A Look at Cell Phone Commercials

May 22nd, 2007

Yet another commercial that pissed me off, or should I say commercials. This time these commercials involve cell phones.

First of all the Dropped Call commercials of Cingular, now these commercials somewhat claim that a dropped call for other networks cause people to believe a conversation is going on even after a call is dropped. I know that all my Verizon phones
make a very large and annoying beep when a call is dropped.

Next it’s a concept that many mobile company have been using, These commercials claim that a small amount of minutes make people have phone calls less than like 5 seconds, or something like that. They make these commercials despite the fact that most phone companies round up minutes, so in most cases a 5 second call would still equal 1 minute.

Back to another commercial by Cingular. This commercial claims that their Go Phone will change the conversation about phones, this concept doesn’t really work thou, if you turned the conversation back to what supposibly should have happened, the events would work properly with the dialog. Now I’m not going to go into to many details, so to put it simply she, wouldn’t have gotten the phone in the first place, so she wouldn’t have gotten to complain.

    The commercial said:

      “Now your getting this new phone.”
      “It’s so small,”
      “I really like it!”

    When negative the conversation would sound like this:
      “Now your [not] getting this [old or new] phone.”
      “it’s so [big],”
      “I really [Hate] it”

Why would she talk about how the phone’s small after her mother said she’s not giving her a phone?

These are the things that keep me up at night. Now there’s a lot more cell phone commercials like these that I really hate that I could show you, but to save you all the time I’ll stop myself there. Just to close this post, I would like to say that commercials like these don’t make enough sense. I would never buy any of these phones because of what these commercials say(I still might buy them, just not because of the commercial), because they are too out of touch with what cell phone users want(Cingular’s dropped calls commercial), they are simply lies(T-mobiles auction like conversations commercial), or they flat-out don’t make sense(Cingular’s conversation changing Go Phone commercial).

Honda Pilot Troll Commercial Pisses Me Off Every Time I see It

May 19th, 2007

This commercial pisses me of at so many levels. First of all the people responded to only two questions, of the supposed three that they had to answer, and the second question was answered with a “maybe”. The woman said hit the gas, that’s three before the last question was answered. WTF? Grrrrrr!!!!!

Taking a Brake

May 10th, 2007

I have been off and will continue to be off my blog for a week or so. I have finals, Prom, and graduation to worry about. If anything really interesting comes up I might come back on to post, but for now all I had really planned was the usual rants.

Pokémon Diamond and Perl(Part 1 of 3)

April 26th, 2007

I haven’t posted much recently because I’ve been busy carving, finishing school, and playing my new DS game. I’ve owned the Pokémon Game Boy games Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Pinball, and Trading Card Game. I never really bought all that many games for the GBA, so I never played any of the GBA installations to the Pokémon series.

Pokémon Diamond and Perl came out four days ago. I have been waiting for this to come out for quiet some time now. I finally bought Pokémon Diamond two days ago from a Gamestop. I absolutely love it, I’ve played Wi-Fi and I love the voice chat. I love the new features and the kick ass soundtrack, I will post some more when I have some more time and impressions. But for now if you want to play against me in a Wi-Fi match, Go to Insaneent.net and post your friend code on the Pokémon thread.

Damn Stickers

April 17th, 2007


(from left to right: A sonic 2 damaged due to Stickies, 2 NES games somewhat damaged by Stickers, 3 GameCube game cases damaged by stickers, An unnecessary sticker on a Hitman 2 case)

These damn stickers that game stores keep putting on there used games are really making me mad Pissing me off . Starting with modern games, game stores like EBgames and Game Stop, tend to make it hard to take their products stickers hard to take off, I don’t know why that’s just what they do. But when game stores put stickers on the cover of classing NES, SNES, N64, and Sega Genesis’s, thats a slap in the face to those who think that these classic games deserve some respect for there presents in the establishment of the gaming industry.

I had bought a Hitman 2: Silent Assassin game for my GameCube, on the front there was a sticker of the ESRB rating for M for Mature, Even know M for mature was clearly labeled on the same side of the box, this sticker serves no purpose, there was no reason for this sticker to be on the box, So why is it on there? Why would they waist money for stickers that are not needed?

(from left to right: 16 movie cases bought from Blockbuster with Stickers, Sticker on the paper itself rather than the plastic, 5 failed attempts to remove the sticker from the DVD Cases, 2 stickers on cardboard movie case)

And Blockbuster seems to know that stickers on there dvd’s piss people off, because rather than them simply putting the stickers on the plastic cases so they’re easy to come off, they choose to put the stickers directly on the paper cover clip, to make sure if you try to peal them off you tare of some of the movie description with it. Also If blockbuster puts there stickers on the special Warner Brothers DVD cases, they are nearly imposable to get off, but that’s partially not their fault, but the fault of warner bros. for trying to brake down the standers of the DVD casing industry.

Virginia Tech Shooting

April 16th, 2007

My heart goes out to the victims and the families of the victims of the Shooting at Virginia Tech High school. I heard about this driving home from school on news radio, I hope everyone can take some time out of their day, today or tomorrow, to pray for them and to pray that an event like this doesn’t happen again.

F**k Neversoft and Activision

April 15th, 2007


All right, I have every Tony Hawk Game made cross-console, Except for the current generation’s release. I bought Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4, Tony Hawk Underground, Tony Hawk Underground, Tony Hawk Underground 2, and Tony Hawk American Wasteland all at the “brand new” Game Cube price of $50. I also bought Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1,2 and 3. used.

Less then a year ago, it “killed me” to hear that they were not going to make the Project 8 for the Wii. Instead they chose the kiddy, Non-free roaming, SSX Tricky Style, slap in the face, Tony Hawk Downhill Jam and even now they are making that Downhill jam the for the PS2. Downhill jam was still published by Activision but instead of Neversoft the game was developed by Toys For Bob. So basically Neversoft forgot about Nintendo. It wasn’t about graphics because the game was made for all other systems: PlayStation 3, Playstation 2, PSP, Xbox 360, Xbox. It not about controllers because of the classic controller, or even if they thought not enough people had the classic controller, there is style the Game Cube controllers. So WTF Neversoft? WTF happened?

If your looking for a game that will fill the free roaming void that THDJ, Dave mirra is the closest thing you’ll get soon. Carve Entertainment plans to publish a ported version of The PSP game Dave Mirra BMX Challenge some time around June this year for the Wii. Although the the Mirra Francaise is coming to the Wii, I have yet to see any Information for a Skating game for the Wii.

Ciara Talks About Her Gender Switch in Her songs?

April 15th, 2007

“Would the rules change up?…
Or would they still apply?…
If I played you like a toy?.
Sometimes I wish I could act like a boy.” ~
Ciara-Like a boy

The subject of this song brings many questions. Why would she right a song about changing the role of her gender if she just had a possible carrier killing “rumor” about her being born with a Penis male-reproductive organ?

Belief in Friday the 13th as Evil is a Sin

April 14th, 2007

Yesterday was Friday the 13th. Now I’m going to say a simple statement and I’m not going to talk about the past, and what is the cause for Friday the 13th being viewed as bad luck. Belief in Friday the 13 as a day of bad luck and evil day is a sin.

6I am the LORD your G*d, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery;7you shall have no other gods before me.8You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.9You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I the Lord your G*d am a jealous G*d, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and fourth generation of those who reject me, 10but showing steadfast love to the thousandth generation of those who love me and keep my commandments. ~ Deuteronomy 5:6-21

I’ve said this time and time again, belief any any superstition or idol, is a sin in the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic faith. Belief that any superstition beyond the grasp of G*d is a sin. And that’s all there is to it, end of story.
