So the other "techies" in my family all have the iphone and are waiting with baited breath for the new one. Yesterday we're all together and we get into the topic of phones, which we always do. My brother in law starts talking about how he rarely puts the phone to his ear. When i asked him to explain what he meant he says, "between texting, meebo, facebook and twitter, I almost never make a phone, hence why when people ask, I can ALWAYS say that Att works for me because I never HAVE TO MAKE A PHONE CALL!!! " I thought it was hilarious. Later in the day, my 6 year old nephew picks up my sister's iphone, turns it on and starts playing his favorite game. The same brother in law says, "this is why an iphone or any apple product, for that matter, will never be obsolete, bc people of all ages can pick it up, press the button and navigate and USE it, and you can't say that about your Android." I looked at him and said, "i have the same shiny icons on my screen too, it's not rocket science." But I do have to admit, i am ridiculously jealous of their battery life and to an extent, his "ease of use" comment is valid, once you move beyond pressing on an icon to use an application.
