It seems like, over the years, our lives have become cluttered with gadgets. Things to make our lives "easier." Cell phones. E-readers. IPods and MP3 players. Laptops. Tablets.
Well, I hate to admit this but, I am a gadget addict.
I LOVE gadgets.
Anything electronic can keep me occupied for a while.
First it was the computer. Yes, I am of the generation where computers weren't part of my formative years and so they were fascinating (and still are).
Then it was the iPod. This got me into podcasts which are another addiction of mine.
The whole cell phone/smart phone thing has gone by me, however. Hubby and I don't call each other a whole lot and so have never really seen the need for a cell phone. After all, if we go on trips, it is normally together so why would we need a cell phone to call each other?
Yes, I am aware of the safety perspective of having a cell phone - especially since they have systematically taken out the pay phones across the country. I DO have a cell phone - prepaid and VERY basic - that I take with me for safety. Hubby has the same set up himself but . . . he never takes his phone with him so I suppose it isn't worth too much.
Lately, Hubby and I have been talking smart phones. With my future career pretty much requiring smart phone accessibility, a smart phone is certainly in my future. We just aren't sure WHEN in my future.
We are so far out of the "loop" in terms of cell phones, we have absolutely no idea where to start.
Luckily, Consumer Reports' most recent edition is about smart phones and service providers.
I guess it is time to read up!
