I've mentioned a few times recently how I scored a new phone through work - traded in the old clunky "I don't know how to make this work for me" Blackberry for a new "I don't know how to make this work for me either but it's a lot faster and cooler" HTC myTouch HD. I'll be honest - one of the biggest reasons I wanted a new phone is because I was way jealous of my friends with their smartphones and badass camera features. The blackberry could take a total of like nine pictures, but they were horrible quality and did I mention it could only hold nine pictures? Nine is not a lot.
So I've been playing with this new toy - learning how to download apps, trying to think of apps I need in my life that I've somehow managed to live without for the last 31 years - and I've been taking a lot of pictures. Not of anything in particular. Just things. And stuff. And I'll be honest - one of the reasons I wanted this new phone so bad and not just another Blackberry reincarnation? I wanted to do this - take all these pictures of stuff and things...
...and then post them on my blog. Because you guys care, right?
