I am totally excited (still) by the fact that I can blog from my phone – without that handy feature, I’d hardly ever blog at all. With it, I’ve managed to get 10 posts in this month, a third of my total for all of 2007. And that’s not even counting all the posts I think about, but never quite get around to starting (or finishing) on my phone.
I also still love my phone … it’s a little bulky, and I’ve beaten it up several times by dropping it, but its slide-out keyboard continues to rule over all. Also, I recently discovered why I can’t get an iPhone – it doesn’t have a stylus, and having to take my hands out of my gloves in the single-digit weather to type numbers or look up information is a deal-breaker.
Other things I can do from my phone:
- Receive email all the time on almost all of my accounts (I am an email junkie)
- Get directions (awesome on the way to a meeting or a party)
- Check on Facebook, including uploading photos, videos and notes
- Watch my sports scores (GO PATS – 18-0!!!!!!)
I do however, sometimes think it is unhealthy for me to be so constantly connected; there’s a sense of never, ever unplugging from the information highway. But actually, I’ve also found that, when I get tired of the constant stream, I’m pretty good at ignoring it or leaving it in another room.
