Thats right...I got a new Camera Phone.
Its got a fantastic media Player and full keyboard and stuff!
I like it!




My Olympus DSLR takes wonderful photos but it doesn't shoot video,
so I never played around like this before.

And this new cameraphone has a cool little video light and a bunch of controls.

Not a great camera I admit...but so what, its all about fun right?!
So, please don't compare it to your wonderful iPhone or uPhone or ETphonehome...
for nothing else but kicks, I thought I would have some fun.

Yes, I figured it would help me post some modeling stuff.

but first...how about a trip round the Kool Wheelz Custom Car Show.
Its being held down the street at the FLYING-UHU Coliseum.
No charge to get in...just a secret password.

LG makes really good stuff. My wife accidentally washed and dried my LG phone, the phone company wanted $299 to replace it. I took it apart, dried it out, and it works as if nothing happened. I purchased an LG Go phone to replace it for $100 dollars. It had better video and camera capabilities than the original. I like your Kool Wheel video, very Kool!!

Well, my LG is two months old and the screen is done.

haha about two weeks ago the screen stopped working.
just went blank.
Phone was still on, but no screen...so no control .

Took it back in to the store to get a replacement.
(Only two months old!)
Chatted with a Storeclerk...

"Sorry, we don't sell that phone anymore"
-okay, give me a different phone?
"Sorry...but we can only send yours out for repair"
-but its only two months old?
"yes, but its warranteed for a year!"
-I just agreed to a three year contract and you want to take away the free incentive?
"yes sir"

-well that is BS and I don't like it! what do I do in the meantime?...with no phone?
"we can provide you with a loaner...do you have a Credit card?"
-wha?! I have to pay for a loaner?!!
"well if you still have your old phone, we could switch the service back over to it"
-so, I agreed to a three year contract, just to get a new phone, and now you can put me back on my old phone
...but still charge me with the new contract? isn't that nice.


"sir, would you like me to reactivate your old phone? there will be a $35 charge, but I could just put it on your next bill so you don't have to pay for it now"
-you have got to be kidding me
"and I can send out your new phone for repair whenever you are ready..."
-how long will it take for the repair?
"I can't answer that...could be months" (didn't actually say that, but it felt that way)

"and the shipping charges to send it out for repair, I could also put onto your Bill so you don't have to pay it now"

....it was shortly after that I was arrested for beating the Salesclerk to death with my new LG phone.



Photo taken with my new LG Touch Screen Phone!



.....
follow-up...took the phone back home, beat it against the computer desk a few times and the screen came back on.
Now I just hit it whenever the screen goes out...usually works...I'm sure it won't last forever...but in the meantime, I can still say "Look at my new LG phone!"

Dave, Sounds like you got a loose connection somewhere. If you dare, you could crack the cover on that puppy and do some push/pull/tugging till you find a wire or a spot on the circuit board that makes the screen come on/go blank.

okay...so my LG phone finally gave up completely...
or at least the Touch screen did.

And my Phone company refuses to give me another phone.
(22 year customer and they don't give a crap!)

Unfortunately I still have 2.5 years on my contract (lol)
so I am stuck with them for now.

Phone has been sent out for repair...hopefully it will work again.
..............................................

In the meantime, I have gone back to my wonderful (old) Kodak Z740 SLR style Digital camera that also shoots low quality video.
(My Olympus DSLR doesn't shoot video...too bad)

With a Tripod and Windows Movie Maker...

I present the newest additon to the AirDave's Card creations YouTube channel!
A quick build of the SPV Koolwheelz model!

I have a spare phone I purchased from Walmart. Depending on the style SIM card, you can usually just buy a really nice $60 or REALLY NICE $100 dollar phone, take out the SIMS card that came with it, and just POP yours in. AR&T uses the "Go-Phone". It's not too hard to match them up. That's what I bought when my $489 dollart LG was put through the washer and dryer, ironically, that phone still works but I like the cheapo Walmart one better. It has a higher Megapixel Camera too.

I just got this JVC Picsio HD Camera that shoots 1080P/720P in Stereo, and shoots a 5 megapixel picture and is rated safe to be submerged underwater up to 10 feet by the manufacturer!. It was $79.95 at Tigrdirect.com

For some reason, the only JVC Picsio available in Canada (at Tigerdirect) is the Waterproof model...and it is $239

I would love one of those $79 models...but I guess its only for US customers.
