Reflections on Steve Jobs

Tonight as I sat on the couch reading the news coverage on Steve Jobs’ passing, it struck me why I’m enamored with Apple’s products. It’s not that I’m a fanboy (okay, I might be on the edge of being one..) — it’s because of the culture set in place by Steve Jobs. He didn’t just […]

AT&T Redemption

I previously wrote about my woes with AT&T. I’m happy to report that they’ve done the right thing! After a horrible exchange with their email support team, I called and spoke with a woman who reassured me I was eligible for the regular upgrade. She informed me I’d have to visit an AT&T store though.. […]

AT&T.. Why Must You Upset Me So?

I’ve been an AT&T customer for years. And by years, I mean 12+ years. I was an old AT&T Wireless customer back in high school and early college, and then Southwestern Bell/Cingular, and now AT&T again. I’ve not had any complaints with them.. until now. Flash back to two summers ago. I’m attending TBA/TODA/TCDA with […]

There’s no pleasing this bunch. Apple releases the iPhone. Within two days, there are a plethora of posts throughout the fanboy websites and blogs containing […]

A Nice Surprise

I went to San Antonio on business for a few days. Every summer, my company attends the Texas Bandmasters, Texas Choral Directors, and Texas Orchestra Directors conventions. For the past five years, I’ve simply gone down for our booth setup and flown back on the first day of the convention. It works out fairly well; […]

A Cell Phone Freak’s History

I was daydreaming about my upcoming iPhone purchase the other day and it really got me thinking about my cell phone history. Unsurprisingly, I’ve had quite a few cell phones. My first cell phone was a Sony CM-H888 on the old AT&T Wireless I believe. I got that phone my junior year in high school. […]
