This phone will self destruct in ten seconds

I recently got a fairly whiz bang new mobile phone for work. I have had an older Nokia for years and really like it for its simplicity and intuitive understanding of how it works. I got the new phone so that I have a camera for visits to new sites. I got a whole lot more as well, most of which I have not figured out.

My daughter on the other hand had it figured out within five minutes. She had changed the boring ring tone to one she sang, changed the start up photo and wallpaper, recorded some videos and was hassling me to download some games. No peace for the wicked.

I laughed looking at this cartoon, thinking that I am more like an old person than a young person when it comes to technology. In the back of my mind there is always the worry that the phone will self destruct if I press certain combination of buttons.

Thanks Gizmodo

I hear ya with the phone business. My girl does the same thing. On any given day, I never know if it's MY Phone ringing, because she changes the ring tone.

Sign of age there when the kids are teaching you how to use the intuitive controls.

This design is steller! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved
to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Excellent job.
I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
Too cool!
