My experience of gas prices over the last few weeks:
- - 4 weeks ago, gas was at 1.88/gallon
- - 3 weeks ago, gas hit 1.97/gallon
- - 2 weeks ago, gas jumped over 2.20/gallon
- - 1 week ago, 2.39/gallon
- - Today, 2.59/gallon
What happens is that the gas price jumps up $0.20 for a few days then drops $0.12 or so. A few days later, gas jumps again $0.20 but then comes down $0.10-$0.15 cents. Over time, this results in gas prices being higher with no real reason outside of …. I guess demand increases during the summer months. But production of gas is controlled by those who define the supply. They generate the need of demand by stimulating stories of demand increasing.
And let’s not get started on “oil swaps”…
- Search functionality is really working out well. I have been searching through on how to find all files in a directory. In an effort to figure out some complex searches, I found this article on the Advanced Query Syntax (AQS) from Microsoft: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa965711.aspx

- Application to application movement and switching is more swift and fluid
- The on-screen keyboard is very handy. Unfortunately, I can only use it with some degree of accuracy in landscape orientation. Portrait just doesn't work for my thick digits.
- The system buttons have a better look... more polished. This includes the notification icons, etc.
- Flip orientation... this is what I was waiting for and a big winner in my book. The application changing orientation based on what I am doing with the phone. Yes... thank you!
- Battery life - in 1.0 and 1.1, this SUCKED! Anyone with a G1 knows what I am talking about.
- Lack of default T-Mobile applications - will there be any issues with some default TMO applications not present?

This may be a new reason to call in ill... "Yeah, boss. Sorry about this but the smell from my co-workers lunch is, well, just too much."
Perhaps this is a call for Paul Blart...

Keep in mind, I use the OneNote screen-clip function a TON. But the basic ability to launch this quick little tool and save JPEGs - natively, quickly, built-in - is fantastical!
Onward and upward... Day 5...
Interesting little tidbit with Gmail and IE8. If I change the theme (from anything to anything), then the Inbox works just fine. Otherwise, my stuff's broke and I default back over to FF. Here are some screen shots of my ordeal.
Just straight up annoying... and non-functioning. Here is a snip of the bottom Inbox section:
After I change the theme (from Settings-> Themes) from the Gmail UI:
But this ONLY works during my session. Once I restart IE8, my issue returns:
It doesn't matter which theme I use and only happens in IE8. Also, this only appears to happen in the IE8 on Windows 7 as my XP IE8 installation is not behaving in this manner. A big difference in the two OSes is W7 is x86_64 and WinXP is x86.
I am not sure that blame belongs with Windows 7, yet. It could certainly be contained within:
- how Gmail is presenting information to the IE8 code base on Windows 7 x86_64
- IE8's rendering in the x86_64 build
- an RC issue within Windows 7 that doesn't handle certain AJAX/Web 2.0/new fangled widget
I haven't gone through to turn on/off new features and functionality within Gmail - I like to turn on the toys. But that seems hardly the solution - turn off the new features and enhancements that make the software more useful (IMO) so that the solution actually works as intended... since this behavior is limited to IE8 on W7 and no other browser - I also confirmed Google Chrome is happy - I am not going to go through the trouble of attempting to determine root cause. I simply don't care if this site doesn't work in IE8 on x86_64 W7. <<>>
Heck, I use FF w/ IE Tab more than anything else anyway...
Looking forward to Day 6...

The issue is Gmail. The drop down menus are rendered in the wrong spots and my email is not updating in IE 8. I have downloaded Chrome and Firefox to see if the issue persists. Also, dslreports.com speed tests show my upload speed @ an amazing, blazing 43Mbps.
I don't think this is possible from a (my) consumer cable line.. but you never know. Maybe Comcast is being more giving these days.
More tests to follow.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters on Friday that Obama will focus on legislation and urge lawmakers to "get something done on an issue of tremendous importance to middle class families.
"For many people credit cards provide an opportunity to finance purchases," Gibbs said. "But we think there's a more equitable way to do that and I think that those reforms are on their way through Congress."
The "equitable way" is to SAVE FOR YOUR PURCHASES! Don't ring up debt you CAN'T pay for and then use money that's borrowed.
Ok - the pinned application section in the task bar... is... freakin'... cool!
Not only is it at the window level, but for Internet Explorer, the tabs are displayed individually.
And one thing that my boy Donn brought up starting back in Vista was the "Start and Type" search functionality. I use Launchy in my XP machines for the same features/functions. In Windows 7, the search results are expanded. The term "virtual" gives me options from Internet Explorer, the Virtualbox application, and the Virtual machines within Windows 7 - such as the "free" Windows XP machine.
The extra wallpapers are really nice.
It's about time more (free) themes are readily available for Windows 7 directly from MS.
I'll keep trying... but I will keep seeking the fault. It ain't wrong.

Thus far, I am really enjoying the task bar pinned applications.
Tomorrow, I am going to get the Live adapter setup to share my media - specifically my music.
A daily touchpoint may be in order...
I bring this up as the opportunity to "test drive" Mac OS X for a specific period of time AND have the full functionality of that operating system during the specified time period would allow those, like myself, the chance to go further than the local Mac store for interacting with the OS.
Basically, hook me with the freebie... otherwise, will I ever REALLY know what I am missing but not having Mac OS X?

B) Is free
There are plenty more... and some will follow.
