Smart Phones – How Much Do We Really Need Them? [POLL]

Smart Phones, who needs ’em!  

I joke all the time about when I retire and get to “unplug” from this digital world.  Call me old school but I think my generation got along just fine when the phone was plugged into the wall and on occasion when you had to call someone while away from home there was this thing called a “Phone Booth” where you could actually drop a dime and voila, you could call someone.

It was crazy technology!

Then came along the digital age and with it, more crap and nonsense that was never needed to make the world a better place to live.  It made it more convenient, but not better.

It also made us much lazier and even dumbed down society as a whole.  No one reads anymore, it’s on the internet and if it’s on the internet, it must be true.

So back to the pocket computers, ie, the smartphone. Hey, I get it. I’m sure there are a few of you out there who have to have one for work of some kind or another.  Or do you? How necessary is it for you to do your job; or does it just make it easier.  I am willing to bet that 90% of the people who own smartphones use them soley for personal use so they can be “connected” anytime or anyplace.

Personally, I can do my job just fine without one and I work in one of the most advanced technological industries there is today.  Who really needs one?  So I was just curious what everyone’s thoughts on the subject was and looking for honest answers on my poll.

Don’t get me wrong, nothing wrong with having one, I am just trying to justify mine because right now I want to throw it in a lake.
