The Megapixel Myth - You’re getting ripped off.

Yet another good megapixel myth article from This marketing myth is finally being exposed. More pixels != better pixels. The Mars Spirit Rover takes gorgeous photos at 1Mpix, SmugMug has printed 3 million photos with zero returns for low-resolution, and David Pogue at the New York Times conducts his own tests exposing the Megapixel Myth. Megapixels are almost meaningless.

What does your IQ tell you

Here is an interesting chart I found on Someone correlated alot of information (high school dropout, divorce, jail) and compared it with IQ. VERY interesting. I wished they had one showing the average IQ of computer programmers though.

My first week with the LG enV

Last weekend was my birthday so we went to the Verizon store and ordered an LG env. I got it Wednesday and so far I am impressed! The quality of the phone calls is excellent and I like the speakerphone and GPS navigation. I am also very impressed by the quality of the photos from the 2 megapixel camera. The QWERTY keyboard is also a big help (though I don't do that many text messages).

My only complaint so far is the front screen when taking pictures. I wished the screen had the same size ratio of the main inner screen or, failing that, they would have blackbarred the top and bottom of the front screen. As it is they are cutting off part of the picture in the display (so your picture is actually bigger than what you are seeing on the screen. This can cause a good bit of confusion.

Overall it is a great multi-purpose phone.
