The Dust & The Screaming, The Yuppies Networking

For a couple of years now, I've owned a Blackberry.

I liked my Blackberry. The keyboard was easy as hell to use, it did what I needed it to, and the whole damn device was a big step up from my l'il flip phone.
 
People often asked why I didn't get an iPhone. Well, 2 reasons. My ex picked out my phone because he wanted me to have the same one as him ('bout 2 days before we split - how's that for matching? Ha!). And second, for the life of me I could not type on a touchscreen.


I have never ever understood the iPhone snobbery. I get it - you dig your phone. Good, that's fan-damn-tastic! But I have actually heard people say that they refuse to hang out with anyone who uses anything that isn't an iPhone.

Really? It's a phone. A phone. Used for work and social stuff, yes... but still a phone.

It isn't even the coolest phone. Come on now.



And now it is about time for my upgrade, and I'm planning to switch over to Android -the Samsung Galaxy Nexus that's coming soon. It looks fun. I like fun.




If that falls through for any reason - hell, maybe I'll go iPhone. Who knows, who cares? (Again, let me re-iterate... it is a phone.)

But I'll never ever become a phone snob. Because you people with your phone snobbery make me wish to start punchin' some throats.


A bitch with an effective AngryBitchFace, I may be.

But a phone snob? No way. Not ever.

And if you no longer wanna be friends with me and my current iPhone-less ways, you could always ask Siri to find you some new ones.

I'll be over here, with my Ice Cream Sammich.

Well put. I like (ya, like. not love) my iPhone, but to alienate people because of a phone? I'm not likeable enough to be that picky...

AngryBitchFace is hot.

Galaxy Nexus is a BEAST! Please accept my never ending jealousy.

Until iPhone5 comes out.

For me, if the phone works and does what you need it to... then it's good. Hell, my old flip phone still works if I ever need it.

Kris said...

Justin - yeah, the new one is supposed to be pretty good! And I don't dislike iPhones at ALL.

So your iPhone can be friends with my Android. :)

You know what's funny.. It was just released today that the android has just over half the world market. So by buying a galaxy, you are becoming part of the new phone snobbery.

I love apple and all its products and I will sing its praises to anyone who will listen. However, I will also say that iphone is the perfect phone -FOR ME. It may not be the perfect phone for you.. But my whole house is apple, so my phone works with my mac, my ipad and my apple tv... But if you don't utilize all the cool syncing features and what not, its a very limiting phone. I can't view flash which limits the amount of porn sites I can go to..

So, I'll still text you, no matter what phone you have.

Hey now - buying an Android doesn't make me a snob, and neither would buying an iPhone. The snobbery comes from people who look down on folks who use anything other than iPhone.

I use a PC and have a Mac, too. So... Android seems to make sense. And yes you will still text me. You have no choice.

I feel the same damn way, and shit. I frickin' hate typing on touch screens. Call me old and give me actual keys to push, I guarantee I'm just as fast and accurate as you are, the first time.

And, don't we call these things phones cause they're phones? I am quite sure that being a phone is like about the 6th highest priority now on these "personal access communication multimedia entertain me constantly devices".

I have a phone. It works well as a phone, I can send and receive text and pix messages, it takes a decent picture and I can check my email on it. It also has pretty good speakers for when I want to listen to one of the 1700+ songs I have on it. That's all I need. If I want to do anything else I go to my COMPUTER thing.

Do I really need to watch a movie on a 3 inch screen wherever I go? No, I really don't. I can wait till I get home to my really kickass TV, Blu-ray, Surround Sound system that I have assembled to do that kind of thing.

Well thanks for letting go off on a rant in your box (Oh Yesth!). You seemed to have touched my nerve with this post, I hope it was good for you too.

Finally, I was gonna right click and save AngryBitchFace but then I thought again and went for Zack Morris instead.

Kris said...

Hahahaha... Zack Morris always wins over AngryBitchFace Kris.

Zack Morris was a poseur - trying to emulate one of the original 1 percenters ;) -> http://tinyurl.com/7v9xct8

Would you care for Will Ferrell's extremely portable phone?

Wil: I challenge you to a duel — your push button device vs. my Swype keyboard. May the fastest man win... uh... bragging rights? And a beer.

Kris said...

SuperKeith - Bahaha, love that.

Chino - So NOW I know who posts as Chino! HA! And I'm tryin' that Swype thing... You showed me before, you go stupid fast on that thing...

Mike D. said...

I have a Blackberry I almost never use. I also think you deleted me from bbm.

Wil said...

Chino, that was actually pointed at Kris cause I'm blonde and she used to be. I do admit that I have seen peeps on that swipe thing and that is just amazing.

I switched from BB to Iphone about two years ago. They both have their good and bad features. I miss the hell out of my BBM. I switched because I travel a lot and like being able to carry only one device. I'm never witout an Ipod as I'm a huge music geek. The biggest difference for me is in the quality of after purchase service. When I had problems with my BB they wanted this fee, that fee, the other fee, send to China for 8 weeks and my left testicle to fix the problem. I recently had an issue with my Iphone. It ran out of warranty a year ago. I took it to Apple expecting to pay through the nose to fix it BUT they just gave me a brand new phone telling me I would be better of in the long run. I was shocked to say the least. Like I said the smartphones all have good and bad qualities but Apple's service blows the others out of the water. If I saw you in the street using a BB I might just talk to you though

Kris said...

Mike - I didn't think you owned a phone, when did I have you on BBM?

Wil - Challenge... accepted!

Bill - I hope they gave you a new left testicle, at least.
