(unnecessarily strong language warning! We do so love animated foul-mouthed forest creatures operating text to voice software.)
Really I’m a hater for all smartphones. The most basic cellphone on the market is way too smart for me. I don’t need a camera/video/interweb/GPS/appsavvy telephone. I just need a landline I can rip out the wall and make calls from anywhere to anywhere and flippin hear the words spoken through it. And I want it for less than $50/month. Is that so much to ask for in these modern cussing times?! Someone deliver this poor man a dumb phone! I grow weary of my outrageous cell phone bills subsidizing the research, development and marketing of the latest greatest unfathomable accomplishment that I will never ever get around to using.
I really should be painting the kitchen or pricing siding at the lumberyard but the rant continues… My problem is that I’m a dumb-tool man. Carpenters are by profession generalists, which means they know how to operate dozens of specialized hand and pneumatic and power tools- like that awesome fight scene in Crouching Tiger when Michelle Yeoh keeps pulling weapons off the dojo’s racks to get the job of murdering her opponent done. You don’t use a circular saw to cut trim and you don’t use a jigsaw to rip sheet goods. You use the right tool and your life is easier and the work looks professionally done. All-in-one tools are without exception crap. That includes you, Mr. smartypants phone.
