i have seen the future, and it sucks.

what i hate today is my ipod. we are living in the future. where is my fucking flying car? at least apple is here to simplify my life with such innovative design concepts as the NO ON-OFF SWITCH. on off switches are so 1997. god, i wish i had a time machine so i could go back in time and impress the shit out of everyone with the fact that i actually own a device which contains no visable method for shutting it down. that is truly amazing. pressing and holding down three buttons is so much cooler than flicking a switch. SO MUCH COOLER. i thought by 2001 we were supposed to have lip reading computers. that is pretty much the main thing that kept me from commiting suicide in the late nineties. what a fucking gyp, it is 2007 and all i have is a stupid ipod that can't even mimic human emotion. sometimes i think it can, like when it fucking refuses to turn off when i tell it to, but then i realize that is not an approximation of stubbornness, it is a failure of modern technology.i should have known my stupid ipod was going to suck, because the stupid apple II e computer i had in 1984 sucked. god 1984. wasn't the government supposed to be reading our thoughts by then? i guess the government is just as big a failure as technology. god, the future is just one big let down.
