Right this moment I lie in a net of white cables running around me haphazardly and some way or the other obstructing my desire to move about. There’s a sleek brick of metal and glass on my left with its white electrical tail running across my stomach into the mother-of-em-all, Mother Mac.
While she draws from her monstrous tail, with a little bludgeon sort of (hot) cube dangling dangerously that is passing around my thighs sort of wrapping me in my comforter and most of all, restricting my legs while I seem to be a part of this metallic and wiry baffled sight by a loop of sound created by two noisy tentacles that are speaking in to my ear… The Entrancing Earphonies, who by the way have a better half. The elder son from Ma-Mac, a much more polished speaker now though: The iPot Classico who is currently receiving MY Music and MY Visuals from Ma-Mac as he dazes into nothingness and keeps saying – ‘SINK-ing’, just spelled differently… Fool!
I am right now bound to think of a possible classic debate (or not) that, What is this ‘fruit-name’ bearing Incorporate upto?
Is Apple trying to sell a feeling of liberation to its users:
- a PC User breaks out of the clan to experience the exotic Macintosh.
- The Phone User gets to use a Phone with NO KEYS. (How the hell did he come up with THAT!?).
- And Multi-media, your sounds & music, in one Smoke Case Size Tablet…
and more of it’s extremely indulging gadgets…which actually let you handle your data with your fingertips and oh so smoothly!
Is Apple sucking on your freedom by acting as a pawn to a bigger Beast, One Level Higher, and making us completely addicted and dependent on this convenient Killer even more | Technology?
Personally, I have felt the pangs go deeper ever since the ‘White Knight’ has coaxed me into ‘Better Tech Land’ and my realization of severely reduced ‘span of attention’ and ’empty memory space’ has me worried and wanting for continuous supply of stimulus, of different kinds though, due to lack of a certain kind of focus.
I am afraid that the age of the Ape may return sooner with more shiny toys, toys that could talk faster, listen sharper, solve quicker, show bigger and feel stronger. They will bring back and perhaps complete the cycle of human evolution.
From a user Point of View I urge you to think about the direction we are headed in…
Are you willing to BYTE in?
Would you put your WORD out here or just jot a POWER POINT in your notebook?
Feel free to share your opinions on the matter and consider me a fellow passenger as I too escalate to the depths | a Digital Demise.
For better or worse | shall reflect from your words…
