I already don’t understand how I ever walked around an unfamiliar city without by iPhone’s google maps function. Also glad nobody’s stolen the phone yet.
Maybe it’s an East Coast/West Coast thing, but you don’t ever read the C-netty Silicon Valley gadget people worrying that their ostentatious wielding of shiny, new, technofetish objects will get their asses robbed, and probably rightly so. When I first got an iPod, there was part of me that knew I’d have had it coming, should someone have noticed those precious white earbuds and come up behind me with a sock full of nickels. Similarly, if there’s anywhere in this country that a person riding a Segway down the street doesn’t immediately get the shit mugged out of them, I don’t want to go there, because its population knows nothing of good citizenship.
