It took me a long time, but I finally got an iPhone. And it's a game changer. I can finally laugh (or understand) the jokes when people say, "There's an app. for that". There's some weeeiiirrrd apps. And also some very practical, useful ones like the weather, sports scores, and kama sutra. Maybe the last one is more elective. Anyway, texting while driving is now near impossible. Which of course is a good thing, as no one should text while driving in any case, even with a BlackBerry. Perhaps they'll create an app where you can send a text through voice activism. Or do they have that already? I'm so out of the loop. You should'nt do many other things while driving besides, well, driving, and even that is hard enough as it is. Especially when the Texans are visiting your state (ahem, district) making left turns from the far right lane. BTW, state or district, we really got thrown under the bus in this new budget deal...thanks Obama.
There's numerous accessories to fashion your iPhone. You can get a protective case, a Juicy Couture one if you're pretentious. You can get BlueTooth connect. You can get an earpiece. You can get a car-charger. Consumerism is a full-time job and Apple has got us buying gizmos and gadgets so frequently where we forget the difference between what we 'need' and what we 'want'. It becomes 'weed' when the two mix, and that's precisely what you want to smoke after all the time you'll spend donning your iPhone with the proper attire. But that's a whole another expense, and I don't know where I can find the nearest dealer (nor the money for that matter), but I could probably find the dispensaries if I lived in a place where that sort of thing was legal. Not that I smoke weed, because I don't. But it's nice to know there's an app for that if I ever move to a place that does.
So if someone stole your iPhone what would it say about you? No longer would the numbers be the first things people would look at. Or photos. That's so passe. Now you could create a composite image of a person solely by assumptions and stereotypes if you picked up a strangers phone. Pink case, almost certainly female. Huffington Post app, definite liberal. Gas pump saver app - we have a conscientious shopper and a car owner. And you can go on and on.
So what does your phone say about you? Or maybe you don't have one, if that's the case, the people at Apple have a message for you....Buy our products...or else. suffer in obscurity. Unless you're like my Pops, who heeds no mind to the whacky technologies that come along passing them over like speed bumps. I guess that's why he moved to a place with dispensaries....
