Congrats An App That Does Nothing

Congrats An App That Does Nothing

You know, sometimes an app comes along that is so stupid and useless that you just have to say to yourself “I can't believe someone came up with something so stupid and useless.” And in walks “Pocket Doorbell.”So here's how Pocket Doorbell works. You're going to a friend's house and when you get there, discover the doorbell doesn't work. Okay, that could happen, although I don't believe, as the Pocket Doorbell people claim, that we're “living in a post doorbell world.” I live in New York, and once lived in an apartment that I didn't know had a working doorbell until the internet dude offered to wire our online connection through it. But there still are doorbells in the world; in the senior community where my mom lives, it's a rule your doorbell has to work. So take that pocket doorbell.

Anyway, so if you get to your friends house and the doorbell doesn't work, and—get this-- you know this beforehand, and programmed in your friend's number into the doorbell app, you can use the doorbell app to call your friend and let them know their doorbell isn't working (because somehow you knew about this in advance and they didn't) and then they can come let you in. Isn't that useful?

Because you couldn't possibly call or text your friend when you got to their house and saw that their doorbell was broken. And your friend certainly could never possibly know that the doorbell was broken and couldn't like, look out for you or maybe even prop the door open or meet you downstairs.No human brains will not do for this...you need TECHNOLOGY.
