Technically Speaking, I’m Feeling Social
So… I said I wouldn’t get a Kindle Fire because I prefer 3G over wi-fi. But I now own a kindle fire. I’m foiled when I want to do internet things while traveling, and am I’m now considering paying the extra money to make my Blackberry a mobile hotspot. What is happening?
I’ll tell you what’s happening. All the technology and social media I’ve avoided is sneaking into my life. And by sneaking, I mean invited in like a freaking vampire on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
I’m currently being sucked dry by Twitter. I said I’d never join twitter. I figured I’d cave and re-join Facebook before I joined twitter. And yet I now have an account. But I don’t know how to use that shit. I get hashtags, which any idiot could figure out. However, it definitely took me 15 min to figure out how to follow someone.
And of course, on thee kindle fire, I don’t get everything all the time, so I had to add this shit to my phone too. Soon I’ll be like the husband, constantly checking my phone. But I will never go full twitter freak. Read: I will never follow Kim Kardashian on twitter.
I may use my kindle for everything on top of books, but I do still use it to read books and newspapers too. So I’m still me a little bit right?
I’m just going to choose to focus on the positive and be glad that I can keep up with all the blogs I like to read much easier with my kindle.
Well, I’m off to download another free android app onto my kindle. Lord help me.
