Wasting Money

Here I am earlier last week, bored to death (what other reason would one sit and take random photos of stupid shit) and pondering on whether I should get an XBox 360 or a new cell phone!

At the moment, the camera on my phone only takes 1.3 megapixel pictures. The newer one, the Samsung SCHA970, captures pictures at 2.0 megapixels! My current phone can only take 15 seconds of video in any given clip… the Samsung, about 30 minutes!


The major drawback is the price… it’s like $500!!! I’m not sure if I really want to spend $500 on a freaking phone! I’m thinking now that I’d rather just spend that money on an Xbox 360 next month! It’ll be a great add-on toy for the new TV!

Are you nuts?!! You're going to play video games on a plasma?

I'd recommend you wait about the phone and go for the X-Box instead. At the rate things are going right now, it seems we'll have a 5 Megapixel camera phones everywhere by the end of next year, if not earlier. ;)

Ron - I've been researching it quite a bit actually... though plasmas run a much higher risk of screen burn in than lcds, most of the newer ones (mine would fall in this category) are now very resistant to screen burn ins. So, I'm not as worried anymore. And hell, if it gets fucked up, I'll just switch it out! :-P

Elemmaciltur - That's pretty much the conclusion I came to. New phones are constantly hitting the market each month... so I'm sure if I wait til sometime next year, there will probably be something much better... that, and I'm so excited to see how the XBox360 looks, as it's supposed to give a high-definition picture!!!

XBox - when in doubt B Box should always win

I completely agree... though, I may end up waiting til early next year to see what the PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Revolution have to offer.

Get the X Box. There are SO many new phones coming out that are way better (www.nokiausa.com/8801 or www.nokiausa.com/9300) I wish I could use European phones b/c they're way better than ghetto US ones :(

Frank said...

Yeah, I'm gonna wait on the phone. Those are some nice Nokia phones!

It amazes me how many features are constantly added to cell phones... hell, last year I got rid of my Pocket PC because the phone could do everything it could and even more! LOL!
