I was one on of those beings: blissfully outside of all the smartphone madness going around. I had an old Nokia that did only what phones are supposed to do - make and receive calls. It is a different story I got treated like a dinosaur caught in time warp when I went to buy it :P. After being outside of the smartphone frenzy I finally caved in and bought an unlocked one since I was getting it for cheap anyways. I had not realized how addictive it can get. First I search for a thousand different apps on it. Then I realize the app repo isn’t enough so I get my nerd mode on, install patches and do tech geeky stuff. Spend hours together getting stuff on my phone and making it as close as it can get to replacing my right hand. Really! takes months.
And then, I go and put it in a diaper bag that has milk bottle. DISASTER. The milk spilled, my phone took a bath and now refuses to come up. I am back to using my dinosaur time warp phone. And honestly it feels better. I’m no more up until weird hours of the night trying to read websites on that miniature screen or checking email a million times or looking for facebook updates every 30 minutes. Peace finally.
