This phone is only good for talking…it’s useless! -JD
Remember the film “Black Hawk Down”? That wasn’t nearly as tragic of a problem as I’m currently facing. This blog entry has two purposes. The first is to give you an idea of what happened. After that I will pontificate on how important having a smart phone has become in my life.

I have to swipe my finger to bring up the unlocking code input screen. I started to do so, but the screen wouldn’t respond. You read that correctly: The SCREEN wouldn’t RESPOND. That meant that I couldn’t even unlock the phone. It was now useless to me.
I’m a busy guy and I’ve got to have an assistant, but I can’t afford payroll or benefits for a real human being. I have to use a smartphone to get the job done. My trusty HTC/AT&T Tilt did a great job these past couple of years, but it was time to retire ole’ Tilty. HTC had delivered the Touch Pro 2 to the American market and AT&T renamed their version the Tilt 2.
I mean look at this beautiful device. I don’t want to be shallow or anything, but my assistant has to look good. I have a reputation to uphold.
Let’s jump right in and get to the different areas of the Tilt 2:
This baby’s got curves! Umm hmmm…check out that body. Here’s what I think you should notice.
