When I was young, car dealers would cover their windows and put new models on giant turntables as the September debut of the new models was a source of amazement and excitement...Now all cars look the same and you can see them on the Internet anyway...
These days the collective gasp of excitement seems to revolve around the introduction of a cell phone model....The MSM gets all worked up over the latest I-something and how many Apps it has.
With my Voyager phone increasingly cranky and the touch screen balking more often, I have to consider a new phone....Should it be the latest and greatest that Verizon offers. ?..or something already in circulation...
I have been to the Verizon store a couple of times in recent months...Its not the cost that bothers me..its the complexity...As soon as the clerk tells me there are 15,000 apps, the Luddite in me surfaces and I race for the door.
Now people like my friends Scott Gray or Tom Constanzo always have to have the latest gadget....And I like to think I am smart enough to figure things out, I just don't know if I want to.
I was in a funeral home in Carthage yesterday, standing in line talking about the stuff you talk about with strangers and three teens were on the couch playing a video game on their phone, oblivious to the feigned and authentic mourning around them.
You see, I don't need to be able to do that, so I am not sure if this "iPhone5" is for me.
