I had an iPod Touch, which I loved and was hopelessly addicted to. But this just has me over the top and I can't keep my hands off it.
Which isn't necessarily a good thing. Trust me.
For one thing, I can now check email and Twitter wherever I am:
- In the car (it was safe -- my husband was driving!
- At Friendly's with the kids, while celebrating my son's 6th birthday (and, yes, I was drinking a giant fribble)
- In the middle of the night after being woken up by some child
It opens things up in some very cool ways, providing flexibility and accessibility, which is great. I now work with a whole group of people across the pond in bonnie ole england-- a five hour time difference -- and it's really easy to be connected. (Hi, guys!) I can even use Skype on the iPhone when there's wifi around, making calls to the UK free and clear.
I love it. But I might need help. Fellow iPhone users, how do you keep yourself from going overboard?
Some of this may also be the ramblings of a new virtual office worker who has a lot to learn. My office is my home, my home is my office.
So here I am at 11:30 at night, in bed with my laptop, catching up on email, managing twitter, blogging. On a Saturday night. Maybe the iPhone isn't the problem?
