Killing time softly

So what you can do in a hospital to kill all the time ?

I have finished 6 books already … I am a slow reader but time runs really slow in hospital.

Other then reading lots of books, luckily I have a 3G / HSDPA smartphone with me.

I promptly set up RSS feeds in my phone to check news around the world with Yahoo, soccer news from Soccernet and camera news from Dpreview.

I also check mails with Gmail mobile, check book reviews with Amazon mobile, and browse gadget news with Engadget mobile version. I even downloaded the Google Map Mobile this morning to check the name of the highway just outside the hospital I’m staying …

Then installed the Opera mobile such that I can manage my blog. And of course, I can make phone calls and send / receive SMS.

With all these, I am constantly in touch with the world and all my friends / colleagues.

Time, after all, is easier to kill than life.
