I was at Target today searching for an elusive pair of size 10 peep-toe canvas flats that went on sale for $6. I'm frugal (not cheap). As I'm digging through the aisle of shoes, I hear the sky open up, and thousands of gallons of water beat on the roof of the store.
Oh, happy day. It's raining like no tomorrow.
I keep looking for the little shoes as the rain comes down. Eventually I give up on my little mission and sit down at the in-store Starbucks and fire up my iPhone to kill some time. I can't drive in that weather! My tiny Hyundai will float away!Ok, I'll admit it: Like any other college student on the earth, I'm hopelessly addicted to Facebook, the social networking site for (mostly) college students. It's a great way to keep in touch with my friends (two are in Seattle, one is in Canada, another in Spain) and a great way to kill time as you wait for a downpour to stop.
I'm browsing, I'm leaving comments, I'm amusing myself, I'm happy. Suddenly, Safari crashes. I reopen it, try again, and BAM! Crash!! I wasn't even listening to the iPod at the time!
It seems to crash only when one of my lovely friends has about 20 Facebook apps on their page.
Is this only happening to me? I know some of y'all are Facebook-addicted Uni students. Do you find your iPhone to be Facebook un-friendly? Is it Safari being bad or Facebook needs to be nicer to the phone? Perhaps if we raise a big enough fuss, they'll come out with an iPhone version of the site, much like how there's a mobile version. That'd be pretty sweet!
Arn/Editor Note: We've heard that Facebook is actually working on an iPhone optimized version and it may be here as soon as Tuesday.
