I’m not really a gadget kind of person. I like to keep up on the latest technology (actually, sometimes it’s my job to keep up on the latest technology) but I rarely incorporate it into my daily life. I have a flat screen HDTV, but I only subscribe to basic cable (which is completely idiotic, I know). I have an iPod nano, but it’s two years old and can only play songs. No video. Not that I would use the video capability even if I had it. Like my husband, who has a newer video-capable nano, but leaves it sitting in the drawer untouched for months. I have a digital camera, but it’s nothing fancy. I think it can record video, but I’ve never tried. I don’t own a video camera. And the most sophisticated computer I’ve ever had is my Dell laptop, which work provides for me. Then there’s my phone. My basic, standard LG flip phone. I can call people just fine, but the camera is crappy and texting people is a major pain in my arse. It pales in comparison to my husband’s Blackberry Curve with GPS and e-mail capability. Out of curiousity, I’ve tried using it before and to tell you the truth, it’s a little overwhelming. Which is why I’ve never really minded keeping my money in my pocket instead of spending it on useless toys. So then why in the world did I walk into the mall tonight on a work-related assignment and find myself walking out with an iPhone?
Yep. That’s right. I’ve joined the ranks of the tech savvy. I am now the proud owner of a baby iPhone. I think I’ll name him Earl. Earl the iPhone. Has a nice ring to it, no? Ha! Get it? Ring? iPhone? Hahaha!
I’m sorry. I apologize for my nerd jokes. I blame Earl.
Anyway, I have an iPhone. And it’s pretty fuckin’ cool, if I do say so myself. I spent the last half hour setting up my email and watching YouTube videos in compete and utter amazement. I also tested the camera.
Hubby had these little guys waiting for me when I came home from work last Friday. Now that I have this iPhone, I’ll probably need to pick up a little surprise for him. He’s been a little down all night. I think he’s suffering from iPhone envy.
So tell me, are you a tech geek? Do you have a fancy phone? And if you have an iPhone, tell me why you love it (as if I need any more reasons).
