These were the wicked clouds I saw when I was on my way to Fantastic Sams. Neat huh?

With the whole AT&T debacle with the MMS and tethering I started thinking of other features that I would appreciate.
- Stop a text while sending. What’s the purpose of the sending bar anyways? Is it there to appease the person that their text is actually sending?
- Create new photo albums and have the ability to organize your pictures.
- Emoticons, corny I know.
- Basic formatting in the Notes and Mail application: ordered/unordered lists and bold/italics/underline.
- Better email sync. I utilize the All Mail folder in Gmail quite a bit and whenever I read something in that folder I have to re-sync or go into my Inbox to clear the new message.
- Ability to edit Notes in iTunes. Currently I have it sync to Oulook.
- Over the air updates. This might not work with AT&T’s infrastructure 🙁
- Custom text message sounds.
- Support for multiple Exchange accounts.
- Additional button the side of the phone to take pictures.
- Support for multiple email signatures.
- Process Monitor/Task Manager to kill hung processes and to clear RAM.
- New carrier?
My two cents for now.
Train Brain has one purpose in life and that is to help you find the next light-rail train in Minneapolis and tell you when that train will arrive at your destination. The light-rail currently has 17 stops between downtown Minneapolis and the Mall of America. Train Brain covers all of these stops.
If you’ve every used the Metro Transit website or their mobile web app you know that it can be cumbersome and sometimes time consuming when you’re on the go. Fortunately, Train Brain is here to help will all your light-rail needs.
Train Brain utilizes the Metro Transit light-rail schedule and GPS to give you an easy to use interface to find out what time and where your next train will arrive. Lets say you’re not at the light-rail station and you want to know when a train will arrive at any of the 17 stations. You can do that too! The interface allows you to select from anyone of the available stations.
- GPS integration
- Covers all light-rail stations
- Ability to choose northbound or southbound routes
- Get directions to the light-rail station via Google Maps
- Cheap! $1.99 and well worth it!
Additional Note: This will work with iPod Touches as long as you have a data connection (Wi-Fi).

While reading my random blogs I came across a beta web app called Radiusly. The website was very simple, almost too simple. There was the logo and then a “request invite” button/link.
Upon clicking it I was redirected to my twitter page and my status text box was populated with “What does @bestbuy @virginamerica and @intuit have in common? Send me an invite to Radiusly so I can find out: www.radiusly.com”. To request my invite I would simply have to click “update”.
So… How is this done? Create a graphic, button, or even a simple HTML link and add the URL info:
Click here to change your status to “Hello World”.
Enjoy and remember… keep it under 140 characters 🙂
