Just a quick test.  I’ve been pondering the development of “consumer” (and “user”/participant, of course) technology. 

I’m getting a great deal of useful enjoyment out of this relatively “low end” (by the standards of dang rich people who can afford to rush out and buy the latest thing every six months) Android phone.  I named it “Imp” (any Terry Pratchett fans reading this?).  I’m not sure whether to be pleased or disturbed at just how quickly I’ve gotten used to having a reasonably powerful computer with nigh-unto-ubiquitous Internet access at virtually any time I’m conscious.  Fortunately, mostly the former.

And speaking of “consumer” technology, anybody like pie?  Yes, that’s a VENDING MACHINE in that picture, and those ARE full-sized pecan pies in the bottom of it.  At least, that’s what you should see if this WordPress application for Android is actually working.

    …I want one. A pecan pie, that is. Not strange consumer tech.

    Is there something wrong with wanting both? If wanting both pecan pie and strange consumer technology is wrong, I don’t want tob be right!
