Think your phone is 'smart'?

Good morning everyone,

No change in the forecast for today. They are calling for mostly cloudy weather throughout the day-I saw ol' Sol this morning poking his head through the clouds, but I'm not sure if we'll see him again before Friday!

Have the real Carp shown up? As of this morning, the Carp have dropped to playing .500 baseball and are now in 3rd place. Luckily for them, no other teams have really stepped up their play besides the Dragons or they may have dropped even further. Having said that, the Carp hardly ever do well in interleague play, so they might bounce back once they start playing their Central League opponents again.

The other day I was chatting with a student about her iPhone and she said that she was like me before, she thought that she kind of wanted one but wasn't in any hurry to get it. Then her phone broke so she had to get one and now that she has it she loves it! She said that once I had one, I would wonder how I lived before without it! Really!? That made me really tempted to check it out...ha ha!

Then, this morning I was reading an article in the Toronto paper and a team of researchers at Queen's University. have invented a prototype smart phone that is only as thick as a credit card! And it bends! The protoype costs around $7, 000 so I might be able to save enough for one in 5 years, if I start saving now! Ha ha!

How cool is that?! They predict that within the next 5-10 years, this will replace all Smartphones. I'm not sure about that, there will always be people who prefer something a little more solid. I wonder if I can hold out for 5 more years before I get one! Ha ha! Maybe by then they will have dropped down to a price that I can afford...

I'm off to see Pirates of the Caribbean later this morning! I'll let you know how it was tomorrow!

Have a great day!
