Unawareness: addicted to our I-Phones?

Texting and walking

.

How life has changed since I was a kid. No internet, cell phones, cable T.V., fax machines, face time, text messages or the bills to pay for all of it when I grew up.

 

That could be me in the pic, texting while walking, unaware.

 

Losing my phone brings the same panic as losing my wallet.

 

How about you?

 

I forget what life was like before these distractions.

 

We have far more abilities available now, but it seems peace of mind and happiness have diminished for all of us.

 

Our kids never knew a time without these social media pressures and addictions.

 

How do you feel about this?

  1. It certainly becomes rather difficult to be present if our devices have shifted from being tools to seemingly being everything. I try as much as I can to keep to a tool mindset.

  2. My grandkids and screen time.

    It is a battle

    Thanks for the input

    I can’t help but think that on some level (and I just came up with this for the first time right now), we are becoming that space-age society that The Jetsons cartoon forecast. We are handing over so many of our former daily tasks, like pllaying the music (“Alexa…. play …”), turning on/off the lights, dimming them (“Alexa, dim the lights …”). Our stereo systems of old almost don’t exist, as with CD’s, they have jettisoned to mp3 files and mini sound systems. Oh don’t get me going, its all part of the world we are evolving into — and I kind of hate it too, but then, I’m old … lol.

  4. Remember Jane with the mask talking on the screen with a friend. That is face time 30 years later

    Thanks for your input

    My boy Elroy
