I don’t have an iPhone but I can tell you that hipstamatic app is making me crazy. Pictures were crap in the 70s, tell me again why I want them to look like that on purpose?Hell, I’ve got a whole box of crap, over-exposed, under-exposed, yellowed, scratched, stained photos from my parents. INSTANT HIPSTAMATIC! Dangit, get an SLR.
I want a Kindle.
I still don’t get Twitter. So I guess I’ll never get more than ten people reading this because apparently you have to Tweet incessantly for anyone to read your blog.
Speaking of Tweeting, you can now take courses in SOCIAL MEDIA! Like, they now hire people to use Twitter, Facebook and blogs! Dang, I could be getting paid for goofing off on the Internets!
Someday, when I grow up, I’m gonna get me a real, live grown-up phone (with a qwerty keyboard!). Like a crackberry. But I don’t get touch phones, smartphones, etc. They are a pain in the arse to use.
iPhones aren’t great phones. But they do have an app for that.
I think I’m starting to understand the purpose of netbooks. It’s so I look smart and hip and stuff at coffee shops, which usually have free wifi. And overpriced coffee.
Handsfree devices are useful for driving while talking, I s’pose. I’m more of a “shut up and drive” person. Plus, have you ever had a conversation with someone driving and speaking through their car’s bluetooth? ANNOYING. It’s like being on speaker phone. Just sayin’.
Now, if I’m gonna indulge and get any of this stuff, I should probably think about getting a watch first. But why bother, when cell phones have a clock? There will never, ever be an excuse for being late again. Hear that, teenagers?
Now I sound like an old person. GET OFF MY LAWN! DANG KIDS AND THEIR NEW-FANGLED DEVICES! But I s’pose it’s time to admit that times are a changin’ and we might as well change them, or risk being outta the loop, eh?
