Day 5 of 30 Days of Recognition – Watch Phone
First off, I must tell you that I am exhausted. I took a 7AM flight this morning which means I wake up a little after 4AM. Throw in a middle of the night visitor (Dalia) and I am whooped. On the plane, we got delayed on the runway (good thing I woke up so early!). Since you cannot have electronic devices on during your taxi out to takeoff, I picked up the Sky Mall magazine. I am going to write about a specific product that I found in this catalog, but you could fill a book on the stupid stuff they sell. The watch phone caught my eye because 50 years ago, a watch that worked as a phone seemed like a really cool idea, in fact, my first reaction to the product was that it still might be kind of cool to have a watch phone, but then I realized that my cell phone already has a clock built into it, plus a calculator, it can browse the internet, and take pictures, if I bought a watch with a phone in it, I might as well buy a typewriter that has Microsoft Word or an abacus with a built in calculator. Plus, just imagine how crazy it would be to pull up to someone who was stopped at a traffic light yelling into his watch, it makes the Bluetooth people almost look normal in comparison. How many times have you seen a person talking to themselves and you literally think they are insane until you see that little device in their ear. Rule number 1, don’t buy stuff that makes you look crazy.
Day 6 of 30 Days of Recognition – Marriott Marquis in Atlanta
This hotel is absolutely stunning. I tried to take pictures with my cell phone since I forgot my camera, but realized my cell phone camera lens gets filled with lint from my pockets. I have attached my cell phone pictures and a picture by someone with more photo talent and a better camera (probably a toaster equipped with a camera bought in the Sky Mall magazine), try to figure out the professional picture. When I checked into my room, these were the magazines on the end table. I immediately thought one was porn, but realized it was titled, “Where” (see pic of mags below).
All the pictures are of the inside of the hotel (some looking up and one looking down).
