is consumer whore cami making a comeback?

As I was reading the little kaos a bedtime story and Mr. Kaos was listening intently from the foot of her bed we heard my crappy phone beep or make whatever strangled little noise it makes when it wants to tell me something. It wanted to tell me I had a message from my friend Dream. I knew it was from her without even looking, standing, thinking or checking because I so rarely get texts because my phone is crappy and I don’t send them…

But as soon as story time was finished Mr. Kaos bolted out of K’s room to retrieve my phone wanting to know what my phone could have possibly wanted to tell me.

“Oh, it’s a message from Dream” he muttered and tossed me the phone.

Um yeah, like I totally already knew that. and stuff.

Fast forward to almost an hour later I finally emerge victorious from the nightly battle that is ushering K into dreamland and am immediately confronted with Mr. Kaos blurting out the following statements, I must admit that I tried to get a word in edgewise but mostly it was just him in a long stream:

“We need to get you a better phone. Do you like my phone? Should we get you a treo, no you don’t want a blackberry or a black jack or anything like that I will just get you an iphone do you want and iphone or do you prefer the palm pilot platform you know I have like 10 years worth of info just sitting in my palm because I have been using them for so long and I really like us being on the same platform but if you would prefer an iphone we could get one for…”

That went on a bit. I argued a couple of points, like the fact that I simply can’t have an iphone or I will get flogged because of some comments I made about the absurd price of said iphone and it’s not being tested for a good length of time in the court of public opinion and then I said I didn’t want a treo like his because it has a big antenna and I don’t like that… I tried to interject a lot but it didn’t do much good but then he blurted out

“Oh wait, we can’t get you a new phone at all right now. We should wait.”

What the fuck I thought. Or did I say it? I may have said it… but very quietly, and I waited for an explanation of why he was telling me how badly I needed a better phone that did cool stuff like surfing the web and allowing me to post on the go and blah blah and then had suddenly frozen both mouth and wallet by stifling my sudden joy at getting a new tech toy…

I waited a bit longer.

Are you waiting with me?

….

“Why?”

I finally asked.

He replied quite simply: “The google phone”

Oh yes, the google phone I had forgotten all about the google phone, of course of course the google phone. I thought the google phone wasn’t coming out for like a year or something… but he is quite firm on the fact that it will be out this fall. Why is he sure? I have no idea. I don’t think anyone told him anything or he has any inside information or anything. He just says it is.

I couldn’t find that on the interwebs anywhere, but honestly I didn’t look too hard, I tend to blindly trust him because he never leads me astray…

So he says this fall, more specifically he thinks in September. He is mocking me this very moment for not seeing on the internet that the google phone is coming out very soon. I am being MOCKED. He found the info, so it isn’t like he is magic or anything…. he is babbling about stuff, lots of knowledge, apparently I am an idiot because it is on Crunch Gear.

Forgive me, I don’t read tech blogs… but he does and he is telling me I should wait for the google phone…

So I am waiting. You know, for the google phone. and to see if it will even work with my service provider…

unless google phone wants to give me one to test?

OH SMACK.

I was right he was wrong… It looks like his little “sources” are saying it will come out sometime next year. LIKE I SAID.

Welcome to an evening at the Kaos dining table.

Looks like I am screwed for a decent phone till next year….

Though now he is contradicting himself and saying it WILL be out this fall… because engadget says so…

Will CamiKaos ever get a new phone? Will it be a google phone? Will I ever talk again?

Stay tuned for the further adventures of CamiKaos consumer whore and her know it all tech savvy husband.

    I think it’s OK to be a consumer whore sometimes. And, yes, I think you will be getting a new phone soon.

  2. Bubblewench says:

    I so heard that conversation too. I’d LIKE to text you sometimes but you always say NOT to cause your phone is crap. Get a new phone already will you?

  3. Jen says:

    I’ve never even heard of a google phone before. Well, I hope you get a nice new phone sooner rather than later.

    You will be my guinea pig on whatever type you choose. For soem reason, we seem to have the same phones all the time, and I certainly need a new one, too!Texting is for teenagers, anyway.

  6. CamiKaos says:

    Syb, Lindy: I will let you all know as soon as I know more. Mr. Kaos says there will be an announcement of some kind after the holiday weekend.

  7. Jo Beaufoix says:

    Do you think Mr Kaos really is Batman and is actually trialling the googlephone at the moment in top secret?
