My cell phone is a Motorola StarTAC. They were all the rage a couple of years ago, and I have had mine since then, because I have gotten very used to it. I like that it’s the size of a full fledged phone when opened, and thin enough to fit into my pockets when closed.
I also like the fact that I have managed to learn to open it with just a flick of the wrist.
Since I got this phone, I stopped carrying a watch - I just use the phone’s built in clock that gets set by Verizon automatically.
The thing is, I think that the act of flipping the phone open is so cool, that when I flip it open to look at the time, I sometimes focus too much on the coolness aspect of it to actually remember what the time is.
This leads to me going back into my pocket to get it again, and look at the time the second time.
It’s pretty stupid. I’m glad I got that off my chest.
