Does this happen to anyone else? At college I find myself constantly confronted with it. What I mean by technology prejudice is being denied something such as a service simply because you do not have the "correct" type of item or cannot afford it. For example, my college campus is completely un mac friendly. You can't log into most systems or services such as the wirless network if you have a mac. I'm an English major and for some weird reason I get a lot of assigned tv home work (like watching a special on the History Channel or something) But guess what, I don't have a tv and cannot afford to pay the $60 a month for cable the college charges. Just today, I attempted to cash a check I got from work study at the college's bank. I've done it many times before, no problem. But recently they decided that they need your phone number to cash a check (this doesn't happen at real banks as far as I know lol) I filled out the check correctly and told the teller that I don't have a phone number. Her response was something like "what do you mean you don't have one? everyone at least has a cellphone" I got a bit angry and told her that I couldn't afford one and she called over her manager who promptly denied my check. Has anyone noticed how things have changed lately? It seems that everyone needs every gadget or a money tree to succeed in life. History has always been about the haves and have nots, but I think that it's beginning to get ridiculous. Since when have cell phones and cable tv become a necessity to surviving in this world?
