    With A new gadget. I scoffed at smart phones, 2 years later, living realistically I've upgraded from A simple cell phone, to A basic smart phone to A bit better one that my carrier offers. I have an LG esteem, not the best for some, great for A redneck.
    I had A Toshiba laptop, then got an iPad cheap. Then the laptop went to parts heaven and all I used was the iPad.
    It was so versatile for me that I got the 3gen. Looked at the 2 and in my layman's opinion it was lacking so I stuck it out for another 10 mos.
    I am pleased. Here to learn, searched other forums and chose this one.
    Some of my friends call me A high tek red nek. They NEVER thought an old guy like me had some bit of sense for this stuff. I'm by far flashy with these tools, yet not dumb.
    Thanks,

    I know the feeling. My son showed me his iPhone 3GS, and although I was suitably impressed, I hung on to the idea that a phone is a phone and stuck with my very unsmart phone. Then one day it fell apart and I thought "Why not?". Two years in, I use my iPhone 4 for everything except making calls, although I've been known to do that occasionally.

    I couldn't imagine life without my iDevices.
