Here’s a list of things that were previously excruciating but no longer are because I own an iPhone:

1. Waiting in the doctor’s office

2. Waiting for my girlfriend to get ready before leaving to go out anywhere

3. Meetings that are inefficiently managed or a complete waste of time

4. Waiting for long periods of time on subway platforms

5. Finding venues in the city

6. Awkward conversations with strangers

7. Online banking

8. Quickly securing dinner reservations on the fly

9. Managing shopping lists

10. Following threads of text messages

There might be more, but these 10 were on my mind today.
