Marketing Has Us All Hooked Through Nose
Ten Years Ago, I was arguing the "downside" of CALLER ID. How could we live without that now? How else would we ignore 50% of our incoming calls.
Then came the car-phone and the "cell-phones" that had a battery pack (worn over the shoulder for weight and a handset the size of a brick.
Ten years pass. I have no landline backup and Mr. Nokia decides o turn "antenna to Heaven." I am unable to start my day because someting I scoffed at a decade ago is mocking me from beyond it's little cardboard grave.
Satan lives in Trends. Quote me.
