I'll admit that I'm embarassingly slow when it comes to adopting new technology. Case in point: I just got an iPhone 4S. Call me lazy but I already had an iPhone 3 & couldn't be bothered to figure out a whole new phone, especially now that I've gotten so good(ish) at texting. And I would have waited for the 5 but I have so many plugs/ports that it felt wasteful to have to buy all new ones. But you say the Samsung Galaxy is where it's at? Fine, the phone-tapping, file-sharing thing is super cool, especially if you have friends with great playlists. And their new ads are super compelling. I want to watch videos while I text, too! Though I question if they're actually trying to create more accidents. Oh, but you over there? BBM is so amazing, right? I know, I know...you could never give that up. And sorry, what's an Android?
I'm confused. All I know is that I love a pretty phone case since they're an inexpensive way to convey your style while protecting your precious. I'm not a big fan of overt insignia so my current keeper is made of simple, clear lucite. These fun little cases are quite fetching, though, esp. that whipsnake number (LOVE), and will protect my poor smartie from the school of hard knocks that is my toddler-filled house. It's a miracle that my phone has survived it all. The iPad on the other hand....
