There are just some things a tablet computer cannot do and shame on you for thinking otherwise. Please remove yourself from the high resolution screen for a moment and count to ten. This may be hard for you to accept at first. Now breathe and repeat after me – I am a tech junkie. They say the first step is admitting that you have a problem and yes, I understand the irony of using a computer to get my point across. Bear with me. It will be over soon enough.
Things were much simpler back then, for those lucky enough to remember, when a hand written letter meant how much we cared for someone. Today, that romanticism is gone and replaced by email and text messages. Should we blame the gurus of the tech world for this travesty? It is because of them that we are left to fend for ourselves in this digital realm, armed with just a personalized notepad and a floppy disk.
In an ideal world there should be a balance between humans and machines. I guess all those sci-fi films had it right all along. Ask yourself this question: are we at the point of being controlled by an evil network of machines? Well, I will have to ask my iPhone because my kindle seems to be on the fritz. Get with the times, dude! For all those who still take pen to paper you are what the current generation calls: not-so-tech-savvy. What can I say – the current generation isn’t too witty.
The great thinkers and writers of the past didn’t have any other alternative but to write everything down. What’s funny about the human condition is that the latest high tech gadget can only keep us entertained for so long. As soon as the next update arrives we are quickly moved to get it. But do we actually get it? Only the tech gods know.
Notepads were once called diaries, journals, and manuscripts. Now they are called blogs and web entries. There is nothing wrong with going back to how things were. Try organizing your life with a custom printed desk slab, you might discover something new about yourself or someone else that you didn’t read on a status update.
