While Apple zombies started riots in both Sydney Australia and Oberhausen Germany, throwing bottles and biting each other, I too ordered a new phone. A Nokia.
Nokia, once leading the way, now an almost-dead company. My new Nokia 100 can’t do anything special. Won’t start a conversation at birthday parties. Won’t make people jealous. Probably looks pathetic in the eyes of many. Will set me back in the pecking order by a mile. No GPS, no Apple Maps (LOL!). Won’t be stolen for sure. And if it is, it will set me back a lousy $25.
Goodbye smartphone, goodbye continuous recharging. Instead of a lousy 16 hours of standby time on average, I get 35 days (yes, thirty-five days) of standby time. Goodbye endless software updates. Goodbye apps tracking me all the time. I can call someone, someone can call me. I can text someone, and someone can text me. End of story.
Have a great weekend!
