The Joy of Tech
Got to love modern tech devices. Yeah. Just as well you’ve got the tech savvy to you know what’s going on. What’s good and what sucks. Modern technology promises the freedom you never dreamed of - probably because you never dreamt you'd be bloody stuck constantly charging flat batteries. But, your laptop and phone are fantastic. Cost a fortune but talk about convenient! How did you live without them?
Phones are so indispensable, they go with us everywhere. Even the toilet. According to Plaxo back in 2011, one in five people drop their phone into the toilet. I guess it's not deliberate just to see what happens. That wouldn't be smart. But either way, if it happened you'd probably want to hold the phone a bit further away from your face. Not nice.
Yeah, it's shocking really. Laptops and phones are everywhere and people just zone out. They stop noticing where they are and just lose all track of time. Like the bloke in the photo glued to the couch in a darkened room. Probably fed up bombing out at Candy Crush. Or, trying to get his act together for his eight thousandth go at Tetris for the day. See what I mean? Just shows we've never had it so good!
And it wasn't like people were doing anything important before handheld phones and laptops were they? No way. Just going for walks with each other, ringing friends up, coming round to see people and meeting up for a chat. Appalling. Then, people would go out, talk to new people, read a book on the bus, or just think stuff. Weird huh?
You can see how we've adapted to get over it and frankly, I'm proud. Yep, people in their millions are wandering through life now, bumping into lamp posts, crossing the road in front of cars, and just having a good time. Like the girl yesterday on the train arguing with her boyfriend ("Nic"). Talking 25 decibels above the train noise, the whole carriage heard about why he was was a dog, why she never two timed him (though she admitted it later, but it was a one off and she was drunk), and why he owes her big time.
This shows how phones can bring more people together. We wouldn't have known all about Nic. Or, how she got a nasty rash from him last Saturday. Proof positive that technology is lifting our game!
