One Infinite Loop
Cupertino, California, 2006 - It was a rocky ride in on the plane to San Jose, which included a freefall joyride in the biggest air pocket I’ve ever encountered. The folks at Apple treated us very well, and the rest of the trip was a total blast.
I am a Mac user but not a fanatic. I really like the Apple reps I know, and they have always been gracious and knowledgeable. That said, there’s something wrong with a digital world in which there seem to be two serpents eating each others’ tails, like a yin/yang dichotomy or the two sides of The Force. But which is the Dark Side?
Steve Jobs’ office is on the fourth floor just under the left side of the curved roof structure. We didn’t meet him of course, but a day at One Infinite Loop is like a day drinking sunshine. Or Koolade, you pick.
Giving yourself to Google
Google knows I try. Every day I make use of the gifts Google has bestowed upon me with the hope that I might give something back. And I think, well yes, this could be heaven, right now, we’re already there. I feel so connected and so…wired and mobile all at once. Everything comes to me when I want it. I have searched and that which I have found is bookmarked and can never be lost. And even if it did, I could find it again any time. And who needs food, shelter, and warmth when you’re so connected to everyone and everywhere? If you can’t take care of bodily needs amid all that Google has provided, there’s something truly wrong there. But you can! For Google already knows more about you than you know yourself. Release your metadata and let Google index the sitemap of your soul. Your every preference can easily be configured, and your profile will be eternal, your history cached forever. Your life is yours to upload into the cloud any time. As you gaze into the browser, Google gazes back…and loves you just as you are. The bitstream calls, what are you waiting for? Join with us now! There is joy and love, Google’s love, and it’s just one simple step to begin your Search. A step we all will take every day, every hour, every minute, and eventually every second of our lives, until we are fully and completely in the presence of Google. Amen.
