kddi_phonesTo say we live in a disposable society is an understatement especially in the US and a couple of other so called advanced countries. Every few months there is a new rumor about a new operating system for your computer or a new iPhone coming out or TV. But do you really need it? I mean look at cell phones do you really need a new one or do you buy it so you go to your friend look. Jeff doesn’t have an iPhone or tablet he still has an old laptop which he lets me use to write this blog and he lugs around a digital camera. First he likes the pictures he gets with the camera and he needs a full size key board to write with and with his eyes a seventeen inch screen is also necessary. Ruby has a tablet and now spends more time on line than ever before doing nothing. Jeff watches all his friends and relatives with smart phones texting and talking while you’re trying to have one of those old fashioned things called a conversation with them. But that isn’t the point the point is what’s so special about the new phone that you can’t live without it. I mean really is a new game apt worth junking your old phone and getting a new one. Now they’re coming out with smart watches and smart glasses. More stuff that once a new version comes out you’ll throw in a drawer never to use again. I know if we didn’t do this stuff the economy would be in trouble but if Jeff was to do this his economy would be in trouble. One more thing isn’t it funny when you walk through some poor neighbor hoods the kids have $150 Nike Air Jordan’s on and are listening to music with Beat head phones and either an iPhone or iPod. Well this is Flounder going to take a nap on an old T-shirt and listen to some 50’s music saying CIAO from Medellin Colombia one of the most wired cities in the world.
