One gadget in my possession that is barely used yet I consider to be very important whenever I’m on the road is my cell phone. Being the stay at home wife that I am, it is a given that I’m home most of the time and that explains the frequency of it being in use.
However, on the very rare instance (i.e. in cases when I simply forget to bring it with me) that I don’t have my cell phone with me, I feel insecure and incomplete. Perhaps many would consider that dependency but for a tech idiot gal like me I don’t think that it is the case.
With technology being so advanced and new versions of cell phones being released at the speed of lightning, my two year old cell phone is definitely obsolete. Having said that however, at this point, I just don’t see the need of upgrading my unit to the latest iphone. Thus, I take obsolescence over being on trend.
I’ve never been drawn to electronic gadgets all my life. In fact, it took me forever to acquire my first ever digital camera. No amount of prodding from well meaning friends and family prompted me to get my feet wet into digital cameras until I found myself looking ridiculously out of this world on a trip to Paris while aiming my trusty 135 film camera. Looking back, I can’t help but laugh.
But that’s just me. When it comes to gadgets, they’re meant to stay until they’re broken.
