Quote from: japanesebaby on June 09, 2012, 13:53:55we constantly throw away perfectly good items just because we fancy getting a new and shinier one. we want to get something new, not because we need it but just because we think it'll make us feel better.
Quote from: dsanchez on June 05, 2012, 17:00:48This is one of the reasons why (for instance) I don't put my birthday on Facebook (besides, why should I put it there, when it's already here at curefans.com ) It's not personal at all. People does not have any idea of my birthday, they are just reminded by a system and everyone writes a message because of that, not because they thought on me. ...Are we happier because of technology?

Quote from: Ulrich on June 09, 2012, 17:01:26Anyway, I joined FB mostly to keep in touch with people I otherwise would not hear from for a long time, especially far-away friends in England or USA. For this, it's just great.
Quote from: Ulrich on June 09, 2012, 17:01:26Still, no Ipad or smartphone or anything.

Quote from: MintQR on June 09, 2012, 21:26:48OMG I was starting to believe that I'm the only one around resisting the overwhelming Iphone-Ipad-and all-that- frenzy It's good to hear that there are more sane people around. Still, I think we are the last ones of a tribe doomed to extinct The global trends are hard to resist and people decide to follow them not just because they like these particular gadgets but because there's enormous pressure from everyone around them (school/work etc).As for RS's quote I particularly liked the bit about digital cameras. I too remember what it was like to actually think about the next frame you would use And then the actual (not just digital) photographs also had this special feel to them I guess.... As for FB I resisted it but failed... In the end I had to set up an account to establish a fanpage for my workplace and I so I have a couple of friends there but it still feels a bit weird to me..
Quote from: billee on June 11, 2012, 11:21:42I must admit I love digital cameras though. Unfortunately I am "photo challenged", no not really a word but if it were it would be me. I am absolutely useless at taking photos & have been for as long as I can remember. So many rolls of film developed with decapitated people, fuzzy people etc so the digital camera has been my savior, well I still take rubbish photos but at least I get a second chance these days.
