Aloha Friday: Phone Intelligence

At work yesterday, the topic of smart phones came up.  While I’m a very techy kind of person (as someone called TechyDad should be), I’ll admit to being a bit of a luddite when it comes to my cell phone.  When I get a new phone, I’m invariably asked “What do you want your phone to do?”  My answer is always “Make calls.”

This isn’t to say that I don’t appreciate the utility of other features in a cell phone.  Last year, we signed up for unlimited texting and it’s drastically changed how we handle social media.  A twitpic or tweet from the road would have been unthinkable when we were being charged for each text message we sent out.  Now, they’re commonplace.  Still, for the moment at least, we have data blocked on our phones.  (To prevent any accidental connections and charges.)

My Aloha Friday question for today is: Do you have a smart phone?  What do you use your phone for (besides making calls)?

Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the McLinky there if you are participating.
