First of all, I want to apologize. Right now. I’m sorry. Please don’t think too badly of me.
For what am I apologizing, you might ask?
Go ahead, ask away!
Oh. You are asking. Sorry. Again.
Well, you know I got this new iPhone, right? And you know how I haven’t been too impressed with it as a phone so far, right?
Till now. It’s starting to win me over because my calls (as few and far between as they are) are sounding just fine now and are not being dropped. For three days now. Because I got a case for it. Somehow, putting a case on my iPhone has made it toe the line. To pay attention. To send and receive properly, loud and clear and without static and every single time since Tuesday.
So I may not have to go in to my local Apple store and kick up a fuss. This pleases me – and also those people who have suffered with me, either because of crappy call quality while talking to me on the phone or because I have whined at them since I got the phone (PG, DD, and my very patient mother).
All of which is lovely, but I’m not apologizing for that.
No, what I’m sorry about is that because I am so enamoured of the iPhone as a toy/ entertainment centre/ way to keep me off the streets that I have found and downloaded the WordPress app. Now I can update my blog from my phone! So exciting!! But also so prone to typing errors.
The problem is that I’m not super-proficient at touch screen typibg – typing – yet, and even though it autocorrects as I go along, it frequently “corrects” wrongly. And I, of course, am mostly oblivious to this. I’m just happy to be texting! And the iPhone’s screen is a lot smaller than my laptop’s screen, so it’s hard to efficiently edit five or six hundred words.
But I’ll lean – I mean learn. And in the meantime, I must apologize if there are spelling or punctuation mistakes. It’s not that I’m a lousy speller or – uh – punctuator, it’s just that I’m new to posting and editing my work from my mobile.
So this post was my first one done entirely on my oPhone – oops! I mean iPhone. Now. Tell me: what do you think? How’s my spelling? My spacing? My punctuation? How do I look to you?
(And I really hope that I don’t look fat…)
