My Facebook profile picture is looking at @SeattleWineGal’s Twitter status update with great interest. I just thought it was too funny not to snap and archive for posterity.

I change my personal Facebook profile picture regularly, but I just might keep this one for a little while longer. That particular face of mine was snapped at a recent Chic Meets Geek event. I was mugging for the camera.

Go figure.

Yes, this was a live screen shot of the Yahoo TV widgets on my Samsung TV that I just blogged about.

After entering my credentials, it took me ten minutes to bang this out on the remote control and virtual keyboard. It would have taken half that time if I hadn’t pressed the wrong key and the stupid widget software was intelligent enough to save a draft.

As far as I’m concerned, the Internet widgets on Samsung TVs are a total #FAIL.

World's Biggest Windows Phone 7 Device

You won’t be able to get ahold of your own Windows Phone 7 device. I, however, am lucky enough to have one I can play with right now. The screen is ginormous… way bigger than that of my iPhone 4. It fits easily into your pocket, too – as long as you have seriously large pockets.

According to those in the know, Windows Phone 7 is going to completely change the game when it comes to productivity on our mobile devices. That’s a pretty high standard to set. I’m definitely looking forward to trying it out for myself later in the year.

FaceTime on an Airplane at 35,000 Feet!

FaceTime

I’m on my way back to Seattle from Spokane. I decided to initiate a FaceTime chat with my brother, using the free in-flight WiFi. It worked like a charm! Of course, I didn’t talk (that would have been a bit rude). I panned the cameras around a bit to show Adam what was going on, though. Too much fun!

After he saw the photo I captured above, Josh Haley decided to play around a little in Photoshop. I have to hand it to him: my brother has never looked so happy!

What types of things do you do when you have free in-flight WiFi? Do you plan to indulge in some FaceTime, or will you buckle down and get some work finished?
