There are a few gadgets that take a regular beating from many of us, and if a robot revolution is ever to happen, it will probably start with one of them. But until that fateful day happens, let’s take a look at some of the tech gadgets we’re all too eager to neglect. Because they have no soul – not yet, anyway.

GPS Navigation
There is no person in my life I’m ruder to than the GPS navigation voice, whether it’s Google Maps or Apple Maps or whatever robot lady is trying to help. Think about it: This skinny app uses advanced satellite technology to help me get somewhere quickly by letting me know if there are any delays or car accidents along the way.
However, when I finally have an idea of ​​where I’m going, I’m going to yell at her to shut up and quickly grab the phone to turn it off without even saying “Thank you” or “I couldn’t have done this without you “. Instead, it says “Okay, I got it,” as if I knew where I was going all along, and the directions were just suggestions I didn’t ask for.

It doesn’t matter how nice the headphones are, if they’re bulky or small, if they come with a case or not – at some point, they’re going to be thrown into your backpack or the backseat of your car and forced to fend for themselves in those jungles . At least my toothbrush gets a small stand and costs a lot less.

I shudder to think of those poor little headphones in my laptop bag, shaking with fear as they are surrounded by peanuts, nails, paper clips, erasers, and old, defunct USB drives that are upset and wandering around outside. of the backpack as Bladerunner. “I don’t belong here,” the headphones must be thinking.

Video Game Controllers It’s
probably best that most video game controllers no longer have cables. We all knew that one friend who would jerk the controller back and forth like a maniac, nearly sending the console flying out the window. They treated the controllers like they were Wii motion controllers long before this technology existed.
But we are all hard on them. We press way too hard, as if the controller can recognize the pressure and urgency, throw them down when frustrated, and sometimes look at the controller as if there’s something wrong with it instead of acknowledging how much it’s pushing us the game. They just take years of abuse, and when one of the buttons inevitably starts to stick from misuse, we throw it out or make that friend who doesn’t like them use them.

USB Drives
USB drives these days have the ability to keep all the data on our computers on a tiny stick, and according to the movies we’ve seen, they always contain important secret documents or viruses that can stop a corrupt company or destroy the robot masters. So why am I more likely to remember where I put a BIC pen?

There are probably a handful of lost USB drives with things I mistakenly think are important on them scattered across the country. We are so gentle with them when we insert one into our computer, but the rest of the time they bounce around where they are like a beach ball of data. Maybe if this data had the ability to spill like a casserole into a bowl overstuffed with Saran wrap, we might be a little more respectful.

Your current crappy phone
This is always one of our most painful relationships with technology. Your phone might be a little old and scratchy and it knows you don’t respect it anymore and want a new one. He sees you walking past the Apple store window like that crazy meme with a guy looking at another woman. It sees you put it away quickly when using it around friends so they don’t look.

Still, it does its job diligently, sending your texts and updating your apps and taking perfectly decent photos. In some cases, though, it lasts so long that you start to respect his well-worn character, like he’s the old man in a coming-of-age movie who earns the respect of the cool kids. “You still got it, old man,” the awful dialogue usually says.

Remember, there will always be a younger phone, but yours has been through several updates and seen things. Know the ways of the world. Or maybe it’s just an old, stupid phone. I do not know. Go ahead and get a new one if you want.
