For roughly $150 a month I get told that I’m not allowed to switch phones, even if I’m miserable with a phone I’ve had for less then 6 months. I made the HUGE mistake of switching from the iPhone 3GS to the Samsung Infuse (Android) - at first I felt it was a great move because the one thing the Infuse does have going for it, is the mult-media features, HD Camera, HD Video, a light for the camera, the whole nine, which is a great fit with the line of work I am in constantly snapping pics and video to create a buzz.
The downside? The apps crash constantly, there are a number of apps that are available on the iPhone that are not on the Android, which is extremely disappointing. The battery lasts an whole hour, so I’ve been forced to buy multiple backups just to have enough juice to get through the day of chatting, text, etc.
I called AT&T Wireless today to attempt to send my Samsung Infuse back in exchange for an iPhone 4, I also asked why in the world my phone was eating up 2GB a month in data, when NEVER happened with my iPhone. They claim I don’t have my wifi connected and that’s the reason for the data usage, I disagree, but it gets me no where with them, as usual.
So needless to say, I feel trapped with a phone that sucks and AT&T doesn’t want to do anything to help me other then open an additional line up and sell me a brand new iPhone for $199, gee is a swift kick to the shorts available too?
Shame on you AT&T, shame on you. Maybe one day you’ll understand what it means to be a “Thank You Economy" company and you’ll listen and care about your customers, then guess what? They’ll never leave.

The latest rumors of Facebook starting to charge are NOT true. Facebook was designed as a FREE platform and will remain that way. Facebook makes money by selling ads on their site which generated $1.86 billion in 2010 alone.
Rest assured, you will not wake up tomorrow and be prompted for your debit or credit card.
I know most of you are used to my “5am ROLL CALL” tweets or at least some ungodly hour of the morning, but today I was a little late on 5am (shocker, yes I know), however around 530am I was up and at em’ and as part of my normal morning routine I was catching up on all of the Facebook posts that I didn’t get a chance to read yesterday. During that time I read a post that my friend Mina Shah wrote regarding what is would look like to wake up at 5am (weekdays only) for a period of 60 days straight.
What would be the result of getting an extra 10 hours per week to sharpen your game and improve your life altogether? Needless to say I was intrigued by all of this so I commented on Mina’s post via Facebook - I mentioned in my comment to her and a few others that had posted before me, that we should use the Twitter hashtag #Team5am and tweet daily for the next 60 days on the results and goals we are reaching by staying committed to 5am for 60 days straight, based on the response I got from Mina and others on the thread, its GAME ON at 5am for the next 60 days!
I remember it like it was yesterday. I was driving to work while living in the suburbs of Chicago. Mancow Muller was doing his normal off the wall morning show when all of the sudden he announces that an airplane has flown into the side of the World Trade Center.
