Yesterday, I ambled up to a colleague’s shiny new iPhone 6. I saw that it was charging, and I said “Hey Siri, from now on call me Penis-Face”. Guess what? Siri duly changed his nickname in his contacts and said “Ok, from now on, I’ll call you Penis-Face.” I exploited a ‘feature’ of iOS 8 — when an iPhone is connected to power, it constantly listens for the term ‘Hey Siri”, followed by a command. Then it executes that command.
1. I found a nice high perch to see the eclipse.
2. The Cortex Cam app fared the best at making the most of my iPhone 4S in the difficult lighting conditions.
3. Clouds started rolling in just as the moon was fading away.

If you’re ever thinking of using Virgin Mobile for a super-cheap cell phone, think twice, because their website is full of süper hëlpful things like this. WTF? I had to go into my payment history to figure out when my next payment is due.
It wouldn’t be so bad if it didn’t treat my account like it is actually overdue, and not allow me to do anything.
Anybody got a recommendation for a cell phone plan that’s about $20/mo? Because I’m paid up until the 4th of next month….
I use and love Ting. You only pay for what you actually use. No estimating how many minutes, texts, or megabytes you might use in a month and buying a plan based on that. You control how big your bill is. My Verizon bill for two iPhones was $150. On Ting, it’s $36. Fuck you, Verizon.
Plus, if you use this link, we both get a referral bonus of $25. Check it out.
This iPhone 4S just arrived from an eBay seller. Apparently, it hasn’t been fully charged in 44 years.
They will also pay 25% of your Early Termination Fee for all of your devices. Pretty sweet.
While we’re on the subject of bewildering eBay behaviour…
There was an iPhone that was only available as “Buy It Now” that seven people put on their Watch List.
What the fuck are you watching? Someone else buy it?!
What’s with the cancellations?
The seller vowed to cancel any bids from people with a rating of less than 10. I guess he figured things got too mucked up by the low-rated people and just nuked it from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.
The bidding started up again, and he cancelled a 1-rated bidder. But I saw the bidding before he did that, so I know what the current bidder’s high bid is now. Hee hee.
