    • I agree. The owners of the phones are to be blamed. In fact, about gun control; the Russian who invented AK-47 died a miserable man. He never anticipated the gun would be used in the manner it is nowadays. He regretted having invented this type of gun.

  1. I have to say I have a smartphone and I hate it. I would much rather have the good old home phone but a smartphone has some upside like in the case of an emergency on the road etc. I hate texting and receiving text messages. Most of them present useless content. But another plus of a smartphone is internet access just about everywhere. Another downside of smartphone is the way some people are so addicted to it and social media and texting that they do not see where they are going. I recently had to literally stop a young woman from crossing a heavy traffic intersection on a red light because her eyes were glued to the phone…

    • It’s good you saved that young woman. These smartphones are making us too busy. While I’m not good in socializing online or offline, I usually use smartphone to learn more, research and write (and play games).
      It’s sad that the smartphones have reduced people into some kind of robots.
