Apparently yesterday’s Blackberry blackout had a lot of people up in the air. I did not know about it because my Blackberry is out of the loop these days so to speak. I had to switch it down to the cheapest phone plan when I got laid off. It basically receives calls and makes calls. I can’t even text anyone.
I do admit I missed all the features when I had to give them up. It was however not the end of the world. My question is are we too dependent on our cell phones? This question was raised on a talk show I was watching this morning. The hosts all had different answers ranging from “I still have an old fashion answering machine” to “I have always been an Apple person and can not live without it.”
I remember when the new iphone4s came out. People were lined up before the stores even opened. I would like to have an iphone just as much as the next person. But there is no way I will stand in line to get it.
Yes, I miss my cell phone features but I need to eat too!
Just wait until I get another job. I can feel a new Android in my future.
