It’s always interesting to notice changes in your own behaviour and I think a lot of people can relate to this post.
I always used to wear a wristwatch, most of the time a cheap Casio watch. For me it was always a practical thing, not so much an accessory. Actually, I hated putting on and wearing a watch, but I simply like to keep track of time. Whenever I forgot to put on a watch, I really missed being able to see what time it was.
When I got an iPhone 3GS, wearing a watch became less and less important. Funny enough, before with cell phones this was not the case.
I noticed I started using my iPhone as a pocket watch:
– Take out of pocket
– Press button (on pocket watches, ‘the button’ would often open the casing)
– Watch the time
– Press button again
– Put back in pocket
Of course there are numerous things that the smartphone has made obsolete to some degree.
Of course there are numerous things that the smartphone has made obsolete to some degree. As for me the list would be something like; camera (obviously), calculator, flashlight, memo recorder (yes I really had cassette memo recorder), compass, spirit level (waterpas), calendar and agenda, guitar tuner, alarm clock, etcetera etcerera.
