Testing...

Got my iPhone today. Been sucked into downloading different apps. I'm most impressed with all the free "books" that are available. I got the entire works of Shakespeare (I think it's all there) on my phone. How crazy is that?

Anyway, I'm trying this livejournal app to see how easy it is to post here.

Since everyone is talking about Michael Jackson's passing today, I must chime in to say I was SHOCKED. First I heard about Fawcett lost her battle with cancer this morning. Then I read about Jackson's death in the afternoon. What a day! I've been seeing reports all afternoon and evening about ppl had trouble getting on livejournal, Twitter, and wikipedia. Makes me wonder if it's because of Michael...

Wow, congratulations for the new iPhone! :D What I think first for that is I'd be able to put all the fics I want to read. Heheh.

That's true. A celebrity comm I follow also experienced that.

Hehe, I'll have you know the first app I downloaded was livejournal.app! I thought it would make it easier to read journal entries where my favorite fanfics are posted. :p

So far, besides Shakespeare, I have downloaded Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, Alice in Wonderland, The Wonderful World of Oz, Gulliver's Travels, 2000 Leagues Under the Sea, Paradise Lost, Iliad, The Count of Monte Cristo, Treasure Island, The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn, etc...

I am so amazed all these "books" fit on this small palm sized phone, and they are all FREE! For whomever wondering if iPhone is a better choice, this alone ought to convince the doubters! ^_^

And re MJ, if his "spirit" knew his death broke the internet, I wonder how it would feel...

Those are a lot of books! How big is the capacity?

Heee, I got the 32 gigabytes one. :p

That was nothing! I got almost the entire 4th season of Supernatural on it as well! ;-)

In deed! It was very strange. When I read about MJ, I thought it was a hoax at first. Then I was sad for his kids he left behind, and for Farrah because I knew her death would be overshadowed by his.

I know! And it was for free! Besides that, I got a whole bunch of other "books" too: Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, Alice in Wonderland, The Wonderful World of Oz, Gulliver's Travels, 2000 Leagues Under the Sea, Paradise Lost, Iliad, The Count of Monte Cristo, Treasure Island, The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn... I couldn't even list them all.

Yesterday was a strange day, and a little sad...

Yeah, iPhone definitely is a very good idea. :D

I got the 32 gig memory one. So beside all these "books", I also have most of the season 4 SPN episodes on it too. Hubby was rolling his eyes yesterday and commented I wouldn't have time to read all these books. I told him that's okay 'coz I read most of them already. It's just fun to flip through certain passages whenever I feel like it. :)

I was never a big fan of either Fawcett or MJ. But I still felt sad, especially with mj. Although I gotta say I also agree with the cynical view expressed in a tweet I saw yesterday, that Irania politicians have mj to thank for for diverting attention away from them!

I never saw FF in CA either. But not because I was too young. Back then I was a little girl living in China. Even in the late 80s when I came to US, that hairdo was still pretty dominant as far as fashionable goes. MJ was one of the 3 western singers I heard of before I came to America (the other 2 are Karen Carpenter and Johon Denver of all ppl!)

MJ's turn out was tragic. Long before his death. I've always thought he was so wacko because he tried to hold his youthfulness, in voice and everything else. Who can hold time as hostage and not be loopy?!

frikking cool! i'm still waiting for my iPhone to arrive. how do you like? did you give it a cute name? ;)

how is the lj-app?

i have the shakespeare collection on my iPod and i think it's complete.

mj: i got the news on twitter and at first thought it was a bad joke but when it got confirmed by recommended online services i was kinda sad. which is strange since i never was a fan or anything. i guess i was used to having him around.

Oh hun, you are so going to love it! *g*

No, I didn't think of giving it a cute name. It got a boring "Jane's iPhone" instead. O.o

But, I couldn't put it down! There are so many cool apps out there. And of course, I put almost the entire 4th season of Supernatural on it! :p

The lj-app is pretty much for posting and answering PMs. To view the entries, you'll still need Safari. I can't quite decide whether it's better than directly posting from Safari yet. It is a little faster I think, however, you are forced to use the html editor instead of the rich text editor that is available when posting from a web browser. The thing bugged me is once an entry is made, you can't use lj-app to make corrections. To edit the entry, you'll still have to use the browser.

Oh me too! I thought the news about mj was a hoax when I first read it, except my source was AP.

I was sad too, and I wasn't a huge fan either (to both Farrah and Michael). But they each in their ways influenced an era. For them to die in the same day, it felt like a definitive closure to the bygone days.
