Creeping Changes

Updating my 3Gs iPhone to iOS4 was like getting a new phone. So I’ll probably wait to get iPhone 4, since the next version will probably be better.

Talking to some others, today I realized how much I use my phone now (and how little I use it *as* a phone).

Off the top of my head, this is my 3Gs iPhone usage, not in order:

Texting (SMS)
Calendar/scheduling
Weekly grocery list
Email
Twitter
Facebook
Directions/maps (I’m directionally impaired)
Reading (fiction)
Reading (non-fiction)
Reading (daily news)
Reading (political sites)
Reading (graphic novels)
Reading (blogs)
Wikipedia checks (ie, looking up words, history, etc)
Recipes (while cooking)
Listening to music (with headphones)
Games
Locating nearby places (food, coffee, movies, etc)
Buying media
Watching movies
Note-taking
Buying/canceling Amazon products (not just books…dishes recently)
Photography (for amusement)
Photography (to share)
Photography (to remember something, like the way someone else has decorated their house)
Home/car maintenance (while working on something)
Stock values
Weather
Tracking calories/exercise
Calculator
Recording audio snippets (for odd work tasks)
Checking local events (live music, festivals, etc)
Updating Netflix
IM (when on the road)
Approve blog comments
Identifying music (playing around me)
Phone calls

Fake Album Covers

While studying up on art theory (semiotics and simulacra), I stumbled across this Fake Album Cover meme. Seems like my kind of thing, so how did I miss it?

Fake Album Cover from Know Your Meme:

How to Make Your Own Album Cover

1 – Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “random”
or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 – Go to “Random quotations”
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 – Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 – Use photoshop or similar to put it all together.
