What's App, Technobobo?

What is it with Apple-Mac gadgets that make people crazy? Even if it is more expensive than the usual laptops, cellphone, tablets, etc., people still prefer this product.  A friend said it's because Mac seldom gets infected with viruses common to other computer brands.  Another said it's the "prestige" that comes with owing such Mac gadgets. I only have an iPod Nano (first generation), which I beg my father to buy for me a week after its release. So, as you can see, it's quite old now.

I like to label myself as "techno-bobo" because I know just a few basic stuff about computers and technology.  Frankly, I'm not interested with it. Did I mention it also intimidates me? It's the technobobo in me. That's why, when my old Nokia 2730 (go ahead, google it) showed the wear and tear sign, my husband insisted that we replace it with an iPhone 4s.I got excited! Even though I didn't know about its feature, it became on top of my wish list last Valentines Day.

So the husband bought me a new cellphone on Valentine's Day, and we decided to upgrade my cellphone plan. And just like the iPod Nano, I liked the iPhone 4s!

One of the things I love about it, are the Apps or Application Software (again, google it). It makes a lot of things easy and fun. I have an ebook reader, period tracker, episode guide, and farmville which are some of my favorites. Would you believe that they also have an apps for cloth diaper and list of bags and shoes for every brand? For my baby, I have baby music and kids' songs while for the husband, games and lotto. Below are my top ten apps, aside from facebook and twitter:

instagram, period diary, ibook, episoder, flipboard
pinoy lotto, baby music, clothdiaper, farmville, temple run
Other honorable mentions are Sim Simi, Move the box, Bejewelled Bliz, which also makes waiting time, fun time.

Never in my blogging life did I dream of writing about electronic stuff. I'm giving myself a pat on the back just for creating this post. Maybe in the future when I'm confident enough to mention tech terms that sound like German to me, I may do some reviews on the latest gadgets and thingamajigs.

Haha. I think I am also a bit of techno-bobo. Lots of new gadgets these days. May pambili naman ako, but I don't care a lot. I just buy what's best for me.

Well, actually I think the reason why people dig Apple is because it's currently the "in' thing now. Also, people would assume that you are in middle to upper class if you have one of their product considering that it's expensive.

As a design enthusiast, I like the design and feel of Apple product. But now, I believe Samsung is trying to get into the same level as to Apple. :)

Seriously, I try not to jump into the Techno-bandwagon just because every year a new model is being released. Sayang eh. hehe.

But good for you to have the iPhone 4s! :D

I followed you pala sis. I hope you'll follow me back!

You spoke too soon! They just recently found a virus "attacking" Mac computers.

I love gadgets myself although until now, I still have my 7 year old Palm Treo 680 and it doesn't even have WiFi! I guess I just love it so much and I can't let go. =)
