From the article:
"A few months ago I purchased my first cell phone, a Sony Ericsson X10, since 2003. My previous phone was a cheap Motorola flip phone that had two functions: Send text messages or make phone calls. For someone like my father who is not very technologically savvy, I would say this was more than enough, because he would never text anyway (at least I don’t think he would). However, for someone like me, well… I was really feeling behind the times, what with everyone talking about how fun Angry Birds is and what apps they are currently using."
