Yesterday I afternoon, I ordered a new phone. Yesterday evening, my Walkman randomly switched off in the middle of a song. Today, the capacitive controls wouldn't light up, preventing me from stopping the music or changing tracks. In short, my phone is beginning to act up. has this been some act of divine providence or is my phone phone suddenly decided to make my remaining days with it a constant annoyance?
Probably neither, but it is interesting. Though I hope it lasts a while longer, as I may end up continuing to use it as an mp3 player. Unless I can make time in Ireland to unpack my computer from storage and get it all working I won't be able to put any music onto my new phone. A minor issue which I overlooked until recently.
Still, it's only a year old. Although it was old hat when I bought it, undeniably classy and flashy but old hat nonetheless, it was cutting edge and top of the line when it was new. I would expect it to last a bit longer, despite the beating I've given it over the course of the past year.
Well, it only has to last another month at most, so I won't be too bothered if it gives up the ghost.
