iPhone!!! OMG!!!

Through a series of magical and wonderful events- I have inherited an iPhone.  A few years ago, one of my brothers got the iPhone for Christmas.  It has been passed from him, to my other brother, and now to me- for the incredible trade/price of "Laura's current iPod and cellphone".  It was a great swap in my opinion!!

Now this iPhone is a 3G (gasp!) which means its technically 2 generations behind the times.  Some people have gawked at me for being so excited about such 'stone age' technology.

Here's my thought- when the iPhone first came out in 2007 or 2008 or whatever, I would've been happy thrilled ecstatic to get one.  There is nothing that has changed about me or my technology needs since 2008.  Nothing.  I still want to make phone calls, check my email, have a good calendar and a bunch of silly apps.  Same as I would've wanted then.  So any sense of the 3G not being good enough for me is 100% based on marketing and consumerism and 0% based on what I actually need from a smartphone.

That's enough blogging for now.  I haven't played with my iPhone in 3 solid minutes- so I've got to get back to that. :-)


  1. Wow! Our lives were parallel this week. I just inherited an iphone too! It's fantastic. My favorite app so far is the post it app or awesome notes, because I love making to do lists. Enjoy! I've only had it a week and I'm addicted.
