World Cup Fever

It's almost over! Finally, in about 14 days' time I'll be free from being bombarded with football mania ... Ok, I've got a bit interested in this peculiar game involving a number of grown men pursuing a leather ball and all the fervor associated with the sport.

I admit that i have never been really a sport person or had much interest in football or soccer [if you are American]. And that is not because i had a mobility impairment as someone once suggested but i don't find sports that exciting - although lately i have been making predictions on recently played games with getting 3 out of 3 right but i don't dare say if My guessing luck will continue.

So it is unusual for me to ask for the score and engage in a conversation where football is the main topic. Strange how you sometimes discover a new facet to your personality. Still, i am sure that this 'fever' will die out as soon as it came!!!

An Apple a day ...

Well not quite ... As I slowly recover from a period of poor health which left me unable to do much writing, let alone blogging, I return gradually to reality Mot that vlogging represents any such leap vut this means that I am ready to look forward!

While a dental issue has been at the root of my recent health crisis, the apple in the subject line isn't related Indeed, it refers to my new gadget: an Apple iPhone 3GS... No not the latest version... But I have been blown away by all its features. Those who own one probably know what I'm talking about.

Besides this isn't a tech blog. What impressed me most, however is the fact I could access it out of the box as it comes with a screen reader as part of the package! Coupled by its gestures, I found the experience fun - although I should be using it more for studying.

I'm in for work tomorrow, so I'll wrap it up here. And I really can't afford an apple a day ... At least not this kind of apple!

Hope to be posting more on the iPhone 3GS experience in my ZoneCast. When I have the time, that is ...
