Dilbert explains why we love our mobile phones

Summary: Readers here know that I have used tons of mobile phones over my history in the mobile space. I can always be found with at least one smartphone with me and am still ROTFL after reading the Dilbert comic that popped up in my RSS feeds this morning.

Readers here know that I have used tons of mobile phones over my history in the mobile space. I can always be found with at least one smartphone with me and am still ROTFLMAO after reading the Dilbert comic that popped up in my RSS feeds this morning.

While it is extremely funny to me, there is some truth to what Dilbert says about his phone. As phones advance further and further and become true mobile assistants maybe they will become more like a human and lose some of that attractiveness (just kidding, of course).

To be fair to women, here are some quips on mobile phones and men.

  • Like a mobile phone, a man prefers to just lie around when not working.
  • Like an iPhone, a man can only perform a single task at a time.
  • Like an iPhone, a man can fart on command.

  • Yes...but UNLIKE a woman...

    ...mobile phones have an OFF button! ;-)

    • Oh, I disagree

      Women have OFF buttons everywhere - except for "talk", of course - that you can't see and often don't know you are pushing.

      On the other hand, what phones have that women don't, is a button that you can push to turn them ON - reliably, and any time you wish, and that puts you in control of how long they stay turned on.

      Now THAT invention would be a true twenty-first century technological marvel, and might help Dilbert overcome his Jones for his phone . . .

    I'm interested in your iphone comment... does it not handle multiple tasks well?

    • Apple has barred multitasking on the iPhone.

      It could do more than one thing at a time, but Apple has decreed that multitasking is forbidden.
