No the economy is so bad because manufacturing has been out sourced , The banks and corporations are taking free tax money for their efforts of
ripping off it's customers . has nothing really to do with smart phones that are manufactured anywhere but in the usa.
Also I really hate voice mail seeing how many people will listen to the message just to hang up after they hear a beep .
I really don't get about peoples dislike about technology no one is forcing them to use it.
You are so right...no one is forcing us to use it.. its just that people are interacting more with machines and less with "people" Its HARDER to
reach people because of about 20 or more different constant and ever changing technology. Oh, and people are depending on technology (and getting
dumber every day!)
Young people today DO NOT WANT TO WORK.. this is a whole other thead.. (Not all but MANY young consider "working" something that interferes with
thier video games) Many of my 50 year old friends and neighbors have "failure to launch" kids living with them.... (I have 2 my self! 21 and 28!) If
anyone is under 30..ask your self How many of your friends are living with their parents?
Don't blame the economy.. when I was 18 LIVED ON MY OWN I had 1 full time job.. 2 part time jobs a car and paid for my own apartment.. Then I
started community college ( I saved and paid for) and wend to just 2 jobs....
"in the good old days" (eyes roll gasp oh no!) People would return calls, speak to you and interact with you. I am pointing out that its getting
harder and harder to reach people..When email first came out ( early 80's?) I thought this is it.....Then SPAM was born!
Now there are "CAPTCA" forms and I have to type in "funky gibberish" of nonsense just to get an email to someone or fill out several screens of
information, wade though surveys or pop up blockers....!
The REAL days of people talking to people are gone.. Its now social networking and I reject it all together.
I know that the jobs are overseas, and people are being "downsized" companies are closing.. When the currency is all revalued (we hope) or there is
a global crash (hope not) maybe the world will balance out.
The GOOD news is that once most jobs go away.. and money is not a problem.. people will "wake up" and realise they are free to pursue their own
interests.. It will happen one day...
Until then... I just remember when people talked to people and NOT gadgets and machines....
