The new roles of the common handheld communication device, known as cell phones.

Ooo... so i got an Mp3 player that plays only songs with bitrate up to 192 bit/s. You picky consumers out there don't start mocking my new Samsung D807 because I am sure yours can't even play it unless u made it urself.

I bought this phone thinking that it'd replace a need for me to get an IPod, well, the idea seems possible, but having to recompress everything is a bit troublesome.

The reason why I did not even start b*tching bout this 192 bit/s thing is because as an Electrical Engineer myself I know how hard (or have a relatively accurate estimate of) it is to make a hardware Mpeg Decoder. and to put it into a 50mmx50mm die that is the brain of your cellular phone.

Believe me, if they could run it faster than what it could play, they would have done so already. I don't think cell phones are meant to be overclocked like ur processor is. Even if you can do it, u probably will just fry ur new LG chocolate within 2 days anyway.

Well, as I was typing out my blog, I was trying out the new feature, playing a popular Jay Chou song from a couple years back. I did not like Jay in any particular fashion, but I put it in because there are friends of mine that didn't like him in particular. Don't bother asking me why it makes sense, because it don't and there are times you REALLY REALLY need to irritate someone and you'll never know what may come in handy. (hmm.. maybe a speakerphone...)

well, my samsung's feature allowing the ringtone to be set to only be as large as 600kb. It took me a long time to resize my songs.. arghhh...

it's still a good phone. Go get urs now, and put ur iPod near the 5-10 year old discman, because u should categorized ur stuff appriopriately, and it's time to organize ur out-of-fashion-nothing-more-than-just-a-show-with-stolen-technology-from-Creative-Labs iPod in the right place.

If you want an iPod nano you can have mine. I am kind of tired of it and I barely use it anyway. I don't want to buy anything with DRM so I don't really use it for much.

About this blog

A lot of stuff about what I think, and not what I am about. Which is good, because I would be able to make fun of Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Penn State, and discuss on our futility against Ohio State. (But Woo Shoelace!)

I still think the word "god" should not be capitalized, because like oxygen or air or universe, it's an entity, and is not specific or special in its meaning.
