I’ve been thinking about technology lately. I normally don’t think about it, but I’ve been looking at iPods lately. I definitely need a new one, because half of the music I have on iTunes isn’t on my iPod.
But I started thinking about how much I use my iPod. It started to snowball- iPods turned into the internet, and that led to t.v., which led to e-readers and cell phones.
Something that crossed my mind over the weekend was an e-reader. I was in Barnes and Noble, and for the first time, I really considered getting an e-reader. I figured I’d get one eventually, but it was low on my priority list. Like bottom of the list low. And for the longest time, I figured I wouldn’t use it very much, so there was no point in getting one. But then again, that’s what I said about my iPod, and it’s something I use a lot. For me, it would be a big purchase, so I’ll have to think about it carefully. Maybe I should make a pro/con list or something.
I’ve never really thought about unplugging more. But now, I’m kind of wondering if I need to. Perhaps I should take note of how much I use technology, like over the span of a week or something, just to see. It could be an interesting experiment. I may have to try it sometime soon and share my findings. If there are any, that is.
I really liked this article called The Joy Of Quiet. It’s an interesting article, and quiet can be good.
I think I’m done rambling. At least for now. But the rambling will continue on another day. Possibly tomorrow. But I don’t really know for sure.
