Cell Phone Magic
I talked to my son the other day. Big deal, “you say.” Yeah, but he was sitting on the balcony of his hotel in Shanghais China, in his bathrobe and slippers, feet up, sipping tea and admiring the rising sun over the skyline. His clarity on his Blackberry was better than his land line at home. He was halfway around the world and sounded like he was in the next room. This is remarkable, regardless of it’s normalcy today. My first recollection of phone service was a party line shared with 3 other families, one of whom had a phone hogging, chatterbox, obnoxious daughter. You answered the phone based on the number of rings. My first portable phone was smaller than a backpack but not dramatically smaller. Cell phones are one of the few things that guys brag about theirs being the smallest. Bottom line, we take the technology for granted since we are immersed in it. But take a second and consider, is this cool or what!
Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!
