CTIA wireless and automated calling…?

Wow, forget spam mail… I just got an automated phone call and message left on my cell from CTIA (see CTIA.org) regarding the coming CTIA wireless IT show… which, by the way, I’m already registered to attend so why they decided to call me to remind me to attend is beyond me. Add to the fact that the wireless industry association is now sending automated, recorded calls TO MY CELL PHONE and I’m downright annoyed… nice move CTIA… NOT!

Keep that N95 safe with the Nokia wrist band

A rather odd find but nonetheless quite cool.. Nokia has a product for sale called the wrist band. Simply put, its a sports band type of garment that is designed to keep your smartphone safe and in place while you work out! Going for a jog… simply slide on the wrist band and tuck your Nokia N95 safely inside… ok ,you could put your iPhone in there instead but that would be a bit hypocritical wouldn’t it?? Thanks to Phil over at the S60 blogs for the heads-up on this one!

The Tech traveler – why not the Nokia N95

I noticed an article in USA Today the other day and it chronicled the journey of tech savvy travelers and discussed the technologies used. The techies used the notebook, blackberry, iPod, a 3G wireless router for sharing Wi-Fi and took advantage of wireless resources, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and other enabling technologies. All these gadgets were used to enable quick check-in at the airport and hotels, mapping and routing, reservations, and the all important entertainment. Inside I was laughing because I had to ask myself why on earth would such a tech-savvy professional tote all these gadgets around when one simple device – The Nokia N95 – could accomplish everything and more! LOL

On the Bandwagon

Off topic… I may be relatively new to Colorado but I’ve quickly become a huge fan of the Rockies this year. It’s been hard not to with such a fantastic, young team. I’ve taken the kids to a number of games at Coors Field and I wish I could attend this final week-end but a travel gig on Sunday is preventing me from that – along with a planned trip to Estes Park to catch the annual elk buggeling spectacle.. stay tuned for some pics and vids from that one! (Brian from TerraGo… are you going to be up there???) Anyway, here’s to the Rockies opening up a can of Whop-a@#$ on Arizona this week-end and extending the amazing streak to 15. PS: If your in Denver and heading to the game tonight and need a side-kick let me know ;0)
