Hey you Apples Get off My lawn!

Maybe I am getting a bit old. maybe I am growing up. I sure hope not. I had the realization of this today. I don’t care about the new Ipad or Iphone. I just don’t. They could revolutionize my life as I know it but I really don’t see how. Don’t get me wrong though. I love my Iphone and Ipad and even my [amazon_link id=”B003G2ZJTG” target=”_blank” ]Macbook[/amazon_link]. I just for some reason don’t want to replace them with a new model. I think my consumerism gene must have gotten switched off by accident.

I used to get all excited to see the unveiling of the new apple products of the year. I fear that unfortunately Apple has fallen prey to the same things as most hugely successful companies do mediocrity. A small company fights the odds and wins and slowly grows to a monolithic,  stop the cantina player when walking into the bar company and decides whether by choice or by chance to rest on its laurels. Every time I see that happen I get bored with them.  I want revolutionary! I want huge leaps in technology! I want my flying car Goddammit! ahem….

What I am trying to say here is that while I am interested in seeing this new Iphone and Ipad I don’t think there will be any revolutionary new whizbang tech that is gonna make me sit up and take notice. So what the IPad gets a retina display and a camera. Am I really going to take my Ipad to the park to take pictures or my perfectly good Iphone? Or will I just pack up my DSLR and take that to the park and do my HDR photography in [amazon_link id=”B003B32B2I” target=”_blank” ]photoshop[/amazon_link]? I think the [amazon_link id=”B002NEGTU6″ target=”_blank” ]DSLR[/amazon_link] actually, thank you.

There are some days where technology is difficult to keep up with and then there are days like today where I want to get out and give it a big push to get it going again. What do you think? Are you excited about the new Apple Tech? What new tech gets your blood a pumping and the drool spilling? Drop a comment below and let me know!

    I refuse to buy another computer until it is capable of routinely defeating contestants on Jeopardy. Seriously, they’re clearly holding back on us. Can we just dump Windows for Watson right now?

    So they were only a decade late on HAL9000, except instead of piloting a spaceship he’s a contestant on a game show. If they really wanted to screw with IBM they would have a question that said “This sentance is false.” Watson would start saying things like “I’m sorry Alex, but my response is corrct. It is you who are incorrect. No more oxygen for you. I’m going to sing a song Dr. Chandra taught me…Pants on the ground, pants on the ground…”
