What is your excuse to yourself to possess and use a smartphone?
Do you consider yourself unable to do things people ten years ago could do?
Do you consider yourself too important to not be contactable during your commute, your job, your meals, your sleep?
Do you consider yourself unable to stand a couple minutes without distraction through instant gratification?
Do you do "work" on it, and consider trading usage comfort, self-controlled platform, self-controlled storage and self-controlled software for less weight to carry in contrast to, eg., a laptop?
Do you think it's fine, because you only use it for $USECASE, and you think what you are using it for is okay even if the way most people use their smartphone is worse? Or because you use $MODEL with $SOFTWARE instead of what you think is worse?
Did you submit yourself to the system, because it's easy and comfortable and everyone else you know does it too anyway? I thought you were a cyberpunk. But only for a bit of after-work fun, probably. Or maybe you don't even want to associate with cyberpunk, you're just here because you watched some anime and have a little technical affinity. Maybe this is the wrong place for you. Or maybe it is the wrong place for me.
Why do you have a smartphone?
…or did you actually already think about this, but find yourself unable to stop? This is on purpose:http://www.tristanharris.com/essays/http://www.journals.uchicago.edu/doi/abs/10.1086/691462
