For all of those times that I marveled at why you were STILL playing on your iPhone even though much more interesting things were going on…
For all those times I snarkily laughed and rolled my eyes at all of the $0.99 iTunes charges on your credit card…
For all those times where I rolled over huffily in the bed, trying to fall asleep by the light of your iPhone…
Because now, I understand.
Since the delivery of my iPhone on Thursday, I have..
- Played up to seven concurrent games of Words with Friends (aka Scrabble) with other iPhone users (I’m ObjectivityRach).
- Figured out how to sync my Facebook friends with my contacts so that my Facebook profile pictures pop up when one of them calls me.
- Set up my pregnancy to be tracked to the minutest details. On my phone.
- Built a metropolis in Sim City.
- Taken, edited, and published pictures, all from my phone.
- Had a video conversation with Chris and Ali with the click of a button.
- Spent a bit too much of a percentage of my life on my phone, but yet not talking on it.
- Downloaded three free games for Ali, of which I’m not yet sure was a brilliant move or a rookie mistake.
And I haven’t even learned 1% of my new toy’s capabilities yet. Your input into my new obsession is quite welcome – favorite apps? Favorite features?
On a completely separate note, as you may already know, I like to get to know my readers. But there’s a couple of new commenters out there that your names don’t link back to your blog, if you have one. You may have it set that way on purpose, but I’ve found most people don’t realize it when that’s the case. So, if I haven’t been by to visit your blog and you like visitors, check and see – you can test it by logging out of Google, then clicking on your name on a comment on someone else’s blog.
Also – When I respond to comments, I typically do it via email if I already have your email address or if it’s linked on your comment. If you want to know how to do this, you can go to edit your profile –> email address. By putting an email address in there, it allows other bloggers to reply to your comments. Or, you could just email me your email address.
Of course, if you don’t want to do any of this at all, by all means ignore it. I just wanted you to know why I haven’t said “hey” if indeed I haven’t said “hey”.
Okay, enough housekeeping. My iPhone is calling me. What should I try next?
