Buying new technology is never easy - and never a sure thing. I spent way too long researching my new cell phone this past summer. I settled on the Sony Ericsson T637. Right after I received it in the mail, all I saw on the street were Motorola flip-phones. What a mistake!, I thought.

No more. In the last five days I've seen at least 7 Sony Ericsson phones of the same type as mine, in use by people I know and strangers on the street. It is a good phone - it includes a camera (not a great one), bluetooth and infared.

It's weird how I sometimes we're not comfortable with what we have until we know someone else has it, too.
