Are Smartphones Our Next Addiction?

October 21, 2010 by  

The smart phone, can it be called America’s new past time? At one point we called it baseball, but is it really still baseball? Just think about it. I’m sure a lot of Americans still go to baseball games. We love to get hotdogs, popcorn, and beer as we watch the sluggers try and slam one out of the park. Most of the time though I can guarantee that we are texting, taking pics with our smartphone, playing a game or two, and even updating our Twitter and Facebook statuses. We’re addicted to the smartphone…

The picture below I believe came from a Windows 7 phone ad. Although the Windows 7 phone is pretty dismal compared to the iPhone or even Droid, they make a good point in the spot. The premise of their phone apparently is that the phone is so good at showing you the information you need right away that you can get back to your life. Like I said though there is a counter message in there saying we spend too much time on our smart phones.

We all want a smartphone, and right now the iPhone is the king of the crop. With it we have a much better experience with a cellphone. Easy access to the full web, great apps, visual voicemail, even the texting is a rich feature of a smartphone. Our smart phones can even get us deals based on our location that it got us directions to… I know the smartphone is great but let’s take a step back and remember that the smartphone is there to help improve our everyday lives, and if we forget to get off our phones and live then we’ve missed the point.

I’ve had the conversation with many people that are against smart phones, and I see where they come from with their arguments. They say get off the phone and enjoy the time we spend together. It’s a thought that smartphone or not we all need to remember. So here is my final summation of advice…

Use your smart phone to it’s fullest potential, it’ll make your life easier. It at least does for me, but don’t miss out on interacting with other humans. Especially your loved ones. Use it to reserve a restaurant or order flowers for them and then put it down and spend some time with them. These are just my two cents, tell me what you think about a smart phone addiction.
