Count me among the steadily shrinking segment of the world’s population who finds smartphones in all their manifestations objects to ridicule. I have a cell phone that receives and makes calls, stores my frequently called numbers (all 6 of them), and does nothing else that I know of. I buy several hundred minutes at a time, enough for a year or so, and pay no monthly bill. I’m happy in self imposed antiquity.
I hear about “Apps” I could buy from some App store but so far haven’t found any I have any use for. But in today’s email I discovered an app so revolutionary it just might make a convert of me. For $35 ($15 below MSRP) I can get a device with a built in app to store eggs in my refrigerator. It connects wirelessly to any smartphone and, no matter where I am in the world, will warm me when and which ones are past their use by date.
If I had one of those and a smartphone I would never have to wonder about my eggs. I would never again suffer the anguish of throwing away perfectly good eggs because I am uncertain of their freshness. It’s enough to turn me out of doors and hie me to my nearest Smartphone emporium and finally drag myself into the modern world.
