We had a (brief) reunion earlier this week: Alfons joined us last weekend and left (surprisingly) a day earlier than we all expected: there was a slight misunderstanding in his flight schedule. Luckily, the airport isn’t too far of a drive.

He was kind enough to give away his iPod Touch: it is now the main focus of all my attention, which has left my KDE based-computer in the cold because there’s no real way to access the thing without jail-breaking it. This is my main gripe against the iPod: it’s a locked-up platform. Fair enough: the thing works as it promises and there goes nothing above watching The Matrix for the umpteenth time on a (what is it) 4″ screen. Additionally, there goes nothing above copying photos to the thing and having those in your pocket. Alfons also shared along his iPhone experiences (I didn’t bother asking him for his monthly charges) and I thought one of the best apps for it was the ‘Tim Hortons Finder’. Wait, no make that Shazam (which, I understand isn’t really free either).

Now mind me while I’m going to watch the Lord of the Rings.
