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.
