I made it to the AT&T store last night before closing, and came out with a shiny new phone. And this one doesn’t flip open! I’d been avoiding getting a smartphone, for fear of losing myself completely into the world of hyper-connectivity. I mean, i’m sitting in front of a computer for 3/4 of every day for work. Then I switch to my personal laptop for blogging, browsing, and other online mischief. Even when traveling, i can get online on a plane, or the nearest wifi hotspot. The only time I’m offline is when I’m out in the middle of the lake.
However, dropping my old phone in the toilet was a sign. From somewhere. To just get on with it. And so I have.
I’m getting used to my new device. I must say, having Julie here comes in handy — live-in iphone tech support.
I quickly loaded it up with all those essential apps. Including the wordpress app. I eventually got on to viewing this blog on my new phone. I do not like how the twenty eleven theme looks on a smartphone sized display. Boring! And, why is the background white? I am going to have to find time to change sheila365.com over to another, more versatile theme. I’ll put that on my todo list. Any suggestions for a good theme for photoblogging on wordpress.com that looks nice on different sized devices?
By the way, I found this page with instructions on how to take a screen shot of your iphone’s display. Then you can just mail it to yourself. Very handy!
