Now, for those of you who may not know me I am a bit of a luddite when it comes to mobile phones (cell phones). I've never felt the need to own a mobile phone and had no desire to have the latest and greatest models. Although I have owned mobile phones for the last few years they have always been hand-me-downs from my wife when she upgraded her accounts. I was always on whatever was the bare minimum plan and rarely used the phone except to occasionally call my wife if my train was running late. I basically only know how to make a call and press the button to answer a call. I have never sent a text message in my life.
I get home this afternoon to find that my wife has upgraded her business account and got herself an iPhone! And she got me one too! She hadn't told me she was planning to do this so it was a big surprise.
The iPhone has a camera and an iPod rolled into it. This is really useful for me as I've never owned an MP3 player and will now be able to download my favourite gaming podcasts and listen to them on the train. I am quite giddy with excitement at exploring the features of this piece of technology. Today was indeed a momentous day in history.
Oh yeah, and some guy called Barack Obama was inaugurated as the 44th President of the United States of America in the early hours of this morning Australia time.
