While I try not to be a techno-douche, there are times when getting the shiniest and newest Thing is in my best interest. My old cell phone is a pile of crap, and my contract was coming up for Verizon, so they were offering me discount pricing. Most of the basic phones seemed even crappier, so after arguing with myself for a while, I decided to go ahead and upgrade to my first Smartphone.
Of course, I have no idea what I'm doing with it. I'm not really an app guy, so Angry Birds et al is staying the hell off my phone. But I did get the NFL app, so I can keep track of the Steelers next season while I'm supposed to be working on Sundays. (The better case scenario there is that I get a new day job by next football season and have my Sundays free so the app is pointless, but I know my luck: I'm stuck at Walmart for life.) I can tweet and Facebook and Myspace (which no one uses anymore) on the go if I want, but usually if I'm on the go, it means I don't want to be around that crap anyway.
So... I don't know. I like it, though, and it's waterproof. I want to text someone or make a tweet while taking a shower just to say I did. But otherwise, I'm quite happy just using my phone as, you know, a phone.
