So many apps!!!!!

30 07 2008

Another post coming from my iPhone.

Some people may know that I run my iPhone jailbroken and on the T-Mobile network. I am proud to report that I have had go issues with it at all.

I’m running version 2.0 firmware on it. I like it a lot. The only problem is that a lot of the jailbroken apps aren’t ported yet. I do have all the ones available (I have the NES emulator but I still need to upload roms).

Anyway, onto the post… I’ve been scouring the app store for all the free apps. I now have nearly 10 pages worth of apps on my iPhone. Everything from Shazam (awesome music tagger) to Facebook to Tap Tap Revenge (DDR and guitar hero like rhythm game). I’ve already trimmed down some of the stupid ones like the flashlight apps (got a jailbreak app that does it brighter) and the yes/no app.

It is kinda annoying that you have to register with a lot of things to use certain apps, but I guess it is okay.

Look for future posts on my favorite apps both app store and jailbreak.

Until next time,
Richie

Btw… Gotta love crappy iPhone pics.

I just downloaded the wordpress app for the iphone and I am testing it out. It is pretty cool. It’s a limited app but it gets the job done.

Expect future posts coming from my iPhone.

Much love,

Rant #1

My amazon marketplace store got shut down :(. Thanks to amazon.com’s bogus A-Z Guarantee, and stupid consumers.

This A-Z Guarantee is great… for buyers, but it royally shaft’s those of us who sell. I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. Many sellers on Amazon write about this on amazon.com’s messageboards, and the feeling is all the same. We get kicked in the ass because of dumb consumers who dont read product descriptions.

I’m throwing up a huge middle finger in the air to these dumb consumers. Why can’t you people read the item descriptions before clicking on “buy???” Too often, I get idiots who buy my items, but do not read the description, and a week or two later, I get an email from amazon from the customer. Most of the time I can work it out by offering a partial refund, but sometimes I get the jerks who want to draw it out for weeks through the A-Z Guarantee. I really don’t want the item back, and both buyer and seller lose money this way.

Amazon needs a seller-protection-plan. If idiot consumers aren’t smart enough to read the description, dont make the seller foot the bill! How are we as sellers going to know if the buyer will send the item back? I know I’m waiting for some items still, and these buyers have their refunded money, and my item!

Why can’t selling items online be what it once was? Not only amazon, but ebay and countless others have made it so complex and money hungry. Maybe it’s time to get out of the biz, or create my own store, no amazon or ebay strings attached.





Apologies.

Sorry folks for not writing in May or June. It was such a crazy time for me, and it still is.

May and June were Wedding and Vacation season for me and my family. We were out and about.

Stay tuned for a future post on ’em… maybe.
