    Imagine the lives wed have saved if 5500 years ago people would have realized that heavy things belong right where they are. But no! They had to go invent the wheel and the rest is history.

    Imagine all the music we wouldn't have if not for the wheel.

    I have a Samsung candy bar style phone that replaced my Nokia candy bar style. I wish I could get a Jitterbug that wasn't stuck with their service but could be used with mine as my phone costs me $70 a year. I like those style of phones where you charge the battery once a week and you don't have/use internet junk. I generally write or print the bit of directions I need if going somewhere, and there is only one store where I would like the look up the price stuff, as it is a damaged freight store where things have been a bargain to really overpriced.

    There is one "smart phone" that is being developed that I am interested in as well as two that are not available in this country. I think the one being developed, really doesn't have the cell broadcast bit and they are expecting it to use wireless (Purism).
    I tire of people expecting the phones to think for them. I have had idiots yell at me 'because Google told them to call us" when searching for a business name, and they don't realize that a common name can be across multiple states and an area code is an actual thing that tells you if there in your area or not.

    I fought against Smartphones for years and finally broke down and got one......and love it! The web at my fingertips anywhere, camera, photos, news, maps, music, everything you could want or need. I got a deal on a Motorola E through Boost Mobile and pay $35/mo. for a ridiculous amount of service.

    I like my phone too!
    Texting is such a gift to those of us who have trouble hearing.
    I like having a camera with me, and a flashlight, and my calendar, and an ebook in a pinch. I use my weather and air quality apps a lot as well.

    I do prefer reading and writing on real paper, and even paper maps vs digital. I do hate getting phone calls (almost always junk calls.)
