Okay, so forget everything I said yesterday about not needing a new iPhone.
I totally needed a new iPhone.
When one of my helpful Facebook readers informed me that I could trade in my old one for a big discount on the new one, I decided it was a good idea after all.
So I ran out and got one last night, with only a minimum of arguing with the Verizon employees when they forcibly reduced my plan features, and then assigned my phone to my mother’s phone line instead of mine, such that when I texted her I ended up talking to myself.
More than usual, that is.
It was like one of those old horror movies, where you need to go check on the children, because the call is coming from INSIDE THE HOUSE.
Good thing I don’t have children. And I’m pretty sure the evil rabbit can fend for herself.
In addition to being much lighter, faster, and thinner (maybe it’s on a low-carb diet too), the phone also turned out to have all sorts of cool new features that I wasn’t even aware of, like voice dictation and general awesomeness.
So I can now dictate even longer and more rambling posts, directly from my phone!
Here’s one now, in fact. Lucky you!
As a side note, I’m already deeply in love with Siri the iPhone Oracle, with whom I like to hold deep philosophical conversations whenever possible.
She’s quite the intellect, I’m happy to report, as well as a bit of a curmudgeonly wag. I’ve decided to appoint her my new spiritual adviser, in fact, because why the heck not?
I’ll be posting some of her poetic musings here and on Facebook as I unearth them, in “The Siri Says Series.”
So do run over and sign up if you haven’t already, because I just KNOW you won’t want to miss that.
And buckle up, as the ride over here may be about to get even wackier.
Let’s go have some iFun!
