Agreed, I suppose. Even so, I stand by that. Personally, I may be a little biased because of this as I am pretty into technology, but I find the lack of it in Twilight a little annoying in a way, although you wouldnt expect the characters to be on the computer, to be honest - they probably have better things to do.
I noticed Bella didnt have a ... cell/mobile phone (I always feel like I'm trying to speak two languages), but I guess she never really needed it. Was she provided one later? I can't recall because I spend half my time in fanfiction writing and dont recall the truth in it's exact form anymore...
Oh, and the room probably went purple to make give it all that much more suspense. If it was yellow, that of course, is a cheery colour which would totaly ruin the effects of Bella's pondering moments in her bedroom where she is thinking seriously and the such (though the character of Bella is pretty serious the whole way through. She seems to be missing a sense of humour here and there). I can see why it's been done, analyse it for you if need be, but I don't agree with it any more than you do. xD
