Cracked it

I dropped my iphone on the pavement when I was walking the dog. The screen was smashed.

The first thing that came to my mind is how on Earth do people manage to still use their phones with a cracked screen. I see lots of people on the train with cracked smartphone screens seemingly oblivious to the cracks obstructing the view of whatever/whoever it is that they are looking at (or texting). I could barely see anything through mine and it wasn't even that badly smashed.

The second thing that came to my mind was to go buy a new phone, which is what I did. Nothing fancy...an older model iphone (soon to be superseded). I just need it to make calls, text and read the news. Hmmm...I just hope I can find a protective casing for it.

I think at your age, you need a smart phone, not a dinosaur old type phone.

Bad timing, the next iPhone is only weeks away I hear.

Andrew: I am a dinosaur at heart.
Victor: I will probably get the iphone7 just as it is about to be phased out ;-)
