What kind of relationship do you have with your smart phone? Love it? Hate it? Can't live without it?
Don't get me wrong. I love my smart phone. But I think cell phone companies are deceptive. A smart phone is like a young child - you must teach it to make it be as smart (or smarter) than you are. You must monitor it to make sure it is actually behaving correctly. And you must have a sense of humor, otherwise, when you least expect it you'll have a meltdown. All because something the smart phone was supposed to do, didn't happen.
For example, I have a weather app on my home screen. It often blinks and tells me I'm in Orlando, Florida. Now, don't get me wrong. I like Orlando. But I live in California. I've often - with blinding trust - checked the weather and rushed out of the house thinking it was going to be 85 degrees, only to find the high was in the 50s. You must be alert (and smart) to use some of these apps.
If there's one thing my smart phone has taught me, it's to slow down and look twice. And isn't that the best advice?
My experiences were the inspiration for a story line in Always a Bridesmaid. I'd love to hear what fun you've had with your smart phone.
