But I still have a VCR and a landline phone, so my perspective isn’t one you’ll hear every day. What I’ve discovered about this ridiculous little contraption:
1. Up until now, I have saved quite a bit of money.
2. Best feature so far: I can make a grocery list, and never, ever leave it at home. Bonus: I can send it to my husband, who can go shopping on his way home.
3. Taking photos, and sharing them, is waaay too easy. I’m in danger of becoming one of those parents who over-shares their children’s cute moments/accomplishments/faces full of pasta sauce on Facebook. Sorry.
5. Texting is cool and all, but fiddling with all those little buttons makes me feel like an old person.
6. I’m really glad for the little spell-check text feature that changes, “mert” to “meet.”
7. On the other hand, it can change the word “friend” to “grieve,” so I still have to proofread.
8. iTunes is better than a mixtape. I’m old enough to remember those. Are you?
9. On that note, iTunes is probably where I’m going to lose my life savings.
11. The best tech support for a smartphone? Tweens. Those
14, 13, 11-year-olds are better than an online tutorial, and handier than an app.
What’s the best thing for you about your phone?
