The Super Glue was still holding the curved piece of plastic along the top of my five year old flip phone, a piece of plastic that served as a backstop for the plastic hinge connecting the two sections of the phone. But it did what was supposed to do—ring when some called me and maintain the wireless signal until I hung the phone up.
Recently, I have had to come to grips with the fact that managing several different projects and multiple workplace environments is next to impossible without some means of unifying your email accounts and having access to them all in real-time. So I figured I had no choice but to finally break down and get a smartphone.
