You might have gathered that Joe bought me a new iPhone. Yes, I know I already had one but it pays to update the technical stuff. I had been a bit fearful of losing old faithful but decided that I needed to move on and not be scared of things going wrong. I needn't have worried, everything went smoothly once I got the phone home and checked everything out. Ooooh 'phone home' - that sounds familiar.
Prior to visiting the shop I had synced the phone with iTunes (Apple) and established that I was correctly connected to Cloud, I mean it’s a long journey through the skies if it isn’t working properly! Even so, things could have gone wrong, hence the nervousness. However, on the day all worked well. Everything was where it should be and I didn’t have to make any alterations. That Cloud is amazing – and so is technology.
However, I did get one or two things I hadn’t seen before, the most fascinating being a folder with a heart emblem - marked HEALTH. It was a measuring device for how many walking or running steps the phone-owner takes in a day. Wowee, I couldn’t stop looking at it. I walked up and down, in and out, and kept looking at the updated numbers. I remembered the old saying about housewives walking miles (two, I think) just making beds. I didn’t believe it then but I do now. Crikey, all that effort to go into the kitchen to make a cuppa. Unbelievable! I can measure sleep as well but to heck with that. I need my sleep uninterrupted!
These days I don’t do much exercising so imagine my surprise when I chased the squirrel (nearly caught him, by the way) and found myself running. Yes, actually RUNNING. Something I never, ever do. I couldn’t believe it when I checked the phone and found I’d run just over a kilometer. Me? I’ll be running the marathon before I know it. NOT!
The phone’s camera is better than the one in the old phone. The pictures are bigger since the view is enlarged. I can take black and white pictures as well as colour and I like being able to choose the desired effect before taking the pic. Now that IS progress, and all that on a simple phone.
I played a few games on the old phone, e.g. Scrabble and the like, so I checked to see if they were still on the new one. They were, thanks to Cloud, but they’re all that much bigger so it will take time to adjust.
The interesting thing about purchasing a new phone is that I still have the old one. Apparently because of that wonderful invention, CLOUD, I didn’t need the SIM card transferred from one to the other. I can’t use the old one as a phone but I can get on the Net and do everything else. Could be useful. Once more I say, technology is amazing!
Joe is a bit of a romantic and as a surprise pressie he produced this box of chocolates. I have never seen such a large box. I got the ruler out and found it was 16 by 14 inches. It’s not every day a gal gets a heart shaped box of chocs of such proportions. Pity there's only one layer!
I can’t wait to get started on the choc sampling and if you’re reading this Joe, I bags the first one.
