Moblesse oblige

21 May

Mobility rules. Everyone has a device these days. But are we really ready for a mobile world?

Well we are, but they are not.

Our devices are consumptive. Time was you would take a book on a long journey. But now you have your smartphone or tablet, so your options are different and endless.

But there’s the rub.

What our devices are really consuming is electricity. They crave it like vampires do human blood and zombies, living flesh. They devour power.

You would think, therefore, that the first thing airports and train stations and ferry terminals would do (you know, those places where we spend so much of our valuable, non-renewable time) is retrofit their waiting rooms with sufficient electrical outlets, so you could charge up your device and get lost in a movie or a book, rather than run out of juice and spend half your time hunting the damn outlets down, and the other half impatiently waiting your turn to use them. Because there are only two…for hundreds of people.

Sideways winky happy face snarl.

I’m sure there’s a very logical reason why they won’t give it up.
