Along for the Ride
We had a new passenger on this latest trip of ours. My husband’s new iPhone made it possible for him to do e-Mail on those long stretches of the Pennsylvania Turnpike where your only other company is scores of trucks.
The iPhone is quickly becoming his most prized possession. We went on a bike ride yesterday, leaving the door to our house wide open as we always do. Ten minutes into the ride, he exclaimed “I left my iPhone back at the house on the table. What if someone steals it?” I reminded him that any intruder would probably be much more interested in the 3 laptops that were sitting there in plain view.
But then, who knows? The iPhone is incredibly small for the capabilities it provides. To have all your music, your cell phone, your access to the Internet ANYWHERE all in something that easily fits in your pocket is pretty amazing.
It made me wonder why computer manufacturers don’t work a deal with AT&T to provide the same uber-Internet service in all computers. For me the downside to the iPhone is that you still need skinny little fingers to type anything and the screen is by default miniscule.
I’m sure we’ve just seen the tip of the technological iceberg in the iPhone. I’m sure within 5 years I could be posting this to Blogger as I sit here as a passenger with nothing better to do while I count down the miles.
I am so excited because in just a few hours I can give my Jake a big hug and tell him I’m home once again for a while at least. Going away is nice, but coming home to meet a big slobbering dog is the best!
