Cell Phone Replaces Many Gadgets

. at . 2 comments

“If it keeps up, man will atrophy all his limbs but the push-button finger,” (Frank Lloyd Wright).

I use fewer gadgets today than when I was younger. In fact some gadgets are almost obsolete or on the way into oblivion simply because of cell phones.

Gone are my wrist watch, radio, address book, typewriter, home phone, many face-to-face meetings, and paper calendar. A cell phone can handle all these functions (and more) quite easily.

Once I become fully evolved technology-wise, my cell phone will also serve as a:

  • camera,
  • bank (deposits),
  • TV,
  • gaming unit,
  • photo album,
  • payment device,
  • and a portal to the Internet.
  • And as more and more people text, voicemail is also becoming extinct.

“One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man” (Elbert Hubbard).

Your Turn . . . What gadgets does your cell phone replace?

    My phone is simply an addition to my home phone and my watch. If I had a smart phone, I would be addicted to it. It’s surprising how many people walk around staring at their smart phones like zombies.

      I would be addicted to a smart phone too.

      And not only when walking around, also when in a group of people. That just seems so rude!
