Everyone today knows that mobile phones have taken opened a new way to communicate with the world. With all of the new touch screen phones available today it is a wonder that anyone can decide which to buy. I had resisted the cellular siren call until my boss decided it was time to get on the bandwagon and start designing for mobile. Being a Mac guy there was only one way to go.
I had tried to dismiss those iPhone commercials for over two years. I’ve been a Mac guy ever since I bought my first Apple Mac Classic back in ’87. I would have bought the phone sooner but It didn’t have 3G or video. Plus, I had just bought a new Samsung and AT&T would have killed me in fees to upgrade. Then last month the stars aligned in the cosmos just at the time the boss gave me a sign. So with (almost) little hesitation I got online and ordered my new iPhone.
The last month has been a lot of fun. I’m still getting use to the keypad though. Typing this is a little slow in comparison to using a full size keyboard. Hitting the right key does take some practice, but I’m getting better at it. I’ve tried the single finger hunt and peck method but find the double thumb groove a little faster, when I don’t hit two keys that is.
I’ve also had a lot of fun downloading the free apps like this WordPress app I’m using right now. I doubt that I’ll do much mobile blogging for the WP blog though. Maybe a Twitter or two. Too much of this and I’m going to get thumb cramps. Speaking of which, I think i’ve had enough of this. I’m going back to my iMac before the text-Itis sets in.
