Two things arrived today; both of which bring with them mixed feelings.
- My Visa Extra Rewards statement. I have no idea why, but I have a strange and unwavering brand-loyalty when it comes to Visa. Does the piteous accruement of Rewards Points temper my faith in their service? Nay. A few thousand points couldn’t buy me a new microwave, and there’s little chance of me spending up big enough to actually reap any rewards. Could I (and should I) have signed up for a Lite MasterCard — boasting a (much) lower interest rate at the sacrifice of “perks”? Yes, for sure. But for some reason I couldn’t bring myself to go for a MasterCard. Visa has a strange hold over me, and I’m sure it’s voodoo-related.
- Romeo 0.9 was released today, a major major improvement on its predecessor(s), and at last heading towards the kind of functionality I was hoping for back when I first got my phone. It still, quite unfortunately, boasts a truly-hideous metal interface and breaks about every UI guideline there is. But hey, it’s a free program that does great things, who am I to complain? Unfortunately for Arboreal, it hasn’t quite overtaken Clicker in terms of functionality, so there’s really no point to stray from Jonas Salling’s side.
