The next big thing is already here- Samsung III vs Iphone 5

The Iphone 5 is released today. The specifications were announced earlier and devoted users were talking about it all week. Then samsung releases a video mocking those who are making such an effort to get something that they could already get.

Watch it, seriously. That's exactly what the lineup will be like (except for those who preordered). 

I have caved, I have a few i-devices. After using my macbook air for a few months I have discovered some conveniences and it is lighter, but for the same price I could have bought 3 comparable laptops or a super laptop with double the specifications. And it's the same for the iphone. How do people justify the hype, price, and accessories? Well, it's a cult. 

A cult is defined as:

A system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object.

In today's society, we may not be prostituting ourselves to Greek Gods or worshipping Baal, but certainly there are a whole lot of similarities between the worship of these "Gods" and the way we treat technology. The iphone will do so much for me- it will organise this, that, it will make me seem popular, hightech.... 

While the iPhone or galaxy can be neutral, let's be careful of our attitude towards such devices. 

Romans 1:25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised.Amen.
