Technology post

My favorite technology, and I NEVER thought I would say this, is the cell phone. A year or so ago, I didn't even think I needed one, and now, I'm calling, texting, and thinking about getting a new phone with a camera, and maybe even Web access. To have all that power in that little phone that goes everywhere with you is just amazing. I do think that cell phones will really change the way we live, even moreso than they have already. In Japan, cell phone novels are a big hit - reading on your cell phone!


  1. Isn't it crazy how we got along perfectly well without cell phones for, what, ages, and all of a sudden, we're lost without them? I try to think back (way back) to 2002, when I got my first cell phone, and wondered how I coped before that. How did people get in touch with me? My husband and I don't even have a land line now! I'm very guilty of lusting after that new latest phone-gadget-thingie, and wish I had more texting built into my plan. :)

  2. I know!! Am actually thinking about a smart phone next time - surfing the web - on my phone!! It's crazy, and the texting thing is completely addictive - I may need to increase my plan for that, too

  3. I agree about the cell phone. I was one of the people who didn't want one at first - I didn't want everyone to be able to call me all the time! But last year I bought a phone with a keyboard because I text so much. And I was leaving the house to go to the park with my daughter the other day and had to go back inside because I forgot my phone. I was only going to the park! But it's a way of life now, and there have been several times having a cell phone has been a life-saver.
