NYC-> Cancun -> NYC -> Swineflu -> Tamiflu

28 04 2009

I got back to NYC from 4 glorious days in Cancun late last night and had a bad cough and sore throat. So today I went to see a doctor just to be safe.  While I’m almost positive I just have a normal cold or flu, I was prescribed Tamiflu, given face masks, and sentenced to stay home from work for 10 days. I went to three and called three more pharmacies around the East Village until I finally found one that had Tamiflu in-stock. (Walgreens on Astor Place is where I found it).  B

At least I had a blast in Cancun, Swine-flu or no swine-flu!

Stereo Bluetooth headphones + iPhone 3.0 = WIN!

1 04 2009


One of the coolest things about the upcoming iPhone 3.0 software is support for A2DP Stereo Bluetooth devices (FINALLY!).  I just updated to the new iPhone 3.0 beta 2 firmware, So I picked up a pair of Motorola bluetooth headphones from Newegg for just under $40 to see how it works.  One word – awesome.   Finally iPhone can do what every other smartphone could since 2005, stream music wirelessly to headphones or speakers.  After a painless pairing of the headphones  to the iPhone, I was jammin to my iPod tracks sans wires almost instantly.  Sound quality was more than adequate and the range indoors was about 25-30 feet.  Outdoor use is another ballgame however, with the headphones getting choppy or cutting out with the iPhone in my pants pocket.  I moved the phone to my jacket pocket and the connection cleared right up.  Much better performance than on my Win-mo phones in the past.  All in all a great move from Apple, albeit two years in the making.

The new solo album from Swedish electronic artist Karin Dreijer Andersson, whom you might remember as the lead in brother-sister duo THE KNIFE, is utterly amazing.  Give it a go!
