愚蠢的我 令人神经错乱的科技

——Stupid Me & Terrifying Technology

Last night I was about to drive to a meeting. As soon as I sat into my car, I put the car key into its place. Before I even started the engine, the music in my phone started playing. It was quite normal, as my phone is connected to the sound system of my car via Bluetooth. Usually the last listened audio file in my phone will be automatically played as soon as the electricity of the car is on.

昨天晚上要开车去一个地方。当我坐在驾驶座上,把鈅匙插上,还没来得及发动汽车,就听见手机里的音乐响了起来。这很正常,因为我的手机是通过蓝牙与汽车的音响系统连着的,所以只要汽车通上了电,手机里上次听过的音乐就会自动开始播放。

Then I reached for my phone from my bag, intending to set up the GSP in my phone before I could go. But the phone was not in my bag.

然后我就把手伸到包里去摸手机,准备把GSP设好就上路。结果摸来摸去摸不到。

I searched and searched, but just couldn't find it. I put my bag on my lap and took all the items out one by one, but still didn't find the phone.

我干脆把包提到膝盖上放着,把里面的东西一样样掏出来放在旁边的空座上,所有的东西全掏出来,还是没找到手机。

I searched the floor, and even the narrow space underneath the seats. Still no trace of my phone whatsoever!

我又弯下腰在地板上找,连座位下面窄小的空间都找遍了,还是没有半点手机的影子!

With the music from my phone playing on and on, I was in sheer panic; and was almost driven into insanity: What on earth is happening? Who, or what, is making a fool me?

手机里的音乐一直在持续稳定地播放着,但我就是找不到手机在哪儿。我急得一头汗,觉得自己神经已经错乱掉了:是我疯了,还是这个世界疯了?

……

Then, somehow, a thought came to me: Could it be possible that my phone is still in my room?Can this Bluetooth thing actually work from far distances too?

然后,突然,我脑袋中灵光一闪:难道我根本没把手机带出来?难道手机还在房间里?难道蓝牙这玩艺可以远距离也能连上?

So I pulled out my key, locked the car and walked back to my room. Sure enough, my phone WAS really still connected to the charger!

于是我拔出鈅匙,锁上车,走回房间一看:真是的哎!手机可不还在电源线上连着吗!

Have you ever been terrified by these too smart, or too stupid technologies? With all these“Artificial Intelligence” and smart this and smart that emerging around us, sometimes I wonder: Where are they taking us……

您有过同样的被这些高科技吓到或捉弄的经历吗?目前所谓“人工智能(Artificial intelligence)”及智能这、智能那发展得这么快,有时我禁不住想:它们要将人类带往哪里?

Have you ever wondered?

您想过吗?
