I’d say I’m pretty okay with technology. In fact, I’d say I know more than the average person my age (which is to say, “I got nothin’ on the 15 year olds, but I can teach my parents a thing or two about hooking up their computer”). But there are some parts of technology that I’m pretty “meh” about, and sorry, I’ll probably never use. Here are a few:
Foursquare--Broadcast my location anytime, anywhere? Nah, no thanks. Sometimes I just don’t want people to know where I am. Okay fine. MOST OF THE TIME I don’t want people to know where I am.
A killer sound system--Um, does it play the music and the sound? Can it make the music and the sound go louder or softer? Cool. Done.
A tiny movie screen that fits in the palm of my hand--I don’t want to watch movies on my phone. I don’t want to watch TV on my phone. I would like to text on my phone and ignore calls from my mother on my phone. That's it. (I don’t really ignore calls from my mother, but if I did, that’s all I’d do on my phone.)
A self-cleaning catbox--While this advance would be nice, these kind of catboxes are still not safe (my brother’s cat got caught in one. It was awful). And lord knows, with MY cats they’d be all like, “OH GOD, IT’S MOVING” and then pee on my fresh basket of laundry instead.
A super nice wine fridge--Why store your wine when you can DRINK it?
What technological advances do you not embrace?
