Since signing my first mobile phone contract, “back in the day”, I have been able to get my email on my telephone. How I look back on those days of Dial-Up WAP fondly.
However, as noted by Baz Luhrmann, prices will rise, politicians will philander, and I too, will get old.
My phone contract is more expensive than it used to be, and although I swear by Google Maps, I also swear at the procrastination caused by obsessively and needlessly checking my email every 2 seconds. At a time when exams are looming, this is Not Good (and neither, probably, is blogging, but I’ll cross that bridge in a minute). When I couldn’t get personal email at work, and I spent a lot of time on the train, mobile internet proved to be very useful – but those days are gone, my friend.
So, this morning I rang Vodafone. At midnight tonight, my ‘Data Bundle’ will expire. Will it be for the greater good? Or will I just turn in to a pumpkin?
