I love technology, but not as much as you, you see
I guess this is my little ode to cool technology. Obviously, the problem with raving about technology in a journal is that I’ll see this post in 10 years and think how naive I was and how stupid I must’ve been to be impressed by such cruddy ‘technology’. But, for now, this stuff’s new to me and I think it’s cool.
So, a couple times this week, I’ve logged onto the internet using my BlueTooth cell phone as a dial-up modem. I was just cruisin’ down the road, decided I needed to look something up online or check my e-mail or whatever and busted out my laptop and cell phone. All I have to do is click on the dial-up connection on my laptop, hit the “yes” button my cell phone when it asks if it’s cool of my laptop uses it to connect to the internet and viola! I’m online and rolling down the road at 60 mph. Of course, I wouldn’t do this while behind the wheel, but it works well for me as a passenger.
Anyway, I just thought that was super cool. I can connect to the internet while driving down the highway? Ridiculous.
