I iPhone

12. Juli 2008 Keine Kommentare

Last friday was the day the iPhone 3G has been sold in Switzerland.

Swisscom was to organize a preshopping event, starting at midnight. People started queing already at 2pm and when I got there at 7.30 pm I was the 150th person in the queue.

Sadly the event was badly organized, except the snacks. Nobody took care of the queing. Yes, we are not in England, so people don’t know about queing.

The result was that people like me waited for 7 hours straight while other people just walked in and got one. They made me angry and at the same time they made me feel like a fool.

My last resort was the early-bird sale, starting at 6.30 am.

I got up at 5.50 and started the laundry machine. Yes, it was laundry day and I got just 3 hours of sleep, but laundry is important too. 😉

I got on my bike and rode to the nearest Swisscom-Shop, about 300m and I was the 8th person in line. 5 minutes later there were already 20 wanna-be-customers like me in line. A quarter hour later the shop manager
announced that there were only 13 devices at this agency, so I finally was among the lucky ones!!

An hour later I was at home, waking the kids for the kindergarten and then, only then, I could initiate my brand new iPhone over iTunes, sponsored as a birthday present.

And my kids finally got a new puzzle box;)

When you have waited for a long time, so long that time does not matter anymore

Jazoon and IPod

26. Juni 2007 Keine Kommentare

Unbelievable! Luck seems to love me! First I won a ticket to jazoon and today I won an IPod Nano at the Jazoon Conference. To be exactly from Edoras. I hope lady luck does not change her mind and kick my assbutt tomorrow. In that case I’ll enjoy it until then 😉

I took a good look at the edoras framework yesterday and I have let the people there explain to me what it does and what it’s capabilities are. I was impressed. At sunday they had a tutorial in which they have built a functional ticket-system within a few hours. I don’t feel obligated to ad for edoras but I really thought it was worth exploring for me. It’s not one of these ‚2 and a half click and my webapp is finished‘-frameworks no, it looks fairly complex but one can get into it very fast if familiar with concepts of ORM, MVC etc. In addition to the IPod I also won a training/teaching session for the edoras framework so I will get a chance to do that.
