Wishing For And Getting It As Christmas Gift
It is just normal for us mortals to wish for something especially during the Christmas season of gift-giving. While they say that Christmas is for the children to receive the gifts from elders, I believe, we too, the adults can wish for something we want during the season and hope that we get what we wish for. I am not an exemption to what I said. Without telling anybody, I also wish for something during this season and hope that I get what I wish for. As a retired person without regular income, my wish for a material thing will have to come from somebody else.
Although I belong to a generation where only three (3%) percent among us access the Internet, I consider myself techno-savvy enough to understand the specifications of the gadgets that I use. I am not particular with the brand of a device as long as its specifications show it can do what I wanted. Of course, there are so many reviews available in the Internet so I consult them before buying the item I have in mind. And like many of us, price matters on anything I want but I make sure that the device has most of the features that the top-of-the line brand has.
The cellular phone technology came into the Philippines in the early 1990’s and its evolution has not stopped since then. When the digital systems replaced the analog ones some more than ten (10) years ago, more and more ways of communications and entertainment were introduced by our mobile phone service providers. The manufacturers, in the aim to maintain their share of the market, never ceased to introduced new products that would entice the consumers to buy.
Being one of those who get hitched to the technology of today, I would always desire to get my hands into the new products getting introduced in the market. As such, I wished for a smartphone or a tablet computer to come my way this Christmas. I got my wish when one of our children bought me a Samsung Galaxy 5 smartphone as an early gift this season. I am using the gadget for the past two (2) weeks and I am happy with it.
