The Droid & Droid Eris

Posted in electronics by krisyee on November 5, 2009

I can’t get into too much detail about this since it’s technically not out yet, but tomorrow Motorola’s Droid phone launches in all Verizon Wireless retail stores along with HTC’s Droid Eris. I’ve never played with a Google Android phone until recently and I have to say that the Motorola Droid is pretty dope. The Eclair software (Android 2.0 OS) has some advantages over the Cupcake software (Android 1.5 OS) but they’re both pretty responsive. The Android software allows you to create your own apps for your mobile device and also share your apps in the Android Market (to find out more about that, check out

I have to say that this is probably one of the biggest launches for VZDub and I get the privilege of being at work at 6am for it. Yay…so for all you tech savvy people that are planning on getting it, make sure you get there early. Unlike our Storm launch last year, we’re ready and lines are expected. First come first serve! Doors open at 7am!

See you bright and early in the morning!

Google x VZW= iDon’t

Posted in electronics by krisyee on October 21, 2009

From a marketing perspective this iDon’t campaign is pretty good. There’s a lot of talk about it and everyone and their mama is coming into the store asking when we’re getting the android phone and what it’s going to look like. I really don’t know what it looks like or when it’s coming out but I assume soon considering they’re starting to advertise. I think this pretty much sums up the rumors about the iPhone coming to VZW, but you never know. I’m thinking 2011 for that one.

PS- Get ready for VZW having 4G next summer!

Blackberry Storm 2

Posted in Uncategorized by krisyee on September 25, 2009

I work in the cell phone industry. I have a Blackberry Storm. I have some customers that LOVE it, while others DESPISE it.

I’ve been pretty patient with mine and have no problems. I’ve thought about going to the Blackberry Tour so that I’d have a physical keyboard again, but I may just wait for the Blackberry Storm 2. It should be coming out SOON but I don’t have an exact date.

Check out this video of the comparison between the two.

Oh and btw, the guy that did the video is hella funny. He also has another video where he shows how fast he can type on the Storm 2.

Okay, here’s another video that describes more of the features.

Black Friday Toys

Posted in Uncategorized by krisyee on December 2, 2008
My new toy I got on Black Friday at Best Buy.
(Photo taken with my Canon Powershot SD750)
My first SLR! I was thinking about getting the Canon Rebel XSi, but I didn’t feel like I needed a 12.1 mega pixel camera. So I was trying to choose between this one and the Nikon D60 which was a little cheaper. I ended up getting this one because I like Canon’s and it just felt better in my hands. It was on sale and I had a $100 gift card. It was $30 cheaper online so I was planning to go back to get a price adjustment. Then on Sunday I checked online one last time before I was going to get the price adjustment and it was almost $100 cheaper! So I ended up getting $100 cash back! Woohoo!

Now I have to learn how to use it!
