  • LG’s shinyprettyshiny phone

    @ 8:46 am | by Ciara O'Brien

    There are two sides to my tech personality. The first is the jaded cynic, who views everything with the question “yes, but what does it actually DO?”. This demands something extra rather than the same tired technology over and over again. Except with maybe a shiny new cover.

    The second is the one I usually try to keep hidden. It’s the one that spots the shiniest gadget in the place and immediately starts thinking “SHINY PRETTY SHINY WANT”. It’s not very dignified, and usually leads to me owning things like pink mobile phones and laptops.

    I’m not sure what side this new LG phone will bring out. Frankly, I’m a little scared.
