One spreads knowledge and makes if available for everyone who knows the language.
The other one costs several 100 € and spreads knowledge that's already easily available.
But you can work with computers and legit cut time with washing machines. Smart phones just make things slightly easier in the most retarded way. Instead of writing down the things you need to buy at the supermarket you can use your phone, awesome.
People break their smartphones all the time, nice you aren't as unfortunate. Charging is still a pain, instead of charging once a day, you disable a bunch of stuff and only need to charge ever second day! I'm not using not having a smartphone as a status symbol, I'm just making a point.
You don't need a computer on the outside. Pretty much everything relevant can be done with a brick phone and conventional methods like reading the street signs and asking people for directions.
When you pick up your mom and can't sit around just listening to music or look at trees for 5-10 minutes, that's just weird.
Most people are retards, people break their phones all the time.
True, not everyone uses them as a status symbol, but those who do are cancer. And everyone is pushed into having one.
If you are at work or in class you should focus on that, browsing Cred Forums then is retarded.
Sure, it's about how you use the technology.
But while computers are really useful and required for people to do their job, smartphones are barely to such an extend.
People break their phones all the time, that's just how it is. Don't defend it with "I never broke mine though!"
I can hold conversations with those people. But isn't it bothersome that people can't even go out and eat without having to look at their phone constantly and that that's their first instinct instead of just enjoying their meal or talking to the people?
