I’m in a bit of a technology crisis. I am a technology nerd, who usually wants the best and first available mobile devices. When I moved to Lubbock the church here gave me a phone to use for church and personal business. It was nice to have a $0 phone bill, but the phone provided to me was a circa 1998 Sanyo flip phone. I know, I know it made perfectly good phone calls; but it didn’t balance my checkbook, didn’t allow me to browse the mobile Internet, and generally made me feel disconnected from the world.
Last week I finagled myself into a older model PDA phone, and the world was turning around for me. I was finally connected to my exchange server, and had something fun to play with when stuck for long periods of time at a kids playground. Until this week…
My wife is getting a new phone from her part-time job which is a much better phone than mine. Then my father told me that he got a new state-of-the art phone, the ATT Tilt. What is a techno-geek to do? I’m falling behind. It pains me that my wife has a better phone than mine; she doesn’t even know how to use it!
