Barry surprised me with a new phone on Monday. The one had was from 2003– but his is the one that really needs replacing. We got it when we lived in Albuquerque– so 2001 probably? It has a greenish screen with pixelated gray text. He had to hold the battery on with tape for a while until he found its discarded twin in a box of junk and switched batteries with it.
Anyway, as I was saying, I got a new phone. It’s pretty cool. It’s an iPhone 4. It can do everything but fold laundry. If you find the app for that make sure you let me know.
I’m having fun with the Hipstamatic. Changing lenses and flashes and film with a flick of my finger is so fun. I’ve never been much into technology and games (except for tetris while I was supposed to be writing papers in college), but I have to say this gadget is pretty cool. I mean, it reminds me when it’s time to take kids to karate– my hand written paper planners could never do that for me, so even things that were written down in multiple places would get forgotten.
And my kids can’t keep their hands off of it. I told them I will not put kid tempting games on it because it needs to be a PHONE– but maybe I could find a good knitting app…
