My Name Is Snickerdoodle: New/Old Gadget

New/Old Gadget

I guess it's not so much a gadget, but better described as my new link to the world. It's the Instinct...and for those of you who are gadgetly challenge like me...it's a very cool touch screen cell phone. It's a hand-me-down x2. Ian and I had simple little Razor phones that we had problems from the beginning. It was the battery that was the main culprit and left us hanging in the lurch for too long. Ian really wanted the Instinct, but we just didn't have the cash to splurge on something that fancy. His brother, Logan (aka single/Mr. Money Bags) bought it for himself last year and was really disappointed. He is a major texter (one of those "talented"-can-text-while-the-phone-is-in-your-pocket) and the touch screen was just annoying to him. So he gave it to Ian for a very discounted price. Ian fell in love. Logan went back to his old Blackberry, but of course fell in love with another newer version of something fancy. He splurged and bought the newness. Ian got wind of it and the cogs in his mind started to turn. Of course Ian can not have too many gadgets and became smitten with the idea of me having something fancy. He gladly turned over the Instinct to me and got Logan's old phone again for a nominal fee. Gotta love family! I barely know how to turn on my phone, but I atleast feel fancy having it sit here on the desk...just waiting for anyone to call me...or text me...anyone...please!!!
