With iPhone to Spare

I like my new iPhone quite a lot. The best new feature is speed. Man that thing is fast. I finally moved Rhonda’s account over to my old phone so now she’s using my old 16GB iPhone with OS 3.0. But now I’ve got an extra 8GB iPhone that I’m not entirely sure what to do with. Sell it on eBay? or Craigslist? Give it away? It’s a gift with bite, because it comes with a $20/month price tag for the data plan. So I’m not sure what to do with it.

The other new feature is the compass. It’s interesting, but in and of itself not entirely useful. Maps' use of the compass is very cool, because it will pivot the map based on your direction. It makes it a little easier following directions. The compass app itself is just directional. I’m pretty much capable of doing that on my own so maybe that’s why it’s lost its charm on me. Although it does show Latitude and Longitude as well so maybe I’ll start geocaching with it. I’ve always wanted to go, but never had a GPS. Maybe I now have a new hobby.
