What I *do know is that I'm not getting left behind again... last time I got a phone there was a never ending stream of sources saying the Droid DNA is [ http://cnet.co/1DpqeSH ] the "Most Awesome Droid ever". Which was fine till something else came out and I started getting android updates less and less frequently. I knew my phone was a "has been" when I went to buy a charger (from the Verizon store I got the phone from no less) and the clerk looked my phone and said "Nah, we don't have accessories for a...what kinda phone you say this was again?". Nobody ever seems to run out of Samsung or iPhone accessories... and when they break (like mine seems to do a lot lately) there's always a replacement.
Are there good reasons to pick [ http://bit.ly/1xc4ggJ ] the hot iPhone over the hot android? I certainly love the apple ecosystem and the phones are darned slick. But I've been with android since the beginning... and when I saw had a Galaxy N4 [ http://bit.ly/1tHzIC4 ], I started waffling on the whole iPhone thing... I love my android cause its slick, customizeable, and it takes me 15min to switch over all my apps and data to a new phone.
I was also wondering about Verizon's edge program [ http://vz.to/1uM8cV5 ]. It sure seems like it might be a good idea, but they've reshuffled the numbers such that its difficult to discern. Fortunately there are folks out there that'll break it down for me [ http://bit.ly/12XUgvW ] and make it a little easier to digest.
Counting down the days till renewal...
Arrgh.. Trying to switch over to using docker containers instead of vm's for convenience with Urbancode Deploy when working with stuff locally. Mostly its ok, but all of a sudden I'm getting all these port conflicts when I *know there's nothing running on that port. Looks like its a known issue [ http://bit.ly/1CLhRzf ] with 1.x but I prob need to update to the latest version [ http://bit.ly/1G9al28 ] anyway. And... just got enabled for containers on BlueMix, gotta see how easy it is to shift some containers over there as well. Looks good in the redbook [ http://ibm.co/1AvoAOi ] but gotta give it a try myself... #docker #bluemix
Guess I'll have find some new places... #nyc #classic #food
