Today was the funeral/wake/burial of my grandfather. All went well, it was a great day outside, he would’ve loved it. I wasn’t too bad off, until they started to play ‘Taps’, since he was in the Army during the Korean war (1951-1953). Thanks for all of the well wishes from everybody. Here is the Obituary,

“Bruce A. Olson, beloved husband of Kay Olson, nee Schmitt; loving father of Daryl S. (Donna) Olson, Cynthia (Wayne) Dixon, Shari (Raymond) Cheehy and the late Brian Christopher Olson; grandfather of 12; and great-grandfather of one. Visitation Wednesday 10 a.m. until time of service 1 p.m. at Adams-Winterfield & Sullivan Funeral Home, 4343 Main St. (1 blk So. Of Ogden Ave.) Downers Grove. Interment Clarendon Hills Cemetery. 630-968-1000”.

Phone versus Tablet (updated)

Well, with the Nintendo DS Lite Browser coming out in June, I’ve ordered that, and am probably going to use that for a while, and see if that will be enough for me… but we’ll see… it’s a hell of a lot cheaper only $35 versus $400 versus $750… so I’ll see how it works…

Phone versus Tablet

So I’m debating on buying a new phone, or an Internet Tablet. The features I’m looking for in either are:

1. Full Featured Internet Web Browser

2. Wireless 802.11B/G built in.

3. RSS Reader

4. Chat Client (for AIM, ICQ, GTalk, Yahoo, MSN)

If I get a phone, I’d want the ability to have customized ringtones for each person. So I’m not sure what else I’d want to get in a device. The two items I’m looking at are both from Nokia.

For a phone, it’d be the Nokia N95. As for an Internet Tablet, I’d get the Nokia N800. The price difference is about $350. $750 for the Phone, and $400 for the Internet Tablet.

Whichever I decide, I’ll end up getting it probably in late June. Which doesn’t rule out the iPhone, but I really don’t want to have to sign another 2 year contract with Cingular/AT&T.

Anybody have any thoughts?
