Just popping my head up briefly to mention that I have finally joined the 21st century and gotten a smart phone. It's an LG Android, and I'm using OK Google and TalkBack with it, so I can do 21st sentury things like send text by voice. Also, it can do Google searches faster than I can open my browser and type.

I'm still getting used to being able to use natural language, but am adapting quite quickly to issuing orders such as "Play John Lee Hooker" and receiving instant gratification.

It's more like a familiar than a smart phone, so I have named it Pyewacket.
Thank you to Alexx, who spent a tortuous amount of time on his phone to get me the phone I wanted, and attempting to instruct me in the way of the magical gestures (I'm more an incantatory sort myself, so this was no small feat).

My most recent success: answering a call while simultaneously playing WWOZ, and not losing either process.
