The commercials annoyed me, it's true. And I admit that at one point I declared that I would never buy another phone unless it was an iPhone. But I began eating those sentiments double-plus quick when I saw it in action. And, it's on Verizon, to whom I am very loyal thanks to their customer service that has bent over backwards for me on several occasions.

So now, I am the proud owner of a Motorola Droid.
More surprisingly, I've gone from being a Mac person to an Android person. Big time.

This weekend, I used the "My Tracks" application (free!) to follow my progress as I snowboarded down my first black diamond trail. I then uploaded the map to Google Maps while on the lifts. Be sure to click on the red way point marker to see my elevation, max speed, and other stats.

Android users can find the app here:

or learn more about it here.

I think I'll start posting more Android-esque items. This phone (and operating system) is pretty darn cool.
