Though I am tempted to let it slip to the floor, yet another obsolete technology, I am bound by my contract, a life-support system for aged tech that I desperately want to pull the plug on. Perhaps, I am too hasty to euthanize my phone, help it out the door as I eye a slimmer model. Could it be my mid-life crisis has arrived, and rather than a red convertible or muscular Mustang, I crave a new device that will set me free?

But what need for more apps? I have all I need. I can salvage this relationship, crowded with unnecessary impulses of the inane. I uninstall Google + mobile app, the phone creaking under the strain of tossing such a weighty app overboard. Sensing a brief burst in speed, I continue with Facebook, PlurQ, Hootsuite, and my phone flies, feeling almost new in my hands.

As I ponder the empty home screen, the lonely red O stares at me in shock, even though it does Google+ better than the mobile app. I decide that I cannot go Tweetless into the beyond, and install Tweetcaster for Android, then stumble across Friendcaster (Facebook app for Android). The apps are fast, work exceedingly well, and I wonder, why did I cling to the old ones so ardently? The new apps--Tweetcaster, Friendcaster--are new and improved.
