White Kids Without iPads

 

Where is the Charity?

Watching some of those commercials on TV about children living in poverty or some war torn third world nation pulls at your heart strings. These charitable foundations that produce the commercials are counting on that “emotional” tug to get you to write that check to help out those less fortunate than you. And it doesn’t have to be for children. Animals, specifically dogs and cats that are abused, mistreated or left in shelters where you know they will eventually be euthanized, can evoke gut wrenching emotions from the billions of animal lovers. But in my mind nothing compares to the plight of…  White Kids Without iPads.

You see it on every playground, in the malls, in the libraries, in the classrooms on the bus and subway and riding in the back of the family van. Kids with that far away blank look. Holding onto some ancient relic of a cell phone that perhaps only ( wait for it ) sends and receives phone calls…no text. Yes, I know. Brutal, sadistic and some would call it inhuman…those poor white kids without an iPad. It boggles the mind. Where are their parents?  Where is their dual core processor heart?

Till death do us part

Remember when men and women of all ages would walk hand-in-hand everywhere they went. You just don’t see that happening as much anymore and for good reason. It is difficult to hold hands while holding your iPhone or Android smart phone and texting or using the latest App. Sure your partner may inadvertently grab for your free hand but that urge to keep it available for the next Facebook post, or to respond to a tweet or watch your friends cat do something funny on YouTube, is always there. It is almost palpable. And besides, sometimes you need the other hand to hold your iPad.

I recently wrote a blog that asked the question, “Would you exist if there were no Facebook or Twitter or the other social media forums or if you had no hand held digital devices like smart phones or tablets?” The responses were astonishing. One would have thought I asked them if they wanted to be locked up in prison for the rest of their lives. Is it possible we have become so attached to these “instant messaging” machines that any type of human contact is no longer necessary? Is there an App for that?

Ask me no questions I’ll tell you no lies

Siri is the latest addition to the iPhone 4S. Push the microphone icon on the bottom of the iPhone and ask it anything….I mean anything and it will either provide you with an answer or give you an appropriate response.  Google (Android) is working on their version and it will be available soon. Of course, this new feature eliminates using your fingers to type in a search term on the best available browser app on your iPhone. It also means you can now have one hand free to do anything you want….even hold hands with your phone mate.
