Sounds like it's time for an intervention!Gosh I feel like a heathen! My kids got me the I pod n I have to admit I'm addicted. I don't use the desk top computer hardly at all. I can ck stuff like this site, other preppers items, shopping list, news n yes ck on kids thru Facebook. Yes we talk n visit bit I get instant pics n download them. When Sandy hit it was my lifeline. Don't have house phone, don't need it. That's just my thoughts on subject.
Smart phone (Android) user here. I "use" my phone for about 6 solid hours a day. It is my alarm clock, my scheduler, my internet radio provider (I stream over 2 hours every day), the general means I use to check and admin forums (I read about 6 forums daily and am founder/admin of two of them), get my weather, news, social media, and I've now read close to 100 books on my kindle app. I often forward 2 other phone lines to this device so I don't have to carry more phones, use a scanner app to track local police and fire calls, and take or send about 10 texts a day and between 5 - 10 calls a day. Actual phone use is rather limited. Computer use is almost non stop.
You just described me perfectly. I hate cell phones.My mobile phone is an ATT Go Phone, pay-as-you-go. It is for emergencies, or if my wife needs to get ahold of me for any reason. Only 3 people have the number - my wife, my two daughters. I use maybe 15 minutes a month, if that.
We have a land line at the farm. I talk on that maybe once a month or less.
I do not do facebook or any of that other stuff, either. I am not really interested in what other people are doing, nor do I consider myself interesting. I'm just a dull and boring guy.
