Latest obsession  
For some reason my latest obsession is cell phones and their design. I think it's because I want to do more with my cell phone but can't since I'm on a family plan and my phone has limitations. Also, American phones are so far behind in comparison to other countries, especially Japan. Just now we are starting to see phones that use 3G here in the states whereas Japan has been using it for quite awhile now, and many people use their phones not just for talking and texting but also for reading, watching movies/shows or surfing the web, paying bills, etc. Sure, phones here are just starting to incorporate such technology but I don't understand why the U.S. is so far behind technology-wise in some departments. *sigh* Anyway, like I said, my latest obsession is with cell phone design. For some reason I like blocky, flat phones or phones that are very square/rectangle in shape. I really don't like round or curvaceous phones.

Sanyo's Katana DLX from Sprint. This is one of the few U.S. phones that I like design-wise... too bad Sprint only offers it in pink. Another U.S. phone I like is probably the LG CU515, but I don't have a picture for that.


Anyway, I'm thinking if and when my family contract ends I might end up getting my own plan so I can pay for my phone myself instead of my parents paying... Unless of course it's just cheaper to be on the family plan then I can just stay on that. I kind of want a new phone but too bad the U.S. phone market sucks. I think a lot of the phones are just plain ugly and don't have features/designs that I like (please stop using freaking rubber buttons on phones! They are annoying!) So yeah, I am recently obsessed looking at phones online and checking out plans for the future. lol I guess this keeps me busy with something other than work... which I have become so lazy about recently. I don't want to do anything in regards to work since last week. :\
