iPad meets Blackberry in the confessional
A woman goes to Confession. As he offers his counsel, the priest consults his iPad to cite some verses from Scripture. The penitent replies:
I’m sorry, I said, I don’t have a pen and paper, I may not remember what you say. Wait—I’ve got my BlackBerry. “Tell me chapters and verse and I’ll email them to myself.”
Confession still requires a personal encounter. But this is a personal encounter in Manhattan in 2013, so maybe it’s inevitable that the PDAs are involved as well.
