Whats wrong with smart phones?? Why do we have all the bad press about how we are glued to them?
OK, so on the tube everyday people are staring into their small screen, but let’s face it we weren’t exactly chatting to our neighbours before the smart phone came along.
In fact, if you dared to talk to the person next to you to ask if they’d finished reading the free paper next to them they looked at you as if you’d just said you like to bite the heads of squirrels. Plus, before this we were reading oversized newspapers, killing the environment and leaving black fingerprints everywhere. Personally I sit there updating myself on life as I don’t get a look in at the news at home. I can’t vouch for what anyone else is looking at but I’ve yet to see someone googling sites for biting heads of squirrels.
They seem quite harmless to me. I can also let people know that I’m running late rather than just turning up late. I can call people when I get lost, which would invariably make me late and I can use the little map app to help me find my way.
So many people bang on about how bad they are for us, but I bet if they’d been around ‘in their day’ they too would find them to be the most invaluable piece of technology.
Go read ‘Who moved my cheese’ people, I’m sure there’s an app for that 😉
