So they tell you they are advancing in technology in leaps and bounds, making-
* Computers you can take with you to the toilet and surf wireless for a better toilet paper,
* Cars that drive themselves on cruise control while telling you what’s around the next block so that you can relax and watch DVDs in your car with your honey/kids just like at home.
* and Phones small enough to be attached to your keychain, you can use to dial your friends in a busy cafeteria and locate them instead of *gasp* looking around for 2 minutes.
But really what you are getting is short term technology with the WOW factor of a bigger bone for a small dog.
* You get computers that'll constantly need new programs/spy ware/virus scanner every year/month to be functional and are worth 50% less than what you bought it for three months ago
* Cars that can still kill you or at least leave you with a good whiplash and cost you +the city+ the environment a lot more than what you paid for in the first place
* and Phones that will somehow stop working with the network provided by your phone company (right around the time your 2/3 year contract is expiring) as a result of some 'upgrades' they did; requiring you to purchase another $300 phone whose only selling point is it just came out (untested) on the market 2 months ago and can take pixel-y pictures of your dog with a large bone.
