That blasted little invention. Deviously designed to keep tabs on us by various authoritative figures. Parents, bosses, girlfriends, boyfriends or just friends. Everyone uses this ingenious little rectangular piece of nightmare to know one thing: “where are you?!?”. The most popular question every asked on the cell phone. Even if the person is in no way connected to where you actually physically are or rather where you were supposed to be, it is the only question they seem to want to ask.
So what drives us to own this gadget?
Well there has to be some upsides of owning a device that transforms an owner into a walking tracking device.
Primarily people own a cellphone for the accessories that come with it. Cameras, music and well let’s face it, bluetooth is kind of cool. But with modern gadgets like the PSP offering every kind of accessory to match a cell phone, people must be out of their minds to actually go ahead and buy a device that is programmed to ring EVERY time they decide to take a shower or ever EVERY time they try to get intimate with their significant other.
My answer? We all contribute to a massive worldwide effort to ditch our reliance on this awful creation. I do my bit every time i don’t pick it up. Resisting the temptation to know who it is on the other line when i do not recognize a number. Resisting the urge to look at it at period intervals to check for messages and missed-calls. I mean really, what in the world can be that important?
People could very well survive and also keep in touch with friends and find ways to be social before its invention. It is time we go back to the basics and not rely on a small device that relays only our voice to people who deserve so much more. Let us not let the romance of actually meeting a person die out or be substituted with a simple call.
