Harlequin Romance

In the perpetual battle of Apple versus PC, I am Switzerland.  I am neutral.  I own an Ipad Mini.  I own an HP Split with Windows 8.  I love both devices.  I am torn.  I cannot decide.  Now I know what it’s like to be a conflicted woman, like the ones in the pulpy novels.

The HP split is full of fun, flexible and doesn’t make me commit to any one way of doing things.  It’s always there.  It’s a PC and a tablet.  It’s whatever I need it to be at my convenience.  I got it with a plan from Verizon wireless.  I love thrumming its firm keys and telling it exactly what I need it to do.  Verizon Wireless has other great deals online too.  I feel so naughty when I go to the Verizon site, because it makes me feel so cheap.  I mean, after all, I get free shipping and $50 dollars off when I use the codes.  Perhaps I can even afford another toy from Verizon.

My old stand-by is my Ipad mini.  Sturdy, resilient, structured, I feel safe with the mini.  It fits snugly in my purse.  It always performs.  It’s always there when I need it.  With the iOs app store, I can have almost any app I can dream up.  T-Mobile makes it easy to stay with the mini too with its great data plans and free shipping on all orders.  Sometimes to spice up the relationship it’s worth spurging on a few accessories, don’t you think?  With free shipping on all orders, I may be able to get this marriage of convenience to work.

Left to my own devices, I can’t part with either device.  I love the fun of Windows 8 on my HP Split, but I crave the reliability of iOs, even if the exclusivity sometimes irks me.  Using the codes, I can have the best of both worlds, unlike those beleaguered women in tight corsets on the covers of Harlequin novels.
