“Appily Ever After: A Smartphone Shrink” (NYTimes)

The New York Times recently published an article by Judith Newman entitled “Appily Ever After: A Smartphone Shrink”, which H-Madness readers might enjoy. An excerpt reads as follows:

“I worry my work won’t be good enough,” I write.

“Why is that?” the machine asks.

“Because my parents were so critical,” I answer.

“Why is that?” the machine asks.

“Because they were Jewish,” I reply.

“Why is that?”

“Because they don’t believe Jesus Christ is our savior.” I feel my iPad is getting a little personal.

Then the machine triumphantly concludes: “This is what is really holding you back: because they don’t believe Christ is our savior.”

“So what are you going to do about it?” the machine asks.

“Uh, convert?” I tap.

Then the machine smugly asks: “Did this tool help you get unstuck?”

Conclusion: I spent about an hour and a half learning that I am Jewish, which does, in fact, explain a lot.”
