In my opinion this week there’s really only one thing worth talking about in the wonderful world of technology and that is the iPhone 5. The million dollar question of the day (or so it seems as I have been bombarded with emails asking if I am getting it and do I think it is worth it) is whether or not you’ll be getting one.
The answer I thought would be extremely simple for myself and my wife as we’ve been waiting for some time for this. This is not to mention how our kids have waited as well seeing that we were going to give our iPhone 4’s to them when we got the new iPhone 5. We both decided to have some discipline and skip the iPhone 4S and stick with our iPhone 4 through the most recent release.
To be honest, skipping a generation wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be but we were definitely ready for the 5! But now after seeing the 5 and the changes or upgrades, outside of always feeling like I want the most recent and updated version of anything Apple and knowing I will now have a phone that is 2 generations behind, I am not sure the 5 was all that I expected. I know the changing of the cord was definitely not on my praise list of changes. I always enjoyed that Apple stayed with the same cord for everything and that was different from what everyone did with the need to buy a different cord for each device you may have.
There you have it, the decision on to get the 5 or not is not as easy as I thought it would be. For my wife she doesn’t think she will, for me I want to say that I would not but then I know myself too well and know that just not having the latest is working on this early adopter of technology.
So what about you? What are you the most excited about?
