Warning -- this is one of those "shooting from the hip" postings.
It's quite ironic that for all the scrambling for the latest in "smart phones", we are no smarter because of them.
In fact, I think it's just the opposite.
I had someone ask me a question the other day that made it obvious that the person had not read what I had posted for everyone to read.
Efficient means of communication? I'd have done better standing on the rock at the corner of my property and shouted the information at the top of my lungs. I'd have had better interaction with the rock I would have been standing on.
I've tried reaching out to people, but its like no one reads, no one listens. Why bother?
I know it's harsh, but why do people bother with smart phones if they end up being less smart as a result? Status symbol? Being nosey about who's posting what on various social websites?
I think the world would be better if these things we call "smart phones" were just pitched in the trash.
