    Smart phone - dumb user, some might say :lol3

    I dunno. Battery life sucks, but it's pretty handy being able to carry around a service manual, some books, spare gps and misc stuff w/o extra weight.

    Damn. Just seeing that without even clicking means I will be hearing it in my head all day. I might have to bust out the actual album just to change tracks.

    You realize that this won't work for long. As networks get updated the old ones will actually be shut down.
    A good friend of mine is a higherup at blackberry. We were having dinner at his place a few weeks back and he explained to me that people are going to be pissed soon when a lot of the old fliphones stop working because the operating network they are on will be shut down. You'll still be able to buy new flip phones that will work. Just all the old ones will randomly stop working.


    (Note that I understand nearly none of the technical wording and reasons for this. Just passing along what I was told by someone way smarter than me on the subject)

    While I like being drunk and dirty well enough, the head stoved in part never sounded all that cool to me.

    Good thing old Billie didn't have his fingers in the socket. Or, maybe that was why he was so desparate.

    The music was hot but his baby was not.

    Obviously, I wore out several eight tracks of that album. From the first year I graduated high school before deciding to do 12th grade after all.

    I caved to the smartphone thing last April. Was holding out strong with my waterproof, bombproof Casio til it randomly stopped working.

    Like Anders said, having service manuals, PDF files and GPS on-hand is pretty sweet. And it takes amazing pics.

    My phones are work-provided and paid for. We were a BlackBerry outfit with a complete management system for the higher-ups in the board. If they broke, lost or had their BB stolen we could wipe it remotely and reload a new one to be just like the old one. What a fucking PITA that shit was! :rolleyes
    The tech department fought back to choose whatever we wanted and they finally let us. We chose to go Android and never looked back. I still have all my previous phones and they all still work. Samsung Galaxy S1, S3, S4 a Blackview BV6000 (fucking indestructible) and now I have an S5. I didn't want an S6 or higher as they are getting too big and the whole bullshit about not having a replaceable battery or a micro SD card slot just irks me. Apple can fuck off and die for all I care.
    But yeah, having access to everything I need within the space of a small hand-held device is gold. I never dreamed of this when I was a kid. The only thing I wish it would do is also be a sat phone. We carry a separate sat phone with us when we travel to remote places for work but it would be cool if it was just integrated into our smartphones.


    I actually miss my StarTac. :deal

    20+ years ago when I worked for NCR we used pagers and I had a Timex Datalink watch that I still have to this day.

    I've always been a tech freak though. Setting myself up for a few chuckles here but whatever. I was probably 11 or 12 in this picture. Check out the Casio calculator watch! :smile6

    I knew a interesting corner had been turned in my career a couple of weeks ago. A young Chinese engineer grabbed my work calculator then took pictures of it to post on Instagram. He was blown away that it is decade older that him and still in use everyday.

    What did he think we were using in the 80's, an abacus? It is an HP41CX with calculus, coordinate geometry and celestial observation plugin program modules. It cost two month's pay in Reagan dollars. You would think it was my slide rule from the kid's reaction.

    I recall those watches! Classmate of mine had one and I wanted one as well :rofl
    Almost managed to save enough $$$ to get one, but never got around to actually buy it.
