My experimentation with panoramic photography

DISCLAIMER: I BY NO MEANS PRETEND TO KNOW ANYTHING WHATSOEVER ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. I SIMPLY ENJOY PRETTY PICTURES.

A couple months ago, my Android phone received the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade (ICS 4.0) which ultimately fixed a few quirks and enabled me expanded functionality. Most notably, my camera can now take panoramic photos. There have been a number of occurrences during the past few months where I found my surroundings to be beautiful enough to warrant a panoramic photograph. Embedded below are a few examples.

You can also view these photos in a slightly larger format in my photo gallery.

An actual email I sent to Sprint Telecommunications

Dear Sprint, 

My name is Jesse Zakshesky, and I am the proud owner of the Nexus S 4G Android smartphone, and I pay approximately $70/month on my unlimited data plan, for which you require to even own an Android smartphone. I also live in Madison, Wisconsin, a fairly tech-savvy city with approximately 561,505 people in the metropolitan area. It's the state capital of Wisconsin, and hosts a nationally renowned university.

A lot of people use technology here. How come I have no service in my bedroom?

I'm currently writing this email from my bedroom. If I look to my left, I see a door leading outside to a small area where my grill resides. I have service there.

If I walk to my right and sit down on my chair in my living room, I have service there.

However, right now, I'm looking at my phone and I have a triangle icon at the top panel, which represents the following scenario:

You have lost data connectivity.

This problem has never occurred until about a month ago. If for some reason my bedroom has suddenly become a cave, I would understand. However, upon further analysis, I just see a lot of dirty clothes and drywall, and if I'm not mistaken...a window.

You should probably fix this. If not, I'll strongly consider terminating my contract, and jumping ship to the guy shown below if necessary.

Contracts were meant to be broken.
