Have you ever lost your smartphone along with all your contacts, appointments, and play dates? Mobile phones are so critical to our lives, seamlessly keeping us connected to work, family and friends. Even more crucial is the fact that our phones now serve as digital cameras and photo albums.
When I got my iPhone 4S, I made the mistake of not getting a cover. For weeks, I kept meaning to get a cover but didn’t want to spend the money on any old cover, I wanted a cool funky cover. And then one day, as I was walking to pick up my daughter, I slowly took my phone out of my pocket , fumbled it and watched it slide across the sidewalk. I remember trying to catch it just like in the movies and almost caught it before it left my fingers (where is a hidden camera when you want one?) but alas it was not meant to be. I thought for a brief moment that I was saved because it was intact and I did not see any glass around the phone but then I picked it up, the entire back of the phone was shattered.
I was crushed. It wasn’t so much the carelessness of my dropping it was that I did not even have the basic cover it on it. Sadly, I had no insurance and of course, I had to replace it, quite the costly error but that wasn’t all that was lost, it was time it took to replace. As they say, money can’t buy you time.
