Who would have ever guessed at the advent of the digital age that technology companies would have a hard time producing portable electronics?
With any new technology the process of early adoption always remains problematic. HTC will probably continue attempting to be a functional wireless device manufacturing company. At some point the company will need to ramp up production to meet real work demand. Sprint is struggling to have enough 4G devices in the marketplace.
Unless something new comes along in the next few weeks, I will keep waiting for the HTC EVO 4G to become available.
Everything could have been somewhat easy, but nothing in the real work every really works out that way. Rob and a few other people have noticed the number of posts on this weblog about the HTC EVO 4G. Then again Rob “The World’s Finest” tends to engage in the process of creating origami. Rob may or may not be the foremost connoisseur of paper based shuriken (ninja stars) on the planet. At some point, HTC will manage to produce enough of the HTC EVO 4G phones to make the commercially available online again for regular consumers who refuse to wait at stores for random delivers.
In other somewhat related news, this morning Andy from Chicago might have received a free bag of dog treats. In response to my low resolution camera phone powered by the Verizon Wireless network Andy was going to send HTC EVO 4G inspired high resolution photographs to my phone. Unfortunately, my handset cannot even begin to open an eight megapixel photograph.
I guess all random acts of kindness should be supported.
Even things that seemed relatively stable change periodically. However, I am still bitter my search for a proper sandwich on Thursday was decimated by the evil overloads of Quiznos (subs, soups, and salads) who discontinued meatball subs. Sometimes an individual might face a specific food hunger that can become almost overpowering. A specific food hunger can develop into the formational basis of a mission. Each mission develops with specific objectives and requirements. In this case, the mission involved the search for a sandwich.
Maybe now is a good time to move from thinking about the current mission to a more proactive attempt to understand all of the relevant history. As a retrospective sojourn into the nature of specific food hungers spending some time creating reflective prose seems to be almost necessary. During the course of the last year I have adopted a 2/3 vegetarian diet during breakfast and lunch. Alternatively, during the Lenten season I was able to adopt a completely vegetarian diet. Right now everyday is a struggle between a previous lifestyle and a healthier vegetarian diet.
In regards to the wallet situation; unbeknownst to me the wallet (now found) was located between the seats in the car. During the initially problematic search for the wallet a significant amount of cleaning occurred in both the living room and the basement. For some reason regardless of the amount of cleaning that occurs in the basement the realization of a clean basement never fully occurs. At some point in the future a garage sale will be required to facilitate realization of the new clean basement policy. Maybe having enough space to walk around while playing guitar will be personally inspiring or at least somewhat relaxing. Over the years, my collection of 80’s inspired metal (a word defining a musical genre) guitar pedals has been growing. Sometimes finding that signature guitar amplification sound of the past requires knowing the right settings for the right pedal.
Yesterday was an interesting day on the grind at work. The never ending wisdom of the crowd seemed to be outsourcing humanity without remorse or hesitation. Unbridled aggression without any purpose, logic, or reason rarely accomplishes anything meaningful. Maybe at that point even the most basic accomplishment would stand for something. A day or two of perspective might clean everything up and make even the most complex considerations appear well defined. The work week concluded last night without any significant revolutions. A self imposed cool down of twenty minutes seemed necessary at the end of the night.
In response to the evening the morning started out with a search for biscuits. Throughout the entire search for breakfast a Blu-ray/DVD combo package of James Cameron’s Avatar was waiting at home. Unfortunately, James had to wait as the hunt for completed survey questionnaires continued. At some point, the dissertation project will be complete. Until that major milestone is complete every weekend is devoted to a combination of cleaning the house and striving toward some degree of academic productivity.
Strangely enough the last week has involved discussions of mobile technology. Within the discussion the relative merits of both BlackBerry devices and various Droid (Android) systems received consideration. Most of the discussion and consideration about the mobile devices centered on a combination of debating the merits of electronic mail (email) and mobile internet access. Right now the technological trajectory seems to be leading up to the inevitable purchase of a BlackBerry device.
Andy from Chicago provided an interesting observation about the number of tacos that could be consumed within a single year. Without question this weekend will include a few tacos and probably a few football games. Weekends typically provide two solid days of reprieve from the standard operating procedures of the work week.
Here is a randomly assorted list of shows that have been programmed into the digital video recording (DVR) device. Most of the shows are currently being broadcast, but some of the shows have been canceled. Somehow the DVR list does not automatically adjust to reflect the most current broadcast lineup. Eventually somebody will develop an algorithm that would use predictive preference based analysis to suggest alternative viewing material. .
