I am trying to work out at the gym today. Fast walking on the treadmill is my feeble attempt at staying healthy & maintaining my weight. It’s really difficult to get yourself to put in a decent workout when you have a dull headache nagging at you all morning. Drinking plenty of cold water helps. Today I’m just dragging my feet, not feeling motivated to do much but grab a hot cup of coffee (or three). Well, at least I stumbled upon this little gem while I was looking for a new mobile phone background wallpaper:
I found this wallpaper on the LINE DECO – Wallpapers & Icons (by Camp Mobile) smartphone App. It really fits my style & says it all. Cheers!

Today’s song of the day:

Everybody goes through this. Whether you have an iPhoneBlack Berry, or an Android phone. This has happened to ALL OF US. The Cell Phone Syndrome.

When you bring home your shiny new “toy” for the first time, it’s got that new shine look & feel (kind of like that “new car” smell).  Most of us don’t even bother flipping through the 50-page instruction booklet.  We just idle the day away, curiously tapping away on the touch-screen, carefully inspecting every menu icon.  We just can’t wait to add our MP3’s, cool background wallpapers, & that cool unique ringtone (that nobody else has).

If you have a Smart phone / PDA phone, you’ll be wasting spending most of your time filling your phone with all the cool apps your friends have (& more).

Once you’ve figured out how to manipulate your shiny new plaything, you will soon be experiencing the Cell Phone Syndrome (a.k.a. CPS).  As a result, these are the 2 most common symptoms of CPS:

  • When you are waiting in line at a store, waiting at a restaurant, or waiting for an appointment, you will inadvertently pick up your phone & start playing with it.
  • When you are with a group of friends, one person will take out their cell phone to use, & one-by-one everyone will follow suit & take out their own cell phones to use.

It’s a vicious cycle…one which has slowly taken over our society & has erased all forms of social, verbal interaction along with eye contact.  Long gone are the days of face-to-face human conversation, just but once a fleeting memory in the fabric of our lives.  (Also, no, I do not count web-chatting a form of conversation because you are still using an electronic device.)
