The “I forgot my phone” video is even more disturbing since it was introduced back in 2013.
“I Forgot My Phone” will make you think twice this weekend
You see, the problem with how mobile phone technology has injected itself into our lives so thoroughly, is that most people cannot even recognize what it is doing to US, and society in general. We’ve become accustomed to having this multi-purpose device at our disposal 24 hours a day. Whether it’s for semi-useful things like checking the weather or using a calculator – to utterly unnecessary extra forms of “communication” (chatter with “friends,” seeing the whole world’s photos, comparing your lives with millions of other people, etc.) – the phone is pretty much not more than a minute away from being “checked.” This video “I forgot my phone” is fantastic. Watch it a couple times to see the point they’re trying to convey.
Besides just making hanging out “in person” so obviously “impersonal” – cell phones also allow people to put themselves in dangerous situations too (like texting while walking.)
Perhaps some of you can try to go an entire night with friends without updating your status, or checking into a location. Bet you can’t, and won’t.
This video also reminded me of a great cartoon my pal Ricardo Roig made a few years ago, called: “Dinner for Four.”
One of the movies opening this weekend is a comedy called Get Hard starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart.
“A comedy about a wrongfully convicted investment banker who prepares for prison life with the help of the man who washes his car.”
Now while most movies are just purely for entertainment and killing a few hours – what bugs me is the “tone” that is coming from some reviewers. Get a load of this statement: “Anyone with a low tolerance for politically incorrect stereotyping and lowbrow humor should sit this one out.”
I promise you more and more of this “trigger word” mentality along with “safe spaces” for SJW’s and their overly-sensitive pea brains is coming our way. While Huxley’s vision is more on target, Orwell had some truisms as well. Soon, you’ll be in trouble for your own private thoughts!
But as usual, we’ll check this out once it’s streaming (in HD).
Nearly six years to the day, Scottrade opened up at 114 Washington Street. And when we shared that “breaking news,” we asked if anyone actually had a need for a brick & mortar trading broker.
Now they’re doomed, and we are still puzzled why it took so long. Never saw a single person walk in or out of this place. Not even a homeless vestibule squatter!
Anyway, this 1600 square foot retail space just blocks from the PATH station can be had for a paltry $180,000 a year in rent. The brokers on this deal know – and they’re suggesting a doctor’s office or bank. That tells you where the money is these days, right?
