"I'm hot" Def: Get up and turn a fan on.
"I'm hungry" Def: Go cook me dinner.
"How was your day?" Def: I need to complain about work for 45 minutes and this is my lead in.
"I think I'm getting bored at work" Def: Make more money so I don't have to work anymore.
Anyway, I knew she needed/wanted a new phone and me being the phone snob I am had not even looked into purchasing anything until someone release a high end Android device, running stock 2.2, with a hard keyboard. I followed the news about the G2 for months before it was announced and knew it would be perfect for her, so I pre-ordered one, but not before doing a little research... not on the phone, but on my wife.
I knew I would most likely be called upon to justify why she needed the new phone DESPITE knowing that she knew, that I knew, that she wanted me to know, that she knew that I knew she needed it.
Well, it looked like it was time for math. To begin I started tracking the number of complaints she made about her current phone (rooted MT3G running CM6). I had Post-its everywhere. I also collected data on my phone, laptop, notepads, and then pumped it all into Google Docs. I tracked a months worth of data in all, and the results were shocking. As I had feared, the number of phone related complaints was growing with the progression of time. I needed to act fast, but how fast exactly? How much time did I have?!?!
I needed to get all Good Will Hunting on this data and see what I was up against. I turned to my trusty white board, let my eyes roll back in my head, and then the magic happened.
