Had to look up what the new status bar symbol was on my iPhone 5 after getting a new Plantronics HD Bluetooth headset. Turns out its the battery indicator for the Plantronics.

Oh, and the new Jabra headset for VOIP rocks, but can only answer calls on Skype and not in the softphone app of the VOIP company.

SteveON: The Coffee I just had burnt my tongue


That's what you get for being a hipster, and drinking your coffee before it was cool.

My first world problem: Bought a brand new 55" HD LED LCD TV for under $1000, got a wall bracket for $99, but then discovered my cordless drill had died and had to buy another one to mount the bloody TV.

ISS was orbiting right over ChCh last night.

Visitor arrived 3 mins before, and it was cloudy. Doomed to fail.

Business forms with all kinds of gradiated fill areas which use a boatload of toner/ink when actually printed.

Form designers need to think about this one. The people who commission forms should realise the forms printed professionally and forms for user printing are two different use cases.

It's bad enough slow and waste of time for average users printing gradiated forms with an inkjet printer. Just a waste of toner with laser printers.

Was in USA with 1GB data on Iphone4 - Internet on AT&T so slow that I couldn't use it all up

3.5GB of "4G" data on T-Mobile, again so slow that I didn't even get to use 1GB of it.

Had to leave spare Ipad with my brother to use the rest of the Data on that plan, what a waste of $45 (35 for 3.5GB + $10 for sim card)

Also while waiting for my plan in Honolulu left it too late to get a Caramel Crunch Frappacinno from Starbucks before boarding, had to decide between going to the toilet and getting the Frappacinno.

I chose the toilet, I chose wrong...

Went to Starbucks at Sylvia Park and they don't do the Caramel Crunch, only the Caramel FML.

My first world problem is I don't have a job at the moment and no income. If anyone in Dunedin is hiring or wants to take someone on in the IT industry who has had experience, then please let me know
