Motorola Karma of DOOM!

July 31, 2009

What a wonderful day (not really). I am totally happy with my Motorola Karma now that Chewie roars when I have a text, the Cantina Band plays when someone calls, and Imperial Attack! lets me know I have a voicemail.

The Pig next door has sashimi grade tuna in the Meat Dept. (I know the manager, he swears I wasn’t seeing things).

I only have one more hour of sitting at this desk, wishing someone would email me.

These are gross.

Motorola Karma, week 1

July 31, 2009

I’m still undecided. I figured out how to delete pictures and multiple messages.

Still can’t figure out how to assign ring tones to people. Edited: yes I did.

It claims to have sounds for when I open and close my phone, I’ve selected them all, don’t hear a thing.

Vibrate sucks. We stared at it last night, you couldn’t hear it or see it. When I held it, there was one quick buzz. Unless you are holding it in your hand, vibrate is useless.

Battery life = suck; needs to be plugged in each night (a good idea anyways, but should it be down to the last battery bar?).

Calling is still kinda a hassle…most things are a bit of a hassle, lots of button pushing and scrolling around. Again, though, that could be just how cell phones are. I don’t know.

Above all, I still mostly really like the shape. I think I might try a Vu, though, to have some sort of basis for comparison.

ATT&T’s coverage isn’t remarkable – but again, no basis for comparison. If anything it seems inconsistent. For example, sitting at a bar last night, one minute I had some bars, the next I didn’t – from the same exact place. Again, could just be a normal cell phone thing.

Like that I can re-order the (icons/shortcuts) menu screen, so what I use most are the first four icons displayed.

People are still laughing, and amazed, that I done got myself a cell phone. Though I have texted while driving, it was at a red light, and I didn’t finish it until the next light. Will not answer, while I’m driving.

Well, I think I won’t, nobody’s called, yet. Mostly just texting. Fine with me. Who wants to interact with other humans anyways?? Not me! See you at the robot reservation, suckers!

Goodness it’s a doozie:

So far I’m getting (I’m not getting):

Because if there’s two things I like, it is drinking in my royal panties. And sometimes when you are drinking in your panties, a towel comes in handy.

MyManson phase began in high school, and continued into college. (How long does a phase last, anyways?) I stopped keeping tabs on him (I never kept tabs on him) years ago, but this headline caught my eye today:

Convicted cult leader Charles Manson has reached out to convicted music producer Phil Spector, suggesting that the two jailbirds collaborate on pop songs….Manson contacted Spector shortly after the producer arrived, dispatching a guard with a note. “[Manson] said he wanted him to come over to his [cell]…”

Ok that’s the lead-in, not a headline, but still. The mind boggles.
