It arrived. After much frustration, one death threat and several months of waiting my new phone finally arrived. I’ve never really been a fan of unboxing posts on technology blogs before, but I know a few people like them so I’m including this here. So then, lets see what we get with the Samsung i8910 HD, shall we? Just for fun I’m going to imagine I’ve paid the six hundred pounds asking price for this phone or signed up for an 18 month contract.
That’s the start of a post I should have already put up today except…
there was some confusion over your address, but it’s been rectified so it should be with you asap!
It’s seven at night as I write this and the phone still hasn’t arrived so I’m pretty sure it isn’t going to be showing up today. The image is from the All About Symbian unboxing by the way. As you can probably guess, I’m in a bad mood. I waited in all day today for this thing and, while everyone else got it and started getting to grips with it, my stupid address messed things up with the courier company.
In other news:
I work hard on my blog. I try to write interesting posts, articles and the like and keep it updated almost every day. Sometimes I’ll post cartoons from sites that allow it, or tests I find, but mostly I’ll write the best articles I can. I don’t do this from the comfort of a PC, able to easily copy and paste entire articles from Wikipedia or news sites. I do it from my phone, painstakingly typing in each and every character that you read with my phone’s keypad. So, when I see blogs that use the constant copy and paste technique it irks me a little.
And when I see blogs that have copied my content word for word well… Let’s just say I’m more than a little annoyed. Yeah, it linked back. Yeah, it wasn’t the entire post so people would visit the original to read it and probably actually boosted my readers. But come on, how about asking instead of me finding out by Fairshare alerting me that someone’s stealing my content? There’s an e-mail link on the sticky post of this page specifically for things like that. It’s common courtesy and doesn’t make me visit in a bad mood because I’m expecting a thief.
I’m just not in the mood for this shit today.
