Enought about the damn iPhone already!!

Dont get me wrong, I love the iPhone - but I'm do damn sick and tired or the internet hype for the product, that I almost dont want one.

I've been an Apple fan for a little while now and I generally like reading Apple rumour sites. But the iPhone rumours have been flooding in for about 18 months now, and I am sick and tired of reading about them.

In other news - A lot of the lighting electrical work has been done on the house. The electrician still needs to come back for a second day, but it should all be done after that. I wont harp on about it too much, but its incredible that the different lights have made to the feel of the house... the old tungsten lights with their uniform light throw are just horrible compared with some halogens. We are yet to figure out where to make them point, but we love them none the less.

In regards to work - I have decided to nominate to stay within the Citizenship branch..... it seems crazy to me now, since I have been pretty mysirable since starting in this section, and yet I think there is a lot of potential in staying there. My outlook has changed a lot over the last couple of weeks and things seem pretty damn promising at the moment. I might regret this decision yet, but only time will tell.

Makan bought himself a Macbook Pro yesterday (well, he ordered it at least). Its hard to believe that over the last 3 years, almost all of my friends (and several of my work collegues) have moved over to Apple. I guess we are all getting older and cant be bothered playing around with PCs anymore. We just want something that works, with the least hassle and timewasting. Apple just fits the bill for that :-)

I bought Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles today. It fits the bill perfectly for my new Casual Gamer approach to my video based entertainment. I have developed a bit of a fondness for the Resident Evil series, since finishing number 4 a few months back. I think Umbrella will be fantastic, and I am looking forward to having some two-player fun, especially with the volume turned up :P
