Things I Can’t Find

Once upon a time there was no internet. People looked up information in huge paper things called books (not sure what one is? Google it). Or they just lived not knowing the answers. Shopping was something you did by walking into shops and choosing from the items on the shelves and finding out what products were available relied on the knowledge of your friendly local shop assistant.

Now of course, we have the internet. I like the internet, I can find out almost anything almost instantly. I can choose from a variety of products and have them delivered to my door without me having to get cold, wet or sore feet from walking around town all day. It does however have its limitations.

So here are some things I have not been able to find:

  • A website which tells you which new phone is the best one to upgrade to based on your current phone (If I find one it will laugh at me and tell me to get two tin cans and some string, but that’s not the point).
  • A way of automatically marking up an e-book script for a part (if you use Apple though, ScenePartner looks amazing and does audio too).
  • A website which given a dish and a geographical area will find a restaurant that serves it.
  • A website which lists all the things that you can’t easily find on the internet (hang on…).

If you happen to know any answers, or even have things of your own you cannot find then do please comment and tell me.

  1. My son and I were debating the pros and cons of the internet world just this morning. I feel your pain (but I also love talking to people and watching & listening to things on the other side of the world. 🙂 Best to you.

    • I think the problem is that the internet has given us so much but it has also raised our expectations of what is possible too. That and watching too much sci-fi. “Computer, zoom and enhance”!

  2. I love your third idea of inputting the dish and geographical area! Although these days there should surely be an option to use your current location as supplied by Big Brother?

    • In my case I’m thinking of using it for planning trips in advance but it would also be a good feature to be location aware. We’ll add it to the requirements.
