Holidays are coming, holidays are coming… No, it’s not the famous Coca Cola commercial. But Christmas is really coming, and I have started thinking of a present I am going to give myself. This year I want to praise and award myself with a tablet. To tell you the truth, I know little about this specific technology because I have never needed on, so here I am writing a public confession that I need help from my readers.
I have been thinking about the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 (T535), which seems sleek and elegant (and light), and, most important, has the 3G technology, which is one of the main factors I am interested in. The device supports Wi-Fi and has a 1.2 GHz processor. Moreover, the Samsung Galaxy Tab has a 1.5 GB memory and supports MicroSD cards up to 64 GB, which is very impressive. As regards the operating system, the tablet supports Android 4.4.2 (Kitkat).
Browsing through the Daily Mail on the Internet, I came across a brief article on self-obsession, also known as narcissism. The term narcissism was suggested back in 1898 by Havelock Ellis. The term refers to a young person who fell in love with his own reflection and later on was to turn it to the flower. In the present days, we label it as selfishness and self-obsession, and it is a state that is typical of both men and women.
The article that I want to refer to discusses a very hot issue – a desire to post status updates on Twitter and Facebook. According to the researchers mentioned in the article, people crave followers on Twitter. And their approval, of course. It is also argued that the self-obsessed are likely to tweet more regularly than vain adults (I agree that people want to share things on Facebook, but why should they be called vain?).
