    I have a confession to make. I recently gifted my mom with a new cell phone. It was small, cute, and had many features that required the use of a “data plan.” I thought about keeping the phone for myself, but instead, I sent it north to mom. I also called the phone company and asked them to turn off the internet capabilities (since I don’t use the internet on my phone, I knew she wouldn’t use the internet on her phone). Now, I see your blog entry and I’m feeling a bit silly. I take three steps foward; then one step backwards! Nonetheless, I am still a growing techy.

    i’m not so sure about that being a step back, the idea of being constantly connected doesn’t sit well with some people and i don’t blame them one bit. i like the option of checking my work mail from my phone or reading blogs, but i don’t feel compelled to do so just because i can. i have friends that would get addicted to doing so if it was accessible to them. also, some appreciate the tech on the big screen and a phone sometimes seems like a cheap immitation of the real experience. lastly (becauase i’m on a roll), so phones just don’t have the capabilities to really make it worth it.
