Technology

The Seattle Smith's are now proud owners of the iPad2.  This toy has kept us up for hours on end and we've had more fun just playing on this gadget that we ever imagined.  The saddest thing is how many times I have tried to FaceTime with my fellow friends and family members with iPhones ... and you have to be on WiFi, which is really lame.  BUT, I finally got to with Arrie, Abby, Mollie, and Gaylen!!  Pretty amazing considering it feels like I am right there with them.  Abby answered in the dark, in bed, with her earpiece in, quite sexy if you ask me!


I maybe should be embarrassed to admit this, but I didn't grow up playing Scrabble.  I seriously played in twice in my younger (and older) years!  AND, I will say, Words with Friends has taken over my life.  I play it during all my spare time in doctors offices, while watching reality TV, in bed, etc..  Although, this app is so beyond glitchy on my current Droid phone, which brings me to my next decision.  I upgraded from the Blackberry to the Android operating system, which I have L.O.V.E.D!!  But, knowing how my version of the Droid is older (got it for a lovely price tag of free!), I have an upgrade available (and have for many months now), certain things drive me bonkers on the Eris (like dialing people), and I think it's time for an upgrade.  


Should I take the plunge and get the iPhone4 now that it is available on Verizon??  AND, that would mean I get to play Words with Friends without having to check every few minutes to see if someone played since I don't get a notification for it.  That seems like a perfectly good reason in itself :)


What is your recommendation!
Are you addicted to the iPhone and does it get a 10 out of 10?

I LOVE my iPhone and LOVE Words With Friends, they are both so addicting! However, I did laugh that a big reason for getting the iPhone is to be notified when its your turn. So funny!

I know I will have a lot against me when I say this, but my boyfriend is pretty much a technology guru. He had the I phone for years, and converted over to the HTC EVO. he said it was the best decision he ever made and doesn't look back. I know I phone is all about the "apps" but people over look the fact that Droid has JUST as many!!!
( and I proudly own an Apple I pod, and macbook as my bf has the I pad) but when it comes to phones he says ANDROID! :)

We are so behind on technology no Iphone, Ipad, or even a DVR. We need to get with it. I would love an Ipad!! Sounds like fun.

I don't have an iphone (I have the HTC Evo) so I'm not any fun there but I do love Words With Friends! My WWF doesn't notify me when it's my turn either. It did at first but doesn't anymore, I think it's an app issue and not a phone issue.

Ashley McWhorter said...

Yes, yes, yes!!! We have Verizon and I have the iphone4! LOVE it!!!!!!!!!

leigh ashley said...

I love my iPad too! Congrats on your purchase! You can get notifications on your iPad with WWF... go to settings, notifications, WWF app and then turn the alerts on. That's how I did it anyway! :)

Candace said...

Oh I love my ipad and I am waiting to upgrade to the iphone myself. i say go for it!

Kristin said...

My hubby wants an ipad so bad, but it's just not in the budget right now unfortunately. How exciting that you got one!

Tanvi said...

I am with you on the scrabble part. While every one around me swears having played it always, I always wonder when was that as we grew up together in a boarding school!

For the technology part, I am too far behind! I am yet to buy a blackberry :(((

Frances said...

i love the iphone- highly recommend! it makes staying in touch so much easier by using face time or even words with friends which i have multiple games going daily with friends and fam back home!!

Raven said...

I want the iPad2. I NEED the iPad2. So glad to hear your love it but not glad to hear it keeps you up at night. I already have enough problem sleeping!

And I say go for the iPhone. Mac rules :)

Sarah said...

I looooooooooove my iPhone, love it! I had the original and got the 4 last year....I really don't know what I would do without it.....there is an app for everything! I will never go back, don't know how you could..... :)

Kelly said...

YES!!! The iphone is uh-mazing. I NEVER thought I would be so obsessed with a phone. It is night and day from my Blackberry :-P We got an iPad a month ago and love it! (on it now :-)) I have a Skype app on my iphone that I use to Skype with my sister when I don't have my computer. And I love WWF too-- I'm kellykmku if you want to play!

Carol {Everyday Delights} said...

Ohhh I so want an ipad! I think it would be awesome for trip!

Kelly Marie said...

iPhone 4 is seriously the best thing in the world. Just saying. I've had an iPhone for about a year and a half and Ry got me the iPhone 4 for Christmas. I'm obsessed STILL. oh and my Words with Friends name is KellyMPorter if you want to play!

Bonnie said...

I have the iPhone 4 on Verizon, and I LOVELOVELOVE it. It's fantastic. I give it at 9.5 out of 10 simply because of the email. It's pretty awesome. I wouldn't trade it for the world. You should definitely take the plunge.

I LOVE my iPhone! You should definitely get one! And hopefully I'll own an iPad soon too.

{Selma} Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

Oh, I'd love to have an iPad. So jealous, and I love my iPhone. Funny thing though is I am not a MAC person...but I would never trade my iPhone for anything else.

Meredith said...

YES get the iPhone, my phone broke so I got the iphone last month on Verizon and I am now addicted to Words with Friends.

Annie said...

I love my iPad2 as well....

I havent jumped on the words with friends bandwagon....i hesitate because i fear that i would never get anything done....would I?!

lisa elizabeth said...

I never played scrabble either. I was always embarrassed to admit it.

iPhone? I say DOT IT!!!! I wish Sprint had the iPhone available. I'd get it in a heartbeat.

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

I've been thinking for a while about getting Hubby an iPad (then I would get to play with it too ;-)), what do you love about it?? and we have Sprint, which does not carry the iPhone, I still have a Blackberry... while annoying sometimes, much better than my last phone :) I'm afraid to try an iPhone bc then I might love it and want one ;) but I believe that I would also have an crazy obsession with words with friends too :) Hubby and I used to play Boggle online, a-ddicting! Dorks ;) Have you ever played?? (sorry for the long rambling comment :))

Erika Peterson said...

I want an iPhone SO BAD. And I'm half embarrassed, half proud that I still use a Razr. I feel like Zach Morris...

Jamie said...

The Chef Family just purchased an ipad 2 today. Must be a west coast thing right now. We literally drove all over town, with two girls in tow, trying to hunt one down. Even the apple store didn't have any. Finally Kyle found one at a Target store 25 minutes away. He jumped in the car as quickly as he could because they wouldn't hold it for him. Yes, they are pretty neat! Did you get one of the cool magnetic covers for it too?

LG said...

Welcome to the (apple) family! Now you see why I an obsessed! We have iPhone 4s and love them! My hubby is obsessed with WWF too! Wait till July if you can for the iPhone 5!

Stephanie Doyle said...

I can't wait to join the Ipad world... mine is supposed to arrive tomorrow!:)

Dana said...

I am wondering the same thing. I am overdue for an upgrade on my blackberry and I have been eyeing the Droid X but now wondering if I shouldn't go with the Iphone. So many choices!
