Yay for you!
I'm thinking about getting the new blackberry. Someone talk me into or out of it.

I would wait and see. Why should you be their guinea pig?
You also sound like you like your apps... there won't be many at first.
I'd do it in a heartbeat if it was just email and no expensive data plan. If I could save money I'd do it... my smart phone is a luxury expense for sure.

I loved my old blackberry more than my droid or iphone and I can still use my apps on both of those on wifi. I'm just starting to feel like I'm paying for a toy I could still have separately from a phone. You're very right about being a guinea pig tho. So far IMO their roll out and ad campaign suck. My initial plan was to reactivate my droid. I don't like my iPhone except for music

I think it is funny the bad reviews the new Blackberry is getting. "It's camera sucks" or "It doesn't do this complete non-phone feature well at all"
1) Decent reception
2) Significant battery life (I don't need a wafer thin phone, I need a phone that goes 3 days on a charge
4) Weather (maybe)
That's all that I really need.

State of the art image processing

I bought a padcaster yesterday, and light and lens adapter.
I felt inspired after watching Searching for Sugarman! iPad has an app that makes an effect for movies that is identical to 16mm film.
Next year (in class) we will be trying short films in addition to documentaries.
Does anyone else use their iPad for filming?
8009. arkymalarky - 3/21/2013 8:47:13 PM
That sounds great. I haven't but I'll check it out

It's pretty amazing what iPads do.

Climate change in my backyard...
For the past week a pair of white-winged doves has been joining the usual mourning doves for snacks on the patio. Until recent years white wings were associated primarily with Mexico and the Rio Grande valley. They have been established in Houston for a few years and now at least two have moved another 100 miles farther north. Also we've had a really rare bird my guides say is a ringed turtle-dove. Never heard of such. Larger than the other doves, solid beige instead of mottled gray and with a black swoosh on the back of the neck and a squared off tail instead of a pointed one. Meantime the area has been designated in severe drought condition. I believe it. One of our oaks is dead and another is shedding bark, Need to find an arborist for advice. Damn.

I'm going back to my droid on Monday. I can't wait. 3i, you need to try an app called Sherpa. It works great, similar to Siri.
