tumors.
T-Mobile USA remains an independent company. The acquisition is expected to be completed in approximately 12 months. We do not offer the iPhone. We offer cutting edge devices like the Samsung Galaxy S 4G and coming soon our new Sidekick 4G.
One point: because of the 3G differences, even if AT&T and Apple allowed for the iPhone to be opened up to run on T-Mobile’s network, it would only be at EDGE speeds.
