Technology is one of those few things I give up on before I even try. Every day some new company comes out with some new fin-fangle gadget that the majority of the population feels they can’t live without. Not that there’s anything horribly wrong with that (a few of the people I care the most about fall into this category), but here are a couple reasons why I never will never be that person.
1. At the rate at which technology becomes obsolete, I really don’t see the point in even trying to keep up. Why throw away a perfectly good cell phone just because it’s not the latest and greatest model?
2. I have a computer, a cell phone, and an ipod. I therefore do not need a gadget that’s all of those things in one.
3. In the inevitable event that society breaks down, the world comes to an end, and we are all attacked by zombies, is your iphone going to save you? The answer is no. Because at that point there will be no electricity and so once the battery dies, that’s the end of that. The most effective thing your gadget can be used for is to throw at the zombie and hope you daze them long enough to run away. But even then that trick only works once, unless you’re really willing to go and ask the zombie for your iphone back.
