What a nice afternoon!

It's been raining and thundering since early this morning (around 03:00). I'm so glad since we're getting relief from some of the drought. I even documented some of the early morning lightning on my camera since I love to capture such special events. If anyone has been wondering, I'm doing well, thanks for considering.

I was thinking about buying an Kindle Fire ($199) or an HP Touchpad ($99). I think the HP Touchpad would be a better buy. It's cheaper, is now preloaded with webOS and maybe Android Froyo (under investigation), and has wifi and Bluetooth. It has also has a much larger screen than that of the Kindle Fire.

The only thing I have a problem with is actually getting a HP Touchpad with Android installed. It's been a mystery to Hewlett-Packard as to how Android was installed on so many Touchpads when they didn't even include the Android system on the Touchpad. So an Investigation has been launched within the company to figure out who the rogue programmer is.

But Android and HP Touch pad go together quite well. webOS is shit anyway, why not double the profit by including Android (officially)? Android is much more profitable than webOS. People could access the Android Market, Android has more possibilites. But for some reason HP is all butthurt about the rogue programmer.

If I can't find a HP Touchpad with Android, then it's Kindle Fire for me. And HP should realize they will start losing sales once more people realize this Android controversy. I assume people will boycott the Touchpad for Android. But I suppose at $99 no one really cares. Well that's enough of me bitching. Until next time peeps!

I love lightning storms. You actually managed to catch the lightning on camera? That's very impressive.

I'm sorry,

I should've been more specific. My digital camera has a "movie" mode. So it can record short bits of video.

A good storm sounds

A good storm sounds wonderful right now. It's completely dry here. Fall is my favorite season next to winter, but it's been really hot around here, which is so weird.

Lightning storms are so breath taking.

that seems a little redundant since iPad can do the same things as a Kindle yes?

I like reading a lot outdoors and on public transportation, so the Kindle is a glare-free reading environment, unlike everything else.
