I just traveled to the King of Prussia store, and learned that IF you are in your 14 day return period, bring in your iPhone and receipt, and they will refund the difference of $200.

What was I doing at the Apple store you may ask…I don’t know…. 🙂

Starting at $299 for 4gb, and $399 for 8Gb. It has everything the iPhone has except, no phone, and no camera. Other then that, it’s sweet!!!!

Also, in other huge news, they lowered the price of the iPhone to $399 for 8GB!! Wow, $200 drop in two months. I want to know if the 4gb is now $299??? They didn’t mention that.

Way to go Apple!!!

 EDIT:  Yes, I just confirmed, the 4GB is $299! Once their gone, their gone for good!

Jenneth Orantia from Gear Diary think UMPCs are great. Don’t beleive me, click the link. I happen to agree. I just wish UMPCs would drop the huge space around the screen, and went to all screen.

Check out the article!

Sumocat threw me a topic. Thanks a lot Sumocat! I was enjoying my non-writing day! You see, I gave myself off today, since yesterday, I spent hours, and hours writing a masterpiece called:

How many trees have you saved with a Tablet PC?

And now, on my day off you have the nerve to throw something back at me to write. Geez, I ready don’t want to, but I guess I have to…(Joking Of Course)

You want to know what gadgets I use on a daily basis? I think my answer may surprise you…

Think about it. How many tress have you saved with your Tablet PC? Without your Tablet PC, all of the ink notes you taken, would of been taken on paper. Every single entry in your tablet, would of been written on a tree. I ask again, how many trees have you saved? To discover the answer, we need to take a journey back in time. Back before we had Tablet PCs.

How, you ask?

Care to step in my time machine?

On jkontherun.com, James wrote a very well written article called:

JK opinion- Vista will never run well on mobile devices

Even though I enjoyed his article, I must disagree. In the comments section, Ctitanic of http://ultramobilepc-tips.blogspot.com/ wrote this comment:

“Guys, I don’t know what you are talking about. Yesterday I was working in my Q1 and I was thinking for myself, I’m so happy with Vista responds time in my Q1 that I’m afraid to move on to any of the new coming UMPCs.

I have been optimizing it, but not so deep as others. I do not have any more those HDD bashing. The only thing that I would improve would be the time to come back from Hibernation but I have to say also that I have a lot of programs working in my taskbar and around 70 process running all time.

And that’s in a Q1 Celeron running at 900 MHz. I tested Vista in a eo v7110 (VIA). It was slow and once the beta expired and have not comeback to Vista, I stayed in XP because I considered Vista too much for that processor. But… I had only 1 GB in that machine while in my Q1 I have 2 GB. And I mention this RAM difference because believe me, Vista does not run well in 1 GB of RAM. The performance is increased a lot just by adding that extra gibabyte.

In conclusion, I think that Vista is perfect for UMPCs but… it has to be optimized. I think that Microsoft should create some kind of optimization profiles where people can select what is better for them. And I say this because I’m that James, Kevin and other people reading our blogs can follow our optimization instructions but that’s probably 10% or less of all consumers.”

I must say I agree 100% with him on this one. This was my comment:

“James,

Your forgetting that when XP was released, people spent tons of time trying to optimizing it because it had it’s problems. Heck, when my parents bought a new notebook last year, I had to spend time turning certain things off to optimized XP.

Up to this point I’m enjoying Vista. I spend about 20 minutes turning certain things off, but once I done that, I have Vista running just as well as it did on XP. And the notebook is a Acer Celeron M 1.5, with 512MB!!!! Yes it’s Vista Basic, but Vista runs with no problems. I have no problems connecting to the network. I have no problems surfing the net.

I believe Vista will be there one day. But I think Microsoft should of created another version of Vista. Vista for Mobile(or Smaller) machines. Ultimate, Business, Premium, MOBILE, and Basic.”

My wife owns a Acer Notebook that we purchased in March. The specs are as follows: Celeron M 1.5, 512MB. Vista Basic.

When we bought the machine the sales man kept trying to upsale us to a higher priced machine. His pitch was, that this machine is too slow for Vista. After he finally gave up he recommended we get another 512MB of ram. I was planning on, but not just yet.

When I first started to use the machine, is was slooooooooooooooooow.

Applications took forever to open. However, after spending about 20 minutes, turning off features my wife did not need, the machine was performing with no speed problems at all. Was it super fast? No. But it was perfect for my wife.

I do plan on upgrading the ram to 1GB at some point, but for now, this has been one of her favorite computers to date.

To get a post out, I’m going to post about nothing. Yup, that’s right, it’s about nothing. I have nothing to post about, so I’ll post about nothing.

I mean, I guess I could come up with something, but I’ll stick to nothing. Besides, it worked for Seinfeld.
