Incoming hurricane Wednesday-ish [PHOTO]

I just took a look at NOAA and saw there’s going to be a hurricane that’s going to hit Texas around Wednesday.

I put this high-tech graphic together to show where abouts I will be in this mess.

Looking at the projected size of the hurricane and looking where it’s going to be and after very careful thought, I have to say…. crap. Specifically crappity crap crap crap.

CNN : “Apple on iPhone complaints: You’re holding it wrong”

I wasn’t planning on getting one of the new iPhones because of the consistently rotten service from AT&T. But apparently the brand new iPhone has a lot of problems in and of itself.

On Gizmodo, they say not only does the front glass scratch and crack easily, the whole iPhone will scratch and crack easily. There’s also a constant yellow tint with spots on the display, some of the volume buttons are improperly installed from the factory, and if you hold it in your left hand like you do any other cell phone in existence, the signal will drop!

Geez, Apple. Who did you contract out for quality control on this? Lancelot Link – Secret Chimp?

Well, CNN just posted Apple’s response to the signal loss problem. “”Just avoid holding it in that way,” Apple CEO Steve Jobs wrote in an e-mail.”

What? Seriously? You have to hold the iPhone all dainty? Put it in a soft case and don’t forget to keep your pinky finger out?

Damn. That’s pretty insulting. Even for an Apple product.

Here’s the link to the CNN article.
