I am 2 years into my love affair with my IPhone. I first bought it out of desperation because I was so unsatisfied with the Blackberry with whom I was previously involved. It constantly was making calls behind my back (pocket), it would often cut out prematurely due to lack of battery power, the keyboard was not proportionate to the casing which left me completely unhappy. Although the memories are sweet I had to bail on the Blackberry, there was no chemistry (or technology for that matter). I finally broke it off and invested in an IPhone. From the get-go I knew this would be a beautiful relationship.
The IPhone is every persons dream. A cell phone, IPod and a web browser that neatly fits in your pocket and would never sneak in a butt call when you aren’t looking. It romances you with music, video, email, notes, and so much more. It’s an easy relationship, there’s no extra baggage unless you want there to be then you can find a plethora of accessories at your local IPhone outlets. It will get along well with most of your other technology such as your ITunes, videos, and podcasts. It’s handsome and sleek and all your non-IPhone friends will certainly be green with envy.
Not only does the IPhone come with its own redeeming qualities but you can outfit it with an endless selection of applications. I often check out the latest apps out of curiosity and because i often write about tech and gadgets. I’m an avid tweeter and have checked out most of the apps for Twitter. My favorite 3rd party Twitter application is Echofon because it’s so simple to navigate.
I no longer use a land-line. My phone can be found either connected to my laptop, in my purse or in my hands, we are inseparable. I’m also an addicted texter, I obsessively check my email and love that I can put all my accounts on my phone. I also love that I can surf the net and download all my podcast, audio-books and music which makes a great back-up resource. My phone has been my main source for picture taking as well. I’m a big fan of Instagram and Hipstamatic which takes vintage pictures. I few times my computer or Internet was down and my IPhone was a godsend since it basically can do everything my computer can do. I like the sleek design the easy navigation and the compatibility with my Mac.
I anticipate a long and lasting relationship with the IPhone. I may find myself curious about the Android, or the Blackberry again but for now I’m committed to the IPhone.The attraction is too hard to resist.
