Still Smarting (CTG)
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.

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.
