SMSHmmm, ever wonder what people did a few years ago when cell phones weren't as rampant as they are in today's world and they had to relay an important message to someone very close to them like say oh... a BREAKUP? Back then, we're sure they were forced to actually go and see the person face to face, you know MAN UP and say that it was over. But no, instead what happens nowadays... we get a simple text without any punctuation and possibly poor spelling at that (Britney Spears did this to her ex with a classy "I Wnt 2 Dvrce U" from her blackberry) - relationships and people are canceled just as fast as an email subscription.
Remember the episode of Sex and the City where Carrie is dumped via Post It? In this day and age, due to IM's, text messages and other forms of real time technology, post-it dumping is not unheard of.
Social NetworksFacebook, Twitter, Foursquare... MySpace (if people still use that). Now you can reconnect and get updates from ALL the people in high school whom you've never talked to to begin with. Not only that, you can also see that your boyfriend or girlfriend's ex keeps giving him or her a "thumbs up" on status messages. Who the f*ck cares that he thinks the newest sci-fi rip off of a George Lucas film is going to "blow donkey"?!?! Why does that deserve the third thumbs up this week? ... and why is that hussy writing on his wall? That's MY man so it's MY wall! PS - "It's complicated" is the dumbest relationship status in the history of bios.
- 3For the directionally challenged, having a GPS navigation system for your car is great for all the times people can get lost when traveling to a new destination. Having an application that uses' your significant other's phone as a lover's tracking device with things like Google Latitude is NOT that great. "What were you doing at the bar clear across town after work last night? And *don't* lie to me I saw you avatar there on my Google map!"
Remote ControllerThat's right, we *did* say the remote controller. Do you know how many couples have started heated arguments over this thing? If the remote control never came into existence the divorce rate would be significantly lower in today's society.
- 5Time Magazine recently published research that the average age for a gamer is 35 (55% are male). If you are dating someone who happens to own one of the latest gaming consoles you can almost set a clock to how many hours during the week they are going to spend in front of the TV... all while wearing a headset yelling at pre-pubescent 12 year old boys that they're going to find them and kick their *ss for the *sshole sniper move that made them lose the game.
Dinner reservations? What reservations? You knew the new GTA was out this week!
