I remember when she and Cindi Lauper were both the newbies on scene. Good thing I didn't bet with money, because I "knew" Lauper would come out on top. oh well.
Everyone did. Madonna copied her style, without having great songs or an interesting personality like Lauper.
I think she mainly stayed in there just by becoming
a pure celebrity like that Beckam woman who was in the Spice Girls. -there was all that stuff with Sean Penn, Warren Beaty, the movies the book... etc. But people don't remember history and imagine that she got and stayed famous for her signing and performing.
What I really dislike are (1) talking out into the air and (2) the teensie little buttons. Even with smallish fingers, I still can hit 2 or 3 buttons at a time ---I HATE texting on those things. And they're getting smaller all the timeDon't really agree witht he size issues. I've got big hands and fat fingers and I never hit two buttons at once. Even on my old phone with a physical keyboard I never did. Also, phones aren't getting smaller at this point, they're getting bigger. The android phones and the iPhones are bigger than past generation phones to accomodate the larger screens (which also allow for bugger buttons on the touch screens). Add to that the new wave of tablets hitting the market and we're starting to get phones that are getting back to the REALLY old school proportions
Yes and no.
The touch screen genre of phones are uniformly big. That is true.
But normal phones (i.e. not
smartphones), which still make up the vast majority of phones made and sold, do tend to be slightly smaller all the time.
I have long thin fingers and I've mashed the buttons on those things...
Whereas texting on my Android touchscreen is a dream, especially after the nightmare of doing it on teeny Nokia phones! Having the whole alphabet on the virtual keyboard as well as auto-correcting spell-checking is lovely!
-Apart from when I don't check it and it ends up replacing perfectly good words with hilarious errors... Especially bad when I'm posting to Twitter or something from it.
However, some phone companies do not excel in touch screen. That same Samsung phone has a hard time responding to scrolling, whereas an iPhone is just sensitive enough. I feel like a few of these companies are trying to ride that touch screen wave too early before they fix some of their glaring issues.
My HTC Desire works nicely.
-Being contactable any time: switch off the phone. Works wonders!
