PERSONALLY: out of the stone age



First of all... WOW! I have been very MIA on the Tulaloo Blog recently!! No excuse other than wedding season and sunny weather. I'm finishing up the last of the fall weddings (did I mention I love fall weddings?) and trying to spend as much time enjoying the steamy summer weather as possible before I need to dive headfirst into the Holiday rush for notecards and then Spring weddings. Captain, Chunk and I have been spending our days picking blueberries here and running through the sprinkler while The Mister sweats through his Kevlar at work. But I veer off of my intended topic...

The Mister and I finally joined the modern world and got ourselves a pair of iPhones! We are pretty frugal, and have always had whatever low end phone was being given away free with a contract. But after he told his buddies to stop texting him because it cost him money every time, they began texting him as much as possible just to be obnoxious. It is a guy thing. So, between that and the sad shape our old flip phones were in, we decided it was time to do a little phone shopping. It was a humbling experience since the salesmen looked at us like we were cave people when we explained that neither of us had ever sent a text message and fumbled with the various touch screens and keyboards. But we sorted it all out and were amazed when we realized that we could get the old iphone 3G for the same price as the so-so phone we saw at Sprint.

Of course, I don't need to tell you this since I am the last person on earth to use an iphone, but THESE THINGS ARE AMAZING!! They are so much more user friendly than the competitors versions, and have an app for everything. Texting makes it so much easier to talk the The Mister when he is at work (which is all the time). And I love being able to access my work email at all times. But my favorite little perk is probably the ability to read books on it. I use Stanza for my eReader, and it is just great.

And now I am curious...what is your favorite iPhone app?

Woo hoo!

No app ideas from me because I don't have an iPhone. Yet.

I keep trying to drop hints that my current phone is failing and I may need a new one soon. By then, you'll be able to give me advice :)

If I could I would. I love the iphone! I love Apple and that has a big part in my love. I'd get one though we'd have to change carriers and both are not willing to do that right now. There are lots of great apps for business you can get on the iphone which I'm sure you will grow to love! Congratz'!
