Techno Brains

I remember my mom's first Palm Pilot.
We all joked that she'd bought
a better brain; coherent thought.

Now our "brains" are bigger and faster.
The cell phone has become our master.
We rely on it to save us from disaster.

Talking while walking, you can't look before
crossing the street - is danger in store?
A phone app can alert you to that which you ignore.

You also don't need a detective
to determine if your spouse defected.
Find my phone app = location detected.

Never worry about drunk dialing again.
Let the Designated Dialer decide when
your hands are too shaky to call a "friend".

And when teens and technology start driving you nuts,
and you need a phone app's help (and have guts),
get the Annoy a Teen app!  It's fun - no ifs, ands, or buts!

Never again waste time thinking independently!
If there's no app yet, there'll be one eventually.
Techno brains will rule some day... inevitably!

  1. That was superb... I could understand it and could laugh as well!

  2. God, people are crazy
    For being so friggin lazy
    The cell phone will rule
    And all people will do is wipe away the occasional drool..haha

  3. You know that you could have just dictated this orally in your I phone and had it tweeted to all of us. Would have saved you time and space.
