The iPhone……”I’ Indeed……We are Losing the Concept of ‘WE’….and Quickly!

texting coupleI was out this week and I saw a young couple at a table in a restaurant.  They were both speaking to each other but more than “half-an-eye” was on the hand-held phone device as they ‘spoke’ to each other.

Do you have that visual in your head?

Now ask yourself where are you on that rungs of modern technology.  I have come to the conclusion that the “i” in these devices, iPhone, iTablet, etc is more than just a name…’s a full-blown philosophy…….and “I” am not sure that it’s a good place to be.  And just because something is called an Android is no release—–the generic term has become iPhone

We can surely discuss the safety factor and STILL-TO-THIS-DAY people, all ages, are not heeding the warnings being yelled, no; SCREAMED from the mountain tops how stupid it is to ‘do anything’ of the sort while driving.  “It will just be a second” becomes “It just killed me” more often than people believe…..but are now finding out.  iDead.

This world of ‘i” will surely take its toll.  We have become a society that has become so attached to a device that I can, with 100% certainty, inform you that we did well without for over 2000 years.  Nice to have? You bet.  Saved lives? Absolutely.  But we cannot blind ourselves that the iPhone has internalized many, many people.  The attention given has created an unseen wall where many withdraw.  THAT device, as good as it COULD be, is getting the upper hand in too many lives.

It is not a wePhone for a reason.  And as people continue to bury their face in a device to do whatever it is that they find more important, interesting, or entertaining than the person they are with, the faster we take another step from becoming completely isolated from others around us.

I saw a young adult using their phone and they were speaking into it; I was informed that the device was taking their voice and turning it into a text message.  I asked the person why they didn’t just call and speak to the person.  The answer; “…..why would I do that?  I don’t want to speak with them, I want to text them.”

iThink iDevices iAre iGetting iThe iUpperhand.

Wanna see a 5G iphone???

I cannot legally tell you that this is a picture of the iphone 5g. I cannot tell you that this is a comparative picture with what will become the old iphone 4g. I cannot tell you that a media date has been chosen for the media to convene for a very new announcement by the end of this month. I cannot tell you that a security guard saw this lying on a desk in some executive’s office and sent me a picture (legally: they didn’t).

I cannot tell you for sure if there was a leak on what the new 5g iphone would actually look like and that it never would have happened when Steve Jobs was alive. All of this is ‘just for fun’, right?. 😉

I can tell you that I never owned an ‘anyG’ iphone but that will change when the 5 comes out. I can also tell you that if you have ever shopped for any of the Apple Products, they are all under one ‘roof’ for you to browse and decide on whatever you want to buy.

This got me to thinking.

With all of the new and exciting down loads, apps, widgets, phone-ready-meters, and gizmos having to do with diabetes—someone should create the ‘D-Store’ as a website so all of these items are in one place for people with an interest in diabetes to browse and pick and choose just like an Apple Store where I can tell you that the 5g iphone is not legally ready for sale.

Perhaps someday they both will be realized. I am a diabetes dad.
