Blackberry Storm

Blackberry App. World Store

By TechnologyNo Comments

Blackberry have released an App. World Store. I couldn’t resist downloading it to have a look. I needed a bit of help from Vodafone, which was provided in the form of a video:

It sounded good, but I was dissapointed. The apps were mainly american and although it was suppose to be localised to the UK there were no apps from providers I would have liked including: Pink News, BBC, , C4 as well as various others. Perhaps with time these organisations will create an app. for Black Berry.

In addition to this, the apps that weren’t free where priced in dollars – how am I suppose to know what these are going to cost me in GBP? It was positive though to know they use PayPal as the payment method.

I guess time will tell with the applications that they add.

Geeky regards,

Ups and Downs

By Friends & Family, Health, Life, Love & Relationships, Paganism, Shopping, Technology, Thinking2 Comments

The weekend started really on Saturday. David and I had arranged to have a chat following the weekend prior (see Job Interview & David).

I had picked up my new BlackBerry Storm (see The phone we forgot) prior to setting out to drive to his, an Up. The Down about this was that as I had choose to keep my existing mobile number I had to wait for the PAC to transfer over, so the handset was unusable for 72 hours.

David jumped in the car to help me find parking. Once we had found it, we had to stay with the car until we were allowed to legally park there. David was initially closed. I had come open minded, but still with the one thought: that I am fed up arguing.

But what I didn’t count on was how I’d react and connect to David’s addictive energy once again. We ended up going out shopping (bought this fantastic t-shirt, I will have to post a pic!) and for a meal in the evening. The day and evening was amazing (Up), but somehow we didn’t manage to discuss the argument (a definite Down).

Sunday I head back home. I had promised my friend a reiki session (see Reiki one – Qualified) and had to prepare. I had a bath were I cleansed, protected and grounded my energies. I put some reiki healing energy in to some candles and collected my oils, the burner, the reiki-ed candles, crystals, etc. together.

The great thing about a reiki session is that you as the practitioner also get a reiki treatment too, so add that to the reiki I had done in the bath (cleansing, protecting & grounding) and I had a total of 2 reiki treatments. A definite Up.

Reiki is a stress-relief energy treatment. For more about how to destress please see my Relaxation post.

I would like to thank my friend for allowing me to give him some reiki treatment and for the nice food he bought me afterwards. Food is always a Up.

So that was my weekend, definitely more Ups than Downs!

The phone we forgot

By Shopping, Technology2 Comments

As you know I have recently been eyeing up a new phone for when my contract expires soon. I blogged about the latest phones and I decided on the iPhone.

The iPhone. Had quite a few things I wasn’t happy with (lack of bluetooth, no picture messages recieving or sending, etc.), but I thought I was going to have to pay over the odds and get used to not having these features.

However I forgot to consider the BlackBerry Storm! It has all the features I want including:

  • Touch-screen
  • QWERTY keyboard for writting text messages
  • Internet & Email
  • Good quality camera
  • So I spoke to friends, had a play with one and the verdict is: love it! Much better than the iPhone.

    So I shall have to get a move on, cancel my contract and switch providers with the fancy, sexy, wonderful BlackBerry Storm!

    Blog soon,
