It’s time to update. I apologize for the slowness, but I’ve had some blistering horrible migraines that seem to be recurring. I hadn’t had one since last September, and suddenly, they’re back with a vengence.
Last night The Jenna convinced me to take an Ambien so I could get a full night’s sleep. I slept like a baby for 8 hours, and then woke up with another migraine. Blech. So my windows are covered with blankets, and I take my prescription. 3 hours later, I’m ready to make my way to work.
I’d like to discuss “Cellevision” which is the demented idea to put television programs onto cellular phones. Now, I’m not one to judge innovation, especially where television is concerned, but let’s get real.
Cell phones have been getting smaller and smaller, while televisions have been getting bigger and bigger. I spend my time saving up money so I can buy a 100″ plasma screen, just as soon as they invent one.
I’m not interested in watching soap operas on a 3/4 inch screen. Call me narrow-minded.
I understand this idea is very popular in Japan. However, let’s talk about some other things that are popular in Japan:
3. Translating everything into Engrish
4. Living in one bedroom apartments with their entire extended family
5. Eating raw fish
6. Eating seaweed
I think we can all agree that we should probably not try to follow Japanese fads here in America.
And let’s think about the horrible thought of some 16 year old punk in his tricked out Civic watching MTV on his phone while he cruises around. Not a good plan.
Pretty soon people will want bigger and bigger screens on their phones until eventually we’ll have bag phones that fold out into 27″ screens. Phones will weigh 20 pounds and have an 18 inch antennae array.
Yes, it’s time to kill cellevision before we waste any more development money on it.
