Smart Phones are Hard

I posted last week that I’d finally become a civilized member of the modern world and purchased my first smart phone.

Well, I’ve had the phone for two weeks now and I’m still very, very confused as to what I’m doing with it.

I’ve downloaded a couple of baseball-related applications (or “apps” as the cool kids are callin’ ‘em) and I’ve figured out how to get pictures to show up in my contacts list.
