Capture the Everyday: modern technology

It’s confession time.

I ate about half a sleeve of chocolate chip cookies last night. While watching American Idol and really enjoying it (Scotty as Elvis? Oh my heart!). I bribed my kid to eat her green beans at dinner. And I had a little “Oh crap I’m having a baby” freak-out moment, with tears, in the car this morning.

Also? I’m addicted to my new iPhone. Totally, completely addicted.

Hello App Store, my love. I use the Amazon bar scanner just because I can. I downloaded the Cracker Barrel app because you just never know when you’ll need a biscuit and some sweet tea. And the (free!) Skype app made it possible for me to see my family’s faces as we talked last month while I was away at a conference.

So it goes without saying that I did a little jump for joy when I saw this week’s Capture the Everyday photo challenge.

Here she is: technology. Wrapped in a cute little pink sleeve.

One of my favorite apps, Hipstamatic, is the very definition of irony. Using modern technology to make photos look old. I love all of the different “lenses” and “film” choices. Here are some Hipsta shots of our blooming yard:

What’s your favorite gadget? Are you in love with your smart phone too? Or is it just me? Please say it’s not just me.

    • YES! We have won the battle over resistant husbands. šŸ™‚

  8. I was reading a blog on my one day old iPhone in the hospital when I stopped for two seconds and thought “huh, that feels funny”. The nurse said I was ready to go. Like, NOW! No two hours of contractions when you’re distracted by your new gadget! My new toy is my iPad which will be loaded down with new goodies to play with while I wait for this next babe to make their appearance. Right now I’m addicted to Pitureka. It’s so lame but I just can’t stop myself.

  9. I’ve had a mad passionate affair with my phone for years. My husband once went to hug me and had to move my phone out of the way. He said he didn’t want to crush my 4000 people on Twitter šŸ™‚

  10. No iPhone here, but mine is a Backflip and when it works I totally enjoy it and find it addictive. For a while when I first got it I had to sit in the car on Twitter and just read and respond BECAUSE I COULD. So I hear ya!

  11. Like you, I’m totally in love with my iPhone!! It’s an amazing device! On short trips, it has replaced my beloved camera! hehe…

    I used to use the Hipstamatic app quite a fair bit too but these days, I love the Pudding camera app (it’s a Korean app)!

    • Cool — will definitely check out Pudding. I’m all for discovering new camera apps! Thanks!!

  12. Love your little belly shot! I agree, I could not live without my iphone. I mean how else am I going to waste 53 hours- yes 53 (mostly at night after the house goes to sleep) playing those damn angry birds??
