Starting the New Year organized?

Me organized? It doesn't sound terribly likely I know. But our oldest son has finally dragged me into the 21st century with the aid of a smart-phone. I've linked it to a shiny new gmail account, resulting in emails, a totally chaotic address book full of random disconnected contacts, and a calendar, all easily (?) accessible from that sliver of plastic in my back pocket.

I kept thinking I ought to get organized and answer some of the those facebook, linkedin, gather, squidoo and twitter emails piling up in my old (non-gmail) inbox. But instead I'm getting organized making facebook, linkedin, gather etc send their mails to a nice new address... Then I get distracted... Then I look for wallpaper and ringtones and try out the GPS... And then...

Well, and then I make dinner. But in case you were wondering why I've not posted your book reviews or replied to your emails yet, please blame organization. Who knows, this time next week I might finally learn what year it is.

LOL! I had a smartphone for a little while but hated it. I switched back to a dumb phone. (I don't like phones anyway)

I'm probably the only one in the office who don't have a smart phone (haven't bothered to ask for one yet). I'm not very interested in electronic gadgets, and manage well with old-fashioned Nokia >:)

Sounds like a fun toy. I don't think I'll get one though. I don't have enough time in the day for all of the toys I already have.
