My Trysts With Technology

By: Deepesh

Technology is a stupid thing. It makes you spend, stupidly, and before you can even gaze at your gizmo with pride, it is already outdated. A few months back I had splurged (the devil called the impulsive shopper inside me made me to) on a rather expensive cellphone.

Not only was it expensive but it also was quite useless.

The dimwitted techno-pedestrian in me could never use half of the mobile's gazillion cutting edge features. Add to that, all the gizmos made the mobile useless. A careless drop on a well-polished granite floor cost me INR 5000 for a cracked LCD screen, more than the cost of many mobile phones in the market.

And now to add insult to the cost, the company's service centre has informed me that they have stopped selling my particular model (meaning that it has become outdated) as a higher version is coming next month.
