That reminds me. I just completed my 11th year of retirement.
Even though cell phones aren’t an important aspect of life?
Yeah they are.
Yup, in good and not so good ways.
Not important enough to be addicted to.
Not important enough to look at while driving or walking down the sidewalk
Not important enough to panic if you leave your house to go the store and forget your phone.
Not important enough for your employer to give you a break just to use your cell phone
Important when you need them, but no more so than other things we use in life. They are not part of us
By no means am I celebrating him. I posted that excerpt from an article that discussed tech CEO's in general:
Yet these tech C.E.O.’s seem to know something that the rest of us don’t.
Chris Anderson, the former editor of Wired and now chief executive of 3D Robotics, a drone maker, has instituted time limits and parental controls on every device in his home. “My kids accuse me and my wife of being fascists and overly concerned about tech, and they say that none of their friends have the same rules,” he said of his five children, 6 to 17. “That’s because we have seen the dangers of technology firsthand. I’ve seen it in myself, I don’t want to see that happen to my kids.”
When used properly, I think smart devices are a boon- and can be helpful. But they shouldn't replicate or replace behaviors that contribute to our well-being and health, such as a healthy social life, or engaging in purposeful activities that stimulate brain activity, instead of making the brain a passive participant.
That’s your opinion. That they are in the hands of almost everyone in the continental United States makes them indeed an important aspect of life. For better or worse.
Most of what I listed is truth. Certainly the comment on viewing your phone while driving is fact.
I can’t count how many cars I see appear drunk because they not only wander within their lane, they often wander over the rumble strip at 80 mph
Nothing is that important and if you search phone addiction, it’s a serious problem for society. I think all cars should have something that disables texting while driving...including while at traffic signals
None of this even remotely disputes that cell phones are, indeed, an important part of life in 2019 and beyond.
do you dance and clap while you sing this?
I thought it was a good post.
Good one IC! I’m guilty of over using my phone and it frustrates me. But if I get a text on the road, I never look at it. I use hands free and keep my eyes on the road.
It’s a big problem and all you have to is search the WWW
pretty sad state of affairs
How does one ignore a thread? I keep thinking someones cell phone broke and it makes me nervous...
Good one IC
