It occurred to me the other day that we have become a culture obsessed with smart phones, and those numbers are only going to go higher. But what’s the opposite, the antithesis, what’s a dumb phone?
A smart phone is one that incorporates functions like email and web browsing, apps that can allow reading, gaming, news & weather and multiple other functions that we’re yet to discover. And oh yeah, you can make a phone call.
So then the exact opposite would be one of those phones that mainly makes calls. Just the flip phone style, simple, a device that is not much bigger than a business card yet it CONNECTS YOU WIRELESSLY WITH PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD!!
Are we getting smarter, or just needier, lazier and more in need of distraction so we don’t have to pay attention to people?
