The future is here?

You are spending time on the computer- reading news, updating your status, searching information, playing games...even reading this blog. Then you go outside but wait- you have to take your mp3 player along, also dont forget your phone! You might want to update your facebook when you are driving your car, what belongs to bank, actually.

I have nothing against gadgets but do we really need all that? Do we really need a smartphone what has 9009 functions? Well, some people think they do but jeez, shut the fuck up about how great your new app on your new iphone is. Nobody cares that you can check weather on your desktop IN CHINESE!!!!1!1one
Also, i really dont get the concept of some huge-ass tablets like iPas or aPad. Lets say, you have a nice, functioning laptop, but it has touch screen. Prety neat, eh, you can draw and stuff. Cool. Thank god i have a keyboard, a decent battery and all the ports i need. Now imagine that you dont- you have a horribly mutilated device with what you can check email and watch movies WHILE YOU ARE ON THE MOTHERFUCKING ROAD! How cool is that? Have you ever tried using a small touch keyboard? Whats wrong with netbooks? They can do all that tablets can and even more. They dont have a touch screen, so what? Do you need it so badly?
20 years ago computers were as portable as skyscrapers and touch screens were considered as witchcraft. people were happy then too. Instead of developing more powerful and efficient computers, companies make useless pieces of shit called tablets. I dont want one and im sick that these are forced on people. Also making them is a huge waste of materials.

Okay, so you like all the technical improvements and stuff but im sick of people bragging about their new stuff. Go fuck a giraffe!
I dont want the improvements to be forced on me, like apple does.
Apple releases new products quite often, thats great. But by that they render all previous ones (which tend to be better) obsolete and take them off from sale. When I want a functioning iPod nano (1st, 3rd and 4th generation), i cant have one by just walking to an Apple store and buying one. And the new ones are just crap. Do you know, how easy it is to break an iPod touch or iPhone? Also, if you dont like the new itunes because it has eliminated some options on your trusty iPod classic what you bought about a year ago, then good luck getting old itunes back. It's as comfortable as getting an anal probe.

Conclusion: technical improvements are not bad but they shouldnt be forced on people, especially by rendering previous systems obsolete. Also, more and more useless gadgets are products are produced every day, draining the earth's resources, so when we really need to build something, we dont have the resources.

I'm happy with my 21" CRT tv, 2 year old laptop, even older phone and not-so-popular ipod. Whats the point of getting new ones?

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT USELESS GADGETS?

  2. lol I loved the comic :) also I love iPhone and I hate old people because they are just stupid and they are bahaving like the world turns around them... when I will be old (if I will be) I will know that I am not the best driver if I go 20kmh on a highway and just slowly go into intersections without looking then stoping the whole traffic

  4. Naj: im not talking only about iphones and stuff. Old, but perfectly working standards and platforms are turned obsolete, thus forcing the consumer to buy new crappy products.

    Advantage-player: i'm not hating iphones, but the apple's policies

  8. 90% of gadgets are just shit, useless junk that won't be around for very long. that's what gadgets are, it's not really about progressing our lives with new technology, it's just using the notion of 'new' to market the idea of better living to people, but in reality that's all it is.

  16. well, it's all about money, some people who have old ipods will buy the new ones if they will see someone who has them ;)

  17. Eh, Im good with the budget version of anything to be honest. Or doing it all ghetto like. Like instead of hooking an mp3 player into my car, since I dont have one, I just drag my laptop along and use it instead XD

  30. Great comic, and I completely agree with you. With all these functions, people seem to have forgotten that cell phones were created be to used as phones.

  31. It's getting out of control. We need to banish electronics before they rise up against humanity.

  32. Lol. You should watch this short movie called The Story of Stuff. Basically it's about how American's have been turned into consumers and how everything is so wasteful. You can watch it on youtube, it goes pretty good with your blog post.

  33. I don't replace anything until it's so broken it would cost more to fix it rather than just get a new one. Hell, I got yelled at by my own father because I bought a iPod Touch (only bought it because my Zune was lost for 2 months) instead of an iPhone. I don't need that shit, I'm happy with my 3 year old phone that I have 3 other copies of since SOMEONE had to buy someone else a smart phone and another smart phone when the previous smart phone was lost.

  34. Good rant. I sure hope that tablets and the like won't be replacing laptops.

  35. haha, creating more technology and enhancement will be the end of us all!!
