I think Chris and others who think people have smartphones to say "look at me! I'm cool!" need to grow up to be honest. I mean really, who thinks you're cool for having a smartphone? They're so commonplace now it doesn't matter if you have one. Yes, I get it. You're oh so disenfranchised.Seriously though, most people in the real world don't care. Do I care if someone has a flip phone that can't even check Facebook? No. Do I care if someone has the newest Android with ICS? Not really. Do I have a smartphone? Yes. Is it useful for reasons beyond app development and Facebook? Yes. I can store my work's vault codes, alarm codes and cashbox codes on a cloud server and access them from my phone without worry of my wallet being stolen and those codes being stolen along with it. A friend of mine is in the Coast Guard and working the Port of Entry in Portland deals with a lot of non English speakers. He has a handy app that listens to what the individual is saying in their native language and it translates it to English for him. He can change the settings to translate what he says into their language. No language barrier to worry about. Access your entire MP3 library on the go without worrying about how much space is on your device? Google music! Long public transit ride getting you down? Open up the Kindle app and do some reading or play some games. There's a lot more to smartphones than "hey I'm cool!". Anyone who gets one to be cool is a douche. Anyone who really thinks the majority of people get them to be cool is also a douche. Now I can almost agree when it comes to people who have to upgrade their phone every single time a better one comes out. Shit. Save your hard earned money and use the phone that came out 6 months prior that works just as good.
