My wife and I broke down the other day and got ourselves some smart phones. But it turns out that the phones really aren’t all that smart.
My phone couldn’t learn even the simplest of dog tricks like roll over, beg or fetch. It does however stay with amazing non-agility.
It didn’t take long for us to find ourselves downloading apps. Reading apps. Game apps. Navigation apps. Productivity apps.
I suddenly knew what it felt like for Columbus, opening your eyes one morning and discovering a new world.
Well, almost exactly like that, except that I didn’t get to destroy civilizations, steal riches or brutalize and enslave any Indians.
Anyway, for the five or six people out there who don’t know what an app is, it’s short for ‘application,’ a program that runs on your smart phone.
Apps are the brains of smart phones. You can buy apps to manage your finances, to calculate home energy usage, to give you beauty tips. There are apps for cooking, for education, for photography, for news and weather, for sports, for travel. If you can imagine it, there’s an app for it.
And therein lies the problem. People can imagine quite a bit!
