I live in Manhattan. A smartphone is basically required and not for downtime, for getting around.

And don't be judgy about the people at the Dr's office who are "connected."
This is the problem lol One of my good friends was anti-smartphones for that reason of avoiding connectedness. Then he got a smartphone and now he loves it. And this is a guy who talks to strangers constantly.
While not entirely related, I think it's relevant that I prefer wired keyboards & mice. I dislike having the extra hassle of replacing batteries in wireless ones, and will often trade in convenience for less upkeep/hassle.
Woah I got real preachy there lol sorry

I'm actually looking forward to switching back to a wired mouse on my PC. I sit in weird positions and obscure the receiver sometimes.

i can't even handle a smartphone, i am planning to get one but i rather buy it my self and take a low budget sim-only call+sms+internet bundle.
the one i am planning to take has a qwerty keyboard on the side, ppl always keep saying to me that i have to take one within the touch screen but i already have fights with a navigation system, you can expect a phone like that smashed against the wall within a few hours. (if you're lucky)

I like my Smartphone, and in fairness, I only ended up getting it because it was free - the company who provides the service, I have been with for something like 7 years, and so to keep me loyal, they give me stuff while I still pay a pretty reasonably priced plan that covers all the things I need to do. I tend to be less attached to it that some of the people in my classes are attached to their phones, but they are mostly 5-6 years younger than me, so idk. I like to use mine for stuff like checking bus/train times, sometimes I load books onto it, or puzzle games if I'm stuck waiting somewhere. Oh, and the GoogleSky app is really awesome - I like it for stuff like that, I guess it's not really necessary for me, but it is a nice treat to have one.
Then again, I'm more attached my computers - games, photoshop, keeping up with distant friends, learning about technology, discussing stuff on forums (more learning, depending on the forum). I suppose others might not be as attached to their pcs/laptops. The way online communities function is something I've always been fond of and found rewarding, especially in games and arty type communities - lots of trade and barter and general sharing of things.
I sometimes feel old when I have to explain to the young whipper-snappers what IRC is.

What helped me feel older and continues to make me feel older all the time is how young I think high school and college kids look.
