Here’s a conversation that I had over Thanksgiving:
- My 16-year-old cousin: I broke my phone.
- Me: I will give you an iPhone 5s if you agree to one condition.
- Young cousin: Deal.
- Me: I’m also going to send you a three-pound bronze plaque that says “Donated by the world’s best uncle/cousin” and you need to superglue the phone to the plaque and carry both with you at all times.
- Young cousin: That’s fine.
And then I had to send my old iPhone 4S to her little sister… So now I am firmly committed to the Samsung Note 3 and Galaxy Gear geek watch. The Note 3 is good for reading Amazon Kindle books but it is painful to use as a camera or phone and there are a lot of software freezes.
