That’s me 🙂
This is yet another overdue post due to the lack in focus to blog, distraction from the very subject of this post and life in general.
On Oct 28, along with a couple of thousands of other people in Singapore I got aquatinted with SIRI.
It’s been three weeks now and all I have to say is that I love love love my iPhone 4S. Bear in mind that I upgraded it from the iPhone 3GS so it is quite the improvement for me. Siri? Well … I’m not crazy about her and trust me, I have a hunch the feeling is mutal. When I asked her if she loves me, she answered that she respects me
I suspect we’ll grow on each other. She seems to understand me more and my need to put on an accent lessens each day.
The iPhone is another example why I reckon Steve Jobs rocks. It’s made both my parents download apps, play games, whatsapp … maybe they would have done it with an android (err … we all know where the android came from) but definitely not with the ease that they’ve taken to the iPhone. The sci-fi world that I conjured up in my head, inspired by the TV, films and books that I was expose to as a child is slowly but surely becoming my reality.
I use to think that it was a shame I didn’t live during the industrial revolution where so many amazing technologies were achieved. I take it all back, the digital revolution is mind blowing and I wouldn’t change for the world. I’m right smack on the cusp of the non-digital and digital age. Old enough to be able to understand and not take for granted the things that the younger generation deem as normal yet young enough for the concepts to be completely intuitive.
In my lifetime, I’ll be able to talk to my car, read or watch the news on the same device that may be as simple as a transparent sheet. The world is changing and some days I forget how fast and how lucky I am to be a part of it all.
iPhone 5, I have my eye on you 😉
