Pointless consumer product fuels pointless consumerism

I always thought tablets were pointless. Never saw the appeal of these underpowered, overpriced, input-mechanism-challenged laptop alternatives. Give me something with a keyboard would ya!

But now this!

Modern tablets have only been on the market for less than two years, but they have quickly become potent shopping tools that generate an outsized effect on online commerce.

This really makes me hate them even more! But it actually confirms my belief. Think about it ...

You're sat on the couch with your $500 toy, you should be happy right? Well, apparently you're not, but why? Well, you're unsatisfied and depressed, but why? You're unsatisfied and depressed because you are holding a pointless toy in your hands, which you wasted $500 on and doesn't really allow you to do anything fulfilling. And what do modern Americans do when they're depressed? go shopping!

So to summaries:
tablets and shit and make you depressed.
