Happy Thursday everyone! It seems as if everyone and their mother has been talking about the iPhone lately. Between the new iPhone 5s, 5c, and the new iOS7 upgrade, everyone is hooked on the latest apple technology. Although I have no iPhone experience (I have a flip phone), constantly hearing about this new technology and upgrades got me curious, so I did a little research.
Highlights from my research revealed that the iPhone 5s features a fingerprint detector to recognize that it really is you using your phone. No more need for a password. It is also the first phone in the world with 64-bit architecture. Now, I’m not sure anyone really knows what that means, but it sure sounds good doesn’t it? Another new iPhone is the 5c. Apparently the “C” stands for color, because according to the Apple website, this phone is essentially the iPhone 5, but just looks different. And finally, everyone seems to be freaking out over the iOS7 upgrade. From what I understand, this upgrade makes the look of your iPhone sleeker and simplifies some of the tasks it already performs. Since I obviously don’t know much about what the upgrade entails, check out more info on that here.
Personally I think that iPhones are a little excessive, and these new versions and upgrades only further my belief. Do we truly need to have a finger print detector on a cell phone? Absolutely not. Will people go bonkers thinking that is an essential thing they need? Absolutely yes. My flip phone and I have been going strong for about 4 years now and I don’t plan on letting go anytime soon. I will just sit back and observe as the rest of the world becomes robots and still have the satisfaction of angrily slamming my phone closed at the end of a frustrating conversation.
P.S. Come to Starbucks tonight at 7 p.m. for a free Coyote Armada concert. Also, free food. And stop by the Volunteer Center in the front of Atherton and write down your passion and wear it around all day for Passion Project Indy.
Have a great end of the week and thanks for reading
