Consumerism strikes

Okay. So Steve Jobs announced a drop in iPhone prices, so, no surprise, we finally got sucked in.

Initial report, as we attempted to initialize, was 5-7 days to get our “other” landline switched.

I expect The Guru will find a way to shortcut that!

    Who better than you two to use this cool technology?

    And now, MM, we can call you on your iPhone for “free” (what a joke, at $2/day)!

    I read the comments and I was thinking, “who the heck is ‘MM’?” Is it Doc Burns’s brother? Or Mickey Mouse? No. It is me. So used to being KW! 🙂

    Have to also say that I think it’s easier to transition cell phone to cell phone than landline to cell phone. I think I remember reading that if you were transitioning a landline it would take longer. I *think* that’s what y’all are doing. Not trying to be a know-it-all!!! Kee-reist, far be it from me! 🙂 🙂

    I went *years* without giving out my cell number. At first, because it wasn’t a viable phone for picking up calls (or maybe it was just that I didn’t know how to do it). With later phones, I gave it out sparingly. There’s nothing like having your phone ring when you are trying to merge onto the freeway or something. I can ignore phones but it’s hard with the conditioning I have of growing up in the 50s when phones were still *relatively* new for the middle class type person.
