Is Your new Apple iPhone 4 Making You Fat?
It's how you hold your iPhone 4 during "FaceTime" that makes you look Good...err ... fat! If you would like to have a FaceTime conversation on your new iPhone 4, then Call me! Curt @ (704) 962-5770 Let's chat.
Ok, I could stand to loose a few pounds. But Steve Jobs, you did it again! You made another great phone. But with the antenna reception issues and the answer being "You're holding it wrong!" There is another issue. Holding your iPhone 4 while on "FaceTime" application can make you fat!
While using the "FaceTime" app for the second time my friend Craig , who I've known for many years, said "Wow! Did you gain weight?" I was like "Well maybe a little" but I am 6ft & 220lbs. As I looked at him He looked great and my little picture looked terrible.
That's when I realized that I was holding the iPhone well under my chin and looking down at it. Naturally having a turtle neck my self it made me look like "Jabba the Hutt". So I lifted the phone up and looked directly into it and ... much better. Holding it above my face and looking up at arms length made me look even better (a trick used by people to make them look thin while taking their own profile shot).
As you can see by my Illustration the Camera on the iPhone 4 has a different field of view and will distort your face. In my case making me look like Jabba.
So thank you Craig for alerting me to that (can't wait to call you fat), and I'll hold my iPhone higher from now on. If you would like to have a FaceTime conversation on your new iPhone 4, then Call me! Curt @ (704) 962-5770 I'll be happy to chat. Just make sure that you are on a WiFi connection, or it won't work.
AT&T has a 3G network, though fast, not fast enough. Sprint has a 4G network and similar applications on the Android HTC do work on 4G. The 4G wireless network is almost comparable to DSL & Cable (depending on many factors). At&t are you Listening?
Another trick to make your double chin go away in photos is to press your tongue against the roof of your mouth. Check it out in the mirror it really works.
I mentioned a few weeks back about how everyone is afraid to show their face on chat. But maybe the new iPhone will break that trend. I personally use Ichat all the time and Skype, because there is so much more to be gained from a conversation when you can see the other person. With Apples ichat on your computer you can share screens too! That makes collaboration so much easier.
I've been able to save so much wasted time by working remotely, no meetings, no inturptions (ok the Cat tries to get into my office, will even undo the door knob, so I had to put a dead bolt on it- seriously). But it just gets your point across so much better.
And the Best thing you can do dor your social media is get a good profile shot. The old rules still apply. If you look attractive, you will get more attention. But that's a whole other article.
