Today the Bear was practicing with his iPhone and asked Siri what her opinion of gay marriage was. (Siri is Apple's voice-control personal assistant.)
"My name is Siri, and I was designed by Apple in Cupertino, California. That's all I'm prepared to say."
Somehow, the Bear got the impression she was leaving no doubt as to her opinion, but didn't want to risk being thrown against the wall. Bears hate gay tech.
The Bear learned that Siri can tell jokes, make appointments on his calendar, conduct web searches, and make phone calls. For example, the Bear located the nearest Petco, called for an appointment for Buster and entered it into his calendar completely via Siri.
Yesterday, he found his old day runner planner on top a bookcase, covered in dust. Yeah, it got the job done, but who can deny we're more efficient and fun today?
On his iPhone, the Bear also has two different apps for Liturgy of the Hours: Universalis and Divine Office. He has his Douay Rheims and NABRE, as well as many other books. He has the EWTN app, the Ignatius Press audio Bible / talks app, and even a Confession app. There are a lot of good resources out there for all the perils of tech.
And you'd never fit all of them into a day runner.
