Today I eagerly awaited the start of the WWDC, all day waiting to hear what everyone knew would be announced… the (trumpets) 3G iPhone!
I watched the live report on Engagdet… impatiently reloading the page every few seconds as I lay on the couch with Jack. I sat through many notes on neat new applications and features and magical clouds until finally, I saw what I was waiting for…
Every little phrase that popped up, every picture, left me more excited. It looks awesome! Every feature that popped up was what I had been waiting for since the first version. Still I kept hitting the reload button, begging Steve to say it would be released today. I was poised, ready to fly out the door at any moment (well, poised in my mind, I was really on the couch cuddled with the Mac & Jack). But, no, he didn’t say this. Instead, he said July 11?? No! That is more than a month!
So, now I am left to look longingly at specs and photos.. waiting once again. Oh well, maybe it is better this way… paycheck wise anyhow. I refuse to camp out with the other iCrazed people though… hopefully they will have plenty in stock. I kind of think they will, considering they have been sold out of 2G iPhones for weeks now. And it didn’t seem that hard to get them here when they were first released… of course, the first release was much more expensive. I also have a feeling there are already some phones at the store. While waiting impatiently for the announcement I called the Southpoint store and asked if it would be released today. I was told, “I’m not sure, I am still awaiting updates on when it is going to come out” rather than being told they don’t have them yet.
So last week Sean and I went to Tiger Direct with the innocent intention of buying a can of compressed air to clean out his mom’s computer. However, while we were there Sean spotted a computer case that he really liked. We had been talking about building him a new system for ages; the current one is getting pretty old. Since he liked the case so much I told him to go ahead and get it… thinking it would be just the first piece of a computer, and we would buy the rest in a month or so.
Well, it didn’t really turn out that way… the other night I gave in and we went ahead and ordered all of the components. He seems really happy, and I must admit I am a little jealous. We also ordered a couple copies of Age of Conan, a new MMO we want to try out.
I won’t go into the system details of Sean’s new rig, I will leave that for him to post about once he has it up and running. The majority of the components should arrive Monday, hopefully everything will go together without incident and he can have it up and running that night.
My own computer may need some upgrades to run Conan well… we will see how it goes. I am pretty sure it will run the game, but probably at low settings. I can’t really justify upgrading though, unless I really get into Conan or something. I have barely touched my desktop since getting Mr. Mac.
But that is pretty much the only exciting thing going on for us right now. Tonight we will hang out at home and watch some anime with George, the rest of our weekend can be spent happily relaxing at home. This is the first time in months that we will have a free weekend to ourselves (not counting honeymoon of course). I bet it won’t stay that way though…
