After trying almost every other brand of mobile phone over the past quarter century, I finally ended up with an iPhone. I guess it was inevitable. The kids have had iPhones for the past few years; they’ve told me why they like them, but it didn’t seem to make an impression. Nevertheless, it was important to them.
Several of the family smartphones were showing their age. I’m suspicious that just like the Mission Impossible tape players, smartphones self-destruct when their amortization is complete, but I cannot prove it. In any case, one had several cracks across the screen, while another had a chip out of the side of the screen.
In any case, we ended up with iPhones because of one feature not available on other smartphones.
When we can’t figure out how to do something, we can ask the kids for help.
