“Stop playing with that phone!! Go do something else; like watch TV…”
Yes. I´ve actually said that. To my kids.
When I first got my smartphone, a few years back, it was revolutionary. I was amazed by all that it could do. The emailing made everything so easy, I could be anywhere and still check it. The camera was also great. With it I never missed a “kodak moment”. Facebook became fun again. And the world became smaller, I could talk to my siblings in the US for free!! Being online all the time. What a bliss.
“Hey, what song is that? the one that plays as Christly Blinkly drives the Ferrari in National Lampoons?”
“Hang on I´ll YouTube it.” It´s Little Boy Sweet.
Then came Wordfeud. Crazy Mouth. Twitter. Blocket (Craig´s list in Sweden). The lightsaber. ibeer. Yatzy. Paper Toss. You see where this is going right? I was hooked on things I didn’t need.
At first I just loved it. But now I kind off hate that I love it so much.
Kids here, where I live in Sweden, are so into these new gadgets. Most have either their own Ipad, a Laptop or their parents old smart phone.
What´s it like where you live?
What are your own rules or principal?
