Thanks to Mick O’Dowd for finding this.
Leigh Mitchell… The witches and the wizards of yesteryear! Very prophetic! Don’t know what I would do without mine now
Tony May… The mobile phone has been one of the most socially destructive inventions of all time. It has a lot to answer for and has killed off community shopping and drastically reduced people’s interaction with other real people. A simple mobile telephone would have been o.k. but ‘cell phones’ (well named if nothing else!) are a real curse. Now people are more used to interacting with computers they have become more like computers – pedantic and intollerant. I hate mobile phones and will never own one!
Richard Porter… Tony, It is not the device but the user. Please allow me to point out that mobile phones, even simple ones, are ‘cell’ phones because they all use a cellular network.
Tony May… My point about cell phones was that they take over people’s lives to the point that it’s like a jail sentence having one! (lol) I saw a few people in the crowd at the recent F1 G.P. on the t.v. looking at their phones even when the F1 cars were racing past! They must have more money than sense seeing the cost of a ticket to an F1 G.P.! (lol) I also think mobile phone technology is being exploited to shape ‘social engineering’. If we end up in a cashless society then all privacy about everything will be lost and ‘instant fines’ for minor misdemeanors will become possible. Some things are better left to manual than automation…
Richard Porter… As I said. it is up to the user. I share one with my wife. We use it for making and taking calls, nothing else. My wife barely uses it, I seldom do unless there is no alternative.
Sheila Maile… I live on mine as don’t have any real contact with people. It gives me all the information I want. And online shopping. I have smartphone & 2tablets.while one is charging I use the other
Gerry Fortsch… That will never happen?
Andy Qunta… They hit the nail on the head with that!
