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!
