I was reading through some of the training material at work and came across the phrase "Rule 34 is an internet meme that states that if it exists, there is porn of it. No exceptions."

Oprah x Whoopi Goldberg

To quote a film:
Quote
Everybody wants to see anybody fuck. I hate Rosie O'Donnell, but if someone said, "I got a tape of Rosie O'Donnell getting fucked stupid,"I'd be like, "Why aren't we watching that right now?!"

Sometimes I see commercials for tablets on Youtube. Because I don't have ads disabled.

I like how consumer technology's just an evolutionary arms race selecting for form over function. Repeating: the future is boring.

I still don't know why tablets caught on so much.  Using a computer is infinitely better.  I have a Kindle and the only time I use it is to quickly look up a walkthrough if I'm playing a game, and that's only because it's conveniently right there and quicker to start.  Actually I guess I do know why they're popular; it's because people have gotten so lazy...

Ever try using a computer in a car ride? Or on a busy street corner? Or a restaurant? Or anywhere that isn't your bedroom or starbucks? Yeah, computers are better from a performance standpoint, but functionality and versatility are today's noteworthy sellpoints.


Also, have you ever tried taking a photo with your computer? Yeaaahhhhh.....

I'm never in that situation so I guess I can't relate.  I still don't think accessibility is worth purchasing another device for though.

From a business standpoint, relying on a stationary device to communicate with others is about as sick a joke as possible. Even from my more menial labor-ish job, relying on a pc for my internet needs like email and business purchases is a waste. I can be essentially anywhere at any time and fire off an email, order something off the web, and still watch a funny video afterwards while sitting at a bus stop or train station. To be extremely fair, my galaxy s4 runs about as fast as a cheap pc anyway, so why would I bother owning a computer for functions my smartphone covers just as easily?

Btw,I used this exact conversation minus the galaxy s4 statement ( it was an infuse at the time), to sell phones while working in Radioshack. It worked 6 times. The times it failed were because the following credit checks for said customers qsked for 500 dollar deposits for accounts to be created. Fucking money.

Well, I don't like being connected to the Internet at all times, which is why I'm part of the 0.000001% of people in their 20s without a smartphone and/or tablet. I wouldn't ever care to use the Internet in a car or at a restaurant. I like being free from the Internet instead of treating it like oxygen.

I'm not doubting the importance of it in certain situations/professions, but it seems like everyone and their mom has a tablet now and it doesn't seem necessary.

Same here.  I don't have a smartphone and the only reason I have a tablet is because it was a gift, which I barely use as explained above.

Heh, I still use my landline. If I'm available over that phone, I'm available for work. My cellphone (not even a smartphone and prepaid to boot) is for (small) emergencies and the like. I'd hate being connected all the time, because the people who are on their smartphone all the time seem so disconnected from the real world.

A cellphone is a device, what you do with it depends on you. Merely having one won't make you relinquish the world. If it happens, it's entirely your fault.

I was always kind of skeptical about tablets and smartphones but seeing the advancements they are getting. Their computing power is advancing at an unprecedented rate. Tablets can already emulate Dreamcast, that kind of software support and enthusiasm towards the scene is making me want to get one.
Google sells their tablets at factory price and they seem to be releasing one every year. I see myself jumping onboard the craze in a few years from now. It's a hassle to use laptops for more simple navigational tasks.
I see myself in the future having a super powerful Desktop and a tablet, Im still only using laptops because I need to code and carry it around and I use it as a gaming machine aswell. When my life becomes more stable, I look forward to having a nice powerful tablet for more simple needs and a desktop for more sophisticated tasks.

That's true, but it's hard to keep believing it's true when nearly everyone seems to be his/her phone at the dinner table, while playing a (board)game together, when at the check-out at the supermarket (not noticing when it's their turn)... Or like how people would rather watch a concert on the small screen of their smartphone while filming it than just putting the damn thing down and enjoying the moment.

Those are minorities(using your concert example, you see like 20% of people doing that at the most). Most people are moderate towards smartphone/tablet consumption, atleast from real world examples. It's unfair to put everyone on the same boat, that's what Annubis was trying to get at I think.
