Yesterday I couldn’t find my N810. The hunt started on Sunday night and was reinitiated yesterday morning. No N810, nowhere in sight. As the night waned on yesterday I renew the hunt. It was like I was looking for the great pumpkin Charlie Brown. Eventually it was found where you always expect ot find these things, behind a cushion on the couch.
This device (even when I don’t use it) has become so integral to my daily life that I flipped out more over that missing then I have or missing a wallet or cell phone for an extended period. It may be the cost of the device, but I think it’s more the functionality and freedom it gives me (I’m sure it didn’t help that I was in the middle of Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother E-Book).
It’s strange since i could go for weeks without seeing my ipod or my Palm TX, two things that this has replaced. Now it’s working on becoming the extension of myself that fills the gap when I’m away from a laptop or computer.
I’m quite happy with it.
