Smart Phone: Samsung Omnia From Verizon

When the Blackberry Storm came out from Verizon I was so excited I went that day to try it out. Unfortunately I was disappointed with the keyboard. Maybe it was because I had been using an iPod Touch for a year and the keyboard was much smoother. I ended up getting the LG Dare which by the way is a great phone. I just wanted something more, where I could click on links from my email and sync it with my Microsoft Outlook.

Not long after the introduction of the Blackberry Storm another touch phone came out from Verizon which hasn’t been advertised much but I find to be a great phone. That phone is the Samsung Omnia i910. It is a Windows Mobile device with a touch screen that doesn’t have the click like the Blackberry Storm but more smooth like the iPod Touch. That’s probably why I like it so much. The keyboard does vibrate when you type but it is not annoying.

Now, there are things that I didn’t like so much and have had to change. I call it pimping out my Samsung Omnia. Not all of Windows Mobile is designed for touch screen and there is a stylus that needs to be used at times unless you change some settings and buy some programs to make the Omnia work better.

First off I want to share a video with you of how the Omnia looks right out of the box. This video is from Phone Scoop a great site if you are looking for reviews and latest news about mobile phones. They also have great a forum to help with selecting and using your mobile phone.

Last fall, the Woodbine, Md., mother of three figured out a great way to get some: online giveaways. She has entered about 40 so far. She has won T-shirts, cleaning products, a small portable vacuum, olive oil, beef jerky and -- best of all -- a Nintendo DS on Web sites such as, and

"The lure of free stuff is quite appealing," she said. "I never considered myself a winner. I don't think I ever won bingo. My name was never drawn from a hat. However, I've been extraordinarily successful at the giveaways."

The recession has emboldened a certain kind of consumer: The mooch. With dwindling retirement savings, a higher cost of living and wobbly job market, they don't just want discounts on items they used to pay full price for without a second thought. They want freebi…


A RECENT NOR EASTER HIT THE NEW ENGLAND COAST AND AS THOUGHT THIS WRECK SURFACED AGAIN FROM ITS BURIED DEMISE--The skeleton only appears periodically - the last time was in 2013 - always after a significant coastal storm, and always attracting attention. Archaeological work conducted in 1980 indicated the wreck is a sloop of about Revolutionary War age. It is likely a “pinky,” a type of vessel with a high, narrow stern and square rigging easily maneuverable along the coast of Maine. Pinkies were popular as fishing and cargo vessels. The first sighting of the skeleton was in 1958, and then it has surfaced periodically right up to the present day - and usually after a good spring nor’easter. Word spread quickly about this sighting via social media, and people came over the weekend and on Monday as well. First, they had to navigate the seaweed- and rock-strewn streets of York Beach. They were also precluded from parking cars in most of the Ellis Park lot, which was buried under a layer …


I've always felt a special fascination for mosaics. From Roman tile compositions to current digital collages, I think they're an awesome artistic expression.
That's why I was so happy when I found Andreamosaic.
This tool enables you to create amazing mosaics from your digital pictures in a very easy way.
It requires having a large collection of photos to use as tiles, that's true. Fortunately the installation file already includes a pack of 500 sample photos that produce excellent results.
The program's interface is quite dull; in fact it's simply a gray window with too much text on it. But the mechanics are easy to understand so you'll be creating your own mosaics in no time!
Plus, the program includes a 20-page manual that explains everything thoroughly. Just remember that the more tiles you use, the longer it will take to generate the mosaic and the larger the final file will be.
