Now, I do not live on a boat or caravan, neither am I a member of the MOD or Her Majesty's Government. I have a top of the range iMac at home which is constantly updated with all the fresh gizmos, etc, and I have a camera which is about the size of a half house-brick, which has 4 mega pixels, unlike most mobile phones which are around 12. I have a mobile phone which sends and receives calls and messages, and it has a couple of games on it, called 'snakes', which I never use. It has a colour screen for some reason. It suits me fine.
So we were reading the papers, and I noticed that there were many offers for smart phones, which included FREE icons which you could use - for instance - to find out where your nearest branch of Starbucks is, or what the cinema has to show you.
The people that subscribe to this (expletive deleted) are (expletive deleted) as far as I can make out - actually PAYING to have Starbucks send you a map via satellite, just so you can go and spend £4 on a cup of coffee with them???
There is something really disturbing going on with modern technology right now, to the detriment of ordinary social life.
Thank God that the iPad does not seem to want to connect with anything beginning with www. - I can't say I blame it. That's what iCall REAL Artificial Intelligence.
