This time around, though, I was fortunate to have my handy iPhone 3G in my pocket. Obviously, the cell phone part of it was indispensable, making calls here and there but it was also great for taking verbal notes when I was away from paper. The new dictating capabilities in the upgraded operating system helped capture information in voice memos to myself - and did so wonderfully.
Having relatives and friends in the Washington, DC area, I was able to get up-to-the-minute reports on the train collision and keeping track of my rapidly escalating to-do list with Pocket Informant (which I'm using as my calendar and task manager) was a breeze, synching to Google Calendar and Toodledo each time I accessed it.
Long story short: while I haven't been posting on here as frequently as I'd envisioned, I HAVE been able to maintain a modicum of sanity in my life though, all thanks to the iPhone - something I doubt would have been achieved with a Windows SmartPhone unit. Oh, and the KoiPond application was also a calming help although hearing the sounds of rain after the past three weeks is not the option I've chosen to activate.
Has the iPhone helped you putting one foot in front of the other? Tell us your story!
