Rant Ahead

I’m sorry. I’m fed up.

Everywhere I turn at the moment, I’m surrounded by iPhone and iPad noise. Almost every photography podcast I subscribe to has become iPad crazy. I can’t move for tweets or blogs about apps for this, that and the other.

I’m fed up with it.

It’s not I don’t appreciate the technology. Obviously, developers and users have found Nirvana in the Apple shiny things, and good luck to them. The problem is more that I am unable to follow where my digital mentors are leading.

I can’t afford an iPad. I can’t afford an iPhone. Therefore, it strikes me that I am now a second class citizen.

And it’s pissed me off.

Once the iFad has passed, I hope the podcasters and bloggers I follow will settle back into the business of helping me make pictures, and preferably without referring me to their latest app.

Thank you for letting me vent.

  1. Whilst I share your frustration, the photography press and podcast world has become ipad obsessed and at the expense of actual photo-talk. However I do think it has the potential to be a game changer among the pro’s, specifically as a handy & portable portfolio. Hopefully the ipad talk will simmer down a bit soon though.

  2. Ha-ha! Thanks for that. I’d like to think I will some day get an iPad. However, despite the fact it looks fantastic, I don’t actually think it’ll make my life better. I’ve got too much clutter in my life as it is, and another bit of shiny tech isn’t going to make it better. =o)
