Well it didnt actually die. It can still charge and hold a charge, but 25% of the original charge is left. The battery might last me a good 50 minutes on a full charge. This battery is on it’s way out and I’m forced to replace it sooner than I expected.
Ordered one from apple’s online education store today. The unit costs $143 to get >.< I also decided to get a spare A/C adapter so I can keep one at home and take the other one around with me, sort of like a spare. It’ll be kept at home, not in residence. :p
On the other news, School’s back (OH NOES!) Gotta get myself registered into quite a few courses. Game Dynamics 2 (since I got an INC for Game Computing 1, my mark still needs to be updated before I can get into Game Dynamics 2. Since I failed System Requirements course I’m going to have to enroll myself into the tutorial class they are apparently offering this semester to students who failed. That will set be back another $230. Also, I have to enroll into COMM313 (Technical Communications 2) since I never took the course to begin with. Thought I should get it out of the way this semester even though I should have done that last semester
This semester is going to be interesting to say the least. This time I am going to try to stop procrastinating all the time and actually attempt to attend all my classes and actually finish the work on time and maybe I’ll do good at the end and not need to worry about retaking the courses.. haha
P.S The battery in question is my MacBook Pro’s battery.
Fidos, a gsm based phone service that was bought by Rogers a few years ago, has announced it too will be selling the iPhone under the Fido brand. Though ultimately it’s still Rogers.
On other news, Rogers announces their iPhone plan. Though its not what I was hoping for, the data allowance is too low in my opinion. But here are the official data plans.
|Evenings and Weekends||Unlimited||Unlimited||Unlimited||Unlimited|
|Sent Text Messages||75||100||200||300|
|Additional Weekenday Minutes (per minute)||$0.35||$0.35||$0.25||$0.15|
|Additional Sent Text Messages||$0.15 each||$0.15 each||$0.15 each||$0.15 each|
*Additional data charges are $0.50 per MB for the first 60MB. $0.03 per MB afrerwards
Other essential plans such as Call Display, Who Called, more send text messages, Caller Ring Trax, call forwarding minutes and early evening calling is 15-20 dollars more.
*Update. Forgot to add. There is also a $6.95 charge for “system access fee”. Also it appears you are not limited to only iPhone plans. You can pick voice and data plan available on their website. As well as you do not have to buy Data plan (although it would make the iPhone just another cell phone without data plan) Without a data plan, using the 3g network costs 5 cents per kilobyte or 51 dollars per megabyte. so it would be best to buy a data plan.
Also the announcements of the plan has triggered and uproar in potential iPhone customers in Canada creating ruinediphone.com. A site created around a petition to rogers to make the plans more fair and comparable to AT&T’s plans and pricing. So far over 30 000 users have signed it. All it needs now is for Rogers to cave into the demand and lower prices on the iPhone AND include unlimited data.
Rogers has also updated their pricing plans to include unlimited local calling in the first 3 months.
keep checking Roger’s iPhone plan for up to date plan details
So I’ve been slacking off on my blog posting lately, but I’m still alive and well! A lot has happened over the course of 2 months, such as my birthday was 5 days ago. I’m 20 years old! I got a few new games such as World of War Craft, Guitar Hero 2 and 3, Need for Speed Pro Street, World in Conflict, Half-Life 2 Black Box, Crysis, Call of Duty 4 and I’m hoping to pick up Unreal Tournament 3 tomorrow if I get the chance to go to the mall.
School work has been decent, dropped one of my courses which was Operating System since I Bombed the mid-term, so I shall deal with that next year and hopefully do much better. Other than that, the other hard course would be Critical Thinking and IT Concepts. English class is a joke. Math and Java are the only class I’m doing good in. Hopefully in the end I’ll end up passing all my courses so I can move onto my second semester courses!
In computer news, I upgraded my MacBook Pro to OSX 10.5, also known as Leopard. So far so good. Hadn’t run into any problems as of yet. I also started playing World of Warcraft even though I said I wouldn’t try it. It’s alright, I just don’t see the addiction to it like a lot of people have. It’s a costly game to play though since you are required to pay monthly or semi-annually for the game. My character is currently level 19 I think, I haven’t logged on in a while now.
Still contemplating whether or not I should go skydiving or not. It sounds fun, but costs alot of money, not to mention my semi fear of heights. We shall see when the time comes.
Anyway I think I’ve ranted on long enough. Until next time!
