The iPhone 5 begins shipping today.
People are waiting in line, overnight, to be the first to get it.
I like gadgets; I like technology.
My smart-phone has made my life easier and so much more convenient.
(It has also made it much harder to turn “off” work.)
Obviously, I love cameras and lenses too.

And my laptop.
And my Kindle.
And my husband’s iPad when I occasionally borrow it.
I have never understood why people spend the night camping out for a new phone.
(Conversely, I realize many of you probably don’t understand why I take photos with an expensive professional camera instead of a a camera phone.)
I was chomping at the bit to get the Canon 5D Mark III camera when it came out.
I put off getting a full frame camera for over a year, just waiting for the Mark III to be available.
I guess we all have different gadgets and/or technology we “love.”
My current phone happens to be an iPhone.
It’s two years old, and I’m “eligible” for a new one.
And, don’t get me wrong, I’m sure I will get a new iPhone in time.
And I’m sure I’ll like it.
(I’ll especially like the improvements to the camera, of course.)
But, I see no reason to camp out, stand in long lines, or make an event out of getting a new phone.
Almost every new piece of technology has a few bugs when it first hits the market.
I’m perfectly happy waiting awhile for those bugs to be resolved.
Are you a phone fanatic?
What’s your favorite gadget and/or type of technology?
And would you stand in a line for hours/days so you could be the first to have it?
