Baby's Got Phuturecam Back

30 March 2009 03:38

See that image above on the home page? It's back! To the uninitiated, back when this website was running on the old weblog engine, there was an image that simply showed whatever stuff that was captured by my computer's video card at any random moment when it's online. It went away when I introduced the new version of this website (the current iteration). Fans of the Phuturecam can stop with the textual harassment now that I brought it back.

We now return you to your normal scheduled programming.

People who complain about the ridiculous price plans for the iPhone that just made it to our shores via Maxis should get a little bit of perspective. For one, while a mobile phone is a necessity, the iPhone itself is not. It's a nice to have phone. Just like a car is a necessity for most of us, a BMW/Mercedez is not. If you can't afford the iPhone, there's always Sony Ericsson, Nokia, Samsung, LG, etc. just like there's Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, or heck, even Proton. As for the somewhat limited functionality of the iPhone as compared to others (MMS, 3G video calls, etc.), again a BMW doesn't exactly stack well against a hybrid Honda Civic in terms of gas mileage for instance, even though the former is pricier. Catch my drift?

So in case you're still stuck in Steve Job's reality distortion field or just being overly kiasu that you have to get the latest phone in town but can't due to the immenent recession, there ARE other cheaper alternatives out there. And stop preaching to those intent on getting the iPhone over others and just leave them to their own choice of device.

Now that I got that off my chest, if you'll excuse me, I'll be collecting my overpriced limited function portable telephone come March 21 to replace my previously overpriced 4 year old phone that's giving me callouses on my thumb from all the navigation done on its sticky joystick already.

I mistakenly paid Indah Water RM2,545 instead of RM25.45. Looks like I have to defer my disbursement of duit raya this Syawal. #FML
