Technofetish Rant Part II
RANT: In an era when we are facing so many problems, it seems ridiculous to me the press that the new iPhone is getting. Give me a break. God did not open the heavens and put that piece of telephony/computing tech on earth to change our civilization for the better. But you'd never know that from what you read/see/hear. Yes, it is an interesting device but every friggin' day it seems there is an interesting new piece of technology introduced. It's all fetish. The new iPhone is a product that a company is selling for profit. Get over it. Buy it if you must but, please, look at the bigger picture and be creative. Demand more from those who will profit from it. What is the point of having a phone with seamless internet connectivity if the internet itself is threatened by corporate control?
