My New Toy

My five year old Nokia cell phone had to be retired.  There have probably been ten generations of phones since we got it.  What did I want to replace it?  I wanted a smart phone.  And not just any smart phone.  I wanted an iPhone 4.  Yes, despite all the bad press about them, I still wanted one.

This is my phone and I love it!  I have not had one moment of antenna problems. 

It is loaded with podcasts for exercise that I listen to while I walk.  Facebook and Twitter apps keep me up to the minute with my peeps.  The Yahoo app lets me look up the flavor of the day at Goodberry's, our favorite frozen custard place, to help us decide whether to stop on our way home from Raleigh.  (It doesn't matter what the flavor, we usually stop.)  Two weeks ago, we were stuck in traffic and I was able to use a local news station's app to see where we needed to go to get out of the traffic. 

I love my phone!  It could only be better if I could find a housekeeping app...  
That was free...

Just as I think this grandma is hip to technology, a three year old techo-wizard reminds me, "Your phone only has two games, Grandma Bea.  My daddy's has lots more."

PS - Just because I have a new phone doesn't mean I answer it.  Leave a message!
