Remember when I was floundering about, asking for advice on which phone I should upgrade to? I just know that you've been dying to know what I choose. Pacing the floor, biting your nails, wondering WHAT ON EARTH is taking me so long to tell you?
Oh...you weren't? You were just going about life normally, without a second thought to which phone I chose? Well, hrmph. Fine then. But I'm gonna tell you anyway.
I debated, I fretted, I weighed this option and that option and this feature and that feature and I asked Twitter, Google, Facebook and my gynecologist for their opinions. (Okay, fine. I'm kidding about the last one. Maybe.)
My baby bro nailed it: "4S. Go big or go home." My next baby bro (iPhone hater that he is) taunted me: "Droid." (He doesn't know what he's missing.) My big bro let me down and didn't help out his baby sister a bit. Not a peep from him. See if I ever ask for his advice again.
In the end...it was Siri that won me over. Siri, the voice command assistant that lives inside my iPhone 4S. She's a doll. Quite hilarious, actually. She'll offer up the meaning of life:
She's witty with a response when I tell her I love her:
Sometimes, she gets confused about what I'm asking her...must be my MinneSOOOOOta accent:
But in the end, she's a nice little helper to have in my pocket.
The camera? LIGHTYEARS better than my old 3G camera. And...AND?! I can finally take video with my new phone! Oh, the memories I'm capturing (please hold...video uploading to YouTube of Baby Girl singing...).
I am entirely pleased with my 4S...in my opinion, VERY worth the extra cashola (50 bucks, I think is what the difference ended up being!)
So there, now you can rest easy, stop pacing, and quit biting your nails. Oh, that's right. YOU WEREN'T.
(Just a quick reminder...will you vote for my SIL in the "Heroic Mom" contest? She deserves this for so many reasons and I would LOVE to hand that check over to her! Our lead isn't anywhere near as large as it was, so I really, really appreciate you taking the time to vote! Thank you!)
