So yesterday the Treo 700p was finally released. For those who don't know, this phone is the new hotness. It has 128mb of ram, a 1.3 megapixel camera, and EVDO high speed internet. If you aren't a big nerd, then take my word for it - it's great. You can even stream TV and movies on it. If you have Sprint or Verizon, then this is the phone for you.
The price is $649. This is a lot, but I always like to have the cheapest or the best, and this is the best.
However, with a little finagling, this beauty can be in your hands along with a free 1GB SD card next Tuesday for only $549. Here's how you do it :
This is currently the best deal available on the 700p. If something went wrong, try again and make sure you did it in the right order. Doing it in the wrong order will cause the 1GB card to cost $99.
Wow, that was a really busy week. I'm not used to being busy at all - back in the day I had all the free time I could possibly imagine. Maybe it's about time to revisit polyphasic sleep? Here are some things that made me busy :
Work, of course. I've been waiting for weeks for a company to send us a new computer for our data center that lets me do fancy things. Last week it seemed like every day was going to be the day that it would be ready, so I would just wait all day for it to be set up. Then there would be some problem, and the process would repeat itself the next day. Finally this week it got all set up, so now I have more to do than I have time for. Yes! I love having things to do. It just so happens that this particular task is really fun too.
My car broke AGAIN. I have a 1994 S600, which is known to be one of the hardest (read : most expensive) cars to maintain. The reason is that it's a V12. Since it's basically two V6 engines stuck together, it also has two of a lot of components. Twice as many things to be broken. It also has a hydraulic suspension, which is what broke on mine. Of course this time I didn't take the car to the dealership.
A good checking account will have (ranked in order of subjective importance):
No fees, particularly monthly maintenance, incoming wire, etc
ATM Fee Reimbursement: ATM fees from other banks are reimbursed
