First, I let me say that I love my iPhone. I’m not a technology person at all, but I use the heck out of my iPhone and enjoy every minute of it. Except apparently I haven’t quite mastered the art of hanging on to it while there’s a hard surface beneath me.
That’s right, I dropped iPhone number two a little while ago, and the next day the sound to one of the headphones stopped working. I headed to the Apple store in hopes that they could fix it, but no go. The suggested I could try to fix it myself if I wanted, but I had visions of me shocking myself or something and gave that a pass.
So…I got the 3G S as a replacement. I’m cringing at the thought of the bill that’ll be coming along with that each month. It’s “only” supposed to be $10 more a month, but I have my doubts as to that. On the bright side, my dropped phone was covered by AMEX, so at least the replacement itself was free. Let’s hope this one makes it significantly longer.
Ok, enough of my phone news. Here’s what’s been going on elsewhere in the pf blogging world:
