I spent 48 years caring about what people thought of me. I'm not spending the rest of my life caring about that anymore!

In Praise of Technology

I'm typing this post from my iPhone for two reasons. The first to see if I can, the 2nd is because my laptop is way over on the other side of the bed and my watery eyes and runny nose have made my mobility considerably limited. Plus, I'd have to power it up, wait the few minutes to load up everything. Yeah, I'm that pitiful tonight.

I don't know why I've never thought to blog from my phone. I mean I do everything else; Twitter, Facebook, surf the 'net, play games, listen to music. The list expands as I download more and more apps. Last summer I was torn betweenthe iPhone and my Blackberry. I never imagined I'd find a phone to surpass my expectations and pleasures of owning a BB yet here I am, loving all things Apple.

This phone has really changed my life as it pertains to everyday chores and habits. I've long ago stopped buying CDs unless it can't be found on iTunes or downloaded from Amazon.com. A history buff, I've downloaded a daily history app, several games, an interactive app that highlights artifacts found in the Louvre, an app that calculates how many calories I've earned or burned and other things too private to mention. And where most of my music resided on my iPod, it has been relegated to furniture, having been replaced by the iPhone. It used to be I would only listen to the iPod in my room or with headphones. That all changed this Christmas when I bought an iPhone alarm clock radio from Sharper Image. Now I can listen to Slacker while I read or doze to any playlist I desire.

Last week Apple unveiled the iPad and like hundreds of thousands of people around the world, I watched and wondered if I would ever need something like the iPad. Probably not right now. I'll wait for it to be tested and recalled and updated before laying down $500. But I must confess-I'm SO glad I didn't buy the Kindle now.

I love my iTouch. The only reason I don't have an iPhone is because of the exclusive deal with AT&T. My husband is a Mac guy, and he is slowly gaining a convert.
