    Had to laugh at lunchtime today. Everyone gets their phones out, and some use them to ignore others, by logging in to facebook or tinder. Boring old pricks like myself, check the news on the Herald website, and use the headlines as a conversation starter. I tried to check the news, & my phone said it was “out of memory”. I exclaimed aloud, “Fuck it, I’m out of data!”. Then the guy beside me said, “What’s wrong with the Herald?! Facebook is still working!”. Only one guy, with the latest greatest iphone, could view the new Herald website. Looks like the new online version, is about as useful as the printed one… 😀
