TOYS R US!

Just one last reminder to come see us this Saturday November 27th at the Toys R Us in Bellevue.

103 110TH Ave NE
Bellevue, WA 98004-5805

We’ll be there with Garrison Titan. They will be in full armor helping collect toys for Child’s Play. The event runs from 10am-4pm and Tycho and I will be there starting at noon. Bring your Nintendo DS if you want to try some multiplayer or bring your WOW strategy guide if you’d like to get it signed.

It’s true I kept my N-Gage QD and I’m now using it as my phone. It’s strange since I love gadgets so much but I never really got into cell phones. I’ve had the same basic free phone that came with my plan for a few years. I honestly didn’t know cell phones had gotten so cool. I admit that Nokia has crafted a very good cell phone here, what they failed to do is make it a compelling game system. All the games I’ve tried for it are disgusting but I’m still keeping it. So thanks for the free telephone Nokia, it kicks ass at everything except playing video games.

I went ahead and got hooked up with a Cingular service plan for it. I was drawn in by the promise of “roll over minutes”.  The plan I got is decent but they really screw you if you want to use the cellular internet stuff. It’s super expensive to get a decent plan that includes data but now that I had a phone capable of that shit I wanted to really give it a shot. I had fantasies about checking my gmail account from the supermarket and getting movie tickets from the car on the way to the theatre.

I’m having a hell of a time getting it all set up though. Cingular is happy to sell you the service but good luck finding anything on their website that actually tells you how to use it. I had to scour google to get the settings I needed. I’m sure eventually I’ll get it all straightened out but right now its frustration city.
