Book Description

For the last 150 million years, we've longed for a time when all of human knowledge and wisdom would be at our fingertips, so we could finally live up to our potentials and be the geniuses we think we are, be able to out-smart our kids when they ask for money, and know what to do when the loves of our lives scream, "If you really loved me, you'd know what I'm mad about,"  just to name a few. And with the Internet and mobile devises, there are now apps for all that.   However, there are some unintended consequences.Find out why this is the most interesting, and fun, time to be alive.


Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Ed Toolis is  SWM comedy writer, who loves moonlit walks along the Chicago Lake Front and all that jazz, and who only recently figured out why his career hasn't taken off in forty years. He never got married! If he had, he would have had an endless supply of comic material. So if you are single and will never be satisfied with his performance in bed, have friends and in-laws who will always think he's the worst decision you've ever made, and have kids who will constantly drive him nuts, please, contact him.

"There's an App for That" by Ed Toolis is a collection of very clever, often hilarious short stories about what is really the very sad state of the tech driven world we live in.

There is the TV interview with a man whose fifth wife has gone missing and who would never be able to "endure all the false accusations, innuendos and strong arm tactics by the police" were it not for the 115,600 people who are faithfully following him on Facebook" and "buying all those 'Have You Seen Irene' T-shirts, buttons and bumper stickers."

There is the bewildered woman confronted with the online burial arrangements for her daughter with a "virtual mausoleum and a guest book that takes a tour of the girl's highlights based on her Facebook Timeline photos accompanied by snippets of her favorite songs on iTunes."

There is the desperate young woman whose car has broken down and is trying to get to her job at Wabash and Randolph via the train but where ever and to whomever she turns, there is but one reply: "There's an app for that." No one can take the time away from his own iPhone or pad to actually help her until some one taps her on the shoulder and says, "Senora, des es da one chou want."

And there are all those people desperate to come up with a blog worthy of a book deal; the couples who fail the Conflict Resolution app shows; the unemployed college grads who consider offering blow jobs on Craigslist but find out that you have to have a website, a blog, a YouTube channel and a Facebook fan page with thousands of likes, or you'll be lucky to make two bucks."

And then there are the children. Don't ask.

There is a caveat to reading short stories, any writer's short stories.

There's An App For That - Humorous Short Stories - Laugh Out Loud Fun!!

There's An App For That is an entertainment collection of shorts stories that discuss the technology driven world we live it. Each story concentrates on various aspects of how we use technology in our lives - both the good and the bad.

Stories include:

The Morning Commute
The Killer App
Surviving the Urban Wilderness
iTownHouse
The Cubs Fans
Love in the 21st Century
Temps, Interns & Moonlighter
iShoppingCart
Tee-Off Time
Trouble with A Teenage Daughter
and many more.

We have become such a technology driven culture, that sometimes we don't stop and think what we did without it. These stories are hilarious, entertaining, and unfortunately, very realistic.

From Facebook fan pages to YouTube channel videos, this book covers all aspects of technology, apps and social media and how they are fully intertwined in our every day lives.

This is a Laugh Out Loud read.

Highly Recommended!!!
