In my continuing failure to keep only the most serious of topics on this site, I add this...

Those who have known me for any length of time will know that I do not often replace my possessions just because something newer or shinier or more versatile has been released. I generally buy "nice" things and take care of them for as long as they will last, even if I have the means to "upgrade," I would usually rather just keep my money.

Well, after five plus years with the Kyocera QCP-6350 (no link, I think it predates the hyperlink), I have replaced it with an iPhone.

The QCP-6350 was a Palm phone and was the last phone made by Qualcomm - although it had Kyocera's name on it. It was considered better than its successor by far. While not on the cutting edge of technology, everything on it was integrated and worked.

It was only within the last few months that voice on it started breaking. In phone years, it should be in the ground and just about oil by now.

I should be as lucky for the iPhone to last as long. If not, I may be iRate. =)

OK. Time to put down the phone & post. Some of us are having withdrawal symptoms. ;-)

I am sorry about that. Between work and work and my next post, I've been a bit indisposed.

I know I'm treading the beggar/chooser line.

I hope you're feeling better.
