Back in the good old days, we had to dip into stores like Tower Records or Rasputin to pick up the new Britney Spears album, or stop by Hollywood Video to rent a new flick. Thanks to technology, these tasks are a breeze!
Technology has made us become lazyFrom the comfort of my own apartment, while watching the fight on Pay Per View, I can pause mid-match to double check that my favorite songs on iTunes have been downloaded or my playlists on Spotify synced to my smartphone. I switch inputs on my television to my PS3 which has a Blu-Ray DVD of Avatar in to watch one of my favorite clips. I then slip on my XBOX 360 headset to flip inputs again and finish up party chatting with my friends list, as they’ve been waiting for me to play a session of Call of Duty: Black Ops with them. After a quick round, I flip back to Pay Per View, resume the fight, and tweet out what’s happening on screen like a sports announcer, amusing myself with the flood of replies.
That’s TV, movies, video games, hanging out with friends, and getting my music updated all without ever having to get up from my couch.
