"We’ve designed something wonderful for your hand, just wonderful"

When Steve Jobs announced the iPhone at his Apple Corp. keynote in 2007 I wonder if he imagined the world that has emerged in the ensuing eight years (8 YEAR!!!) where people can carry their life in the palm of their hand.
"So, let’s go ahead and turn it on. This is the size of it. It fits beautifully in the palm of your hand. So, an iPod, a phone, and an internet communicator."
And this is what he hath wrought:



Now that the American Telephone and Telegraph Company has acquired DirectTV you can watch TV everywhere - in a rickshaw, on a horse and even at the opera. Just wonderful, but this new world is also making people incredibly stupid for how else can you explain disclaimers like this one.

I know TV is great, but don't try this
Dramatization. Do not attempt.
