Technology is trying to take over the world with as much grace as it can.
Sometimes, though, its influence can seem overt, especially when it steps onto the hairy, scabby toes of traditional thinking.
Earlier this week, there were unconfirmed rumors that a baby had been named Hashtag.
But, even if true, this is likely a one-off.
What is more important are societal trends. So my epiglottis was temporarily blocked with excitement on hearing that more and more parents are naming their children after Apple products.
