It's no secret that I loathe smart technology. I cannot for the life of me fathom why anyone would voluntarily purchase something that monitors everything they do and reports it back to some central location. As the saying goes, "There is no Cloud. There's just someone else's computer." It's one of the many reasons my husband and I never owned smartphones and never will.
So when I saw this headline, I must admit I gave a little fist-pump and a cry of "Yes!!" According to ZeroHedge, "Dumb phone sales are soaring as people revolt against 'overwhelming' smartphones." Isn't that the best news you've heard all day?
The article focuses on the inexpensive nature of dumb phones as well as the nostalgia factor, but who cares? In my opinion, the more people who dump the invasive "eye of Sauron in your pocket," the better.
