You may or may not know this already, but I am a certified techie and gadget whore. Yup! The type that has Craigslist bookmarked and wastes a portion of every day trading , selling , and buying some sort of electronics. Basically I'm addicted to novelty. I like new shit!
I find most of my searches are for new phones. On my list, my phone is probably my number one concern. Its basically the hub of my life. I truly hate to talk on the phone so I mostly text and email for communication, and most of my social media , scheduling and whatever else pretty much happens on my phone . So for the last 8 months ( 10 years in gadget time) Ive settled on the ultimate phone in the Samsung Galaxy S2. The best phone I had ever had and trust me I've had every phone worthy of the crown. I had not a reason in the world to change it. It was lightning quick, did everything with relative ease, was easy to hack and put cooked up Roms on and had a huge screen. But as fate would have it, I wanted bigger and better.Wait..... Have you seen the size of my hands?? I thought about the Galaxy S3 but I wasn't too fond of the body shape. So after a couple of days of Craigslist trolling I sold my GS2 for more that I bought it for a couple months ago and acquired a new Samsung Galaxy Note. Basically the same freakin' phone but much bigger. I am happy to announce to you all that I am in love! ( John Legend - Tonight comes on.......best you ever had.......... I am staring at my phone)
But the real meat (comedy) of the story is........ there were 2 days in between where I didn't have a phone at all and had to just grab an old school clam shell phone to get by. Man, I realized just how shallow I have become . I swear I didn't even take it out my pocket in public. I was so embarrassed! Like who gives a fuck really, right? But obviously I did. If a pretty chick came by, no matter what or who I was texting it was immediately over. Not to mention that old school boop boop boop with every key stroke. And sometimes you're pressing the button 3 times for one letter. So a 5 letter word could have up to 15 boooops! Can you imagine a sentence? Do you know how freaking annoying that is! LOL. Well, I am so happy those two days are over. Plus I had no music for my daily commute. Boooo, a big no no! I blacked out so I probably bit off a couple heads in those 48hrs, but as I said I blacked out and dont remember so I can't be held accountable for it ;-)
So where am I going with this......not sure..... I ramble writing. Basically I just wanted to know if your a Phoney too?
I just thought I'd share that tidbit with you. Step up your phone game lol.
A day in the Life of Max Tapper! Till next time.
