Cool Super Noob here...

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all. I am about to buy my first multi-featured phone. Possibly an 8800, maybe a pearl. I like the pearl, but I want on-board GPS. Likely through Cingular.

Oh, and yes, I am related to John Clark...

...he's my Brother. [flame suit on!]

This simply smacks of NEPOTISM!

So, welcome BC.

Haha.... you guys are funny.

John said there were nothing but geeks in here... Oh, nope. My bad... he told me .... "They don't let geeks in here..." But I managed to get past Airmarshall Clark anyway.

You can only call Nepotism if I make moderator by my 10th post; which JC told me I couldn't anyway! Maybe I'll make airdeputy though. But I don't fly like JC. No worries though... JC already reprimanded me for not having an avatar Not two minutes after I signed up. Where's the brotherly love?

Speaking of Geeks and Avatars... Since I did not have an avatar, I had to create one. So I used a close-up photo of my LCD monitor that I took a while ago with my DSLR. I used a 50mm lens on a 3x extension ring, tripod-mounted it with the lens just 3 millimeters from the screen and an exposure of 1.6 seconds@f2.8 (with a grey screen color). I then used Photoshop to crop an image to capture just 20 RGB pixels (part of a letter "v") and you can actually see the red, green, and blue sub-pixels in each pixel-unit. If you're really bored or really geeky, you can read up on TFT LCD displays. I'd post a sudo-link but I'm not supposed to post a link until after my 10th post so I don't want to push it with the mods (I've heard about them )

Anyway... I am looking forward to getting a phone that I can actually use for something. I am not much of a talker, but I am "directionally-challenged" so I am looking forward to nav on the phone.

Thanks Guys...
