Radiation Level:  Roaming

Listening To:  House of Cards by Radiohead

I got my iPhone 4.  It was painful, but not in the way I expected.

This morning I called all the Apple stores in LA, was on hold forever, and finally determined I could only get the phone at the Santa Monica store (Century City and Manhattan Beach were sold out and AT&T doesn’t get ’em until Tuesday).  Santa Monica said there was a 2-3 hour wait.  I thought ‘well, I’ll bring my computer and try to get some writing done.’  That of course didn’t happen, but I sure was glad I brought my computer.

After about 45 minutes in line, I was greeted by Carlos, who seemed very laid back considering the mass consumer flood that’s hit the store over the past 48 hours.

I got the phone, confirmed my data plan and turned it on.  It worked!  It’s supposed to be thinner than the last one, but it doesn’t seem much thinner. It is a tad heavier, though not heavy.  I’m not having any holding it wrong/losing bars issues.  No crazy yellow spots.  Only…

I went to sync the phone with my iTunes to restore all my previous settings from two days ago and got the error message –


Didn’t know that.  So Carlos and I proceeded to spend the next 3 and a half hours downloading Snow Leopard ($189.00) and upgrading iTunes and other software, including calling Final Draft to make sure 8 is compatible with OS 10.6 (Final Draft seems to hate Mac, so it’s better to be safe than sorry).  Yes, it was compatible, but  I had to “deactivate” the Final Draft (This really baffled Carlos.  He kept asking me why and all I could say was “that’s what the guy said”)  This took another phone call and a deactivation code.  Yeah.

Finally, finally, after a free lemonade and watermelon-ade, and two “Genius Bar helpers”, I was able to sync my iPhone 4.

And I’m exhausted.

Now, let's hope I don't drop it...

  2. This means networking on a traditional dating site would be
    a comfortable, empowering, and preferred way to find their perfect match.
    Pattaya is one of a kind, it’s a place that lives by its own rules and norms.

    Not all men are charming or personable, let alone extremely attractive, but they
    all desire the same thing: to have the opportunity to date a beautiful woman.

  8. There is real-world fashion modeling gathering and online “modeling meetings” or showcases of comp cards which cost $250-$650,
    or more. Their petite and slender frame would make you feel like
    a big guy even if you do not pass the big hunk standards of Westerners.
    This list was compiled by a broken hearted, exquisite musical taste acquired,
    temporarily unemployed, blond pop star hating, extremely smart and
    put together asian chick, who really didn’t have
    that much sex to begin with, but would love to expand her horizons.
