    I was in a pub today. Almost every customer had his or her head buried in some kind of computing device. Even those sitting at a table with others.

    My mother always used to tell me to look where I’m going.

    I now find myself saying that to everyone when I’m walking in the city!

    If he had a smart board, he could email it to them.

    The title of Dr. Smythe’s thesis: “Lost in Cyber Space.”
    Why fight it? Put it on a podcast!

    I don’t fight it because that’s just how life is now; but I am horrified when I see people on ates ignoring each other so they can mess with their phones. Same issue as if you went to a party with someone and he or she ignored you to talk to other people all night. (I have a personal iPhone 5 and a work Blackberry, but I am not absored by them.)

    Did anyone stop and think? We got smart phones, HD gaming devices, Facebook, Twitter….
    We gave up on flying cars for this? We should have had personal jet packs by now!

    I hear ya. All that stuff from “Popular Science” that I was looking forward to. I would have settled for ground-effect vehicles, and magnetic monorails or pneumatic tube trains.
    But can you imagine the horrendous accidents that people with person jet packs would have while on their cell phones?
    I watch a movie like the “Total Recall” re-make, and think that’s the kind of transportation system I looked forward to. Not likely anymore.

    Nopey. All the “rocket scientists” are making mega bank on silly computer programs. They buy real jets with private pilots.

    That was my point bringing them up. I believe there are public use ground effect (water, actually) vehicles in Europe. I want a personal one! Not likely bullet trains will be built in great numbers soon — no state wants to spend the money for infrastructure, and private companies won’t invest unless the state governments do.
    What if the transportation industry had always been so risk-adverse? We’d still be using horses and primitive steam power.
    Barring an “anti-grav” belt or even a personal flying car, I’d settle for a Waldo device (remote manipulator) safe and flexible enough to go hiking and mountain climbing and make it seem as if I were really there.
