Attended the Minneapolis Sprint 4G Launch Yesterday

I ended up attending the Sprint 4G launch for Minneapolis on Wednesday.  It was very interesting to participate in a big presentation.  We had noticed Sprint testing 4G a few months ago and noticed when it became live in Minneapolis.

It was nice to get a chance to play around with the equipment although I think that Sprint did a poor job explaining why WiMax was going to succeed over LTE.  In fact Sprint was trying to communicate that 4G on other carriers was still a pipe dream or at least a first generation product for all other companies.

I was able to see my first Samsung Tablet which looked beautiful and I got a little excited seeing a new Medical Tele-presence device that might fit nicely at our hospital instead of sending nurses or providers out to people's houses.  Quick link for those interested: AmericanTeleCare

Saved Me From

This article saved me from -- I have been trying for a couple of months to move my blog from to Under, that would have cost me $12 a year but under Blogger, it is free. (I already had the domain registered)

I put up with Wordpress for a long time and to be fair, they were quite nice to me. My biggest hurdle since joining with them from the begining was not being able to add Google AdSense to my blog but since I was never writing this for the money :) I just ignored the minor irritation. Later, when micro-blogging became popular, I wanted a way to use my domain name to keep my posts under my own control.

Anyways, I am very happy to try this new platform -- for me.
