E-mails, e-books, e-cigs, e-music, e-courses, i-phones, i-pads, i-pods. It seems like if there is not an “e” or an “i” in front of a product we are using today then it is considered obsolete and ready for the trash compactor. Society has become so dependent on e-products that it is driving us all e-mad, or shall I dare say “e-sane.”
Verbal communication is outdated. Paper mail is slower than the pony express. Notes are for illiterates. Letters are for people with all the time in the world. The world has us thinking that if we cannot communicate in electronic format – then it is not really worth saying at all.
Apps. There is an app for this and an app for that. If one needs to hail a taxi on a crowded, city street there is no need to flag one down physically – they tap on their trusty Uber app for the exact time and location for immediate pickup then off they go.
Do you need an e-app for something? That is no problem because there are plenty of fifth-graders out there who can whip you up one in record time.
Becoming “e-dependent” is so easy these days that it is beginning to be recognized as a new form of electronic addiction. At any moment, on any city street or any home millions of people are staring down into their e-products like zombies from the “Walking Dead” apocalypse.
Do you have a problem? Do you need an answer? Do you need a date? Fear not – there is a way to e-way yourself to a solution and bathe in electronic-ecstasy.
It is all so e-static…is it not?
