Are you a manly man? Do you have a smartphone? Well, Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, thinks that whether it’s iOS or Android, your touchscreen makes you a pansy. Some may think Brin’s words at a recent TED talk were asinine, but whatever the case is, he called it downright “emasculating”.
As quoted by CNET:
Speaking at the TED Conference today in Long Beach, Calif., Brin told the audience that smartphones are “emasculating.” “You’re standing around and just rubbing this featureless piece of glass,” he said.
Um, Sergey? I love your work and all, but as a 16-year-old young boy who works out and reviews tons of touchscreen technology, I’ve never felt manlier until I could carry 3 phones on my person at any time.
