Welcome to this week's Friday Feature.
Today, I want to recognize my Android phone as being continually awesome.
As a medical student, I had classmates with smart phones...they were so slick and shiny, so useful for problem-solving on the go, so emblematic of post-modern coolness.
Obviously, I was desperate for one... But, they were expensive. And I was a medical student -- which is to say, broke. Well, broke implies having no money, whereas what I actually had was *negative money*, in the form of tons of med school debt.
As such, I couldn't justify adding an additional $100 on my monthly loan bill for a smart phone. So, I made due with a really dumb phone... no Internet, no texting, a broken antenna, a spotty battery, the whole deal. All the while, I promised myself that as soon as I got a job (started residency), I'd get a smart phone.
Three years pass, and the day finally comes.
I've had my Droid for 10 months now, and I remain continually in awe of all of its features and the myriad ways it has both simplified and enhanced my daily routine.
Having a smart phone...That Will Never Get Old.
