T-Mobile G2 by HTC in my hands for 18 hours compare to Nexus One and G1

Filed under: Random Stuff — Tags: , , , , — Scott @

Just got my T-Mobile G2!!!

A quick bit of background.  I had a G1 very early on – pre-ordered and got pretty quickly.  This replaced by Blackberry (which had replaced my Palm) and I absolutely loved my G1.  When the Nexus One came out – again, I jumped on it quickly.  Ordered within minutes of availability and got it very quickly.  LOVED IT!  But…it had issues:  wouldn’t hold WiFi signal at home (well documented issue on forums), battery life is not good at all, and my top button has now died.  Froyo was like getting an entirely new phone – the speed boost was amazing!

HIGH SCHOOL 1959 vs. 2009

Scenario  1:
Joe  goes quail hunting before school and then pulls into the school  parking lot with his shotgun in his truck’s gun rack.
1959  – Vice Principal comes over, looks at Joe’s shotgun, goes to his car and gets his shotgun to show Joe.
2009  – School  goes into lock down, FBI called, Joe hauled off to jail and never sees his truck or gun again. Counselors called in for traumatized students and teachers..



Scenario  2:
Johnny and Mark get into a fist fight after school.
1959  – Crowd gathers. Mark wins.. Johnny and Mark shake hands and end up buddies.
2009  – Police called and SWAT team arrives — they arrest both Johnny and Mark. They are both charged with assault and both expelled even though Johnny started it.

Schlitterbahn Opens

Filed under: Random Stuff — Tags: — Scott @

We were at Schlitterbahn Kansas on opening day! A quiet opening with not all of the phase I rides open yet but still a fun few hours with an exceptionally small crowd. The potential is absolutely there for a great water park but not just yet….as expected for the first few weeks until the final touches are on the remaining phase I attractions. In a few years it will be amazing once it’s 100% done at full strength. Here’s a video (that we are in if you look closely) from Fox 4 News in KC!

Stone Canyon Golf Course – Kansas City, MO – Independence, MO

All Spring the Kansas City area was bombarded by commercials on TV, radio and print for Stone Canyon Golf Course in Independence, MO designed by Greg “The Shark” Norman. And all these promotions included promoting a $50 preview rate in 2009 before the club went private in 2010! Well, today (6-20-09) Stone Canyon sent out an e-mail saying that as of July 1st that preview was going away Fri-Sun (when anybody can actually take advantage of it)! Pretty crappy of them. First of all, your in Independence – get over yourself. But even if you’re the greatest golf course ever changing this preview rate you promoted heavily for weeks and weeks before you opened on May 15th is crap. I don’t ever remember hearing this was 6 week preview rate….of course I didn’t hear that – that would be pretty weak. Wait…..that’s exactly what it turned out to be. Not a great first impression by the course, pretty crappy quite frankly.

A talking post?

Filed under: Random Stuff — Scott @

This post is really a test post, I am testing NaturallySpeaking from Dragon Software it is dictation software that may or may not be working. I am watching the words delayed by about anywhere from 1 to 5 seconds as I speak them, but the accuracy seems to be pretty good.
I will talk a little bit about the Royal who won again today to go to 2-1 on the season and it had three excellent, outstanding even, starting pitching performances. Gil Meche on opening day perhaps the best of the three – the one not get the win as Kyle Farnsworth was a disaster and gave up the game-winning home run. Zach Greinke very impressive, got to the bullpen and went with Jose Cruz to Soria and today in the rubber match of the series Kyle Davies picked up right where he left of in the regular season so outstanding pitching winning 2, dropping 1. But they left way too many runners on base and its little scary. Still, 2-1 and coming back for the home opener and maybe Sydney Ponson can prove me wrong and beat the Yankees.
So thank you for letting me do one post here while I talk into my microphone instead of typing.
