“Dear All Technology, Remember the 90’s when you just WORKED??? I don’t need a ‘smart’ feature on my TV, thermostat, lights, music, refrigerator, security cameras, and f-ing car. You’re a major pain in all of our asses. You’re not worth it. Signed, Everyone.” – 12:10 PM · Jan 7, 2019
Alas, Chris, you can’t reason with technology any more than you can reason with politicians, toddlers, rap singers and angry felines. Someone once told me technology was only as smart as the people using it. I promptly retorted that technology was only as smart as the people who designed it. And, since most of us who use technology are actually smarter than most of those who design it, we’re all trapped in a vicious cycle of circuitous frustration.
