N97 Tour: Day(s) 5+6, Big Sur and San Francisco

with 2 comments

Sunday was our drive up to San Francisco and thanks to several recommendations, we decided to take the long route through Big Sur. I think this image explains why.

We captured a lot of other content including a 30 minute video recorded through the windshield as we climbed the winding paths and George was able to capture that same path on Sports Tracker. This post will be updated with the links when we have everything collected and online.

Monday we did the tourist thing and took a boat under the Golden Gate bridge and around Alcatraz, taking plenty of photos, videos, and tracking our route with Sports Tracker.

We challenged ourselves by splitting into two teams prior to the tour and agreed to meet each other in a general location at a certain time. Using a combination of Friend View and Google Latitude, we were able to meet up with each other successfully in a specific location without the need to call one another. Friend View didn’t seem to track us as well as we would have liked and it was slower to load the maps, but Google Latitude performed very well and made our final meetup possible in the end.

Again, pictures speak louder than words for this.

For everything we’ve had to do with photos and video, the N97 is holding up only fairly well. It doesn’t open the camera consistently when the lens cover is slid open and there’s still plenty of lag that has caused me to miss a few notable moments. When it does work though, the pictures it takes are absolutely incredible and being able to upload them on the fly to several different services has been essential on this trip.

To finish up the day, we made reservations at the Waterbar overlooking the Bay Bridge for some upper-class seafood, meeting up with Matt and George’s friends, Tami and Ankita.

San Francisco is absolutely gorgeous and the public transportation system makes getting around a breeze. I may end up moving here instead of Chicago if I can. I am starting to like it that much!

  2. Should be fixed now. Word Mobi doesn’t do well with a poor internet connection and uploading videos. Thanks for the update.
