State of Play

TNY_09_04_17RGB

The cover of the latest New Yorker froze me when I removed the magazine from my mailbox.

Why?

Because it's me!

Artist Bruce Eric Kaplan perfectly captures the current state of play chez bookofjoe vis-à-vis my phone and iPadz, which I'm looking at way more than my TV — and the disparity keeps getting bigger.

The significant game changer is that the smaller screens are portable, such that I can take whatever I'm watching with me wherever in the house I happen to be, no matter what I'm doing.

The unbelievably crisp, almost 3-D Retina displays are lagniappe.

Ditto, my iPad and Fire. The TV gathers dust, no one in our house touches it anymore.
