Dumb Phone Eulogy

I am one of the few people who’ve probably traded in their smart phone for a dumb phone. By dumb phone I mean a phone that pretty much just makes calls and texts. For over eight years now I’ve scorned the smart phone market because of the increasing negative effects I feel it has on people. The concept of being constantly connected always presents itself as a great thing but often leads to isolated interactions with people because they are busy checking their Facebook or Twitter feeds or playing some new game.
