I downloaded iBooks tonight to see what kind of content they had in their store. It turns out that there are quite a few free selections that I’m going to enjoy reading! I started Freud’s “Dream Psychology, Psychoanalysis for Beginners” tonight. I’m 30 pages in right now and I think that soon there are going to be some topics that soar right over my head. I’m quite fascinated by dreams and dream-science, so even if it’s a difficult read it should still offer rewarding information. It’s not like Freud to put me to bed. Though under the sheets is when I seem to explore his works.
Also added to my book shelf tonight… Macbeth and The Tempest. I couldn’t help by adding these to the eCollection. I’m sure I’ll continue to find useful texts this year… especially for my theatre history class. Maybe I’ll even save a few bucks?
My new iPhone was delivered today, which made me quite happy. I’ve had a really great relationship with my BlackBerry over the many moons I’ve had it, but I too must jump on the iPhone bandwagon. I’ve had a pretty positive day with the new device, but for some reason I cannot seem to hold a wifi connection here at home. Other routers seem to be very happy with my iDevice, but my home router refuses to play with it. After several hours of researching and experimenting I’m nowhere near closer to understanding the problem. You don’t suppose it could be one of those mysterious ghost problems that vanishes suddenly without warning, do you? I suppose I’ll just have to keep an eye on it for now.
I had a very humorous moment to myself in the family room today. I was opening the iPhone and activating it through my provider’s website, and when I was finished it told me to plug the device into iTunes to finish the activation. I stared at the screen and blinked. Guess who doesn’t have a Windows machine in order to run iTunes?? *raises hand*
In my two solid hours of research I found a single product for activating my phone in a linux environment — and the instructions were bogus. After what seemed like ages of stumbling through every possible combinations of settings you could possibly imagine, I was able to activate my device. Today’s lesson: It’s most certainly possible to do just about anything on linux… if you love troubleshooting, problem solving and possess an endless amount of time to dedicate to the issue.
