I’m not exactly sure what the proper mourning timeline is for a scale dying. I don’t want to seem too insensitive and immediately replace my dear old friend but then again I don’t want to be alone. As I stood in the bathroom staring at the empty spot where my scale used to sit I began to reminisce about all the great times my scale and I had together. That scale saw me through a lot of dark times but also was there to cheer me on as the weight began to fall off. Now here I have to take the rest of this journey alone.
I’ll admit it; I am an insatiable techno-geek who is always looking for ways to add new technology into my life. They say the first step to recovery is actually admitting you have a problem. I wouldn’t exactly say it was a problem but according to my wife and family it is.
So when I went on something as simple as a diet to change my eating habits and become healthier I was sure that this would be one area that would be relatively technology free. I mean really how could anyone possibly add technology to something as simple as eating?
Prior to the iPad announcement I predicted Apple would introduce a new version of the iPhone OS. This prediction was based upon the rumor the iPad would use the iPhone operating system.
Based upon the introduction and subsequent reviews by those who have actually seen an iPad, the device is indeed using the iPhone operating system. This was further validated when Apple introduced a new Software Development Kit (SDK) that included calls for using the iPad’s new features.
Like many other technology users, I looked forward to the Apple new product introduction. Usually I don’t get too caught up in all of the hype that accompanies one of these announcements.
I’ve been to enough Apple events to know the company and in particular Steve Jobs has these things down to a science. They maintain secrecy over all details of the event and subtly let out slight details at a rate that ensures the general public is spun up to a frenzy.
Rumors are flying about potential announcements Apple will make during their invitation only event this week. While many of these rumors center on the proposed Apple tablet device, there are other indications that the announcement will also include an update to the Apple iPhone OS that is used on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and if rumors are correct the tablet.
As an owner of an iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS as well as several iPod Touch devices, I am eagerly awaiting the newest version of the iPhone OS. When Apple introduced iPhone OS 3.0 I was ecstatic.
