Best phones of 2013

At different times, I have wanted one of the 6 best phones of 2013.  You would think they couldn't get any better, but next year is just a week + days away.  My first cell phone was a Nokia.  No matter what I did to it or how many times I dropped it, it kept right on going.  After that, I switched to Samsung. They were (and are still) sleek and sexy and high tech.

I'm In It For the Look!

In it for the looks?  Want a Galaxy S 4 Mini?  They are going to be introducing the La Fleur edition for this particular phone at the beginning of the year.  Definitely an attractive phone.

Delta Says "NO"

Delta says "No" to in-flight cell phone calls.  Thank you, Delta, for taking that first step.  Flying is stressful enough with chatty neighbors, crying babies, lack of leg space and being crushed in all together (can't afford to fly First Class).  We don't really need people trying to have conversations on their cell, trying to talk over everybody else, and letting me and the world know about their sex life, hysterectomy, boss, etc.  For this alone, I would choose Delta over the other airlines for my travels.  Really! If I wanted to listen to others on their cell phones, I can just go to a restaurant or stand in line at the grocery store.

It's a Match!

Now that various phones come in different colors, do you ever think, I want to get that one - it matches my car perfectly!  The cell phone is the one accessory both men and women carry on a daily basis.  It used to be black.  Then, we had gray/silver.  Last night I was actually watching a commercial (unusual for me as I DVR everything).  And, I own that new lime green Fiesta.  Do you know, the Apple 5c comes in lime green?  For one second, I thought, I should get that.  It would match my car perfectly.  And, then I laughed at myself.  But, I like colors.  They are cheery.  And, who knows, maybe I will buy that phone.

Santa Sets Example

Even Santa doesn't text and drive. He pulls over before chatting on his cell phone. LOL

Android or Apple? The discussion continues.

Android or Apple?  The never ending debate.  This time the debate was between the LG G2 and the iPhone 5S.  I know I'm a bit wishy washy on the subject, but if it came down to it, I would go with Android.

Fly me to the moon...

Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars... A line from an old song. And, it could come true in your lifetime thanks to companies like Virgin Galactic.

R.I.P. - Nelson Mandela

Our sympathies and thoughts go out to the family of Nelson Mandela and the people of South Africa. He changed the world more than anyone else in this and the last century. He dealt THE death blow to apartheid. Rest in Peace, Sir.

Drone Delivery Next

Did anyone watch the interview Jeff Bezos, Amazon, with Charlie Rose, 60 Minutes?  The future is almost here.  I've been inside one of the Amazon's distribution centers.  It is incredible!  There seems to be no rhyme or reason to how it's laid out. But, when explained, it makes all the sense in the world. Then, they have the Cloud.  All my books, music and family pictures are safely on the Cloud.  Coming up next - delivery by drone.  Yep, you heard me.  Amazon is working on a 30-minute delivery time (beating out the 2-day free shipping with Prime) by 47.5 hours.  I can't wait.  I've been there since the beginning.  I'm impressed!
