I have a complicated, love/hate relationship with gadgets. I’m pretty resistant to them, actually. It’s mostly because I know that once I am aware of how awesome they are, I’ll think I can’t live without them. This has happened to me on numerous occasions, mostly because I was prodded by my Husband. And then I became hooked.
Examples of this:
1. The internet
3. The iphone (or really any kind of “smart” phone)
4. Cable TV
6. Automatic digital coffee makers
Husband is a gadget freak, but he seems to understand my fear of the unknown and has kindly guided me through uncharted territory. When I washed my iphone in the washing machine, he went to the AT&T store and got me a fancy replacement.
Here it is.
It’s an HTC Inspire 4G. Mine is red. I hated it at first, in all it’s shiny fanciness.
It scared me.
I love it now.
Moral of this story: sometimes, Husband is right. Not often … let’s not get carried away here. But sometimes.
