It continues....

....the insanity of buy tech accessories for stuff I don't own or isn't for personal reason reasons. :crazy:

The motivator this time?

I got a Motorola KRZR K1m for work. Using the EC-500, calls to my deskphone will optionally also ring through to this cell phone. It was partly because the on call cellphone will go away, with the number forwarding to either a person's work or personal cellphone when it is their week on call. I didn't want those calls going to a personal cellphone.

And, our workgroup seems to be standardizing on the KRZR (other units had gotten RAZRs, but the KRZR wasn't availble then).

I got the phone on Tuesday. One of the first problems is they had no belt holster available for it, the generic non-OEM one they stocked interfered with the side buttons. So, I went looking on eBay for one. Later I decided to take the plunge and buy a microSD card for it, though I didn't immediately know why....don't really need to use the camera part that much, and I already don't use my iPods much right now. Though the fact that I can use the MP3 player without headphones might be okay.

But, then I discovered that my blackberry charger didn't charge the phone overnight...at all. Turns out dual charger does some kind of sensing, and didn't like the KRZR....while it would let it have power to run plugged in, it didn't give it power to charge. Fortunately it doesn't take long to charge on the supplied charger, and battery life is great...so I can charge it up once in a while at work. Plus the 'dumber' blackberry travel charger will probably work, otherwise I do have other USB plug style chargers available from other gadgets that might work.

So, I'm not buying another charger for it...and if I were, I'd probably make work pick that up.... &#59;)

But back to the phone. It doesn't have a regular 2.5 jack on it, and it didn't come with a mini-USB to 2.5 adapter. And, the adapter isn't cheap, but I prefer over-head type headsets, because in ear pieces don't stay in my ear and my eyeglasses are painful enough, that I don't need clip on ear or temple types adding to that discomfort. And, the phone doesn't support stereo bluetooth headsets, and again would require the use of a special stereo headphone, or the adapter. Their special headphones is cheaper than the adapter. Though if I got the adapter, I could use my big over ear noise reduction headphones....though it sure would look strange.

Searching around, I found that they do make an over-head bluetooth headset....so late last night, I went online and found a place that had this as well as the special stereo headphones for the KRZR....and order them.

Now to see if I can geek out the sounds it makes.... &#59;D

Oh yeah, I have already set aside ~1.5GB of MP3s that I plan to load on to the 2GB microSD card that I've ordered for it.... )-o

Oxy-Nickel Battery Compatibility

Made a bad discovery today....Oxy-Nickel batteries don't work in everything.

I was at something tonight, and thought about taking a digital camera with me....but not my main one. So, I dug out the old Konica-Minolta Dimage X20. And, not being sure of the battery that was in it...I grabbed a pack of Oxy-Nickel batteries and popped those in.

It acted kind of weird as I went through the setup (mainly to update the clock on it). But, didn't think much else about it.

Until I reached for the camera to try to take a show with it. It wouldn't work. :##

:crazy:

...because I just bought a license for this software, even though I don't yet own any Macs.

Thing is I'm looking forward to going on a trip soon, and I'm very likely going to take my work laptop with me. I hopefully have it sufficiently tweaked so I can do work while on holidays )-o

And, I decided that I should also look at what things I would like on it to fit my non-work needs.

The only other two areas that are probably missing from things are MSMoney and stuff related to digital photography.

SanDisk Cruzer Micro (2GB) w/U3

Yesterday I bought one of these from Best Buy. I had been on the fence for getting one for a while, since floppy drives are starting to get scare and CDs aren't practical. And, there'll be times where using the Internet be an option, either.

But, it came down to size for price and convenience. I have an iPod Shuffle, and I do have most of it set aside for space...but I never actually use it for data, because it isn't all that practical. I don't like the music part of it that much and having to deal with a cap that I can lose reduces my desire to actually carry it around.

During my recent trip, I got to thinking that there should be some way to better synchronize the data for RoboForm between my computers. And, read about GoodSync and later the Pass2Go product. Seemed the way to go with this might be a USB Flash Key, and possibly one with U3. Even though U3 isn't Mac, but then RoboForm isn't available for the Mac yet and I don't currently own one yet. But, I'm contemplating one to replace my old laptop....inaddition to the HTmac, I've been talking about building

Another Daylight Saving Time Update

Link: http://webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/index.html

Well, another Spring Forward has arrived and I think I have updated enough clocks to get by..... :lalala:

Some how I feel I didn't update quite as many clocks as I normally do....though it could be that I have a lot more gadgets that update automatically, coupled with the pile of gadgets that due to my current situation aren't getting the attention they used to.

360 Camera

Link: http://www.ubergizmo.com/15/archives/2006/02/360_camera_concept.html

I've been known to get the urge to take panaromic shots with my camera....

....sometimes to show of the mess that is home.

....or work.

....or when traveling....

Though it is a lot of work...so that cuts on the amount of playing around I do with picture taking.

But, perhaps a gadget like this would help me do it more often (and get better results &#59;D)

My New Desktop Wallpaper

I decided it was time to update the wallpaper on my computer, and I was thinking I wanted something 'cruise' themed. Though I couldn't find anything online, when I thought to myself...haven't I shot anything during any of my cruises that might do the trick.

I found this image....scaled and cropped to fit my 1280x1024 desktop, and it looks great.

The Arch at Cabo San Lucas

Though this image is scaled down even further to fit the constraints of my blogging package....

The wallpaper is available for download from my Photo Gallery

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
