Today is my cell phone's fifth birthday.
Buying a new phone is more common than I'd thought for Koreans. It turns out that 68% of Koreans got a new phone in 2012, the highest turnover rate in the world. Of the 32% that didn't get a new one, some must have gotten new ones in 2011, 2010, and 2009. The number of people still using a phone manufactured in 2008, before smart phones, must be very low. / Hey, this phone still works fine. I'm used to it. The battery still holds a charge fairly well, to my surprise. Why do I need a smart phone? That's my feeling on the matter.
Now that Tim is gone, I think I am the only employee at the language-institute here without a smart phone. Oh well.
