My run-of-the-mill, not so great to look at, small screen, ugly fonted, app deprived, gets no oohs and aahs when I pull it out of my bag, old Blackberry is looking better and better to me everyday. I became the proud, excited owner of the iPhone 3Gs a couple of weeks ago.
((((( I think it was peer pressure )))))
And since then, I've been unable to make a phone call, check voicemail, type an email, send an email, type anything or snap a picture that's in focus on the first try.
((((( Wasn't this thing supposed to be easy-to-use? )))))
It's not just the on-screen keyboard, although that has been a lot more challenging than " you'll get used to it" friends shared prior to my purchase. Guess what? I'M NOT GETTING USED TO IT PEOPLE!!
((((( The apps are cool )))))
I've successfully downloaded some very cool apps, all FREE, cause I'm not putting another penny into this thing until I'm sure it's staying with me. Am planning to use the Glowstick tonight at the Crosby, Stills and Nash concert. I love Shazam, but wonder why when I sing a song into the dang thing it doesn't recognize it. And I've been told I can carry a tune by some very good friends. Although come to think of it... they have iPhones.
((((( I'm afraid to say I don't like it )))))
I'm not alone in only being in-like with my iPhone. Although those of us in this camp only feel comfortable sharing our horror stories and disdain in private, behind closed doors, we are growing in numbers.
((((( My dear friend and I comforted each other on it yesterday )))))
So in this summer of health care debate, where a congressman yelled "you lie" to the President of the United States during his speech to congress, why are we afraid to be out with our honest iPhone feelings?
((((( iPhone lovers, you lie! )))))
