Wicked Wind

According to the National Weather Service we’re supposed to get high winds toda with gusts up to over 60mph.

It already looks like we’ve got gusts over 40mph via this link to the Mauna Lani weather station.

And if you look at the Puako live video feed on this link it looks like it’s blowing and getting choppy out there. Not a good day to be on the ocean and time to tie down loose things.

Bossy Flossie

Hurricane Flossie

For friends and family in Hawaii be prepared as Hurricane Flossie is on the way and she’s a big one, a category 4 hurricane with 135mph winds. Right now it’s scheduled to track south of the Big Island but from the path it will create some huge ocean surge for the islands, especially the Big Island.

Visit the NOAA tracking site to stay posted on this nasty storm. Travis, you may want to get that surfboard ready.

Cellphone Crossroads

Okay, my Verizon Wireless contract is up in 10 days. The question is, do I dump VZW and jump onto the iPhone bandwagon or should I get the Palm Treo 755p when that comes out (could be the next few weeks or next few months when it’s released). The Treo has many more features and faster cellphone data speed but the iPhone has Apple’s beautiful interface. Steve Jobs is right, most of us hate our cellphones and most of us have one. There is no perfect cellphone but how close can the iPhone come? I think I’ll wait until next month, of course that’s when I’ll be visiting the Apple Store in New York and fully within the Reality Distortion Field. Is resistance futile?
