    Not sure what this has to do with smartphones, but while it contains some unfortunate truths, it's kinda funny.

    My state of mind at the time. It's tech. It's politics. Mind you, it's more politics and economics today, as they stand. Satire?

    Why don't they put their money where their mouth is and leave the earth to the rest of us. Truly they are using statistics for their predictions, the earth has been through many changes and will go through many more. This is like telling a cancer victim to just give up (which many doctors do). While there is will or a chance one should continue, and when there is no chance one should still continue to prove the naysayers wrong!

    Fellas, I don't know if Del did this intentionally, but if you look hard, you'll see a faint credit at the bottom of the article. Once you see where it's from, you'll know that it's all tongue-in-cheek.

    Nope KTW, my blog is more sinister. It can't be published. It's also impossible to do so because the world isn't there to see it. It's too weak and in pain. Vison is a blur.

    My comment stands, while the Onion is satirical, so are many comedy shows on the TV but they all try to quietly sell their agenda but showing politicians to be stupid, ignorant or just corrupt, yet we are the ones that elect them. Read it as tongue in cheek if you will but check how many articles are tongue in cheek discussing the left wing agenda. Look at the statement that the closure of government is blamed on congress so the press say this is the Republicans, the last time I checked congress refers to the House and the Senate two groups of children that won't play together, ie Republicans and Democrats!!
