“I HEARD THAT SOMEONE TALKS ABOUT GYM. ARE YOU GUYS
Sorry, Hulk, I thought you are too busy at beating other superheroes, I do remember you, bro. That’s why I invited you to be our guest on our blog today. Can you tell us about how you usually train and keep your body in shape?
“ROARRRRRRRR! HULK TELL YOU SOMETHING, THE ONLY THING I DO FOR WORKOUT IS SMASH, SMASH, AND SMASH. I NEVER STOP MYSELF TO DESTROY THINGS. I DON’T CARE!!!”
Hang on, Hang on, Hulk, we can’t just smash things to workout.
“THIS IS WHY YOU ARE SO LITTLE. YOU NEVER REALLY WORKOUT, DO YOU EVEN LIFT BRO!”
Please, Hulk, please to smashing my floor and tear down my walls, I am still paying rent for that.
“I DON’T CARE!! EAT, LIFT, SMASH, SLEEP, AND REPEAT! THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO DO!! HULK SMASHHHH!”
Alright, alright, Thank you so much for you to come today. I think we are done at the moment…….Please, stop smashing
“ROARRRRRRRR. SEE YOU NEXT TIME TINY GUY. ROARRR”
Oh, he is gone
Here is a man distracted by beauty and grace. A man who cannot commit. His gaze shifted away from what’s most important from him. His attention away to the newest iPhone.
I made this meme because it’s telling on how how much we give up to use the latest technologies. How many of the apps we download require basically all of our input data on the phone? The moment we use a new phone, our personal information is needed. The e-mail is no longer for work or advertisements. It becomes our mobile footprint. We are offered convenience and predictability as an excuse to give this much information, but can we hold developers, advertisers, and manufacturers accountable? Should we be accountable too?
Our attention is taken from us too. Mobile technologies don’t necessarily steal our attention, but they are big distractions of it. When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is grab my phone and turn on my Wi-Fi to see any new notifications. I personally have grown used to my attention towards my phone, but I rarely get to question it.
The meme is what I envision this blog to be. I want consumers, like myself, who use a smartphone and have questions and concerns about these issues. It does not have to be an ultimatum: keep using or give up. I propose that there’s a balance. We can continue enjoying our attention to these devices, but being aware on what we give out and why. Most importantly, what do these issues bring about moving forward? Do we need more autonomy for the users or regulations on the companies making it? All I have discussed can be found right here. When the battery is low, charge it and walk away. That’s when the discussion starts.
