    Default We are all lucky....

    OK so were here at AC share a common interest in phones & tech...

    Without getting to political as this is not what we are here to discuss..

    But I can't help myself to think how lucky we are to be able to use such tech and for it to help us communicate with others around the world and various other things obviously.

    There has been some great smartphones released this year and while I dislike certain ones & like others...

    To end this post....

    We are all lucky....

    Tell ya what... there are some extremely dysfunctional and dangerous places in the world and right now especially peace does not seem to be on the menu. Millions of people don't have safe water, enough food, sewer systems and places where their children are not in danger... never mind access to technology and a government that does not seriously restrict communication and freedom of speech.

    We are indeed lucky. We've done nothing in particular to deserve this status.

    This Status or thread wasn't aimed at anyone its just my cold that has me all sentimental & a bit philosophical and grateful.

    Wasn't trying to get all political but just showing a respect for all things tech and how lucky we are to enjoy such...

    It's the cold ahhhh ahhh ahhh chooo.

    Like many people now living in this country and others like it, I've never known serious pain, hunger, thirst, disease, war, political oppression, natural disasters, poverty. I almost feel ashamed of it. Look at the realities of life for almost all people in the past, most people living today, and the whole of the rest of the animal kingdom, and you wonder what the large man in the sky thinks of you as you sit fiddling with your toys.

    Edit. Not you personally....I mean all of us.

    Sorry Duncan, I took it off topic a bit there.
    We're certainly lucky to be around at a time when the technology of phones is developing apace and there are so many exciting new developments up ahead☺.

    Well said dude... My point in this was to highlight what you have politely added and to say that whilst a debate is a great thing and a bit of humour.

    When we attack and discredit whatever phone at the old saying end of the day...

    We are all lucky whether we have a G3 or S5 or HTC one M8 ect..

    The world has indeed gone well a bit mad. perhaps that is an understatement..

    We now have to work random number 10x harder to afford this tech and future tech..

    And yes a lot political nonsense (would like to use another word but can't) and it needs to change...

    So the poorest can enjoy food in bellies and a home as the main objective and human right, and yes perhaps a G3 or M8 or whatever :-)

    If its coming across as I'm insinuating we are not grateful.....my apologies....that's not the intended purpose...

    Rather that its a great time for tech and its unfortunate for some that they can't enjoy..

    But I'm dam sure the last thing the less fortunate are thinking of is a G3 or Z2.

    Mods if you feel this is inappropriate you can delete....

    I again just thinking out loud....my apologies.

    You may have started a more important thread than you intended. I agreed so much with blackdog and felt so strongly about the more serious issues that I just automatically disregarded your attempt to steer back on-topic in your second post. Some things just have to be said. But I apologise.

    (On a lighter note, and still on the theme of lucky to be able to experience such things, check my note about steam trains in...oh, one of your other threads. Exciting stuff, eh?)

    Edit. I see you already have.

    Wow. Good post. That's one of the things I keep trying to teach to my kid and friends. How lucky they are. Not to feel guilty or ashamed, just conscious. Living in the lucky part of our time comes with big risks: having a ghetto mentality and considering that they are there just because they deserved it.

    They must learn how wide and unfair the world is and they have to understand the cruelty and the roots of inequality. It's very easy for them just to became spoiled brats demanding a shinier gadget and missing the important point of ... well ... how lucky they are.

    (I told you it was a good post Duncan. Reading it again I realise my first post may have been misconstrued by you...I've added an Edit because I didn't mean it personally but it could have read like that! I was actually thinking of myself playing with my phone.)

    Yes its important in a world full of corruption & greed that we all see the importance of how fortunate we actually are.

    We here at AC do a good job at helping each other, should we have any issue's.

    But to go beyond this, if you have a neighbour who needs their grass cut, bit of plumbing done, or just to have some milk or baby food ect if the world and people open their eyes they would see the Evil that is Governments America & Britain. We need to help each other more & not buy into media pushed racism as its not gone as claimed..its as prevalent as ever. We need to believe I'm humanity and believe we can change this..

    I have a question that spins every single day, if the vast majority know that our Governments are corrupt then my question is What are we waiting for?

    As governments will never be about the people and for the people ...

    So yeh we right now are lucky to have what we do....

    And how about this if you do a favour for someone don't ask for a financial reward, just ask that they do something for someone when that time comes.

    Money doesn't make the world spin (its man made) love, respect & compassion does..

    Cheers wasn't aiming for political but I do care about this here earth, not just for myself but for my children...

    That may be true, but if so, why does it trouble us? After all, we're a part of that world. Why should we have a sense of the wrongness of it all?

    In the same way that fish live in water, but they don't complain about feeling wet....they're not even aware of wetness.
