I just came out of the movies, I don’t even remember when was the last time I went and sat at a movie theatre, I have missed it. I watched the movie HER because I heard a friend talking about it last week in Paris. It seemed like a strange concept, I mean, a guy that falls in love with his Operating System, so I got intrigued.
I don’t know how many of you have watched it, so I wont give any spoilers, the thing is, the whole concept seemed so weird and awkward, how can a person develop a relationship with their phone?, but then it got me thinking. How much time do you spend time on your phone? Instagraming, whatsapping, on facebook, on twitter. I’ve watched people around me, having lunch with friends, while everyone is spending more time picking up their phones and doing what not while seating on the table, walking, on the bus, at work. Well, also me, I wont deny it.
A world where people are able to develop a relationship with their phones seems so far fetched, even impossible and obviously it was just a movie, but it got me thinking of how addicted we have become to our phones.
One thing is, I don’t think I feel much need to use Siri after this movie.
But to all of this, what do you think? Have you watched it? The trailer is after the jump if you feel like it.
