I love my iPhone, so imagine my disappointment when my buddy spilled his beer on on it while we were out boozin'. I quickly grabbed the phone and wiped it against my shirt, and all appeared to be fine. The next day, however, my phone had developed a very unsightly bar of gray, dead pixels right across the middle of the screen. My iPhone was well out of warrantee, and I'm not sure I would have felt right claiming a warrantee replacement on what was (maybe) related to the spilled beer incident.
We've seen Steve Jobs lose weight and look more and more weak during the vaious MacWorlds and Developer Conferences over the past couple years. When he bowed out of the 2009 MacWorld, most of us insane Apple guys got worried, but kept pretty silent when it came to worrying about his health. Well, today our fears were confirmed.
I already made my personal resolutions, but I can't leave out the professional ones.
1. Get better at managing my finances. I know what I need to do, but I need to actually do it. I need an accountant, file my receipts, get a better system for managing my invoices and payments. And I need a good system to track the mileage which is tax deductable.
It's that time of year again. It's time to improve as a human being, turn your life around, make this year better than last, etc. And like always, I have my own list.
1. Lose weight. My weight has been an issue for me for as long as I can remember, going up and down and up and down again. This year I resolve to get it down again and hopefully try to stop it from going back up.
