Technology breakthrough's (as least for me)
Thought I'd share a few tech breakthroughs.
Tech Breakthrough 1
Just got a Rogers Rocket Stick about a month ago (it's a USB wireless stick) I set my prawn gear about 10min ago and my location is 50deg01.65N 124deg56.725W off twin islands, desolation sound and I get great 3G internet coverage. So for the Pacific Northwester's, the coverage is very good, although if I go more into desolation sound, the coverage is limited and spotty. I know this is not exactly a tech breakthrough but this new rocket is on a 3G network, the price is real good and the speed is real good and I can stay out here and get my work done as I am doing now.
Tech Breakthrough 2 (not so much)
I tried (out here) hooking up to the new Google Latidudes "Locate me" thingy and when I plug in my phone number in the Google setup window I get back a text message to my cell phone which is what should happen. But when I reply with a text message I get an error message "Invalid Destination", so I guess it doesn't work out here or it doesn't like my LG cell phone or it doesn't like Canada, who knows. I also tried plugging in my Rogers Rocket number and it took it but who knows what happened after that.
Tech Breakthrough 3
Just got a call from the marina. They found my keys!. That was great and I didn't know I lost them. They found them in the pad lock to the dumpster on the wharf. To find me, they pushed the remote panic button and my SUV started honking at em. I owe them a bottle of wine when I get back, so there is a cost to these new techy advancements.
