Forgot to mention on Friday that over on Laptop Magazine there’s a fun post where I ask seven science fiction authors to name tech or software that makes them feel like they’re living in the future. I’m sure you can predict how many will say the iPhone, but not all of them did.
My own answer is similar, though for me it’s smartphones in general. Being able to check my bank balance, transfer money, locate nearby restaurants, get turn-by-turn directions to my destination plus play some games all on one device? Yes, please.
Check out the post here. (Why yes, that does seem awfully familiar to Mind Melds. However, we’re not always going to ask genre people questions.) And comment! Commenting is love.
