Slave to the Smartphone

Our phone is an anxiety inducing device.

Always connected, always contactable.

We blur the boundaries. We lose the privacy.

A flicker of screen, a jolt of vibration.

It has become a round-the-clock job.

But phones are comforting.

It’s the first thing we reach for in most situation.

We could live without our wallet but not our phone.

It’s the single most important device for most people.

Are all phones inherently bad?

I believe not.

It’s striking a balance between getting enslaved by the phone, or getting an enriching experience out of it.
