Building the Perfect CellPhone

I went with the BlackJack because of all the features:

Product Features

  • Quad-band/3G smartphone with Windows Mobile 6 for MS Office document editing and easy Outlook email and contacts
    Okay, this doesn’t make a lot of difference but its a good thing, I swear 🙂 I have to find out if Open Office docs work, since it works with Office stuff, though.
  • Internal GPS receiver with support for TeleNav software; music and video downloads and streams via AT&T Mobile Music and Cellular Video
    Once again, not a necessity, but the GPS will come in handy for road trips. It only costing $10 a month through AT&T is a nice deal
  • Full QWERTY keyboard; Bluetooth stereo music streaming; 2.0 megapixel camera; MicroSD expansion
    QWERTY was a requirement for me. I love the way it works. Camera and expandable memory was another. My current microSD card works great with it too 🙂
  • Up to 7 hours of talk time, up to 14 days of standby time
    Okay, I don’t talk a lot, but I do a lot of texting, I rely on my cellphone as my “landline”, but I don’t want to have to constantly have my phone on a charger. What’s the point of a cellphone if its constantly plugged into the wall?
  • Includes: Charger, USB Cable, Battery and Getting Started CD
    Charger, battery, and USB cable are getting a lot of use. The CD? *snort* I installed the syncing program and then never looked at it again, 😆

Even with this lovely little phone, though, I’m finding myself longing for a few things. One thing: I’m a girl, and I love girly things. The pinker, the better. I’m also in need of a car charger. I spend more time in a vehicle now that my daughter is in school and I transport her to and from. I’m also wanting to get more active again, and since I’ve got the 2-gig MicroSD card, I want to put it to use with music. That means I need to find myself some either Bluetooth headphones, or one that plugs into the same port that the sync cord and charger go into.

Life’s Not Always Beautiful

Theme: Beautiful

Okay, I took the theme literally, and made a video of things I find beautiful, or things that make me beautiful :lol:. Any explanations will be given upon request 🙂 Oh!! And it sucks because Windows Movie Maker kept locking up on me when I tried to add transitions and credits/inserts and things. 🙁
