We have had our i Phones for over two years now, but we are still learning what we can do with them. This weekend we discovered panorama photos using our i Phones.
In fact, this photo from the Chihuly Museum was taken by Tom using his panorama camera feature.
Yes, we were at a Sounders game on Sunday, the season opener.
Taking selfies is not new, but it is hard to get a decent self portrait.
Opening ceremonies featured flags from all of the MLS clubs.
And some interesting tifo in our two supporter sections.
Unfortunately the Sounders lost, but we look forward to lots of better results during this long season.
But back to learning new stuff. I also learned this weekend how to send popsmoney. Jake doesn't use checks anymore, and in transferring some money to him, he said to just "pop" it. Huh?
He sent me the links to the credit union we both use for our banking. I already do lots of online banking, but this is a new-to-me twist. Once you have set up the pops option with your bank, all you need to send someone money is their phone number or email address. You don't even need their bank account number. When the person on the other end receives email notification, they direct the money into their account. Checks are becoming obsolete. News to me.
While I was setting up banking options, I added mobile banking to my phone. Now I can deposit checks by taking a photo of them and sending them to the bank electronically instead of via snail mail. We bank with the teachers credit union and they don't have convenient branches to stop by for banking business.
Also new - our Sounders tickets are now mobile. That is, they are on our phones. Unfortunately, even though I have that all set up on my phone and Tom's, I couldn't get a good enough connection at the gate on Sunday to pull up my ticket for scanning. Fortunately Tom could and after watching the little circle on my phone searching for a few minutes, I just had him get my ticket too, and in we went.
But now I have learned about my "wallet", the place on your phone where you can store all of your passes and tickets for upcoming events, like soccer matches, concerts, or airline flights. From now on I will keep my electronic Sounders ticket in my electronic wallet.
Yes, I know I'm probably way behind a lot of people in using mobile technology, but I'm getting there.
How will we ever manage if we get cyber attacked?
