Por una parte ahonda en la enajenación tecnológica, particularmente la producida por Apple y sus gadgets (los cuales literalmente son como la religión en el cerebro) --en la que el hombre de manera primitiva adora a un objeto de consumo; por otro lado, una versión tecnofílica en la que la tecnología de punta de lanza acelera nuestra evolución.
