Cellular Notepad: Use It...

How can I begin this blog entry? Well first I suppose I should say that it has been a long time in the making. I had been wanting to write about the notepad function on my phone ever since last year when it became so useful to me.

In my opinion one of the handiest and most practical tools available on many cell phones today is the notepad. It may not seem like much at first glance, but this is because it truly is as simplistic in nature as the original physical representation of the notepad. In fact it varies very little from a regular notepad in purpose as well as functionality.

A convenience of the cellular notepad is that it is theoretically a quicker and more efficient way of taking notes. It provides the user with the option of texting their notes rather than handwriting them on a piece of paper. Though it does not have a complete word processor with thesaurus and spell check the cellular notepad provides the user with space to solidify ideas and thoughts that otherwise would have been forgotten.

I am the proud owner of an LG Envy model VX9900, which has some of the most advanced features that mobile phones today can possess. Currently I have about 30 notes that I have taken down over the past year. The notes that I have vary from funny quotes to things I want to blog about. I can't help but advocate the use of this tool.

Below are a few of my favorite notes:

"Polluting won't make you happy." - Dec. 8, 2008 3:41 am
"The higher the hair the closer to God." - Dec. 21, 2008 10:26 am
"Jorts are jean shorts." - Dec. 25, 2008 6:18 pm

"The average baby goes through 3000 diapers per year." Jan. 11, 2008 2:39 pm
"Facebooking someone is when you slam a phone book in someone's face when they are passed out drunk and then scream..oh you got facebooked." - Jan. 3, 2008 3:31pm
