Tech foiled by Virus

I went out late this afternoon to pick up some groceries and liquor (because we are needing even more copious amounts of that than usual – seriously debating growing grains in the backyard, but that’s for another post…). In the era of COVID-19, I dutifully donned latex gloves and a face mask (I don’t have an N95, but a dust respirator is better than nothing). I attempted to pay with Apple Pay so that I wouldn’t have to touch the payment kiosk. FaceID did not work due to the aforesaid face mask.  I also would not have been able to use TouchID had I still been using that “ancient” technology because of the latex gloves (though the screen still works, it wouldn’t have recognized a fingerprint).

While I love my tech, I think that this virus is telling us all to step the fuck back and prioritize.
