Some people might think that trivia apps are a waste of time that predates computers and even books. Meanwhile, most of us are sure that some hunter or gatherer probably said in some forgotten language one winter night, “Paint seven antelopes on the cave wall and then die from a festering wound.” They believe this is the answer to what they have heard, “Who is Og?” However, we’re still here in 2010, no cleverer or more advanced than we were then. We bang out our iPhones like chimps trying to get cones from some crazy high school experiment. Also, we’re still obsessed with some trivia stuff.
