I UNDERSTAND THE GLAMOUR-Ipad
There's a sense of connection with the internet. It's another false addiction. For one thing it can spellcheck, it's an instant gratification, it's the illusion of company without any requirements. No real connection requiring any real response. And the ease. So easy!
People with no experience of connectedness will be enchanted. They live in families with unspoken contracts. Their definition of connection.
And the ease of writing. The false sense of doing, creating that's empty. Yet it seems real because it takes up space. The appearance of reality.
And the emojis. One picture for words. To easy, too simple.
