My Smartphone isn’t even Smart enough to be Dumb. Sentience is required to have even low level human intelligence. But the damn thing doesn’t know the meanings of words. It’s a simulation. It’s also addictive as hell, and over-complicates my life. The dings. The dings are maddening. I’m seriously thinking of downgrading to something simple that just makes phone calls.
I think Smartphones are like DivX. It just took longer for people to figure out how backwards the technology was.
Look at all these “Apps”. All I see is an “Application-ette” where I’ve downgraded, significantly, from the same type of program that I could be using on a Desktop with a Mechanical Keyboard and a decent sized screen. I’m not smoking that cigarette, I want a bag of organic fresh tobacco and cigar rolling papers.
