Consumer Electronics for the 21st Century

There can be no doubt that one of the defining characteristics of the 21st century is the seemingly insatiable thirst for more and more advanced technology. Consumers are willing to wait on long lines for endless hours for the privilege of spending hundreds of dollars on the latest iPad, iPhone or other exciting, apparently magical gadget. Cellular phones are so completely ubiquitous that if someone says they do not have a cell phone we look at them incredulously and surmise there must be something wrong with this person.

This obsessive romance the public has with electronic gadgets and the social media and internet based world supporting them is almost beyond our ability to stand back and assess with any objectivity whatsoever. The new world which we have created with our invasive, persuasive and domineering toys has overcome us so quickly and so unconsciously that it is possible the nature of its hold on humanity is beyond our grasp.

The next time you pick up your cell phone, iPad, or surf the web, think about how new this all is relative to how long our civilization has existed. Thinking about this fact will help you realize how extraordinarily revolutionary our hand-held gadgets are, and maybe will help you, and all of us, to sit back and take notice of ourselves, the world around us, and how we interact together.
