How our phones own us

I recently got a new phone. And I won’t lie – it has been an amazing experience. Revelatory, even. I now know of at least 20 new ways to waste my time, be it through new games, ‘productivity tools’ or cruising fake news, I have truly enhanced my ability to procrastinate.

I know at this point I should bemoan the ubiquitous use of mobiles. But honestly, why bother? I am just as addicted as everyone else. Besides, the whole anti-tech lobby are morbidly pretentious (not to mention crushingly dull). Sure, smartphones are bad for kids – I get it – the rest of us, however, should be free to shun the real world with its all it’s high-res drudgery and low-level fakery.

Who needs reality when screenlife looks this good?
