Although I work for an IT company, I’m personally a technology laggard. Why? My excuse is that there are too many choices and it’s too much trouble! The only reason I recently upgraded my 1st generation Android phone (the salesperson actually laughed at me) to a fancy new Droid Razr is because I wanted a better camera to capture the birth of our second child. To my surprise, it was a relatively painless process – I began to enjoy playing the ‘mobility game’ . I walked into the store and was able to pick out a device based on a few key functions; a sales associate provided migration services to get my contacts, data and pictures to the new phone and then showed me how to actually use the thing. What’s more, it came pre-loaded with about 70% of the applications that I use on a regular basis, and in less than an hour my new phone was configured and ready to go.
