Technology Dark Ages?

I have, yet again, got behind on blogging. So many things to blog about, so little time to blog. My hope is to catch up soon. Maybe not.

One of my co-workers suggested that it was because I have to sign on to a computer to blog, instead of a phone. I will admit it.... I am in the dark ages still. My phone is for calls only. I have text messaging turned off (yes, I do mean turned off. If one is sent to me it goes into the land of lost texts.). I also cannot access the internet from my phone. The only purpose my phone has is receiving and making calls and voice mail. Like I said, I am in the dark ages.

Maybe if I had the internet on my phone, and a decent keyboard, I would be compelled to blog more. Probably not. There is too much to do most days and I would never get around to it.

My parents recently got iPhones and my Dad is convinced that we need them as well. I am just not sure I want to be that connected. I do have an iPod and that is almost too much technology for me. We do not have video gaming systems either (besides a PSP) and I cannot see us getting them anytime soon. The Wii is loads of fun, but I do not want one. I love playing the Wii when at someone's home, but I only like it in group settings. Playing with friends or family is a blast and I look forward to game nights including a Wii (or board games). I would not play with a gaming system on a daily, or even weekly basis, by myself and John does not have time for videogames. I know a lot of people that have them and most play them often. That is pretty cool, it is just not us right now.

Even the computer that I type on is from the early 2000's. For some reason, technoloy stresses me out. I am cool with other people enjoying it and I am glad they do because they can help me out when I get something new.

I might have to eat my words, but presently I am going to remain a technodinosour.

i don't have an iphone either, but mostly because i think the data plan is too expensive, and i prefer verizon over ATT :)

I think I will use that as my excuse as well. :)

Nope we don't use our phones for internet connectivity either - it's just too much...
