Stepping In To The Future


TorchBeing that I spend all day on my laptop one would think that I was particularly tech savvy. It’s not that I’m not tech savvy it’s just that…well technology just doesn’t turn me on like it tends to do for my better half. New tech toys, great…but what’s wrong with the old one that worked? Well we have our cell phones on ATT and have the option to upgrade our phones once every two years and my phone was up for an upgrade. I had a Blackberry Curve and I like it, I particularly like it because Buzz and I text each other a lot (generally from the store to say “what did you want again?) and since he has a Blackberry as well it’s free using their messenger system. So anyhow, when I saw the commercial for the Blackberry Torch I said that it looked pretty cool and not more than a few days later Buzz brought home a new phone for me. Now this phone, the Blackberry Torch cost our $18 upgrade fee and $99 because Best Buy price matches Walmart. My old phone will go on eBay and bring in at least enough to cover those two fees so I don’t mind that at all. It’s just that…well, I don’t know where anything is. I feel somewhat like my mother when she tries to work “that internet”, the darn phone won’t listen to me and I swear that on screen keyboard purposely misspells messages to make me look incompetent. Lucky for me it has a slide out keyboard that does the job perfectly. Over all it’s a pretty spiffy looking phone and I like feeling “up to date” with a fancy touch screen phone but at the same time I feel slightly out of my element…something like a chimp trying to use a keyboard.
