I’m writing this blog while waiting for the bus. I have, after many years, finally joined Legion and purchased a smartphone.
On the bus now.
Having this much information at my fingertips now is paralyzing. Do I watch a movie? Do I tweet a picture of the meal I’m eating at a fancy restaurant? Do I use the GPS to find a quicker way home?
I have the entire goddamn internet wherever I go now. There’s so much power a simple smartphone.
And I’m a little sad, because I know it’s only a matter of time before it becomes commonplace.
At the very least, I hope I can always appreciate the fact that I’ll never be lost again. Which happens more often than I care to admit.
Anyway, I’m going to do my best to treat this technology with the reverence it deserves while I an still appreciate it.
Time to play some Angry Birds.
