I love my Android phone. I know IPhone users love their phones too, but Android is the future, trust me. IPhoners, get onboard or you'll be left behind.
I have one of the new Samsung GalaxyS™ phones. Although there are lots of good phones, I'm very happy with this phone. It has capabilities I haven't even touched yet.
Blogging on the go, for one.
Facebook is fun, and its easy to post quick tidbits of thoughts in your status, but to actually write and explore your thoughts a little bit requires a slightly longer forum.
Blogging on the go, for instance.
I sometimes wonder, how did I ever occupy myself before this technology came along?
I have books gathering dust, but I can download fresh copies on my phone's Kindle app. I can read my Bible on my bible app (which is actually very cool - access to several different transactions and word searches at my fingertips). Facebook and my photos are all available at a touch.
I am more connected and share my life with more people than ever before, without seeing, touching, or actually talking to a living soul!
That sounded more appealing in my head than it did when I re-read it on the page.
My dad and I go 'round and 'round about the wisdom of being plugged in to all this modern technology. He thinks the tech has changed people and taken away our desire to connect in the real world, and somehow people are damaged by it. I think people are basically still the same but misuse the technology, mistaking the exchange of photons on a display screen for the actual intimacy of looking someone in the eyes when you talk to them.
I guess balance is the answer, as in most things. Use the tech, but don't let it rule over you.
(Adrienne Bankert on KCRA is talking about a DroidX giveaway the station is doing as I write this post! Funny!)
Well, one thing you still can't do, even with a cool advanced phone like mine, is enjoy the conversation and share the warmth of having a meal with a good friend.
Speaking of, my daughter just texted me to remind me we are meeting for breakfast this morning.
I don't think we'll need to text across the table.
