a "seemingly anachronistic tool"

Confirmo en la reseña de NYT al libro Hamlet´s Blacberry (A Practical Philosophy for Building a Good Life in the Digital Age), de Williams Power, lo que siempre sospeché: soy absolutamente anacrónico. 

Powers spends too much time describing the techno bind that we find ourselves in today and that we already know so well. But for the most part his ruminations are penetrating, his language clear and strong, and his historical references are restorative. As a salve for those who are perhaps prematurely mourning the death of paper, Powers writes of his preference for jotting down ideas in a Moleskine notebook, a ?seemingly anachronistic tool? that he feels is essential to his well-being. Most writers still love paper. Some things are irreplaceable, and Powers explains why. His notebook allows him to ?pull ideas not only out of my mind but out of the ethereal digital dimension and give them material presence and stability. Yes, you exist,? the notebook reminds us, ?you are worthy of this world.?

Pero también tengo un iPhone.
