Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time.

So, before I even start, can I just say how much I hate that Christmas song? Seriously. Hate. Who hates a Paul McCartney Christmas song? It doesn't seem right. But oy! The second I hear those horrid clashing sounds at the beginning of the song, I tense up and feel slightly cranky. It's such a horrible tune, and the radio station my work has on all day long, just loves to play it. Bah humbug.

Alas! I am no Scrooge - I love Christmas! We've had more snow over the past few days, but sadly it hasn't been sticking around very long. If you've seen the news, temperatures in Europe have been making the weather very unpredictable, so who knows? We may be lucky and get that snowy Christmas Day yet. I have work tomorrow, and then I'm off for a good few days until the New Year, and I am so looking forward to doing sweet, sweet nothing.

I was spoiled super early too, as this past weekend Jason gave me my Christmas present - a brand spanking new shiny iPhone! It took a lot of effort, including going back and forth across the city several times, but I managed to get the very last phone handset in London on the 12-month plan that I wanted. (That will end next Christmas... leading into other things very nicely.) My boy is way too good to me. I love him so. (iPhone or no iPhone, of course.)

Any technologically proficient bloggers feel up to walking me through all things iPhone? I really want to be able to send pictures & write blog posts directly to my little blog. It might just get me back in the swing of posting more regularly, which is something I'd really like to do. Oh, and apps? Any favourites or suggestions are welcomed!

Congrats on your new iPhone! It will change your life. :)

Now I have that song stuck in my head. And I don't like it either. Thanks a lot!

Enjoy the iPhone! Unfortunately, I have no advice to offer.

For blogging get the Wordpress app. (Yes, Wordpress has its own app!)
Other great apps: Facebook, Shazam, Twitterrific, Nimbuzz, Starbucks, Shopper, IMDb, 12 Days of Christmas (for getting freebies for 12 days after Xmas, it's an Apple app), Instapaper, Things or Awesome Notes.
Those are some I can think off right now.
Games I like are: Fling, DoodleJump, Tap Tap Revenge 2, Sneezies, Shrek Karting and Solitaire City.
Enjoy your iPhone! I love mine. In fact I'm typing this comment on it right now.

Just listen to Rage Against The Machine. Much more Christmasy :)

Ugh, I hate that song.

I love my iPhone. I love the google app (direct link to my google reader), flashlight, unit converter and lighter apps too :) You could spend hours in the app store!

Julie said...

you need a complete geek/nerd friend to jailbreak your iphone. ;) my friends would be able to help in that department, but me? i fail...

kirby said...

I fail too, Julie. I want an iphone next phone.
I'm all for more regular blogging, by the way.

I'm hoping for snow tomorrow night, once I'm home from work. Getting stuck in London on Christmas Eve doesn't sound particularly appealing, but if it decided to snow late in the evening, when I don't have to go anywhere for the next 10 days, I'll be happy :)

Lucky you, an iPhone, and early! I desperately need a new phone, should do some research :)

Merry Christmas, and woohoo on the iPhone! I'd get one except my cell phone provider doesn't offer them and I don't want to switch, so I'm waiting until I'm eligible for an upgrade to get a phone that uses the Android OS.

I must join in on the hate for that song. It brings to mind the episode of Friends when Ross reveals the songs he used to write on his synthesizer.

Turning off applications does seem to be a chore. While some have a menu option to do so, others just keep running. I'll have to find that app you were referring to that helps shut apps down.
