I looked up my klout.com score the other day, an indicator of how much influence you have in social media, to find the number hilariously low. What was even more amusing, however, was that it said I was influential in my limited capacity about iPhones and iPads, neither of which I owned at the time nor knew a lot about. Except it may be possible that klout can also see into the future, because I am now in the possession of an iPhone.
Or rather, we own 3 iPhones. For the kids.
The kids received these iPhones as gifts recently. They’re previously used and not on a plan for cell calls, but there are games galore and they’re connected to our internet. While the younger ones just like to press buttons, not fully realizing what they do, Jedi has always been more tech savvy. He’s played many of these games before, and took to his new toy like a geek to suspenders.
They are also programmed with their dad’s email, along with Skype and instant messaging, so they can harass him as much as they want. Jedi was thoroughly entertained with these new features at the ready.
His very first text message ever sent:
Technology is great.
