    Default Still Smarting (CTG)

    Still Smarting

    I've been outsmarted by my SmartPhone,
    outmaneuvered, outdone, and outmanned.
    Luckily, I've a SmartWife and SmartChild,
    a SmartFamily will always see you through
    -- unless you let yourself be Dumbed Down.
    Friends, welcome to Civilization for Dummies.

    Nice one Chris. I borrowed Yabuks phone last week. It's a stupid touch screen thing. I never had a clue how it worked. They made me get rid of my phone cos it was an embarrasment.

    Hi Pabs

    I don't have a Smartphone so I am just riffing off the idea of having one. My cameraphone is sophisticated enough and I can't figure out everything it can do and I don't really want to know everything it does. I see these people on the Marc Train between Baltimore and D.C. fiddling with their Blackberries, and just have to tell myself how daft and time consuming it all is. . . And don't get me started on texting. . . particularly while driving which absolutely boggles my mind -- such people deserve to be slung in the slammer and the key thrown away.

    Yes, gotta agree with you on all your points. I haven't got a phone at present. I used to have a company phone but they took it off me to save money. The bill was ?200 per month. A tad excessive. Now I manage without one. Don't miss it at all. Folk complain they can't get in touch with me, but that suits me fine.

    I don't have a mobile simply because I don't wanna look like the jerk the other day picking at a stonewall while he had the phone rammed up against his ear...more to the point I don't want to be disturbed whilst I'm out and about.

    Yes, it's quite pleasant without the phone. When folk make arrangements, when you aint got a phone, they generally stick to the agreed times and meeting places. Used to get sick of the calls telling you they were running late. Hate that. I'm never late.
