Emad's Blog (Under Renovation)

Attempted return - yey or nay?

Feels like it's been a nice long time away from the good ol blog, and a whole lot's happened since.

Instead of playing catch-up, maybe I should just pick up from where I'm currently at, and run with it.

I think the biggest mindless distraction that's kept me away from sharing my thoughts (no it's not all the chocolate!) is the iPhone. What a fascinating piece of kit! Those tap farms, kitchens, boutiques, and such apps really beginning to take a toll on little sparks of intelligence that may have remained post moving on from AIESEC and uni.

In fact, just observing people on the tube (a truly entertaining activity, I will have you know!), it's amazing how, in the space of a couple of years, things have changed so drastically. There are officially more people trying to unroll a bog roll on their iPhones than there are people reading books (well, not 'officially', but I am sure if someone has time to conduct some mindless research.. wait I'm sure there's an app for that!). Even on the more literate side, there are more adverts for the Kindle on stations than there are adverts for new books (barring Jeremy Clarkson - that's not literature).

Oh well. That's the iGeneration.
