My list of grievances with computers dominating everything:
Top of the list is cellphones, "smartphones", I-pads, whathaveyou, ALL handy-held devices that are turning the human race into cyborgs.
Almost nobody does business, personal or public, without computers, and when they foul up, you are fouled up (see my Emissions code rant).
Everything has to have a 'puter attached to it, either hardware or software-wise or both. Guns are next, if the antigunners ever have their way.
The way things are going, even people will be computerized, at birth.
The 'puter world is fast becoming the "REAL" world. Look at CGI: kids and other segments of the population with less than half a brain think that because it's in the movies it must be possible if not real.
People can't live without their 'putters, that's why the top of my rant exists. At home, everybody has to have his/her own Net connection, so in effect we have a house of "X" number of people all living alone with Facebook or whathaveyou. Physical communication, interaction or awareness of the others is rudimentary or nonexistent.
Driving is like maneuvering around a bunch of drunks.
The language is changing so fast that I am no longer in touch with a growing portion of terms and expressions that have entered the lexicon of daily use. Not long from now, I will be mostly unintelligible to the vast majority of "human beings", and they already are mostly speaking a different dialect from my own, and talking about things I either have no interest in or have no knowledge of, mostly trivia about people and events and activities that are utterly pointless or useless or both.
I would welcome, almost, real kids playing real games together and getting on my front lawn so that I had somebody to shout, "Get off my lawn, you brats!", to.
ID theft is the looming terror of the modern age.
Gov't intrusion is irreversible.
If your life oughtn't to be an open book, you are screwed.
If your life is pure enough to be an open book, you are still screwed, because "they" will get you for whatever they can anyway, "they" will make it up if they have to and "they" have the database to warp however they want to.
"You" don't exist unless "they" say so. And "you" are the "you" that "they" say you are.
"Forget all you know, or think you know." Your education is yet future and it will be given to you.
It will only get worse….
