As I swallow the red pill...

I feel excited.
I feel anxious.
I feel adventurous.
I feel a bit sad.
I feel brave.

The feeling of exploring the unknown, not knowing whats in store for you, not knowing if you are going to be pleasantly surprised or massively disappointed.

Fandroids promise freedom to choose, break the shackles and be what you want to be.
Apple fans prefer to be bound, enjoy the ease of use and say you know what? freedom is irrelevant for, you have everything you need in the iTunes.

My wake up call came when I was forced to upgrade to latest version of iOS and that made my perfectly working, staying in the jail, iPhone 3G work like a lazy donkey on a sleeping pills. VERY SLOW. I had to buy the latest iPhone because
1. It was the fastest and greatest iPhone, yet.
2. I had apps that I bought, and liked using.
3. I did not think.

Now that more than 6 months passed between my iPhone 4S and Rema's iPhone 3G(S) has apparently outlived its life span, and now is the time to get a new phone. This time, I realize we have a choice.

We can take the blue pill and believe what ever we are told by Apple Fans, or take the red pill and see how true is the claims by Fandroids .

In a clever move, I convinced Rema that she should take my 4S and let me venture out and explore and see if there is truth in the Fandroids claims. As a chivalrous husband, I offered to take the red pill first, and then come back to rescue her.

Ordered Samsung S3 yesterday. The delivery is supposed to be between 1930 and 2130 hrs today. As I write this, I am waiting, for the red pill to reach the tummy and I begin to experience the "Real World", and As I wait,


I feel excited.
I feel anxious.
I feel adventurous.
I feel a bit sad.
I feel brave.
