On the nature of old things …

Here are some assorted points that will hopefully come together once I am finished writing them.

  • My mobile – Sony Ericsson P910 – looks very old and much used.
  • I got it second hand as a temporary solution.  I have feeling like it was three month ago or so.
  • Via “On this day” section of the sidebar, I am reminded of this post.
  • The biggest problem with this mobile was the broken keyboard.  A few month ago, I took it off. Now I use virtual keyboard via touch screen.
  • The second biggest problem with this phone that I had, was stylus.  I had only one and I lost it.  For a few month now I’m using just my finger.
  • I’ve heard about “temporary being the most permanent”.
  • A Polish colleague of mine once noted  that most people in Poland drive  very old cars. “A car of 25 years old is like brand new“, – he said.  He was only half joking.
  • I am looking for a new mobile phone to buy. I am not in a hurry.
  • Google Android stuff sounds very cool, and it will have a lot of future, and I will have one of those.  But they aren’t available yet.
  • iPhone is available.
  • So is BlackBerry.
  • I am not in a hurry.  By the time I will make my mind and decide to do something about my phone, probably Androids will be all over the place.

Yes, I am very slow sometimes.  But even if I am taken out of equation, like with those cars in Poland, there is one argument, which is very very simple, but is very very hard to overcome – “It works“.
