So, what made me give in? (No, I am not going to blame you Dave – well, not exclusively.) Dave’s comment was just the latest in a long line of remarks that followed a similar vein, “Why don’t you just get a new one?” I take it that people were tired of hearing me complain about what a piece of crap my phone was. (For the record, the piece ‘o crap was a Samsung R225 and the new one is a Motorola V300)
Well, is my life better with my new phone? Not really. It is cool that it takes cheezy little photos and you can email them… but I carry at least one camera with me at all times anyway. Sure, I guess it is cool that I can put the pictures I take as wallpaper on the screen… but, I never needed wallpaper before. Yeah, the full-color games are kinda sweet – but can anyone really play a game with those tiny little buttons anyway?
In the end, no – my life isn’t greatly improved. My lawn still needs mowing. I still need to stop eating chili & cheese on everything. I certainly haven’t stopped needing to work out more. But wait… with those super sweet ringtones… I am bound to get more people to look my way… and isn’t that what life is about? You bloggers understand that one, right?
