So yesterday Candace and I were outside and noticed a little snake trying to eat a small frog. The snake wasn't actually able to swallow te frog and eventualy the frog got away. Here is a picture of Candace holding the snake before putting back in the yard.

 

I took a bunch of pictures of the snake trying to swallow the frog, they can be found in the Photo Album.

So, for the second time in my life I have purchased a cell phone. My first ever cell phone was a Star Tak which broke on my first trip anywhere. I'm hoping for a longer life with this phone. I wouldn't have even purchased this phone except David asked me to make sure I had a backup plan for an Internet connection when I move in December.

The specs on this Phone/PDA/GPS are pretty impressive, but had I known about the upcoming release of the HTC P3350 Polaris I might have waited a few weeks.

The feature I'm most excited about is the built in GPS, I've been wanting to get one for awhile but don't travel enough to justify a special purpose device like a GPS. I'm sure Shane and I will put it too some good use in Ft. Myers since we will both be new to the area.

The big features for me are:

  • Windows Mobile 5/6
  • Quad-Band cellular phone (world wide support for GSM)
  • Recharge off of a USB connection
  • Supports tethering
  • Supports Bluetooth
  • Supports GPS
  • Supports Direct-Push Email
    (Basically my email, calendar, contacts, and task list will stay in sync between my desktop, notebook, phone, and web app)

 

So, now I guess I'm ready to join the rest of the cell phone carrying world.
