Wondering about Twitter noise? Check this out

This Harvard Business Review graphic was, yes, Tweeted, by a person on my work Twitter account. It's really worth a few minutes.
Look at how people are reacting on the Twitter accounts talking about the iPad. Think about it. Companies can spot problems in your product instantly. They can see what is a hit and what people hate ... without having to bug them with a phone call or interview. Just compile the data. Amazing.

I agree. The iPad is a breakthrough in business management.

I really don't hate anything but I've had enough of these so-called "advances" in technology.

My cellphone is smarter than I am, along with all the gizmos in my car. Here's proof(at least to me) that a lot of this technology is hogwash. Not too long ago we replaced our old washing machine with a new model. In order to do a load of wash now one has to be a computer programmer. I can barely read the control panel and there are so many choices to be made before starting this thing that I feel as if I'm programming it to make a lunar landing when all I want to do is run a load of laundry. The end result being the same as what the old washing machine achieved proves(to me)that this world is now being ruled by technophiles.

Now if you'll excuse me I think I'll fire up the VHS machine and watch "Driving Miss Daisy" one more time. Those were the days.
