my Samsung Galaxy 3 old phone, a year and a half old, died on me. I went back to iPhone the other day. Love it. I am not as advance as Steve, but I do like the phone, it really is convenient.

Steve, speaking of grocery, what's the name of that Grocery app you shared before?

Now that I've been using my new flip phone for a few days I miss not being able to cancel an incoming call simply by swiping the screen like I used to do with my smart phones.
I can only do one of two things with my flip phone.....either let it ring without answering (which is annoying) or flip open the phone and close immediately to hang up on the call. The latter will cost me a call since I'm on pre-paid.
Other than that it'a a nice, rugged phone. I already dropped it a couple of times to test its ruggedness. I don't think I'll test its waterproof feature although they claim it can be immersed in 3ft of water for 30 minutes. That claim, I don't trust.

Funny thing is that hipsters are trending back to the old flip phones.
My family was poking fun with me just last night about how I started riding fixed gear bicycles on the street some 20 years ago (and still do) and how the hipsters caught on a few years later. Now they're making fun of me with my new flip phone and fixed gear bicycles.
I am not a hipster.

I'm not a hipster either. I think? Not really sure what a "hipster" is?
But I also ride a big tire old fashioned beach bike (except its not that old).
I listen to old rock and I am a liberal.
So, am I a hipster or just hip?

I have never been connected to the word 'hip' in any way. That could change in the future if it's used in conjunction with the word 'broken'.

Hipsters like to create an image outside the "norm", often shunning popular things. Once something becomes mainstream, they move on to the next thing. Vintage attire mixed with eclectic things and music that nobody has really heard of is a big part of the lifestyle.
