"An iPod, a phone, and an Internet communicator."

"An iPod, a phone, and an Internet communicator."

A thing to free you from your desk. A thing to tie your desk to your back. A way to stay in touch with loved ones. A way to be disconnected from the people around you - to be 1,000 away from people you’re standing next to on the corner. A way to learn. A way to reinforce your most ignorant beliefs. A camera capable of taking “Studio-quality portraits. Without the studio.” A movie studio in your pocket. More music than you could listen to in a lifetime and at least as many podcasts, if that’s your thing. A way to sell your junk. A way to take pictures of your junk. And, if you’re a particular type of entrepreneur, a way to sell pictures of your junk. 

A platform.

A status symbol. 

An isolation booth.

A lifeline. 

An iPod.

A phone. 

An Internet communicator.
