Today I want to vent my opinion about something I find truly ridiculous. This blog will be more of a rant actually than anything but sometimes that’s what you have got to do.
Today I came across an article which made me a little furious inside and generally the way the world is going (help, am I getting old?). Today I read (I will give the link below), with a little tweaking you can convert your cell phone into a microscope. Ofcourse not as detailed and specific as microscopes used in labs (I have to use all sorts of microscopes in the lab) but still you can convert them to microscopes. So you might ask what’s so infuriating about that? Crafty tool right? Actually in my opinion: NO. Who and even more WHY would you use such a thing? Why is everything getting commercialized for everyone and we just make apps and things for our cell phone to let it be something its CLEARLY NOT. It’s a cell _PHONE_, that’s it primary function! I can’t even imagine one setting in which it could come in handy to have a pocket microscope. Things under a microscope should be looked at in a professional setting (for medicine and science anyways). Are people going to far with their (useless) inventions or am I just getting old, I’ll let you decide.
