I've had a different week. The boys have been up and down. They've been sick and well and sick and well. It's a see saw of sickness and I'm tired. I've lost my usual get up and go. All I want to do is sit on the couch and watch tv and not all of it has been good. I've watched some great premieres this week (Grey's Anatomy had me sobbing). I've watched some mindless tv (4 Weddings) and some really bad tv (Honey Boo Boo). I know, how could I? It was like watching a train wreck. I couldn't look away. I'm still a bit shell shocked from it and I think I may have PTSD from it. Ok, its not that bad but it has been burned into my brain and I must wipe it from my mind.
This past week has also seen a lot of different things in the news. There has been of course the uprisings around the world, but I won't go into that. There was an important vote about when is life called a life in Canada this week (life lost). I will go into that, but at a later date. Last week the new iPhone was rolled out. Yes, for all those that bought a new iPhone just last year, you must line up and get the new right away to keep up with the Jones. Yes, I just said that.
I love watching American Pickers, Storage Wars, Pawn Stars and American Restoration. I love seeing the old things that come up and learning about the history of them. These things were built to last. People took pride in them. They didn't have to go out and get an updated version of it every year. We don't buy couches every year or even dishes or houses, then why do we need to get new phones every year. I know, I know....technology changes and we need to keep up. But what did we do before cell phones? How did we survive? I know, we all had quarters in our pockets to use the pay phone. Or we called people before we went out to meet them. Or we actually had the weekends off from our boss, just saying. Now that we have cell phones we are connected 24/7 and on the go just as much. There is no time to just sit. We are tuned in, but we can never be tuned out.
With the new iPhone's release, I have seen close friends run out and buy the new one. Even though the old one worked just fine. I've also followed a bit about the Samsung/Apple legal battle over their tablets. I've been cheering for Samsung. I know it must be my Blackberry loving heart hoping that someone will take down the big Apple giant. I was upset when Samsung lost the legal battle, but I don't think they've lost the war. I saw the recent Samsung commercial. It didn't just make we smile, but it also made me want one (only if it comes with a full qwerty keyboard though). Watch it and let me know what you think?
Are you getting a new iPhone or are you happy with your cell? What do you think about our commercial, instant gratification society versus making things that last? Come share your opinions with the other java junkies this week.
