28: The Envious Gadget Geek

October 5, 2014 at 11:00AM • 1 hour 7 minutes • Wiki Entry

In this week’s meeting, Chris Enns of Goodstuff FM confesses how he feels the need to keep up appearances as an early adopter technophile, why he went four years between iPhone upgrades, how social media enforces his "keeping up with the Joneses" mindset, and how he has an unhealthy urge to be a local celebrity that everyone loves, but all while not leaving the house.

In addition, we discuss people who abuse text messaging as a medium, how we view notifications as more interruptive than normal folks, friends & family who aren't completely amazed at the new features of an operating system, how Apple doesn't seem to make products with kids in mind, and the rising costs of being a family on the cutting edge of technology.

It concludes with Chris completing step nine by apologizing to his friends for judging them based on the amount of phone notifications they get in comparison to him.
