Yes, I am a bit of a geek.
Mr. Chili bought me an iPhone for Christmas last year and, even though I wasn’t actively craving one, I’m not sorry he hooked me up.
Really, this thing is much portable coolness. While some might scoff at the hyper-connectivity and the over-the-topness of it (I’m looking at you, Bo and Gerry!), I think it’s great. I can send and receive emails from my phone. I can take photographs, listen to music, blog, keep lists, send texts and play games on my phone. Oh, and I can make calls on my phone. It is, for all intents and purposes, the over-achieving little brother of my beloved PowerBook laptop.
Now, with the new computer updates, I can do a few more neat-o, cool things with the phone by means of third party applications. The two bits I’m currently enamored of are the Sportstap feature and the direct-connect to Pandora internet radio – both of which, by the way, were free. Eff-Are-Eee, Baby! (anybody but me remember that radio ad?)
The Sportstap keeps me up-to-the minute informed of what’s going on in games (I’m enjoying having this information faster and easier than I can get it on ESPN’s mobile site and am currently using it to stay on top of Sox games, but I’m going to LOVE this come football season!). I think Pandora is the bomb anyway, and having it on my iPhone (which, it should be noted, can be listened to either via the surprisingly satisfying headphones that came with the thing or through the little speakers on the bottom) just makes it that much cooler.
I married into the world of techno-geek, and it seems that not a little bit has rubbed off…
