Diagonal: Actually, even the phone is far more than I really need. All I really need in a phone is the ability to call numbers, remember numbers, store numbers, keep a calendar, and have a GPS (maybe five times a year?). What all that other stuff is for I have no idea. Why send text messages? Why not just call and actually talk to someone. To me texting has an underlying premise, "You are important enough for me to pester but not important enough for me to call and talk to. You're basically some kind of flopping appendage that needs occasional attention.

It's not technology's fault that you don't understand what different forms of communication are for or how to use them effectively. There is an order of precedence. A phone call means "I need to discuss this right now, preempting whatever you're doing right this second." A text means, "At your next opportunity..." An email means, "When you get a chance..." Texts and email are also a quick way to transfer precise information. Phone number, address, part number, instructions, etc. A voice call is great when you want to discuss something that has a lot of interaction like telling mom about your trip to Disneyland with the kids or asking the wife how her day was. But it's not necessary to interrupt a buddy just to ask if they want to meet at the bar after work or to say, "Poker night is on. My place at 7."

The guy at the brewery who's job it is to co-ordinate shipping and receiving with the distribution companies and such has a custom app for inventory, tracking and management on his tablet and con communicate with the file servers anywhere in the complex with it built in bar code scanner so as to bring up the appropriate SKU, send off E-mails to the appropriate people as he see's fit, and look at porn.

Crunch61: I still have a cell phone that's just a cell phone and all my TVs are CRTs. They work just fine. Why replace them?

/what do you do with a used 150-pound CRT TV anyway?


A nice open area, 2 pounds of tannerite and a high velocity rifle. That is what you do with a 150 pound CRT when it finally breaks down.
