Friday Fun – A Little Bit of Mac in Our Lives… Enter the iPhone!

by Jody on November 27, 2009, posted in Friday Fun

Alright all you Mac fan boys out there… you can rejoice, we bought our first big Mac product (we don’t think iPods TOTALLY count and it is funny that we said Big Mac).  We broke down and bought iPhones!

Yes, it’s true.  We have been with Sprint for almost 9 years and had a killer phone bill payment plan! Unfortunately,  Sprint was just lacking with their coverage (well, AT&T isn’t much better…), customer service (big time!), and the phones they offered.  One of our bigger conversion factors was trying to get more connected and interactive with different social media outlets like Twitter and FaceBook which can be a huge part of growing one’s business (and has been for us), but have been a bit limited while out of the office and out of town with our interaction that we have been able to have due to our sucky phones.

So right before we headed to PartnerCon we switched over and have been digging it so far!  (Yes, Heather & Eugene, you were right…).

We’re actually tweeting more often, responding to direct messages (woo hoo) and tweeting back to peeps.  Amazing.  We know.

People say this may be the beginning of our (94.5 percent of the market share) PC to (6.5 percent of the market share) Mac conversion but we don’t think so.  Sorry to disappoint.

And here they are!

Ahh… and we have matching cases in “his” black and “her” blue. Is that not cute or what?

What do you love about your iPhone?  For those of you in business, what about the iPhone has made your business better? I personally love the fact that my text messages are all saved together by person in a conversation so I can remeber what I said to who!

    WHOO HOOO WELCOME TO THE DARK SIDE!!! I personally haven’t gone the phone route yet.. (but I’m working from home with my kids 90% of the time) I hope your first experience with the wonderful intelligent MAC technology brings you back for more!

    Which is an ironic statistic as that’s also the same percentage of how often PC’s crash and fail… LOL
    welcome to the functioning family guys… Even of just on a small scale…

    I LOVE my iPhone! It really is what photographers need to keep in touch! With my iPhone, I can be out of the office and my clients never know! Constant contact with the outside world is awesome! And to get away from it all…I just turn it off….

    I LOVE my iPhone – I love that when I am talking to someone I can immediately access my calendar, set up dates, do three way calling, all while I am out!

    I love the ability to text and check email, or update my status on Facebook.

    And I really do think that one day you will make the switch! I used to train people how to work and fix PCs. Terry used to build PCs. Then one day he told me he wanted a Mac. I laughed at him and mocked him. But then I watched him use the darn thing and it just worked! Four and a half years ago I made the switch and I WILL NEVER GO BACK! This from the girl who used to train people how to use PCs!

    I just got an iPhone a few weeks ago and I LOVE IT! The wordpress app lets me approve blog comments and post from my phone, and the google reader app comes in handy for keeping up with my favorite blogs! Enjoy :)

    I’m commenting here from my iPhone- Love, Love, Love it!! Rocked my world when I made the switch. Only downside is the bigger bill- I was a diehard Sprint-er too. But in NY, ATT coverage is great. Best app? NYC subway map! Yeehaw! Also love IFound, and Have2Pee. :). And the Moron Test- totally addictive. ENJOY the little Macs!
