That about sums it up.

Walking through the Quadrant (the mall) in Swansea yesterday, I reckoned a good third of the shoppers looked like extras from Invasion of the Body Snatchers, i.e., they were having conversations (sic) on their mobile phones. Sometimes you even see a couple, holding hands, each with their spare hand holding a mobile phone to an ear. It is turning out that Alasdair MacIntyre was over-optimistic when, almost thirty years ago, he predicted we would be entering a new Dark Ages. Future historians will dub it the Age of Morons.

I had a feeling this cartoon would appeal to your prejudices, Kim.

Hey, I got a mobile phone, which, however, I rarely use (and always intentionally forget to take with me). It’s about six years old (I refused to buy one; Angie gave it to me as a Valentine’s Day gift, so I couldn’t refuse it), and the kind you top up. When I take it into the local Vodafone shop (”f” for “ph” - really clever, huh?), the staff smirk at its antiquity, and at the fact that it is only a phone. I once tried to start a discussion on the difference between a tool and a fetish. Put it this way - it didn’t turn into a seminar.

That’s a conversation I would’ve liked to observe!

mmm… sorry guys, I just love my i-phone. Great apps, incl the Bible, as well as time wasting games and access to facebook. Oh yes and I can make phone calls too.
