The Brightly Coloured Object

I am really, really liking my iPhone 6. My only complaint about it is minor; when I turn it sideways it's a little too large for my hands to type. That's it, that's the only complaint. I got a 64 gb one because it eliminates the need for any other device. I gave my iPod Nano to Steve, who seems to have re-formed it to his liking.

On his recommendation, I paid $2.99 at the App Store for a podcast app called Downcast. Unlike the podcast app native to iDevices, I don't need to plug the phone to iTunes to sync podcasts. It downloads as soon as it's in wifi, and podcasts auto-delete as soon as I'm done listening. I've discovered a near-daily show called Real Ghost Stories that I'm enjoying as brain candy.

The real discovery has been iTunes U. Currently, I'm listening to a lecture series on the history of jazz, and it's free! I also put on a series on Byzantine theology because why not. I can also listen to foreign language lessons, and am trying to decide on what history classes would be useful and interesting to me.

IMO, "because why not" is always an excellent reason!

I love my iPhone 6 too! I agree that when turned sideways it's a little too big, at least for me to type with! Also the keyboard layout changes slightly when rotated which has caused some mistakes.
