Too Much

Do you ever think that the i technology is just getting way too far ahead of you?  Is there such a thing as just plain too much information?  Well, I do...and I realize that I am in a minority.

But, really!?!? as they say on SNL.  Sunday, I skim through all those ads in the morning paper.  In Best Buy's  ad,  I noticed iScale.  It is a Bluetooth enabled body weight scale that allows you to track calories and your daily activities that burns them up.  You can organize these records and make graphs.  Isn't that just so special?  And here is the fun part--you can share this information with your fitness buddies!




As if the bathroom scale isn't evil enough on its own, there are those who feel the need to spawn diabolical little gremlin offspring.

Hey!  Stephen King take note.  I think there is a the seed of a true tale of horror here.  Feel free to use it.

  1. Oh my, the things we have to look forward to as we grow older. If we step off the track the world of technology passes us by. How fast can we run to stay current?

  3. I do have a "smart scale" that can calculate all kinds of things. But lately I just check the weight. And then I have to plug it into my on line graph, which I DO NOT share, myself.

  7. Sounds like my worst nightmare. Too much information.
    Sometimes ignorance is bliss. I like my blissful, ignorant if somewhat gluttonous life.

  8. That is quite a scale. I don't think I would want to know all that information.
