Sadly, this column is NOT about me and Peter Dinklage on a road trip where we learn valuable life lessons. OK, that would probably be pretty cool (“He’s a Project Manager! He is constructing a house entirely out of Emmys! They’re on a trip to wackiness!”), but no, Dinklage is my phone.
I got a Droid Razr Max HD, and since it’s small and powerful and gorgeous, I nicknamed it Dinklage for obvious reasons.
The phone has taught me some valuable lessons. Without a road trip. I share them because this phone is an example of buying a personal device based on what my friend Doug calls “Use Cases” – what we want to do and what we buy or make to address it. In turn there’s a lot of lessons for technology and those of us who use it and work in it.
