I just love my phone. It’s awesome. But why doesn’t it get old after a while? You know – just become something that i use when i need it, and aside from that, it just sits there in my pocket?
I think there are several reasons for this. First is the fact that’s it’s just so useful. I mean, it does so much more than calls. It shows me weather and news, which are constantly updated. I can check movies, sports scores (like i ever do that), order tickets, find a place to eat, play a quick game, read a book, update my facebook status. So reason #1 – it’s a window into the digital world and i’m constantly using it. Thus it never gets old.
But i think, at least personally for me, the number one reason i love my phone is because i can write programs for it. I can have it do whatever i can magine. It’s my “little computer” (as Alex used to so fondly call these things when he was younger). There’s always some new frontier to be conquered. Some new thing to try and make it do. It never gets old, because i’ve never exhausted all the possibilities.
