Smaller boxes and windows, flatter worlds and sharper vision on tinier view surfaces. This is the way the world of tech is headed. Taking your real life, HUGE world experiences and compressing it into trillions of tiny pixels. We scroll through flatter icons and simplified worlds, than take a stroll in the park and regard each other as great beings... We improve so much inside these machines to improve our lives because deep down we live pathetic lives maybe, that we need all these improvements out there but just make our lives 'seem more rich'??? What do you think about that? Kids are no longer encouraged to run outside or have field trips to the parks, forests and wetlands etc etc. They rarely touch, feel and experience their world, they just tap a few icons and rotate a few more still images from their very animated world, to get a giggle which resonates the same in every other giggle. But the giggle from a child living in the forest, desert or on a mountain, their giggle has a resounding depth, they honor the land, air and water. They connect with each other face to face, not over facetime or any ol'time to just giggle about other people's "so yesterday's hair style"... Each time these conferences come along, every year - I am reminded of our humanity and how we become more in harmony with the world we live in as opposed to getting more in sync and in harmony with the devices pushed in our faces everyday - made possible by cheap oil... This is a good time to reflect on real life and what that really means to us, forget battery life extension, how do we extend our treasured lives, our precious connections with the world we live in, all the people and animals? How do we go on? Really, really watching these conferences really feels like these people live comfortably in a tiny box, they can point, click and swipe within such tiny surfaces and get such a thrill. But then walk into life and be totally unaware, be completely at a loss if not for their gadgets and AI's reminding them of "things". Government controlling more of the content, so eventually drone warfare isn't just on other countries but in our very backyards? It is more probable than a new retina display mac book air people... Think about it... Happy WWDC 2013, or is it? Thank you.
