iPad: My Take..

Weighing in at a mirror 1.5 pounds, and the gorgeous 9.7" LED-backlight screen will catch anyone’s attention at first glance. The question: Tablet to change all tablets? Or just another failed attempt? I'll start by saying that this device has been talked about for three years, and it’s nice to see 'most' of the rumors come to an end. Do I really think this is the tablet to change all tablets? No, I think it is just a step into that direction. Allow me to elaborate. First generation model; we know by this time next year we’ll all be drooling over the second generation. If this device were to be perfect from the start, do you think we’d even give thought to purchasing a newer one? I didn’t think so. What makes it a good start to the right direction? Its simplicity: A very familiar interface known to current iPhone and iPod touch users. Compatibility: Simple to download applications off of the app-store and all applications on there are compatible on the device, straight out of the box and syncs with both pc’s and Macs. Pricing: Apple was smart this time around, it’s in everyone’s tablet budget (if you’re not a tight ass). Redesigned applications: The main apps are completely different then what you have seen on the iPhone. Viewing movies is beyond beautiful with its 9.7” display, giving you 720p HD viewing! You can even view YouTube videos in HQ or HD (if available). Calendar looks stunning; your day-planner in a rather sleek device. iPod app looks like a scaled down version of iTunes 9… To learn more about these and other revamped applications, go over to

Star Trek in beautiful 720p (HD)

Now for the things I would of loved to have seen. Number one on this list is, multitasking! That’s right, and the iPad is very much capable of doing this, with its 1gh processor. How would this come in handy? Simple; lets say you’re viewing a movie, and you want to browse the web too. Problem, you would have to pause the movie and open safari. My vision: Pulling up your browser, and having your movie side by side at the same time. Another scenario: is playing on your device, and you want to open up your facebook app to see what the friends are up to. Well I’d be able to exit and look to see who’s on. Video conferencing; this device could of easily had a camera mounted in the front. Maybe next year? A redesigned UI; I’m not saying there is anything wrong with the current, but I would of liked to had seen a cross fade between leopard and the iPhone OS, not just a larger version of the iPhone OS its self. This one I could deal without, but it would be nice to see: Dual dock connection, to charge in both vertical and horizontal. Flash support; this product is practically a laptop… Why don’t we have flash support on it? I can see it as a simple firmware update, but still, out of the box is so much better. At least YouTube is a good source for most of my entertainment. 

You heard my opinion on the device; what is yours? Please do let me know, I always enjoy seeing people different views on Apple and their prroducts.

First Days Back To Classes

Well today marks my third day back to college.. Great! Just what I wanted, but its not all that bad. Except I am missing a book for a class and we are already using it. Fucking awesome, no? Yeah, no; The book costs a hundred dolors. I don't have that kind of money, and I get the feeling that my father is going to be an asshole and not get me the book. You know what, thats fucking fine, not like I need it to pass. Whats that? I do? Dammit! If he doesn't want to supply me with the only book I am missing then he can go fuck himself. Honestly, its not like he paid for this semester anyway. Plus he got it easy last semester, this years cost $900, last was $600...(Why am I ranting on about this?) Back to classes and what not! Okay, so my first class is English and I have a super cool teacher. Sweat too; I think thats do to her old age, but she is seriously the coolest old person I know. My second class (Oh, by the way: These classes are on MWF) is Math.. Its not that I don't like math, it's just I have to like the teachers teaching method. So far there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with hers. Well see how long that lasts.. Now third in the day is reading; the teacher seems like a super bitch. Yeah, it is possible to be that much of one. She will eat your soul (thankfully I already ate mine) if you have any electronic devices out. Onto my Tuesday/Thursday schedule; so what does this consist of? My classes I will enjoy the most. The first out of two is 'Web Page Design I'. The teacher seems good, I'm going to awesome she is from China or something in the lines of that. because I highly doubt her first language was English. I'm not saying she speaks it bad; I am just saying that its not all there. Now the second of them is Microcomputer Applications. Which to me seems like the biggest joke in the book! I will Ace that class like no tomorrow.. Except for the obvious fact that there will be a tomorrow. The teacher even said if you did all the assignments early and turn them in, he could give you the exam early. How awesome is that? Really is; I could finish that class in a month and only have four classes to worry about. So I am going to do that. Alright, now onto what is really important about college.. The women, thats is correct my friends. Why is this? Well easy answer, no matter who you are there are tons of women who will cream over you. You just need to look around, join a club or something like that. Start up a random conversation with the hot chick who sits next to you. Don't be shy to ask if she has a facebook; that like the new "getting her number".. Okay, not as promising though, but it is a step closer to it. (Random thought: How many words are in this blog?) I don't want to let this run on any longer then it has, so for now have an excellent day.

My Journal(s)!

If you watch 'Jons Mind' on YouTube, the you'd know that one of my resolutions was to keep a journal..Fun? Not really, its a pain in the ass. I know I enjoy writing, but I enjoy having an audience even more. So I was thinking what if I posted them on here!.. Well at least parts of them. My mind can be a dark place sometime children, so dark that it might eat your soul. Or not, but still there are just some things in my life that will stay "private". Why I quoted the word 'private' I will never know myself.. Anyway, on to the first post.

Day 1:

Well today was the first day of the new year, and it was rather uneventful. I'm not complaining either. It's rare when I don't get bothered every ten seconds by mother/or step-dad. It's also rear when I stay in my pj's all day. What a great thing to do, along with playing xbox live all day. Now if everyday was like this, but then that'd just get quite tired some.. So 2010! The new year, what will it bring me? I wish I knew. But we'll have to wait and see, because sometimes that's all we can really do... Wait, I'm tired of waiting. This year I'm going to make sure things go my way. Sure, I may fail every so often. But that doesn't mean give up on what I want. 2010.. You're going to be my friend.

Okay, so that was my first entry.. Now here is from day 6

Today, was another day of living and another day of breathing. What made today special? Nothing.. I mean sure, I got to hang with my friends. But I still feel like I'm missing something in this life. Someday I hope to find it, her. As said "Most days of the year are unremarkable. They begin, and the end, with no lasting memories made in between. Most days have no impact on the course of life." This is so true, but there are days that do have lasting memories, and I know it will come for me. Soon? Not likely, bit given time it will.. Anyway, enough depressing shit. So, I uploaded today's Jons Mind.. Sadly didn't record one for tomorrow. I will do something though. I've gained more subscribers!! It's exiting. Hopefully I'll end with a good amount by this year. Till tomorrow, goodnight.

Alright, so this is a deeper side of me. Kind of fucking emo, no?.. I'd say yes. But anyway, I will be posting some of my journal entries for you'll to see. Till my next post, let me know if you keep a journal and what kind of secrets do you have!

Well Hello!

Some of you'll may already know me, for those of you who don't: I am Jon!.. Okay, now who the hell is Jon? I'm just some random guy who lives in San Antonio, TX. Social networking seems to be one of my favorite ways to use up time, and writing done my thoughts as well.. Thats why this blog is born. I am not new to the blog world, nor to blogger, but this time I'm going to stick around. What are some of the blog sites I've used? Tumblr, Blogger, LiveJournal, etc... I seem to always wind right back here. Now I did mention I live social networking; so where else can 'Jons Mind' be found? Look no further then Twitter, DailyBooth, formspring, and YouTube. Thats right children, my twitter, formspring, and DailyBooth accounts are all 'JonsMind'. Exciting shit isn't it! Also I do like to show my face, so to see me in action do subscribe to 'Kcb Films' on a YouTube near you. Now that we have that out of the way, I'll go on to boring you and telling you my interests in life. Fuck! Who want's to hear that shit?.. You're right, I don't even want to hear that. So I will just leave things a mystery for now... Plus I will have some information about me in 'about me'.. Oh, what do you know! They have one of those. I hope you all do get to know me more along the way, and hope you'll enjoy!
