Oh Carrie Bradshaw…

You insufferable technologically-challenged, post-modern, woman-first without being feminist, laughable woman you! Rumor has it that although you used an Apple computer during the entire run of the show (remember the time that one boyfriend who ISN’T the guy on Law and Order bought her a new computer, and she freaked out?! I do. See Julie, I DID watch the show – but the only guy character names I can remember are Mr. Big and Steve) – and on the current SATC Movie site, they highlight the fact that Carrie has a Macbook Pro (and even YOU, yes YOU can browse on Carrie’s Macbook Pro!) – BUT, we can’t lose the fact that she’s a “real person” who “just doesn’t get it” – according to textually.org

Carrie needs a phone on her wedding day and as an iPhone is handed to hear, she hands it back saying “I can’t work this!”

And of course that makes sense, because iPhones are IMPOSSIBLE to work. Just ask this 3 year old. At this point in the movie, I’m sure there’s a lot of tension because Carrie’s having second thoughts, and needs to call not-Mr. Big (can’t remember his name) and come clean about something or another, and this moment only makes her more endearing to the audience…
