Anyone get tired of personal technology? I am, and I'm an engineer by trade. I've been into computers, cell phones, media players... After a few years of smartphones (and tablets), it all feels so fatiguing.
I had some time to kill so I chilled out at my local Barnes and Noble. (Gasp, a brick'n'mortar store! Gasp, a bookstore!) I sat down with a coffee and few magazines (gasp, physical media!), and it was a peasant, relaxing way to pass the time while keeping up with my interests
Print got "replaced" by web pages, which were replaced by blogs, which were replaced by RSS, which was replaced by social media, which is being replaced by smartphone news apps... Somehow, reading print remains an awesome way to pass the time, and learn something in the process.
Anyone else feel the same? I'm sure most Millenials don't but I hope I'm wrong.
PS: Years ago I took a short break from all social media. Then a long break. Then I deleted all my accounts, and I've never looked back. All this before "fake news" was a "thing"
