Get Off My Lawn

I can't tell if he's laughing or crying.


This weekend the wife and I got new smart phones: the Galaxy Note 4, and oh sweet lord these are nice devices. Like an object from the future.

My wife’s previous phone was one of those old-timey flip phones that you only really see in museums. So for her this is like going from riding a moped to driving a Ferrari. I just hope she doesn’t kill herself or someone else with all that new horsepower.

  1. I went from a flip phone to a “smart” phone only two months ago. My niece referred to my old phone as a “dumb” phone. Since she is ten, I didn’t think it was cute. But I got the point. Tell your wife she’s not alone. There’s more of us out there – I just know there are!

    • Hahaha. Actually my wife has a friend who still has a flip phone. When Maureen got her smart phone her friend said she was flying the flag at half mast for poor “flippy.”

    • As I have no pc, my world is coloured by what I can see and read through my phone. At one time, the only game in town was ‘WAP’ – Wireless Application Protocol. What shite it was, too.
      Towards the end of 2005 I heard of Opera Mini, on a site called Wapocolypse. I downloaded it to my “dumb phone”_and started zipping through the net.
      I now have an Android, and 4 browsers in my phone plus a bunch of apps so I can read for a and blog sites to my hearts content.
      Just remember not to drop the phone… Percussive maintenance doesn’t work with smart phones, enjoy!

  2. It took me an age to get my first smart phone, now I’m useless without it. I lost one once and it took a lot more than a bunch of phone numbers with it, my whole life stopped for a couple of days. Sheesh!

  3. Yeah, I pay my bills, do all my banking, take all my photos, book, pay for and check in all my flights, track and trade my share portfolio, I can even see what’s going on in my shed via cctv…and very occasionally I make a phone call…


  4. Once you go smart phone, you never go back…

  5. Me I’ll keep my “dumb’ phone until it dies! If I wanted my phone to do all that I’d buy a tablet that could dial! Keys are too small on phones!

  6. It’s funny. I’m seriously considering going back to the old dumb phone. It’s not that I dislike my IPhone. I like it. And that’s the problem. I want to eliminate all of the distractions it allows me to have.
