    When I read of the challenges with media and public acceptance of the RIM system (and it is a system) of products and services, compared with the iPad, Android, and now Fire consumption devices, one thing comes to mind...

    Idiocracy. The movie. Available now for streaming on Amazon...

    Idiocracy (2006) - IMDb

    There is a reason this movie was never put into wide theatrical release. A future too real and too close.

    I fear the iPad and similar devices are taking our society on the fast lane to a dismal future with a public who only knows how to press buttons with pictures on them to get mindless media products. You don't know how any of it works, because you are "protected" in the "walled garden" and given "curated" media.

    And don't even ask what happens to the "Fuddruckers" restaurant chain...

    Yes, you have permission to be scared now.

    It is so close. Idiots are subsidized in supporting their children. Just look at the three branches of government.

    And idiots at McDonald's can't press the right pictograph...

    Love the iPad used in the doctor's office.

    "2001 A Space Odyssey" shows us a future with a tablet PC

    "Idiocracy" shows us a future with the iPad and Apple.
