More SOLSC at Two Writing Teachers!
Saturday at was at the mall. I had some time before my haircut so I popped into the store which carries my mobile phone service. I was curious about the newest phone that Samsung has out. After all my phone is ancient being two generations behind the 5s.
I am also wondering should I move to the IPhone as I have an IMac and Ipad at home. There are varying points of view on this. The latest from the sales person was that I would be “dumbing myself down” by moving to the IPhone. Interesting, I thought.
With great animation the salesman explained that by getting the Galaxy 5s phone, I would get the Galaxy S5 phone watch. A phone watch? Am I Dick Tracy? Do I need a phone watch? First all it is SO big! SO big.
Meanwhile, the salesman explained how I would no longer need my Fitbit, I would know what my heart rate was at all times and best of all, I could change television stations. Really, a TV remote control on my phone?
I told him that I would need to think on it and walked out. I would like to upgrade for the camera but I just don’t want a phone on my wrist.
It really raises the question about how much technology does one really need? As a Teacher Librarian Technology Specialist (my new title), I get the importance of staying up on the technological advances. However, soon, we may all be implanted with a chip. I want mine to be a chocolate chip.
