I was out and about yesterday, which is rare for me on a weekend. I tend to be a homebody, preferring to stay in and get some writing done than hustle off and “be in the world.” So, if you saw me, you are indeed lucky. Or not, depending on your preference.
I am decidedly not an outdoors person, and yesterday was spent in the great outdoors for the most part. I have quite a few bug bites to show for it, to prove that I was indeed out there, living life. Thank goodness I had my phone with me, so all was not lost.
Speaking of phones, now is the time to eat the words I’ve said so often in the past, because, as of a couple of weeks ago, I am now the proud owner of an iPhone (damn you, Steve Jobs), words I said would never pass my lips. However, after all the ribbing from my wife died down (she’s always been a proud iPhone owner), I explained that my reasoning hasn’t changed. My needs have.
And, lord have mercy, my needs at this moment can be fulfilled by an iPhone. Yes, I just typed those words.
Of course, as an Android enthusiast for “lo these many years,” it’s been a tough transition, and continues to be so. I miss the back button, and can’t quite recall from time to time how to get back to the previous screen. The screen shot feature is also a debacle for me on occasion (but getting less so), and having a lightning cable is just odd. But it is definitely proving me right in that it takes care of my needs.
So, I’ve joined the dark side. I’ve gone over to the legion of people who I’ve ridiculed for so many years. I don’t mind taking my lumps for it. So long as this iPhone keeps suiting my needs. I’m just glad I could get it in white.
