What bothers me most about technology is that it is misused, mostly towards fruitless ends. The average smartphone could easily power a manned mission to some distant planet, but instead it's being used to squish berries in a tedious game of some sort. Instead of looking up to the stars and wondering about the future of human endeavour, we're staring at our navels at every opportunity, hoping to beat a previous high-score and considering that some sort of worthy achievement. We don't need half the technology we own. Perhaps that sounds odd coming from a computer science graduate, but there you are.
Merry Christmas to all.
