my life

i’m a warriors fan and enjoying their recent success after watching years of deplorable success with players like alton lister and kevin pritchard. i have my second electric car. i recently put a deposit in for the new tesla model 3 car but was disappointed at the interior and potential for problems since it’s the first model year of that car. i grew up near my parents and my kids grew up near their great-grandparents which is fantastic because i grew up far from extended family.

and…

i lost my iphone last week somewhere in fremont. i was getting out of the car at peet’s coffee and it must have fallen off my lap or maybe i did end up bringing it into peet’s and left it at a counter or something. anyway, i was crushed because it was my sole entertainment device on the bus rides to and from work. i suspended service and did a remote wipe from my exchange server at work. there wasn’t too much collateral damage, at least as far as i can tell. i was thinking about what phone i would get next and ran across this motorola phone running the google android os. i never thought motorola could make a phone like this, but i’m anxiously awaiting being able to demo this out. it’s got the usual goodies including exchange sync and integration of all google apps and, best of all, a real keyboard!
