What lies below is the I-10 Freeway linking the Pacific Ocean with Florida. We Phoenicians just traverse our little part of that 2,460 miles.
Who doesn't love a good conference call every day. You know the drill.
Who just joined?
Are we missing anyone?
Can anyone hear me?
Sorry was on mute.
*sudden screeching feedback*
Whoever's eating can you mute your phone.
Let's table that.
Let's take this offline.
*paying for starbucks while not on mute guy*
Let me just share my screen.
Sorry you cut out, can you repeat that?
It seems like it's been a long desert summer. After months of 100° days, today was the first morning we could open the windows in the house.
So that's what breeze feels like.
So let's see, the 2019 version of this list is probably something like:
The Police and Soft Cell reunions are done and over and I missed that boat. Partly because I didn't get to see The Police when they played Phoenix. Partly because Soft Cell's reunion consisted of a London gig only.
The Smiths I don't hold out hope for. And let's be honest, Morrissey's recent questionable take on life has left a sour taste anyway. Would I even go? Dunno.
So I hold out hope for Duran Duran and Numan. Both still tour. Could happen.
Did you hear there was an Apple event this week?
A combination of event presentation fatigue and a mature product line have soured the experience somewhat for me. I still read the recaps but I'm certainly not glued to the live stream as I would have been in years past. It's just not that exciting anymore.
That said, (looks down at current phone), this year is likely phone upgrade year. And regardless of how I feel about the events I'm still all in with the Apple ecosystem, so what to do?
My iPhone 7 has stood the test of time. It still does everything I want and does it well. But I'm beginning to glance sideways at the new shiny. Especially the improvement in the camera tech. The iPhone 11 Pro is a little rich for my blood, but going from a 7 to a stock 11 would be a pretty significant upgrade.
And look at that, T-Mobile are already starting their "trade in your phone…" marketing campaign.
