I started asking questions and the next thing I knew, I was buying a phone.
I really truly needed one. My Motorola Razr is very old and every time I charged it, it would die within a day. That's not right.
Besides, everyone at work is encouraged to get one. A smart phone, that is.
The problem is, I'm not sure I will be able to use it.
When I told Thomas that I'll be 60 this year, he just shook his head and told me how easy an iPhone is to use. I told him I do have a MacBook and he said if I can use a MacBook, I can use an iPhone.
We'll see about that.
I think my next purchase will be an iPad.
