|« Getting Pics Off A Bad Memory Card||Bringing In the New Year 2011 Style! »|
This Christmas was very, very good to me. I got assorted wunnerful gifties: clothes, moola, a small food processor (home-made salsa baby!) and the best thing you can ever get a geek - shiny, new glad-I-didn’t-have-to-shell-out-for-it-tech, complete w/that new gadget smell: A Motorola Droid X smart phone!
Anyone who knows me understands how practical I am, even though I am a die-hard übergeek. I love the shiny-new toys but unless I have a reason for it, I almost never buy it just because it’s shiny or cool, that’s for pretend ubergeeks or those people they put up those ridiculous impulse aisles in supermarkets. I buy shinies when they’re reasonably priced, suit a purpose I need them for and are well-worth the dough I have to shell out.
My previous cell phone was a nice Samsung Trance. It wasn’t a smartphone, it made calls (sadly not the most important feature in a phone for a ton of morons out there), played music had a camera and fit in the the coin pocket of my jeans. It was small, tiny even, super thin and had more than enough features to make me happy. Oh, and no stupid flip the phone open to answer a call (I HATE THAT!), all you had to do was slide it open. To end a call *gasp* you slid it shut. Loved it!
But alas, Mr. Trance was immediately shoved in a drawer somewhere the minute I opened up that nicely wrapped box to discover I had now been gifted a Droid X this Christmas. (I don’t even know where I shoved the Trance, poor thing.)
To say I love my X is an understatement. I haven’t been this shocked since a very special birthday when my sistas gave me an iPod. This X is my first smartphone and X-tremely special just like my iPod.
I’ve always loved the Droid X since it came out and after showing it to my brother when he was in need of a new phone, he got one. My love of the phone (and the Android platform) was known to everyone I know, but still, I wasn’t really looking for one yet because my old phone fit my needs just fine and I was waiting for a good deal on it or the next better alternative later on when the time came.
Well, it came early on December 25th!
I immediately did a lot of reading and investigating to trick out and hack my phone. It wasn’t an hour old when I started downloading free apps and tricking the sucker out to customize it and expand it’s functionality, as any true ubergeek will do.
I take my Droid X everywhere I go and if I forget it for a second in the house I go and get it. While I wouldn’t call it immediate separation anxiety, if it’s not on my person or right beside me, I have to find it. It’s legal to marry a smartphone, right? If not it should be! Who’s with me?!
Droid. It’s what most people use. We are many. We are Droid.
