Yes, I know. It's sacrilege. I am thinking of giving up my smartphone.
We could also afford some things we've cut back. (I could ride a scooter legally!)
But I'd be giving up a lot.
Blogging and sharing blog posts would be much tougher.
Giving up the talk-to-text feature and the ability to take and share quick photos would be huge.
Instant weather forecasts I would miss.
A big one would be giving up the National Bike Challenge - no ability to use the tracking app.
Constantly having a novel, a bible, a camera, and youtube in my pocket has really spoilt me.
But here's the big question - is it cruel to disconnect yourself from your smart-phoned people?
Is life a little harder for others when they can't reach you so easily, can't group text you, can't share contacts?
It's probably a moot point - I am an info addict, but I keep looking for ways to simplify, to de-clutter, and to live within our means. Is this one of those ways?
May you have better grasp of all this than I do.
BTW, I want a smartphone like this one rather than the one I will end up with. Check it out! (I really suck at minimalism)
