Wanted Ange



Orange gave me some tickets for the … uhm … Cinema at the Lake.

Wanted with Angelina. Wasn’t expecting much. Another how to kill 2000 people in five minutes movie. Actually that’s exactly what it is, but in a still surprising way, and with a couple of bondish (meaning totally impossible) stunts.

As for Ange. I wonder why she keeps doing the same Tomb Raider style movies, but if I’m honest … if I could choose between playing Fox in Wanted and Emma in Jane Austen’s Emma, I would do Fox 3000 times over.

PS: If you want to watch the movie, don’t see the trailer. It’s the whole movie in 3 mins. Why do they keep making those trailers where you a) already get the whole story, and b) see some of the best stunts already?

One month anniversary

It’s been a month with my iPhone and I’m already in a state where I wouldn’t want to be without it.

What makes the iPhone such a life saver?

I guess the fact that you always have the information or entertainment you need ready in your pocket. Full stop.

Of course a HTC, Blackberry, or any other smart phone fullfills the same duty. But I’m a mac chick, and a historical iPod fan. So the choice was obvious. Actually without the release of the iPhone 3G I’d still be a “normal” mobile phone user.

Frequently used apps so far are Facebook, WordPress, Zenbe and GottaGo (only for the Swiss).

I can recommend the Invisible Shield as a screen proctector. It makes the screen a bit rubbery which makes it easier to handle. The shield for the back sucks. For fun the gela skins offer a nice variety, and for real, not too bulky, colorful, and wavy protection, Griffin Wave rocks. For Swiss people available at Amazon.de.

What I miss is a learning feature for the dictionary. A Swiss German dictionary would also be a blast (but that’s of course impossible). And an Apple supported sms backup feature. I know there is Syphone. And finally my own sms tone.

I wonder a bit what my mobile phone bill would look like, as I don’t use the iPhone as a phone, but definitely as a mobile mac. We’ll see.
