Angry Birds

“Ever since we played Angry Birds in Maine,” Marcus said on the phone the other night, “I’ve been seeing it everywhere. I guess it’s becoming pretty popular.”

I just barely restrained myself from pointing out that Marcus is hardly the barometer for what’s hot in recreational tech. Other cutting-edge tech products to which Marcus has recently been introduced include Pandora, Twitter, Facebook games, and Skype.

“I’d heard of Skype before,” he insisted, “but it hadn’t really been contextualized for me.”

“And you didn’t type it into Google? Wait, you’ve heard of Google, haven’t you?”

“Go play your videogames, woman.”

    Being not smart phone enabled Angry Birds and 4Square have more or less passed me by.

    Thank you for the morning chuckle Meg. Just turned my mom onto google’s phone service. She is convinced I must work for the company to know about these things. 🙂

    Haha! Good one, Mom.

    I usually associate being smart and being tech savvy, so it constantly blows my mind when someone really smart (Marcus) has never heard of something. I’m also usually carried along by geekier friends, so being the cutting-edge one is hilarious to me.
