I’ve been having a problem with my ATT iPhone data connection, wherein I keep getting booted off the 3G network, even when I have a decent signal. When this happens, my phone doesn’t display the friendly “3G” in the title bar, but switches to a little evil “E.”
This means my connection is WAY slower, and also that I cannot access data during voice calls, which is essential to my work.
I decided, therefore, to keep track of this annoying problem. By taking pictures of my screen every time it happened, I found that I had to reset my phone 21 times in a four-day period (to get back onto the 3G network). If it weren’t for my contract, I would probably switch to Verizon.
Oh, the drama! With the anticipation going on for the better part of a year, it is no surprise to those of us who’ve been following mobile-phone news, that Instragram has been working on, and has finally released an app for the Android platform.
As it has been highly widely reported, during the first 24 hours, over one million record-breaking Android users downloaded and installed the app.
What I did not forsee, however, was the backlash of disappointed iPhone users who feel they have somehow lost their grip on something exclusive. Sadly, not only are some of these comments elitist and classist, but others border on racism. …
The thing I have appreciated the most about #Instagram from the very start, is how amazingly positive, supportive, and interactive you all are. That’s why this place has become my favorite #socialnetwork. Thank you all for being so awesome. Seriously. And now that you all have helped me to create a large body of creative images, I’m putting together a collection for my first #iPhoneography book. The thing I’d like to ask you for is your help determining which selections will be included, as your likes are a great gage of how successful a particular photo is. So right now I am putting together some galleries of my favorite #iPhone shots for everyone to vote on. Just hit the web button at the top of my #IG feed, and it will take you directly to my #Facebook page at URL: facebook.com/mouselink.biz … Or just type in this address, or search for mouselink.biz in any Facebook app. Thanks for your votes. More news on the book coming soon, including a contest for your chance to included on the back cover. Be well, all. Much love! (Taken with instagram)

A lot of Instagram peeps have come over to listen to my new SoundCloud radio show and podcast, and I want to thank everyone for doing so. Y’all are awesome, and I appreciate you so much!!!
Today I posted a new program, “Cameras are the New Guns,” and this has to do with how photographers, and phoneographers too, are increasingly being treated as if photography is somehow a crime. Very important topic for all of us creatives, so I hope you can listen in and help spread the info.
My new #website is live, and #Instagram figures very prominently in the graphics and content. Unfortunately, I dont find that it runs terribly well on the #iPhone, so maybe plug the url into your computer’s #webbrowser the next time you’re on. Just type in http://mouselink.me and then tell me what you think? (Taken with instagram)
