And isn't it handy that people are getting all of their latest "technology" through their phones?
I mean, most people do everything through their mobile.
I for one didn't need much persuading to not carry a cell. They cause cancer, first and foremost.
Secondly, I don't like being a slave to people's curiosity.
I mean sure, if I go hiking or something and I'm going to be out of touch, I'll carry a cell in case I need to get a CALL out to people in case of
And I know the arguments, "but my cellphone gives me access to people at all times."
Great, but just who is it that you are giving access to?
Yeah, your loved ones, sure. But also, as this story relates, big brother. But we've all known that.
And in truth, most people use the thing to update their facebook and further dissolve the art of social interation by even neglecting to pick up the
damned phone at all to have an actual conversation with someone and instead use it to "text message" people.
Text messaging is the biggest sham of a thing I have ever seen.
Sure, once you learn to manipulate the keypad like a keyboard, it is handy, I suppose. But what are you doing in the meanwhile?
I have friends who have been dear to me for years who I have stopped keeping in touch with all together because the ONLY way they communicate with
other people is through facebook and text.
Sure, this may be the way of the future, but count me out. I still like to SPEAK to people.
And I choose not to do so with a mobile tracking device, if I can help it.
Call me paranoid...
I call it privacy.
