There are times I feel side-swiped by progress.
I’m sitting at the airport and my girlfriend texts me to ask what I think of Amazon’s ‘in car delivery’.
My initial reaction was to picture a high speed transfer of goods. Some sleek black car pulls up next to me as I rocket down the freeway, and then with a pop, a package is launched so that it adheres to the side of my car window. Next time I stop, I have my item.
Or maybe for when I am stuck in horrible traffic, I order from amazon something I-must-have before I get to my destination. Then bring bring – a bike messenger pulls up and knocks. When I roll down the window, they hand me the thing I just ordered.
It turns out they only deliver to parked cars and the car must be 2015 or newer. Huh, only the cars that have the GPS chip in them. So they know exactly where your car is.
Not sure which scenarios are more alarming.
What would be alarming to you?
