To Bite the Apple or Not...

So, I’m pretty sure I’m going to upgrade to an iPhone this week. I’m fairly ambivalent about the whole thing. I like my sturdy little phone with the pop-out keyboard. It’s small, takes a beating, and does the job. Kind of like me, now that I think about it.

And, once I have the iPhone, I’ll have to decide whether to move to an electronic calendar or not. I feel like writing things out helps me mentally juggle all the mom schedules and the work deadlines, but I am willing to concede that the whole mess might be getting beyond my puny mortal brain.

I just don’t know, folks. What do you think?

Why I Don’t Want An iPhone
10. Apps—my husband needs no additional leverage in his quest to make me play Words with Friends.
9. I don’t think I used my iMac to its full potential.
8. I hate being trendy.
7. $$$$$$$$$$
6. Giving up my paper calendar.
5. It’s breakable.
4. Touch screen.
3. Learning curve.
2. I can get my work emails on it.
1. Too. Dang. Big.

Why I Do Want An iPhone
10. Apps—okay, okay, some of them are cool.
9. I loved my iMac.
8. Games to occupy the kids in THOSE situations.
7. Portable, incorporated iPod.
6. Portable, incorporated calendar.
5. Portable, incorporated GPS.
4. Sometimes you just need to Google it.
3. Better camera and more memory.
2. I can get my work emails on it.
1. All the cool kids have them.

Looking at the two lists, I’d have to say that the two main reasons I’m upgrading aren’t on the list: my current phone won’t hold a charge and my husband loves his iPhone a lot.

The better camera/memory is pretty tempting, though. And I'm fairly certain I'm just being grumpy about change. Change is good; we love change! (repeat as needed)
