So I recently got a new phone, and spent plenty of time messing around on it and figuring out everything it could do. I also spent some time putting everything on it, such as my contacts/calendar dates, and apps. Then I realized something. If I ever lost this phone I'd have to start from scratch all over again. I certainly don't remember anyones phone number except for my family and best friend. Our phones have become such an essential part of our lives, helping to keep up with coworkers/due dates and the like that if someone lost their phone they'd be helpless for the days until their replacement came. I know that if this new phone broke i'd never remember all the due dates I have for work or school. It just seems that as we give more responsibility to our devices and invest in them, we become more dependent upon them. Is this a bad thing? A good thing? I don't know.
