When I got home I downloaded two apps for the iPhone:
- Who Wants to be a Millionaire - I played the game three times. On the third time, I won the Million Dollars. There was a cute feature. When you chose your "phone a friend" lifeline (which was eliminated on the TV version) 3 of your contacts from the phone appear.
- Soduku - this is one of Karen's favorites. Now she can use the iPhone instead of pencil and paper.
Speaking of apps, there was and interesting article in todays New York Times Styles section titled "When Phones Are Just Too Smart". It states that people have downloaded many apps for their phones, but regularly use only a few. It is similar to a family's use of cable tv channels. We may have a few hundred at our disposal, but watch only a few.
In the early afternoon we walked over to the local multiplex to see The Book of Eli. The only comment that I will make was that it was a good movie, but Denzel Washington has appeared in much better films.
