New blowhorn

You may remember this post from a year ago. Well the Pre held up for exactly one year before the wheels started falling off. Yesterday I caved in to the peer pressure and ridicule of my Bride and traded up to this;

She has been taunting me with the awesomeness of her Droid powered machine and after spending a solid 16 hrs with the new EVO I think she was right. This thing will no doubt increase my efficiency by multiples of ten. When I talk about my efficiency what I am referring to is my new abilities to miss calls and messages while riding, check the weather in multiple locations for riding purposes, check pricing on bike parts, map/track and log my rides, upload pictures of my rides strait to "The Facebook" and contact riding buddies using multiple methods about the next ride.

I am really glad I got this, it's going to be a lifesaver.

16 hours Mark? I think you may have a problem.

Chris just convinced Scott to buy him an iPad. He's a tiny bit obsessed too.

Kristin- it's a disease.

JR- shamed by the coolest guy I know, that may take some time to recover from.

I was pretty happy with my Droid until a friend recently forwarded an article to me from...some scientific journal, stating that iPhone owners get laid 2x that of Droid owners. (yep, Kristin, I said it). After doing some back-of-the-envelope math I realized that would be a good thing in my life. I'm now in the market for someone's sloppy seconds on an Apple.
