After 10 years of using an Android phone, my family finally convinced (coerced?) me into buying an iphone.
I got the iPhone 13 basic.

My wife and daughter got iPhones a couple of years back. My daughter got the watch last year, and my wife just got one for Mother's Day this year. They have been trying to convince me to change ever since they got their phones. I think they just want me on one so I can support them. Every time they need help, my answer is always, "I don't know, but on my Android, I just ..." (They hate that. [Evil Grin] )

Now they have convinced my older son to switch over. The three of them like showing us how they can use their watches like mini walkie-talkies.

I keep telling them that I am happy with my Android. When I asked my younger son if he wanted to get an iPhone and watch too, he just said, "I like my Android. Besides, I really don't want to have Mom constantly trying to talk to me through my watch."

The coercions continue, but I think my son and I will hold out fine.

Straw Poll

When thinking about your job, how important is the option to work from home?
Some bosses are casual about where you work, and some, naming no names, will insist you're in the office, always. What are your thoughts?
