My 2 year old son’s first Voice Memo’s on my iPhone 3GS

Feeling quite at home on the iPhone’s unique touch-screen interface after having owned a iPod Touch for well over a year, Joshua, my almost three year old son quickly wanted to get his hands on my new iPhone 3GS. Once I showed him once how to record audio in the new Voice Memo app, he quickly got the hang of it and started recording some clips.

These are two of my favourites from the past week.

Goodbye iPod Touch, Hello iPhone 3GS

Today marks an important day. I’m finally getting an iPhone

Just over 4 hours ago I sold my 32GB 1st Gen iPod Touch.
When it was purchased on March 14, 2008, I paid $759.
492 days later I sold it for $431 on TradeMe
The difference for the 492 days use? Only $328.
That’s only $0.67 per day.

Less the cost of selling my Motorola V360V mobile phone for $110.
So that’s $531 to go towards the $899 purchase price of the iPhone 3GS on a $40 per month contract with Vodafone.
So the iPhone 3GS itself is only costing me $368.

I’m expecting delivery of my brand new iPhone 3GS tomorrow from Vodafone NZ
They oversold their second batch hence why I’ve had to wait nearly a week to receive my order.

So you can expect more videos, photos, mobile uploads, emails, Skype chats, Facebook updates and tweets from me now that I’ll have 24/7 access to the internet.
I’ll also be able to post random stuff on this blog from anywhere, so lookout world.

WordPress for iPhone finally working

Checking the WordPress for iPhone app on my iPod Touch tonight I was happily surprised to finally see it working.

There was some XML error message I used to get while trying to connect to my WordPress blogs.

So this is officially my first blog post on adrianhodge.com from my iPod Touch On my lounge room couch.

Isn’t technology wonderful?

Apple iPhone

I want one.. Due out in America in June, so we can expect to see it sometime next year most probably.
Apparently going to be hugely expensive, so I can only assume that when it hits NZ it’ll be the same price as a deposit on a house!

Some of the coolest things you can’t even see on the iPhone, it’s inside.
Like the sensor that if you have turned the iPhone from portrait to landscape and adjusts the screen display to match. Or the sensor that disables and turns off the touch screen when you bring the iPhone up to your ear to receive a call. Or the light sensitivity sensor that adjusts the screen brightness as the ambient light changes around the iPhone.
