Apreciating mobility


I remember my father’s first mobile phone. It was slightly bigger and a lot heavier than my current lap top bag. It was more of a status symbol than usable mobile communication device. A few years later he got the first practical mobile, this time the size of a brick, and very expensive.

I bought my first mobile, a Nokia 3210 when I was 18, and used it very rarely. My flat had a landline, and that was mostly sufficient. Then, over the years I got various newer, lighter, prettier and smarter devices to the point where my phone is both prettier and smarter than me!

While sometimes I’d like to be more disconnected, I do apreciate the fact that I can blog while waiting for the concert to begin.

    I am just getting used to having and keeping a phone. Previous attempts have resulted in much forgetting, losing, and leaving uncharged. Now, that I am always carrying it, I do appreciaee the connection – sometimes I can make calls or “work” while running to get kids, for example. But, I am also ALWAYS “available”…..

      I have to admit taht I mostly text and e-mail on my phone. I have a hard time understanding speech over mobile phones. I hardly ever answer mine, and I have no idea what my ring tone is like, because the first time I turned it on I put it on silent, and have never put the sound back on. 馃檪

    I remember when my dad bough his first mobile, it was like a brick, huge and heavy. Even when it started getting all sorts of problems (and other much smaller and more clever ones were available) he insisted getting it fixed and wouldn’t get a new one until that poor thing literally fell apart 馃檪
