Palm Pre vs. iPhone

Friday, June 5th, 2009

I just heard about Palm Pre this afternoon on my way home through NPR. It loks like finally we got a competitor for IPhones. Palm is a great company who invented Palm Pocket PC or Parl Pilot.

I hope to buy an iPhone before but the subscription is a little bit expensice. Palm Pre is to be 30 dollars less than iPhone’s AT&T service through Sprint.

HOA site posts

Friday, December 12th, 2008

Today I posted my first post at our HOA site:

Web site enhancements: Need your input

The next board meeting will be held on December 18. One of the agenda items is to discuss ways to enhance our web site. Your inputs are much appreciated. Here is the wish list for our web site I can think of:

  • Resident surveys/polls
  • “Contact Us” fill-in forms which will direct to Property Manager’s email automatically.
  • Resident self-posted classified ads/activities (do we need something like a forum)
  • Coventry photo gallery hosting all activity pics, preferably residents can self-post.
  • Each registered user has his/her own personalized profile/info so residents can know each other better.
  • Ability to post ads within certain periods, and can rotate the ad placements on the site.

You may provide your input by December 17.

I also added a Wordpress page titled “Coventrians Recommended”. Some user commented in my first post that fieldstone has a good web site.

I also posted “any ham radio operators?” and one replied that he is one of them in the community! Internet is really cool stuff, isn’t it?
