WHERE DID YOU PUT MY WATCH?

IT’S AMAZING HOW TECHNOLOGY INFLUENCES US.  IT HAS BEEN DOING SO AT SUCH A BREAK NECK SPEED THAT WE DON’T EVEN REALIZE IT.  

CASE AND POINT, TRY GOING TWENTY FOUR HOURS WITHOUT YOUR SMART PHONE AND SEE HOW IT FEELS.  WE’RE SO USED TO BEING PLUGGED INTO THE MATRIX OF E-MAIL AND FACEBOOK THAT WE OFTEN THINK THAT WE AREN’T IMPORTANT OR SPECIAL IF WE DON’T HAVE THESE THINGS.  WE SHOULDN’T THOUGH.  TO BE TRUTHFUL HAVING A SMART PHONE IS MORE OF A STATUS ICON THAN A NECESSITY OF LIFE.  

YOU KNOW  IT WASN’T ALL THAT LONG AGO THAT WE DIDN’T HAVE THEM AND WE MADE IT JUST FINE WITHOUT THEM.  IF WE NEEDED TO REMEMBER SOMETHING WE WROTE IT DOWN.  IF WE NEEDED TO KNOW THE TIME WE LOOKED AT OUR WRIST.  I THINK WE EVEN ACTUALLY LOOKED AT SOMEBODY WHEN WE SPOKE TO THEM FACE TO FACE BECAUSE THAT WHAT PEOPLE DID.  BUT THAT WOULD REQUIRE GETTING OUT OF THE HOUSE TO GO SEE THE PEOPLE WE CARE ABOUT.  BUT WHO DOES THAT MUCH ANYMORE RIGHT?

I ENJOY THE NEW THINGS THAT COME OUT DON’T GET ME WRONG.  BUT IN A WEIRD WAY I THINK THESE NEW GADGETS ARE MAKING US DUMBER INSTEAD OF SMARTER.  I THINK WE ARE LOSING SOMETHING BY NOT SOCIALIZING PERSON TO PERSON LIKE WE USE TO. 

BUT WHAT THE HELL DO I KNOW. MAYBE I JUST MISS MY IPHONE 🙂
