Lying about your life on LiveJournal to make yourself sound more interesting:

Izismile Videos

Convincing people the iPhone was worth the money by showing them that one app where it looks like you're drinking a beer:

Or the one app that made it look like you were swinging a lightsaber:

And that one app where it looked like you had a lighter:

Or arguing with your friends that the iPhone wasn't worth it, because you didn't want to lose your BlackBerry BBM conversations:

And, of course, bragging about your Brick Breaker score:

Taking pictures with that one awful Photo Booth filter:

But these things haven't gone anywhere, they've just changed face. The content may change, but the context remains. In fact, society is even more pathetic now with it's own pandemic love of social media, cell phones, and the rise of the Karen and SJW, to say nothing of the political situation. How can an old beer app be embarassing when the proverbial brass ring in everyone's nose is the size of a car tire?
