I think we all look silly with these decreasing-in-size mechanised gadgets. For all you dieters out there, forget the Atkins, just go and have a word with Apple! The pounds would drop off. My point is, our shelves are now bookless, and or kitchen tables are morning paperless and we have sites such as Twitter and Facebook to discourage the idea of reading a great classic or well…getting to know our neighbours. Heck even as I type facebook into good old Microsoft Word, it underlines it with a green squiggle…Oh silly me…capital F for Facebook. And don’t forget the capital P following the lower case i for iPod! Punctuation people! Will this be a new rule in our native languages? Letters that were Latin are now being dictated to us by apple. A is for apple after all, but will this now have different connotations to the trusty fruit that keeps the doctor away? 'Apple, yeah it's a fruit init?' ... 'Nah it's an American multinational corporation that designs and markets consumer electronics, computer software and personal computers.'
I feel sorry for the new gen kids, being hypnotised and hoaxed by all these new techs. Lets shove it into the kids’ hands at the first sign of boredom or the initial trigger of a tantrum. Kids are in the back seat playing with iPads rather than looking at what’s out the window. Don't you miss the ‘are we there yets’ and ‘where are we goings?’ All things bright and beautiful are being replaced by all things 3g and technological. Bring back the tradition I say. Hypocritical of me as I type this blog on my Laptop, to put onto the world wide web, when I could be using an actual pen to write down on an actual piece of paper..hmmph.
