my phone's smarter than yours
I got my first smartphone years ago. Although I don't think it was that smart. Or maybe it was user error.
I barely could access the Internet...it churned at dial-up speed. The camera on the phone took horrible photos. And the phone weighed a gazillion pounds.
But man, I was proud to have it.
Because at the time, I was one of the rare few on this little known site called Facebook.
Now it seems everyone's got a smartphone. I have two. (Pipe down back there, one's for work.)
I've been known to
That's when the smartphone becomes a dumbphone.
But the smartphone can be such a great tool. So much so that I've upgraded phones three times to my handy dandy Droid now. I. Could. Not. Live. Without my phone.
I recently read one third of moms use their smartphones to gain access to health information.
Hello? Of course we do. Who hasn't sat in their doctor's exam room and Googled a diagnosis the minute the physician closed the door? I want to know what prescription I'm driving to the pharmacy. And I want to know what kind of day I'm up against with whatever-it-is-thingamgig-diagnosis I've been given.
But that also means we're using our phones for so much more.
I use Twitter not only to stay up-to-date with current events and breaking news. But I use it to keep in contact with the many communities and friends I have made. CLE peeps, mom bloggers, Disney enthusiasts. Without Twitter and the instant access my phone allows, I wouldn't be able to feel so connected to so many fabulous people.
My phone also makes me an educated shopper. I utilize the QR code reader to do price comparisons. I also read product reviews while in store before making purchases.
While Amara's on her DS, what's wrong with Mom2Amara multitasking? The smartphone is phenomenal.
I feel so empowered with my smartphone. I am Mom. Hear me roar!
