iPhone 4S battery usage report (so far)

In the photo you can see how
I am dealing thus far. Today was the first full day of mobile blogging with the new phone and a few friends have tweeted to ask me how it is going.

I took 112 photos so far today, 21 of which were emailed to Flickr/my blog. This was between maybe 10:30 am and 2:30 pm. Then I noticed two things: I was hungry and the iPhone battery only had 30% left. I stopped to eat and plugged the Energi To Go thing in. It’s the $20 model. It gave me another 30% to continue. I left DAK just before the parade to come to EPCOT. The phone was around 58%. I plugged both the phone and the Energi thing into the car charger. In time it took to drive to EPCOT and type this, I got back to 93%. I don’t know how the little Energi brick is doing because the indicator is either red or green and right now it is still red. Maybe I need the $59 Energi model. But overall I am ok with today’s performance.

If you take a lot of pics with your iPhone or use a lot of apps, and you do not drive around WDW then you will need a big Energi brick or other extra power source.

03/13/2010 – This is a test of PixelPipe to the blog.

Oh it did let me insert an image but it inserted the image BEFORE the audio, which actually came first. OK, let’s see what happens…

This is a moose I met in the Canadian pavilion at EPCOT. Love me some Canadia! 😉

New Disney friend hangin’ out with me here at home

New Disney friend hangin’ out with me here at home, originally uploaded by Tink*~*~*.

The other day while roaming Downtown Disney, I stopped in at the "Everything under $10" store and picked up a new little friend to keep me company while I’m at my desk.

Figment is about 3" tall and made of plush. Oh, and he’s got magical hands and feet! This "magic" (aka magnetism) enables him to "hang out" with me by clinging to my wire basket tower.

He’s just all kinds of cute, isn’t he? :o)

Fergie is crooning and rappin’ about someone who is "delicious". There’s a cooling breeze making the palms sing. AND, I’ve got root beer float from The Fountain. Does it get any better than this?

Glorious morning, Walt Disney World Dolphin

ORIG. TRIED 830 AM 🙂 I’m awake and enjoying coffee on my little balcony. They have Starbucks African Kit-something in-room (too lazy to go inside and look).

The plan for today – well, I need to find my brother, because I have his t-shirt. It’s got the sea gulls from Finding Nemo on it, saying "Mine Mine Mine Mine….". And I think Deb should arrive around noon-ish, so we’ll want to get her all checked in and all. After that – who knows? I do want to check out the Festival Center, which should be open today.

But for now, I’m just going to finish my coffee while enjoying the sights and sounds of the resort waking up. I can watch the boats come and go for a while I daydream about nothing in particular. Life is good 🙂

Attention Email Subscribers [My Mobile Adventures *~*~*]

Hello, email subscribers 🙂 It looks like I’m sending more mobile posts each day than Feedburner is forwarding to you. Must be a limit of posts per email. To fill in the blanks, click on the link to the blog that’s provided in your daily email. Sorry ’bout that, but whaddaya want for free? 😉 LOL. I’m going to send this same message tonight, in case this turns out to be one of the messages that Feedburner ditches. Ciao for now!

Shout out to mah peeps at the Walt Disney Boards

🙂 Just wanted to give a special shout out to Arny and all my friends at the Walt Disney Boards. I like knowing that you guys are following along during the day, and that there will be some comments waiting for me on the forum when I get back from long, hard days trekking around the parks (oh poor me, trekking around the parks, LOL!). Just wanted you all to know that you are appreciated! 🙂

In other news – yes, I bailed on EPCOT and the rain early. I came back to the Dolphin and had a burger at The Fountain, and then I picked up some packages at the hotel’s gift shop, Daisy’s Garden (my spoils from having stimulated the economy). Now I’m just cruising the web for a bit before turning in. Touring in extreme heat just kicks my butt!

I hang out at

The WDB!

I’ve reached Italy. Battery looking weak… Still raining lightly, and it is SIGNIFICANTLY cooler now, with a lusty wind that wafts the delicious aromas of the Italian perfumes shop all the way into America. I could do some serious damage in that shop… *le sigh*

At long last, Grand Marnier orange slushie!

It has started to thunder and rain lightly. I barely escaped the slushie line to the safety of the back entrance to Les Chefs de France before it started coming down. Mo’ Rockin’ is playing on full frenzied force. I’m in EPCOT, I haz tunes, I haz slushie – life is good!

Don’t know if u can see it in this pic, but there is definitely smoke in the air. Saw it while in bus from DAK to EPCOT (see Twitter or TwitPic for photo). Smelled it the minute I got off the bus at EPCOT. If anyone finds out what it is, please tweet @BellTinkR !

On my way back to Magic Kingdom for dinner with da fam… Feeling somewhat wiped out from the heat (and maybe that mango margarita has something to do with it, too)

It’s clear to me that Disney has been cutting corners on the Flower and Garden Festival for several years. Among this year’s disappointments -the garden sculpture section is bare, the rainforest section of Mexico is not dripping with orchids, and now you can see that the festival center is only open on the weekends. I guess Deb and I will come back on Friday or Saturday. I hope there aren’t any more disappointments…

Off to EPCOT

I came to the Magic Kingdom This morning to take pics of my niece in her Cinderella costume, which her exceedingly cool aunt bought for her. Now I am off to EPCOT to take my time thru Flower and Garden Festival and do stuff you can’t do with a four year old in tow. Will reconnect with da fam for dinner.

Late start today . Boy, did it feel good to sleep in! – especially with the "Heavenly Bed" here at the Dolphin. Heading to the Magic Kingdom for a bit, to see a certain small princess go to lunch at the castle in the Cinderella costume her auntie (moi) gave to her for just this occasion. On the bus now, strap-hanging like days of yore on the subway. See ya real soon!

Waiting on the Friendship boat to Epcot

Since Ed complained, I’m sending this to Twitpic too, so it will hit Twitter faster. Anything to shut up oops I mean spread happiness to a friend. The family is spending the day at Epcot today, so that’s where I’m headed.
