I just got back from watching "Fifty Shades of Grey" — the movie based on the hugely popular erotic novel about the BDSM relationship between 27-year-old Seattle billionaire Christian Grey and his college-student partner, Anastasia Steele.
And I'm really bothered by a glaring tech error in the film.
There's a scene in which Steele is in Georgia visiting her mom and stepdad. One night she begins texting Grey from her flip phone.
It appears that Grey is texting Steele from an iPhone 5S. The scene shows Grey's texts to Steele in a blue bubble. But this is so wrong.
The texts should appear in a green bubble because Steele is a non-iPhone user. The texts would appear in a blue bubble only if both participants were using iMessage, which is not the case because Steele has a cheap flip phone.
Also, the fact that Steele uses a flip phone is just ridiculous. In the movie, Grey bought her a new car to replace her old-school Volkswagen Beetle. He also gave her a MacBook to do "research" on BDSM. You would think that he would also update her phone situation.
We're not alone in being taken aback by the flip phone. People were going nuts about it on Twitter:
