So, what you're really saying is that the phone makers should have
included a small thermal color printer in their phones so that the
OLs/HSKs (High School Kids) and their frindes can plaster the world
with their little cliqish memes?
Too disturbing an idea? Well how about an embedded injet printer
that is capable of applying temporary tatoos? ...ah hell, why don't
we just make them permanent tatoos; could potentally fit in nicely
with the embedded bar code readers and Bill Gates desire to rule
the world (a la passport/liberty alliance).
The Cellphone: the new information appliance for a post IT era
and information reductionist age. Just say "Yes!" or maybe:
Tune In, Turn On and Cell Out. (hey, I kinda' like that last
one... I think I'll copyright it).
I'm just wondering if we're going to see neo-hippies replace their
"Kill your TV" bumper strickers with "Kill your PC" bumper stickers.
