Ok I can now write blog posts on my phone even though my computer is sitting five feet away. That's progress for you!
Seriously though, as much as I might like to laugh at our growing dependance on technology there's a point at which you simply have to thank God for giving us a better way to find our way around strange cities. I mean, seriously, a map containing rated restaurant reviews that can call A A A when your car breaks down and contains a star chart so you have something to do while you wait (or you could just play Angry Birds like everyone else).
(Honestly, it was the star chart that sold me. This phone now qualifies as camping gear and is therefore more awesome than any mere texting platform could be.)
