966. When the computer is “still loading”
As quick as we can get access to updated technology we are just as quick to toss out older pieces of equipment and make way for the newest piece of techno gadgetry and ready to dismiss it if it’s not as quick, fast, and efficient. Apparently nothing nowadays is fast enough.
I recall the other day laughing at when we used to write letters by hand with a pen asking our friends for their addresses to only get a letter a week later pre 1998, then to 1998-2006 when asking for email addresses were the craze and getting emails were heavily relied for quicker mail to the letters we can now send in a quick instant, and now post 2006 with text messaging, twitter, and following people with quick notes of info on “what were doing” a la stalker is even faster than a email letter.
So as we type a letter, document, or view a webpage the upgrades seem to come quicker than we can process them on our PC/Laptops. Then we are stuck within every 3 to 4 years upgrading and tossing out the junk we have.
Even when we are in a rush to get to a page filled with info we can sometimes still be botchy in information. For instance, in restaurant info pages and reviews they are quick to tell you how good and where the restaurant is, but never the restaurant hours.
So you end up having to look that up although a quick call is better, but why do that when you have the technology at hand? So as you search you have to wait for the pages to load and even with some viral videos they can seem pixelated and with new HD format movies if your computer is equipped withe latest technology you’ll just be sitting there “bored” waiting for it to load.
So as you sit there and wait for your favorite bookmark page to lad, maybe I’ll make some more coffee, ah well… how awful is that?!
