iPhone 4…

by Kyle Smith

Well, I finally got it! I picked it up @ best buy this morning with no crowds at all. After all the mess I went through online with apple and AT&T, it’s shocking how low key and easy it was to pre order at best buy (granted it was the store in Lake Jackson). And as a matter of fact this post is from my new iPhone, yea!

Just give me the iPhone already…

by Kyle Smith

Well, I’ve been trying to get the stupid iPhone 4 all morning. The Apple site seems to do fine until it hits the AT&T part of the process…..ugh. I HATE AT&T. This photo sums up my morning of trying to get the iPhone 4:

Technology is a distraction to our democracy…

by Kyle Smith

I was reading a recent Yahoo! tech blog about Obama’s recent commencement speech where he discusses how technology (iPads, iPhones, iPods, Xbox, PS3) is a “…distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation. So all of this is not only putting pressure on you; it’s putting new pressure on our country and on our democracy…”

Now I’ll be the first to say that as a parent you should make your kid put down the controller everynow and then and exercise, read or do something “productive”, but really???? pressure on our democracy? c’mon.

I know what he was doing, he was trying to throw in those catch phrases and hot topics into his “relevant” speech but I think dismissing the Xbox and iPods to a graduating college class might be the wrong audience for that. His hip, current persona is slowly fading and it’s only a matter of time before everyone starts to realize he’s just another middle-aged politician willing to say and promise anything for a vote.

The irony is that he’s saying how much of a distraction all these technological devices are yet, wasn’t he the one throwing a fit about having to give up his blackberry when he took office?? Newsflash…Blackberrys and iPhones are the same…except iPhones blow blackberry outta the water.

And are TV’s next? They’re just as much of a distraction. Laptops. GPS. Blu-Ray players. I guess anything you plug into the wall is a distraction and is putting pressure on our democracy….especially anything the government can’t control the message through…ugh….politics. And why would you take shots at both Microsoft and Apple, he must have stock in Acer…..

College Humor

by Kyle Smith

So I stumbled across this site the other day called College Humor. Though there is some not so great stuff on there, you really can find some funny videos. I like youtube, but there’s just so much crap on it that sometimes it’s hard to find anything worth watching. So here are some funny videos I’ve found on College Humor…

Summer Time…

by Kyle Smith

I’ve actually been able to take some photos lately just for the heck of it. Since I’m constantly taking photos at work or doing some form of wedding photography, I rarely want to take photos in my spare time. Here’s some photos from the past week (most of them are straight out of the camera)…
