Linda Goodnight here wondering if you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by technology? I mean, let’s face it. We have a lot of choices. I recently decided to get a new cell phone, so I went into my provider’s store. The clerk took one incredulous look at my old flip phone and said, “How long have you had this thing?” Unfortunately, I couldn’t remember back that far, so I said, “a long time,” to which he replied, “No kidding. I’ve never seen a phone like this.” Okay, so he’s really young and his idea of ancient does not match mine.
Mr. Younger-than-my-shoes showed me around the mind-boggling display of new devices, most of which have nothing to do with calling home to let the family know I’m running late. A phone these days can do just about anything except your laundry. And I suspect it won’t be long until we can sync the washer with the phone so it has Junior’s baseball uniform scrubbed and ready to go before his big game tonight. I’m serious. The other day, my son used his iPhone to set his home DVR while he was at my house! Phones come with so many options and apps and software, it makes my head spin faster than that little satellite dish looking for a cell tower.
Now, about that new cell phone? I’m still looking.
Help a girl out. What kind of phone do you recommend?
And is anyone else overwhelmed by the sheer variety of available devices?
