I kid you not, I think I have bought about $30 in apps over the past week, $58 for my IMP500 battery, and $48 for my Podium deskstand. I think I have a serious problem growing.

I spent $8 today alone. ( of course one of those was for Simply Tweet $4.99 because Twitterator has pissed me off for the last time- too many failed tweets and unable to connect to server errors)

I think I might need some help... And I promise to go to therapy...






Right after I get these new headphones that are coming out from budsgoblue.com!

I know how you feel. I ordered 3 new pairs of sunglasses online yesterday. Plus, I'm browsing the App Store now trying to find something fun to buy.

Twitter is a fad and will end soon. Just look at how idiots in the NFL and other sports are ruining it. Never thought it was that cool anyways.

Twitter update: "I just took a major crap!"

I just bought Madden 10 for iPhone and ESPN radio app. But I had a $15 gift iTunes card so I'm not as big of a sucker. I do feel the need though to get the 3GS and some new video games. Damn!

well, here are some of the new Apps I picked up, check them out:
Faces
SimplyTweet
iCam
Brushes ( actually had this one for a while but worth mentioning)
Waze (pronounced Wayz)
Duke Nukem 3D
Emergency Radio
Another worth mentioning is World Championship Pool 2009 - If you like pool. I love the 9 ball game.
Appbox Pro...Depends on your needs. I find it useful about once a week.
And of course Snapture- such an awesome camera app.

And if you are a geek like me and like having access to your PC from anywhere, Jaadu VNC ( I got lucky and picked it up for $5, normally $24.99)

I also picked up X Men Origins and Iron Man movies. Need entertainment for my flight to Ecuador next week.


Damn I need help....

I bought the 20 iMac Saturday for $1199. I did sell my quad core HP today for $600 so I got half back.

Don't get kidnapped, you look pretty white. Also, eat lots of guinea pigs. They are very nutritious.

I've heard other good things about Brushes, I might have to pick up that one. And I got Jaadu VNC at the discounted price too, I love that App. Iron Man was such a great movie, much better than X-Men Origins in my opinion.

Ecuador, that should be exciting. Business or pleasure? I'm planning a trip to Colombia in Christmas if I can get it worked out.

Going to Ecuador for my best friend's wedding. His Bride-to-be is from there. He's from Lebanon - I love him to death, but I am NOT going there. Not any time soon.

Brushes is like Paint for the iPhone. LOTS of versatility. I am working on some stuff now and hope to post them soon.
I'm a huge wolverine fan ( have a mint # 1 in the collection) and I think Hugh portrays him very well. I do think they crammed a little too much into the movie, but it still keeps me glued to the screen. Robert Downey was simply awesome as Tony stark. enough said.
I don't think I look too white, even if I am. LOL Like the "Tony Stark" goatee? needs to come in just a little more...

Notice there is NO shoulder muscle on the left arm... I am using the camera to hide the scar.

Dang, destination wedding, that's pretty exciting. And you're looking good from the surgery. How's the shoulder doing?

And yes, RDJ was awesome as Tony Stark. I cannot wait for the sequel.

Now you can't say that without explaining what happened (if you want to, of course :) )

Ecuador sounds fun. Do you plan to do any sightseeing at all, maybe go on a jungle walk and see some animals?

I have just got that and I am loving it so far I think it may be a replacement to Tweetie as Tweetie needs a update before I start using it again!.

Tweetie fell way behind.

I also picked up SimplyTweet two days ago (was also considering Twittelator Pro). And just yesterday, ST was listed on iTunes "hot list" and Twittelator started experiencing a twitter bug that requires an update. I think I made the right choice. :)

Yeah Tweetie needs to add a few features such as auto landscape keyboard, Video uploading from the 3GS, Badges to let you know how many new tweets,mentions,direct messages you have and some other stuff.

Push notifications for @replies is pretty key in my book now. That and conversational threading really make Twitter a lot more useable for me.

Yeah im not sure what is happening with Tweetie I don't know if the developer is working on something new because I seen a tweet off Stephen Fry and he was using something called big bird.

And if you click on it the link takes you to the atebits website with just a picture.

Well I've paid for both now. Whoever wins the feature/UI war will be the one I use!
