The technology that's rotting our brains can also be inspiring
Oh wow, this commercial made me tear up! That’s such a cool perspective. Thank you for sharing.
And um, I can’t wait to read your foray into fiction!
I, too, skip commercials but I am really glad you showed us this one. It opens a world of possibilities that I'd never known about. How great that Em is already benefiting from it with her toys and has more affordable options for communication going forward. Cool.
I don't resist technology but I do shrink from it at times. I struggle with everyone's door cameras, where AI seems to be going. I don't want to be a luddite and knowing how some innovations can do things that actually serve humans instead of exploiting them and using their data is encouraging.
Apple ads are always a cut above, but this one certainly had the feels. But to your larger point, I think we often overlook the way in which tech, especially over the last two decades, has made the world more accessible. I know that’s not really the goal for most tech companies, but it’s still a good thing, and it’s something we should talk about more. Thank you for sharing this!
Amazing. Thanks for sharing.
Wow, Lyle. Thanks so much for sharing this commercial. At first, I thought it was just one of those “visions of the future” things, showing us how we might live in a fully automated world soon. Then, I realized that world has already arrived, and for some people, it’s made all the difference.
The accessibility features on Apple devices are amazing. While most of us don’t use them, they are life-changing for those who do. I also rarely see commercials anymore so thanks for sharing this.
If our experience is anything, Emily will continue to astound you -- just like the advances in technology since our son was born 26 years ago. Enjoy the ride, Lyle. Ups and down -- but so much joy. Sounds cheesy...but I hope you know. Thx for the shout-out, too.
