In 2013, there will continue to be a growing number of people who have their smartphones and tablets handy while watching television. People are multitasking more often now than ever before while enjoying their television time. They are Tweeting, posting to Facebook, and visiting websites all from the comfort of their living room.
In this age of mobile gadgets that can do just about anything an older, larger version could do, one thing that has suffered (in my humble opinion) is photography. There are those that say that the abundance of photographs being taken and shared is more than a fair tradeoff for the lowered quality and attention to detail that once made taking a photograph and showing it something that didn’t require a charged battery, but I still miss the wonderful results of a properly taken, developed, and positioned photograph.
I’m what you might call an Apple Hipster. I was using the Macintosh and Apple IIe before they were cool. The various companies that I’ve worked for over the last decade and a half converted me to be a PC guy, but definitely not by choice. That’s why it was a surprise to those who know me when I bought a G1, the first official Android phone, back in 2008.
