Well, as predicted, Apple dropped their new iPhone yesterday, and set the world to drool.  Even cooler – make that way cooler – than anticipated, it also answers a nagging question I’ve had for a while, namely why they never went fullscreen with their video iPods.  At any rate, it’s definitely the coolest device out there, making my Blackberry look rather 2006…

Back here on earth, we’re ankle-deep in API documentation, both our own and those of a number of service providers whose systems we are hoping to bring into our network.  Those of you who can read between the lines might have sensed a growing frustration with a number of third-party service providers who were over-promising and under-delivering, and we’ve decided to take matters into our own hands and deal directly with certain service providers, rather than having to rely on cumbersome 3PL solutions.  It’s a bit of a major IT restructuring, and could take a while, but it will be worth it in the long run, making our systems faster, more transparent, and less reliant on other companies’ technology.

The new year brings new business cards, designed by friend and genius Avery Kalemba of Quadrant Productions.  We’re moving up in the world, with heavy card stock and high-quality, saturated colours.  It’s small things like this that make entrepreneurship so much fun…
