Not everything has to be computerized.

Not every fucking thing in your house has to be computerized and run on batteries. I have a stove, yes, but my wife bought a very useful digital pot for boiling water for tea and coffee. Fine. She mentioned getting a grinder, an electric one.

I said, “Hold up.” Instead I bought this handy little manual grinder you crank by hand. It’s perfect when I make coffee for the two of us, or for just me.

Digital coffee bean grinders. Motion-detecting garbage cans. Electric water fountains for pets. Self-heating, Battery-powered coffee mugs.

Does every previously analogue product have to be made electronic?

Don’t just blindly adopt electronic versions of everything.

Stay vigilant.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to spend 30 seconds grinding my own coffee beans.
