Accessories Must Fit Hyphenated Lifestyles
After I got my first iPhone in 2008, on my way to a family work-cation in Cabo, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. If, indeed, “heaven” is the ability to combine work and recreation into an unending stream of urgent emails and up-to-the-minute restaurant reviews.
With my new iPhone I could take client calls, send and receive email, read proposals, and schedule meetings and meals directly in my calendar. I felt I had an entire office worth of equipment resting in the palm of my hand.
At the same time, my device was helping me enjoy the “vacation” part of the trip—capturing and sharing photos, reading the latest novels, listening to music, planning excursions, playing games and much more. The iPhone was a boon to my crazy, multitasking lifestyle. And, like most women (and more than a few men), I soon felt the uncontrollable urge to accessorize.
