just finished a mid morning snack of milk and cookies … well, milk in my coffee – does that I count?

I’ve spent too much time this morning looking for widgets to tell me the time and weather on my phone – realized that we have in our hands the possibility of enormous amounts of information and design opportunities – I was intrigued by a widget that used scrap paper as the background for weather and time –

I think this one has a nifty crowd scene for the wallpaper, eh?

If you peruse the icons at the top of the screens – if there’s a connection to the cell tower or wifi, how much juice is in the battery or if it’s charging, time, if you’re connected via a usb cable, if you have any notifications – all in the palm of your hand.

I can recall hoping to get an LED watch for my christmas present when I was 9 or 10 – and I DID!! it would show the time when I pressed a button, it had a black plastic/rubber band, and I’d hold that button down to watch the minutes change from 58 to 59 and then both the hour and minutes change at the top of the hour!! oh, the enjoyment I had…

Speaking of enjoyment, not only is this one enjoyable, but the quote from sir Lennon I like – “time you enjoy wasting was not wasted” – as for the chances I would have wasted way too much time and not made it out of high school if I had a phone with this wallpaper – very high indeed!

smart phones for dumb people – could be the title of a chapter in my life!!

Hope march is treating you well – I’m having a good one so far. Just finished up having lunch that I heated up all by myself! Now I’m gonna go have cookies I ‘made’ by myself! Look at me – I’m awesome!!!

Look at my dog – she’s awesome too!!

ciao,
