Ever feel like you’re going crazy?
Oh, is it just me? Okay that’s fine too.
Not just crazy in general but crazy like I’m always drowning in new technology coming up. It’s seriously tough to keep up with it all. Every year there’s a new iPhone. And yes I got the 6S last week. For the record though, I had a 5S for 2 years before the upgrade. ‘Cause that’s how it works for me. I don’t have the luxury of getting the newest items every time it comes out.
That’s beside the point. Apple’s running their own brand of craziness, it’s getting close to that time where I might need a new computer. And don’t even get me started on the new Apple TV.
It’s everywhere. Canon has a new full frame camera body, the 5DSR, that I’ve been eyeballing (and my bank account is firmly telling me “NO.”). Amazon keeps pushing out new Kindles, there’s all these high tech gadgets that I don’t even really get (Apple watch what? Is this Fitbit supposed to guilt me into working out?) and so on.
I get it. It’s all fancy and new and exciting and expensive and makes you look so high-tech and smarty pants. We are in Seattle, which is basically turning into the new Silicon Valley but with slightly more parking. But come on. I’m 26. I’m only a few years away from that point where I stop caring about keeping up with things.
It’s overwhelming. And my point from all of this is that I am not going to even pretend like I know all about it. Cause I don’t. Don’t come to me with all your high tech gadgetry problems cause I’ll just give you the stink eye and maybe flip you the bird.
If you’re with me, then that’s cool. If you’re not, then that’s cool too and you’ll be hearing from me cause I have no idea how to use this Live Photo’s feature on the iPhone.
It’s been said by many (specifically Mark Cuban on Shark Tank that I can recall) that the only constant in technology is change. Photography tends to go hand in hand with technology and so of course that means the photo industry is always shifting and morphing as well.
It’s kind of ironic though cause we’re at a point where web traffic is now viewed more on mobile devices than computers.
So super fancy DSLR’s are really only handy when the imagery is needed for something other than web viewing. Like billboards or large prints.
Some guy did a fashion shoot on his new iPhone and the images turned out pretty decent.
What I’m getting at though is that this is all craziness. And it’s ludicrous that people like Tim Cook or Satya Nadella think I’m going to stay up to date forevs. I literally just had to Google search who the Apple CEO was.
You know what’d be really cool? Pizza that looks and tastes the same, has the same ingredients, but ¼ of the calories. MAKE THAT HAPPEN SCIENCE.
Cheers to iPhones, pizza, and not giving a crap,
