The interwebs (and airports) are a flutter with the recent announcement that the wireless charging brand Powermat now supports the ever popular Apple iPhone. Whoopdeedoo. The tag line I saw on a recent group of banners on Gizmodo told its audience to:
Drop and Charge,
Don’t Plug and UnPlug!
I don’t find plugging in or unplugging devices alarmingly taxing, do you?
I imagine there are myriad other examples of technology that no one really needs – some of which I may actually enjoy. When the remotes to TV’s were connected with wires, was there some alt.universe Rob Rubinoff exclaiming that a wireless remote was unnecessary? Probably so. I accept this as part of my right to be a crumudgeon as I approach 39.
