I just didn’t believe it at the time. I don’t know why. Some thing about a balding ‘caesar type’ character aka. Ron Moss telling me, that’s right telling me that I would be using only a card to pay for things electronically.
Then on top of that telling me that I would be possibly getting to work on a jet pack and that we would do all work once at work on ‘personal computers’. Pffffft. What ever Ron Moss. If that is your real name. I suppose you are also going to tell me that there is no prototype hover board and that michael j fox was held up by strings. Yep. What ever.
Now I typing this on a tablet pc with more intuitive thought than most of the life guards at Sydney Olympic park and better design (totally arguable and just for emotional value and not my honest opinion) than Raymond Kappe and Frank Lloyd Wright put together actually no, I went too far. ‘Fallingwater’ cannot be beaten.
iPad is amazing. We have just purchased the iPad 2 after selling our quad core intel pentium core 2 q6600.
I am very happy with this choice.
With it went a 22″ screen. Why did we need a 22″ screen in the first place? Who knows? Prob just cause the man said and 22″ is better than 10″ right?
Now we have no wires. Not even from our modem router to the media centre (still AMD) now with six terabytes because it became surrogate for the drives donation from the HP but still ver much needed.
God help the world when apple catch up and invent a useable wireless NAS that is as easy to plug and play as me syncing photos between iPad and iPhone in 3 taps.
This simplicity is what the world needs. I don’t care that I am locked in, restricted to millions of apple only apps. Nor do I care that I can’t get turn by turn for free hacked. Nor do i care that I have to use iTunes as the host for iPhone and iPad. What I care about is when I want to use my iPhone as a phone it is just and only that. When it is a camera it is just and only that. But when you reach inside it’s magic hat of tricks the rabbit your pull out is not white. It is every colour you want and more.
I just saying iPad 2 is probably even better than I thought it would be. More functional than a pc on a non intricate level. My whole family can use it. Even the smallest 17months old. And I know for a fact her Nanny will be able to use it.
This really did turn into a rant. Wow sorry.
What I am trying to say is the rare occasion I do carry cash and the rare time at work where I do use a wire connected device to access the internet and the rare rare times I do use a skate board with wheels makes me think. Ron Moss I am so sorry. Your were just so right. About everything. We even have GPS. And it is inside our phones which are wireless. Crazy. Absolutely crazy. I just rang our children’s grandparents with a video phone last night on in electronic device not as big as a warehouse and it was with video feed and only slightly bigger than a piece of paper.
I am sorry for all the times I said “yeah right, sure Ron Moss sure well have reversing cameras in our cars”.
Technology is amazing. People should take a little more time to understand it. I think that is what is holding it back. The haters if you will. Just embrace it. I know all you “67.5ers” love those forward emails. And that’s all twitter is smaller faster versions of forward email, a current affair, a good mews channel, and the police scanner.
I have just ranted and raved and done all sorts of poor analogies and 3rd person speaking and I haven’t even mention technology’s beautiful design. That would of course be a post on it’s own.
