False’s Four – Things about San Diego

Things I like:

  1. I appear to be only fifteen minutes away from everything in the entire city.
  2. It doesn’t get very cold.
  3. Harbor seals!
  4. the sunsets and sunrises.

Things I don’t like:

  1. It never rains (how am I going to justify sitting all day on the couch with just a cup of tea?)
  2. It doesn’t get very cold.
  3. Suburban and exurban hell.
  4. No decent forms of alternative transportation (cars required.)

Things that would be neat:

  1. If it snowed here just once.
  2. being able to see some of those million dollar home slide off the hills.
  3. I got a job.
  4. Seeing a Chargers game (hahahahhaahahahahah).

Things I don’t want to see:

  1. A Chargers game.
  2. The Stone Brewing Company.
  3. Carl DeMaio become mayor.
  4. What the I-5, I-15, or I-805 look like during rush hours.

False’s 4our – Android Apps I Can’t Live Without

Everyone likes lists! They’re the most popular things on the internet (and the laziest!) I got sick of feeling left out of all this list making so I decided to come up with my own! But, unlike all the other lists out there mine are only going to have only four (4our) items on them! Yup, I am the one, true, special snowflake on the ‘net. My other gimmick is that three of the items on the list will be good and one will be “bad”… You get to decide!

  1. K-9 Mail – The best muli-mail client I’ve found. K-9 l lets me check gmail, hotmail, yahoo, etc. All in a clean interface and easy to use search options!
  2. Instapaper – With Instapaper I can read article wherever and whenever I want to! Just click a bookmarklet in a browser or on my phone and the article gets sent to Instapaper where I can read it at my leisure.
  3. Shortyz – Crossword puzzles from all the best newspapers (even the NYT if you have a subscription) delivered to your phone every day. For those of you who aren’t ready for the full crossword experience Shortyz offers hints for letters, words, and the entire puzzle. I find myself doing crosswords whenever I have even a few spare minutes
  4. Smart Tools – Looks like a good idea but I’ve never managed to actually use it or get it to work. It let’s you use the accelerometer, speakers, light, and camera in your phone to find out things like length, angle, distance, etc.
If you have any recommendations for future 4ours let me know either below in the comments or through email.
