In Which the Newt Reveals His Unplanned Obsolesence

Gingrich exposes his dramatic "I've slept through the last ten years" techno-ignorance in this three minute slice of absolute meaningless blather. I think he actually thinks his "thoughts" are new. Just embarrassing. Too dumb to own a smartphone.

Comment at Youtube by Wessie Emmert:

I think we SHOULD call it something, perhaps since it operates on small "cells" of radio coverage part of the name should invoke the "cellular" nature of the device. The device also appears to function much like a wireless version of telecommunication devices similar to the ones that have existed for over 100 years, the telephone. So to invoke the whole nature of the´╗┐ device we should call it the "cellular telephone" or cellphone for short. Perfect, I think I've solved the dilemma.

It's a TRICORDER, dammit! Scotty, beam Newt up.

Words still have meaning, and what you call something tends to define it. And maybe the end game is that once its defined it can be "regulated". When discussing pregnancy, do you use the word fetus or baby? When interpreting the 2nd amendment, do you read personal protection or that only the government can have arms? Whatever we call the device, we should make it clear that the government has no right to the information that is on it. Such as MFT, My Fucking Tricorder.

How about "personal digital assistant?" Has a nice ring to it, no?
