Question to VZWSo, Verizon, I have a question for you. You see it fit to charge me $1.99/min to make a call from the US Virgin Islands, but you do not charge extra for data usage. You realize that I will now use skype and get the same result, don't you? Your customer service rep was polite, but your billing department is filled with idiots.
New laptop (why Steve Jobs can suck it)I recently purchased a new notebook, an HP. I have always been treated well by HP. I took my first and second laptops to Iraq. One made it back, the other was the only casualty after being left in the trunk of a HMMW-V that was hit by an IED.
If you go back, you'll note that I purchased an iPhone in my past. I own a 3G. Since getting the thing, my love for it has faltered. I now hate the damn thing. iOS4 runs pathetically slow on it, and this iPhone 4 debacle has taught me this: Apple can have really good ideas, but they should trust others to implement them.
Not a fan of gears of warI gave gears a good try. I tried to look past its hard to understand its point of view issues and clunky mechanics. I just can not get into the game...at all. If it gets better later on, tough shit for me I guess.
Border Patrol InterviewI have my oral interview for Border Patrol selection of Friday. I hope I get selected, because I have decided that I must do something other than remain a civilian. If CPB doesn't take me, I going back in the Army.
