My wife and I just had our baby, on national pi day (3/14) and he's absolutely beautiful. He's been in the NICU for a little bit so I've been at the hospital since the 14th until today. I sit here waiting and praying for my son to get better, until then, I have been obsessively been keeping up with all that great tech news. I am proud to actually own a Lumia device, and being in school in all for one quarter, I've converted 3 people into getting a Lumia phone, and they have nothing but amazing things to say about it. One of my quests in my life are to evangelize and convert people to Windows Phone, and Windows 8 tablets.
I recently applied to be a "Microsoft Student Partner" haven't heard much from them, but who says you cant stop following your dreams right? I also do go to a puny Community college in Spokane, that barely makes a mark, so I can see why Microsoft wouldn't pick me. You just cant give up I guess. I continually keep the Windows Phone subreddit updated, and what not and I also keep my Windows Phone community page updated on Facebook. My passion is to "show the world my knowledge of Microsoft technology" I still cant wrap my head around why I am so obsessed.... I've always had this mindset of having the best, and being the best, and that's where my Microsoft obsessiveness kicks in I guess. Im not a geek, its weird. I care daily how I look, and I love society, maybe a cool geek? (don't want to sound to arrogant I guess??) Maybe Microsoft should just hire me already! I live, I breathe, I cry Microsoft and its amazing products. Hmm, on a side note, things that have been going through my mind lately.... Lets start of with the Blackberry z10.. What do you guys think? Do you think it'll take the global 3rd spot? Don't think I'm some Microsoft fan boy now, but I really do think Blackberry is late to the game. They just announced they officially have 70,000 apps.....Those 70 thousand are mostly ported apps from android (that run sluggish, so I hear) I just don't think there is any room for blackberry anymore, and for them to sell their security and enterprise services.
I do appraise the keyboard, but that's about it. Nokia, and its Lumia phones is where the future is at. Nokia wants the 3rd spot more than Blackberry with there amazing support for their customers and phones. I am currently sporting a white Lumia 920, and for how advanced it is, and with a few firmware updates, it'll be able to out do the blackberry in its apparent revolutionary features. Thornton Hein's, the blackberry, CEO says the Windows Phone doesn't have the capabilities to be a Mobile computing device, ironically enough Windows Mobile came out before the Blackberry, so im thinking Windows Phone 8 has the guts to be a mobile computing device. I think its funny that dying companies talk crap when their company is crap. Brings back the old Xbox is better than PlayStation debates. All in all, itll be a very interesting year for Nokia and Microsoft.
