I finally got around to having an intentional day of sabbath yesterday.
What did I do?
Hung out with my daughter (Ikea breakfast and a community center for kids)
Indulged in a large lunch with my parents
Took an afternoon nap
Read Scripture and some light reading on rest
Fiddled with my new ipod touch
The iPod Touch is my first apple product. I’ve been mostly been using a Palm for the past 5+ years as a pda and music player.
I’ve only been messing around with it the past day, but here’s the latest on it, and you apple nerds can tell me if there’s anything life altering I’m missing.
The mail client is fetching from my gmail account
I’m using something called nuevasync to sync my google calendar and gmail contacts
Evernote app installed to sync to my laptop/desktop notes
Other apps currently installed – wordpress, facebook, youversion bible reader, obama 08, idoodle, flashlight, and a whole bunch of free games.
I’ve got 3 different “to-do’ apps, 3 different im applications (palringo, IM+, and Fring), any one have suggestions on what’s worked best?
Some related questions:
Is there a way for me putting mp3 talks or sermons into the ipod without mixing it up with songs? ie, some way of inserting it into the podast section even though they weren’t podcast downloaded?
Is there something that can make the player auto-shutoff? ie. yesterday I took my nap with mark driscoll yelling at me… and he kept yelling long after I dozed off.
Is there a way of syncing the photos with picasaweb albums or flickr?
Are there workarounds with playing flash video? I tried iTransmogrify to no avail…
