The Little Red Book
May 10, 2011
This is my little red book. It’s a Filofax and it was superseded when I got my iPhone two years ago. Not sure what made me dust it off and bring it along for the ride to Adelaide, but I’ve started using it again. I’ve ditched the idea of nicely divided up spaces for days and dates and just using blank pages in the order in the respective months.
There’s something to be said for old technology. (Is a book old technology?)
My iPhone died last night. In the middle of a call it ran out of battery life. I plugged it in for a recharge and came back to a white screen. Spent the next hour trying to get it to work. Talk about bad timing. Still, was very happy I’d set up my appointments and contacts in my Little Red Book.
Luckily a lovely man in the Apple Store in Norwood got it working for me again, though he couldn’t guarantee it would last. Am thinking of investing in some carrier pigeons…
