“Oh my gosh, is that an iPhone?!" Laurel asked, her voice unconsciously rising in pitch and volume.

Aprilynne Pike, Illusions

Charles Bukowski
“now it’s computers and more computers
and soon everybody will have one,
3-year-olds will have computers
and everybody will know everything
about everybody else
long before they meet them.
nobody will want to meet anybody
else ever again
and everybody will be
a recluse
like I am now.”
Charles Bukowski, The Continual Condition: Poems

Yahtzee Croshaw
“Well we've left behind the 200X's, and we move onto the 20XX's. Maybe that will finally make us feel like we're living in the future, rather than a media controlled slave state where an iPhone is worth substantially more than a human life. Happy new year.”
Yahtzee Croshaw

“Our pictures are fleeting and elusive. In the far future, bits of hard drives may be fossilized in limestone, and discarded iPhones may find themselves encased in amber, hardened like nail polish, but the bits of humanity that these exquisitely crafted machines hold will be lost to time.”
Trevor Paglen, The Last Pictures

Walter Isaacson
“Google, you fucking ripped off the iPhone, wholesale ripped us off. Grand theft. I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple’s $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong. I’m going to destroy Android, because it’s a stolen product. I’m willing to go thermonuclear war on this. They are scared to death, because they know they are guilty. Outside of Search, Google’s products—Android, Google Docs—are shit. [Steve Jobs]”
Walter Isaacson, Steve Jobs

David Cronenberg
“Was the iPhone a malevolent protean organism, the stem-cell phone, mocking him who had cameras with real physical shutters whose sound you couldn’t turn off? Promising to replace every other device on earth with its shape-shifting self – garage door openers, solar timers, television remotes, car keys, guitar tuners, GPS modules, light meters, spirit levels, you name it?”
David Cronenberg, Consumed

Emily St. John Mandel

Emily St. John Mandel, Station Eleven

Albert Einstein
“Temo il giorno in cui la tecnologia andrà oltre la nostra umanità: il mondo sarà popolato allora da una generazione di idioti”
Albert Einstein

“You cannot have big thoughts if you are constantly doing small things (e.g. always checking your smartphones for the latest micro-updates on your social media of trivia and pointlessness). Using a smartphone makes you dumb. It shortens your attention span and shrinks your intelligence. They should be renamed dumbphones. They don't expand your consciousness, they contract it and make it tiny. Most smartphone users are out of their tiny little minds. Predatory capitalism and its consumer gadgets have been enormously damaging to the intellectual progress of the human race. They have been remarkably successful at dumbing down humanity and promoting the Dunning-Kruger effect.”
Thomas Stark, The Book of Thought: Mind Matters

“Texts should be blue, not green.”

К концу 2010 года Apple продала 90 миллионов аппаратов iPhone, и на их долю пришлось больше половины общей суммы прибыли мирового рынка сотовых телефонов.”

“Don't forget that the a apple on the back of your phone has a bite taken out of it —there is temptation at every turn.”
Wendy Speake, The 40-Day Social Media Fast: Exchange Your Online Distractions for Real-Life Devotion

A.D. Aliwat
“An iPhone can be a very useful tool; it can do real good. But it’s hard. In the same way that it’s difficult to be a good person, it’s hard. With it, you are easily susceptible to distraction, temptation, a spectrum of major and minor sins. They’re mostly the same ones easily tied up with the internet in general—lust, sloth, envy, pride—but on a mobile device they’re worse, more of an affront to God, because they tend to be committed at the expense of actual interaction with the world—the world He made, for you and for all.”
A.D. Aliwat, In Limbo

A.D. Aliwat
“A smartphone allows you to choose your own adventure. So be a hero, not a villain. Don’t be your own worst enemy. No wasting time… No training your brain not to remember things, losing the skills necessary to read a fucking map… No trolling. Don’t make snarky remarks on comment threads or internet forums or social media. Just do good. Help others. If you’re out in the world and bored, which you shouldn’t be anyway, but still, if you feel like you need to get on your phone, be useful. Answer questions, offer advice. Look only for question marks when you scroll through your Facebook news feed. Log on to Reddit and comment on something you have firsthand knowledge of and real insight about. Give far more than you take. Never text and walk. And stop googling things as you think of them. Instead, write it down and look it up later. If you can’t remember to do this, then you didn’t deserve to know the answer. This will keep your mind active, agile; clear to really think. It will keep you sharp. Using the internet for information or socialization should be an activity, something you sit down for—it should not be used while out and about. You should not refuse the beauty of what’s in front of you for mere pixels of red, green, blue on a 3.5-inch screen. Otherwise, you’ll lose yourself. An abyss of ones and zeros will swallow you whole. Don’t be a dumb motherfucker with a smartass phone.”
A.D. Aliwat, In Limbo

“Everything is about the phone; everything is about the internet.”
A.D. Aliwat, In Limbo

A.D. Aliwat
“Water would fuck up a phone-person. A celestial being wouldn’t personify an inanimate, man-made object; that’s just stupid. They could only take the form of an idea.”
A.D. Aliwat, In Limbo

A.D. Aliwat
“The iPhone actually takes pretty damn good photos—even Annie Leibovitz thinks so.”
A.D. Aliwat, In Limbo

“We are not on earth to choose blue iPhones rather than red iPhones. We are here to undergo the supreme alchemy ... changing from base metal into gold. We are a golden species, if we did but realize it.”
