    Smart phone issues

    "What did I do to deserve that" she said. I had asked her to leave me alone to my tasks. Please leave, I said. She did not.
    My "assistant" was a girl with hurt feelings. There is enough of that in real life. I have a sensitive and intrusive cybergirl on my smartphone?
    I may go back to rotary phones and handwritten letters.

    Douglas Adams predicted this in his Hitchhikers books with the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation - hence Marvin the paranoid robot and the awful sliding doors and elevators with personalities.

    Like in John Carpenters Dark Star where a thermonuclear device designed for blowing up unstable galaxies wants to detonate itself to prove it exists with the bomb doors inoperative.

    The science fiction of today is almost invariably the science fact of tomorrow. If so, we are in a world of shyte already, gentlemen:

    I keep trying to like my smart phone for all it can do, but days like today when it takes a dump for no reason and I spend an hour with Tech trying unsuccessfully to reload my entire contact list, I'm not a fan.
    A good long ride can transport me from where I am to who I am.

    I think that the trouble arises when your phone is smarter than you are.

    At least that's been my experience
