Who is curious about the introduction of the new Apple whatever it is that will be announced at 10:00 a.m. in the Yerba Buena Center in San Fran today? I am, of course, but with some mixed feelings with the clear sense of how huge the technology divide is as one manifestation of the gap between rich and poor. These products promise salvation or at least worldly joy to those who partake or can. The hype with this new release, expected to be some sort of 'hyper tablet' has people talking about it as if it were Jesus. Hilarious. It is supposed to 'save the word' as in the printed word. Well, I love to read, and I love the hyperlinked world offered by the net. So, we'll see. I'm watching the live blogging here.
Edit: Here is a funny but also powerful take on just how important technology is becoming: Apple Vs. Obama. Money fact: 4 billion people now have cell phones, including 400 million in India alone.
Anon and peace,
