tech savvy

Tech Savvy.  Well, if you’ve known me for any amount of time at all, you know those are two words you never use to describe me.  Why else do you think I married a techy guru?  (other than the fact that he is in every way completely amazing?)


I’ve always resisted advancements in technology.  I don’t like change, never have.  I probably would have protested the wheel if I’d been there.  My cell phone is not a smart phone.  It does the 3 things I need it to do:  make/receive phone calls, send/receive text messages, and wake me up in the morning.  It’s the best phone ever.  I love it.  You can even read more about it in my post let’s twist again. But my dear sweet Nokia Twist is starting to show signs of old age.  It’s spazzing out just a little more often.  It’s making a squeaking noise every time I open it.  I’m just not sure how much time she’s got left.

Enter the iPod Touch.  Trey bought one a couple months ago as a tool to use in helping build a mobile website (he needed to make sure the site worked equally well for Androids as well as iPhones).  Once the site was finished, he wiped it clean and gave it to me to mess with.  I never saw the convenience of a smartphone (or similar device).  All I knew was that Trey’s buzzed constantly with texts and emails and notifications (oh my!) and I didn’t want all that hassel.  All that interuption.  All that contact.

Little by little, it’s winning me over.  The first time I realized I could clear all my facebook notifications and check my email with the touch of a button and without getting trapped in front of the computer for hours, I was hooked.  And I must say, I went a little crazy.  I downloaded apps – Words with Friends, Hangin with Friends, Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, a bajillion books, (which I’ll be blogging about in the near future)…and a whole slew of other stuff.  And then, in what can only be described as some sort of fit, I got a Twitter account.

That’s right – it’s the news you’ve all been waiting for:  you can now follow moreforLeslie on Twitter.  Follow me :)

  1. I LOVE how you’re embracing technology! Go you. I wish I had a camera to show you Trey’s face when he found out you had a Twitter account. “Shocked” would be the understatement of the century.

    When the poor Twist finally dies you’re going to need to draft a eulogy for it… That will be a sad day in history.

  2. Awesome! I am the same way. I have a dumb phone and never wanted a smarter one. But I am starting to see the benefits of at least having a tablet, if not the phone. Way to inspire me honey! ♥

  3. What a shameless plug to “follow” you on “Twitter.” And, I, ma’am, will not! :) Miss you, Muffin!

  4. Seriously, I didn’t believe Ayesha when she said you joined Twitter. Don’t know if I was more in disbelief because you didn’t tell me first or what. :)
