My iPhone finally came to the end of its useful time on earth. First, it fell out of my purse and shattered the screen. Of course, this was the one day I didn’t use its protective case. I was able to find a replacement part on Amazon and had a techy friend replace it, using a YouTube self help video.
It worked ok for a while, then I dropped it in the dishwater while attempting to multi-task one day. Two hours with a hair drier on cool, and it worked ok, but it was never completely right again.
About two weeks ago, I found another crack. Finally, a small triangle shaped shard fell out of the glass, and I could see the inner workings of the phone. It was time for a replacement.
Fortunately, it was also time for our bi-annual upgrade. I almost got another 3gs iPhone but was told that it was possible by the end of my next two years, its software may not be supported by Apple anymore. Also, my husband pointed out that I didn’t utilize the iPhone as it was intended (I never purchased an app; only used free ones).
I went back and forth and ended up with the Motorola Atrix. It’s definitely different from the iPhone, but I’m starting to get used to it. Some friends told me I’d like it for blogging on the go, so I thought I’d try it out.
Here’s the first picture I took on the phone. It’s a fruit pizza with peaches, pluots and blueberries from my Milk & Honey basket and blackberries and farmer’s cheese from the farmers’ market! Yum! I was definitely pleased with the photo quality.
