Yesterday I caved and ordered an iPhone. I need all my work gadgets to speak the same language and having my phone speaking Android while everything else spoke iOS wasn’t working for me. I was also tired of wrestling with the Android platform and, I’m sorry, but when you go surfing support forums and the constant chorus is “root it and flash it and rom it” or whatever, that doesn’t work for me. I want it to work the way it is. My Apple products do.
And, yes, I know there’s an iPhone 5 announcement imminent. First of all, you can chase technology’s tail forever. By the time everybody gets their iPhone 5, there will be rumors of the iPhone 6. And one of the most common iPhone 5 rumors is that it will have a larger screen. After six months with the Droid X, I don’t want a larger screen. I’ll be perfectly happy with the iPhone 4.
Now I’m prowling, awaiting the Fedex guy. Unfortunately, there are a lot of utility trucks in the neighborhood today and they sound a lot like the Fedex truck. I’ve gotten in a month’s worth of exercise already this morning, running to my back door.
