A Little Friend Returns

Our daughter’s recovery companion is a little Japanese chick, likely purchased during Comic-Con 2010. She gave it to her best friend years ago; he returned it when she was still in critical condition. Yesterday, our girl left the hospital about 40 minutes shy of 30 days. She has moved on to facility for rehabilitation, which will be the subject of a future post.

For now, the Featured Image is the topic. You can disbelieve me, but this one comes from Nexus One—composed as shot and in no way edited. Vitals are incomplete, but the date is there: July 23, 2010, 1:22 p.m. PDT.

The smartphone was Google’s first of many. My spot-on analyses about what the device would mean for mobiles: “Google Takes Ownership of a New Mobile Category“; “Nexus One Foreshadows Google Mobility That Could Get Ugly for Apple and Microsoft“; “Google’s Superphone is Super Surprising“.

Returning briefly to our daughter, here is her saga to date, presented chronologically: “Our Family Emergency Revealed“; “From Intubation To Extubation“; “Ode to a Good Day“; “I am Strong“; “A Solemn Story; “Our Daughter’s New Smartphone“.
