Man, that Steve Jobs is lucky; iPhone currently accounts for over 40% of Apple's revenue, and they're about release iPhone 4. Aw man, it's so sweet. Video conferencing in the palm of your hands, HD recording and screen, and sleeker sexier model. No I don't work for Apple. I can't wait to get my iPhone 3GS upgraded to the iOS4, in order to take advantage of multitasking. Anyone interested in iPhone 4, or iOS4?
Hello Victor. Yes it is amazing what information in your hand will allow. Yesterday I was commuting on Dart in Dallas and notice what I thought was a bit unusual. I for one have always been fascinated by that which surrounds me and have always loved to observe all that was in that environment. Very few of my fellow commuters where even looking up as they were kind of obsessed in looking down at their hand held contraptions!? I thought "what is wrong with this picture"? There was little conversation among them either.
If the adage is true "If you don't use it, you will lose it" considering all of what we seem to think is important is in that little contraption, do you thing we will lose our ability to observe and speak in the real world? It seems we don't even talk anymore to each other and all our time is transfixed on those contraptions, television, computers, and hand helds. Will we lose our sense of "other people" and our ability to communicate with each other.
I actually interrupted a few and believe it or not that actually looked relieved, ha! "Did someone actually speak to me" HELLLLLLLO! Ha!
