    Excellent points. I'm glad I Don't have an iPhone, but I did make a conscious decision to limit my cell to only texts and voice. I get so frustrated with groups I notice lately who, instead of sharing each others company, are concentrating more on their little screens. It bodes ill for our personally-interactive future!

    This article was spot on. I totally agree with you, as I am going through a very similar situation myself. Good stuff.

    I have a Kyocera. It's go 3G but I'm not signed up for any extras. I use my phone for calls (and text) only. When I am having a conversation at dinner with my daughter, son-in-law and grandson, I HATE it when he zonks out with his iPhone under the table and is not in any way present or participating with us right there. There's not complaining about it... he zones out. So, the iPhone has stolen any communicating with my grandson from me.

    Two things: I'm a pal of Rahaf Harfoush's---so hi! And I kept reading 'cos I thought you were going to throw your iPhone into Walden Pond. Me, I'm getting more out of my daily journalling (en route to my fourth novel) than any smartphone. I'm with you. Thanks.
