Run at the Gateway Arch

A short run to be sure, I needed to kill 15 minutes while the hotel got breakfast ready.

Freezing run

Had a ton of pizza last night and this morning and needed to burn it off. Incredibly cold.

Morning run

Did this run yesterday before work. Key to running in the morning is to have all running gear laid out of head time.

Where's the global warming at?

Well, we just survived a week that featured back to back negative double digit days which begs the question: Where is all the global warming at? Oh yeah, that's right, it's a total sham perpetuated by leftist environmental socialists trying to tear down industry and the American way of life. It's getting colder, folks, not warmer, so fire up your SUV and go for a long drive. We need all the heat we can get.

Incognito: No Safari killer here

Well, I tried the new browser for the iPhone, incognito, and it basically does what it says: browse websites without leaving a trace of where you went. It is NOT a replacement for Safari in any respect (unless you go to a lot of shady websites and let other people use your phone). There's no multiple tabs for starters (and finishers because if you can't launch another page you can only do so much). Also there are no bookmarks, and the title bar doesn't disappear, wasting precious limited iPhone screen real estate. The zooming worked as good as Safari, and the screen rotates if you enable it, so it's functional enough. Granted, this is a 1.0 product so it may get better. I only tried Incognito because Safari crashes once every ten minutes or so and I was desperate to try anything new. I guess the best thing about this app is I appreciate Safari a lot more then I used too, but if I wanted that feeling I could have just whipped out my old Treo. I'll just wait until Google releases a mobile Chrome browser for the iPhone. I'm sure it will come out right around the time the 32GB iPhone comes out.

First run of 2009 (Yikes)

Wow it's been a LONG time since my last run. The Chicago winter hasn't helped, but no excuses! I'm in a weight loss competition at work and I need to burn the extra calories. I really need to find my Nike ski mask again or buy another the wind was so cold. Every other part of my body was fine since it was covered. Going for a run in this kind of weather is like going on a spacewalk. Still, I'd rather run outside then on a fake treadmill anyday.

AT&T slowing EDGE to force customers to switch to 3G? - Engadget

http://i.engadget.com/2009/01/07/atandt-slowing-edge-to-force-customers-to-switch-to-3g/

Yeah, I'd love to switch to a 3G iPhone, preferably one that had 32 GB
of storage. But after that sham of a Macworld keynote yesterday, who
knows when that will be. So, I'm just going to hang on to my EDGE
iPhone until it breaks, or the 32 GB model mysteriously appears,
whichever comes first.
