    Once, when I was profoundly intoxicated, I was talking to my girlfriend on my cell.

    Now this was one of those nights where I'd been out with friends, gotten decently buzzed, and when I was dropped off at home, I wanted to keep my buzz going. I check the liquor cabinet. Bourbon? Out. Gin? Out. Vodka? Out. What I did have, however, was the better part of a bottle of dry vermouth. Oh well, I figure, and down the whole thing. Big mistake.

    So I'm talking to the girlfriend, and I realize that I'm about to boot. Having thought ahead, I grab the huge bowl I've brought to the bed, mumble, "Sorry, baby", hold the phone away from my face, and hurl...in both the throwing up and just plain old throwing sense.

    Because in having thrown up, I managed to slam-dunk my phone right into the prodigiously full bowl of vomit. It was so depressing. I could still see the light from the screen at the bottom of my sick. I reached in, grabbed the phone, howled something like, "SHIT. GOT TO GO!", and turned the phone off immediately. Once it was powered down, I took the faces off, and pulled the battery out.

    It was still working when I switched to a nicer model, a year later.

    The only problem it ever had was that the little rubber nub that told the phone that it was flipped open would occasionally stay stuck down, requiring a few moments of feverish --and I'm sure quite disturbing -- nub-rubbing in order to answer calls.

    So I am not the best at keeping my address books and contact information up to date. Thus it was a chore this morning spending 3 hours moving all the most current info into my gmail contacts. I then cleared out my old address book program on my mac so that when I sync all the happy correct info from gmail would be loaded onto my phone. It should be noted that when installing my iphone last night it asked me first if address book or gmail should be given overwrite priority and I told it gmail. But instead, it wiped my fucking gmail contact list clean. So now I have zero phone numbers, and can't email folks because it deleted all that info too. I don't know my parent's phone numbers, or my grandparent's mailing address. I lost all my job contact info. This blows a giant dong!

    Have you ever been screwed by technology and/or what you thought was your own cleverness? Share those stories with me so that if I can't be happy I can at least console myself with schadenfreude. Also, if you feel like it you can just poop on Apple in general.

    Wait, you GAVE IT OVERWRITE PRIORITY, then deleted data that you thought would be overwritten? Why would you do that extra work?

    You should've dropped a second, larger computer on them. For consistency's sake, if nothing else.

    And now as I add fake test data back into gmail it syncs like it should. So it only cocks up when it is important information. I want to poop in Steve Job's oatmeal.

    A friend of mine got a Blackberry during the week. I found out when she sent me eight blank messages in a row. Just after 7am.

    She wasn't even trying to text me. She was just messing about with the address book. Apparently she did something similar to four other people and is seriously worried about her first bill.

    I want to bitch about having to pay for the same update that iPhone owners got included in their contracts.

    I paid close to $400 for a piece of electronics, damn you stop fleecing me.

    well, you know, they can't charge us ridiculous amounts of money every month, so they have to stick us whenever they can
