Went to check out the One X at the local AT&T corporate store today (on Townsend near AT&T park.)
The white demo unit was dead but they were nice enough to charge it up for me.
Nice phone, striking design, very light. The screen is beautiful and it seems very fast and smooth.
It well be available May 6, and I'm thinking of picking one up and handing my skyrocket down to my daughter, but I'm not sure I can live with the fact that it only has 16G of storage and no option to add a micro SD card.

Well, not a bad week after all.
Ainsley had her 4 week doctor's appointment. She's doing great, and now weighs 7 pounds, 14 ounces. Which means she put on 1 pound, 11 ounces in 2 weeks.
Bob, Rod, Milan (my Sox auditor) and myself got together for beer and appetizers at the Fault Line. Milan had to leave early (something about his wife being hungry) but a good time was had by all. I tried the Cask Conditioned, the Best Bitters, and the Stout and quite enjoyed them all. The tempura Ahi Tuna Rolls are most excellent, and the Calamari (something I don't usually go in for) was actually quite nice.
With all the trash talking, objectification of women, and general bad behaviour, I'm afraid it was a bit like a 3 hour Man Show (Milan excepted.)
My Sox audit went as well as can be expected, and although I have quite a to-do list, Milan was (as always) entirely reasonable, pragmatic, and not one bit pedantic.
Despite no longer working with Bob, I think I had lunch with him 3 times since the layoff. I expect this will drop off once he quits his lollygagging and obtains gainful employment once again.
Intriguing example of accidental art / social commentary.
Apparently due to systems problems on Second Life, the textures for this models eyes are missing, and have been substituted with error messages.
It does seem that Second Life (and to a lesser extent the entire MMORG trend) are really beginning to resemble the virtual worlds written about by authors such as William Gibson.
I'm going to have to check out second life. Seems like a virtual Burning Man meets the Sims.
