I Need An iPhone

Generally speaking, I'm not one to covet technology. My computer skills are moderate-to-fair and my pay-as-you-go emergency cell phone is charged so rarely that the only way it could actually help me in an emergency is if I was being attacked and could throw it in self-defence. It takes me a good five minutes to navigate through my husband's blackberry to find a phone number and I've dropped my digital camera so many times that I probably should never have been given one in the first place. At the end of the day, I'm really more of an aged paper and thin-tipped black pen kind of girl and I tend to splurge on beautiful notebooks over anything that requires charging.

Something tells me that this is about to change.

Today, as I browsed through my regular circuit of art and design blogs, I came across this little article on design*sponge about two new apps that have been designed for the iphone. The new apps allow you to take a picture with your iphone and instantly match the colours to corresponding sherwin williams and benjamin moore paint chips and colour numbers. Amazing!

As someone with a new apartment in her near future, this latest iphone development might just be the final fun, sparkly thing to get me to embrace the wired life.


  1. I totally saw the post from design*sponge earlier today and thought about how great it would be to have an i-phone!

    Don't do it though - once you take a step in that direction, it will be the end of all things social. Just ask your husband ;)

  2. I know, you're right! I can totally see us sitting beside each other on the couch texting 'I love you' and waiting for the iPhone marriage counseling app to launch.
