telecom, technology and the occasional floobergeist

I’ve got an abundance of bits and pieces of canadian telecom and internet experience, and I am thrilled to be in a place in time when all is changing, technology is developing, and the status quo is being disrupted. 

Floobergeist is a word that is beginning to defy definition.  The more I roll that smooth pebble around, the more it becomes to mean. Floobergeist started out as the magic dust that turns dreams into ideas.  And then it began to encompass the zing that happens when you have conversations about those ideas. And now, it’s the whole evolution from dream to conversation, with each step improving the later and the former along the way.

Everyone aspires to good conversations. They can lead you to adventures you’ve never imagined, and to people you can twig with.

Let’s have a good conversation…


My New Blackberry 8830 - Pearl

I’ve just become the proud parent to a Pearl. Finally. :-)
After making the decision, and second guessing myself for the past few days, I think I’m glad. I like the size, and the weight; last night we bonded a little. It’s so very different from all the other Blackberry phones that I’ve had over the past [10] years, that it’s hard to make comparisons.
I’m getting used to the *nipple*. If you’ve got one, you know what I mean. If you don’t - it’s the little nubbin that has replaced the track wheel of the olden days.

I’m totally addicted to the camera (of course) and I’m utterly peeved that Rim decided to change the size of the headset jack. Who in their right mind uses a 3.5 mm headset jack!?!? Arggh.
I’m going to add music, to see how the sound is, and I’m already using the Facebook app that generously came pre-loaded. How’s that for work productivity? ;-)

I can’t wait to give the voice dialing a whirl. Now that’s an improvement that I’m looking forward to. And I don’t even mind the suretype keypad any more. (i’ve been using one for the past years now anyways.

Stay tuned to see how well the berry and mac play together. Word is that the bluetooth connectivity is out of this world.
