Smart phones are really dumb

I never thought I'd see the day when I dissed technology. In my younger days I loved new technology. To really date myself, cassette tapes were way cool - much better than record albums. CDs were even better! And I really love today's digital music. And I had one of the early cell phones -- called a bag phone. Really thought I was cool and I loved it.

But smart phones...not so much. Yeah, I think they are cool, but I don't like what they are doing to society. Yeah, I'm one of those grumpy broads who hates seeing young people walking around staring at their smart phones, texting, and ignoring the world around them. I hate it even more when I see them doing it while driving. And I can't single out young people - this crosses all age zones.

Did your employer give you a company smart phone? Welcome to "I now work 24/7." Been there, done that - life is too short.

Don't get me wrong - I love the technology. I just think it's taking over social interaction and that is sad.
