You’ll Have To Pry My Cellphone From My Cold, Dead Hands

Rory has another one of his 24-hour questions and in this edition he asks, “How lost would you be without your cellphone/mobile phone?”

My short answer is “totally and completely.” The only time these days that I’m not using my cellphone is when I’m sleeping or driving. Otherwise, my iPhone is with me and always on.

I’m writing, reviewing, editing, and posting from my phone. I’m reading my newsfeeds, writing, reading, and responding to emails and text messages, ordering everything from food, meals, tools, clothing, shoes, electronics, toys, and sundries from my phone.

I watch YouTube videos and listen to music on iTunes. I read books on my Kindle app. I check the weather on my weather app. I use my phone to take and store all my photos. I also play games (mostly solitaire) on my iPhone.

On rare occasions I will even answer an incoming call or make an outgoing call.

So, yeah, Rory, I admit that I’d be lost without my cellphone. But thanks to the satellite maps app on my iPhone, I never get lost anymore.

    What if I’m using my cell phone when I’m sleeping… or driving?

      Then you’re either very talented or very reckless.

        I use it for directions. I can also speak to get my car to connect to my contacts and call somone for me, hands free.

      Your post reminded me that I totally forgot in my post to mention that I use my phone as my camera.

    I’m in the same boat. But I do connect with family and friends via my phone. Make video calls with my grandkids too. Lots of fun.

    Wish I knew how to use mine better. I use it, exclusively, to take photos now but don’t have the foggiest idea how to post on it..or to even view blogs.

      Download the mobile WordPress app in the App Store (iPhone) or Google Play (for an Android phone).

    I have to agree that mobile phones are indispensable..
    But that’s because they are powerful ‘life-computers’ without which most of our connected activities would not exist. I can blog, read, message, create, edit and olive record with mine… and that’s not mentioning the vast world of photo taking, editing and mood enhancing. My phone has now taken over my left wrist, in the form of the stunning Apple Watch. When, clutching lots of stuff, I take a call in a busy public space on my wrist, I realise how embedded I am in this amazing Tech.

      I, too, have an Apple Watch. I’m never out of touch with the world.

    Great image use for the content Master F. I think Steve Tanham sums up your answers here very well also Fandango ‘you are successfully embedded into the technology’ maybe the next step is to simply have the tech sewn into your body ……….. l am sure that option will be somewhere in the future of mankind, when the need to keep up with the robotics industry is at an all time high 🙂
