Oh me oh my! What is this Bill? A poem about iPhones? I hope that you have a sense of humor, folks, and can appreciate my tongue-in-cheek. Please take this poem with a grain of salt, and have a good laugh at yourself.
Just to give you some perspective: I am in my sixties. I have worn corrective lenses since I was six years old. At my current age, my corneas have already hardened. In fact, it happened years ago. This means that I have great difficulty focusing my eyes sharply.
In other words, reading tiny print on labels is totally impossible for me. That's dangerous man! That means that half the time, I don't even know what I am really eating! I am certainly glad that I don't take any medicines! I'd be dead by now!
Even the things I can read, I have to hold out at arm's length away from me, and I still have to squint and make odd gestures with my face. I think it scares some people. :)
And my computer? Well, with all of the writing and typing that I do everyday, I have no choice but to keep the font size in my BBEdit text editor at 24 point. I bet you keep yours at around 12 point, don't you?
Get the picture?
Now enter Apple's iPhones with those tiny screens. Forget it!
Boy was Apple smart! Making millions of dollars while half the world goes around with their face glued to that little screen half the time, ignoring everything that is going on around them, including important things, and even friends and family.
Oh, and by the way, desktop computers really are the best if you want to get any serious work done! :)
Mobile Phone Users:
I apologize if you are having a problem reading the text of my poems on your mobile device. I use a web design mechanism which automatically shrinks or expands images, based on the screen resolution of the device that is being used. In the case of mobile phones, it shrinks the image to a size where the text is barely readable. However, if I don't use this mechanism, then the image will be full-size on your phone, and you will have to scroll a little to the right in order to read the full poem. So either you scroll right, or else use your fingers to enlarge the image. However, if you use an iPad, other tablet or desktop computer, the images will look sharp and clear, and will automatically be displayed at their full size of 500x400 pixels, 696x560 pixels, or larger.

"And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his eunuchs, that he should bring certain of the children of Israel, and of the king’s seed, and of the princes; Children in whom was no blemish, but well favoured, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans. And the king appointed them a daily provision of the king’s meat, and of the wine which he drank: so nourishing them three years, that at the end thereof they might stand before the king. Now among these were of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: Unto whom the prince of the eunuchs gave names: for he gave unto Daniel the name of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach; and to Azariah, of Abednego."
Daniel 1:3-7, KJV
