Smartphone advancement has experienced a slowdown. I’m hoping that means I can continue using my small iPhone SE for at least 3-4 years more. It’s unlikely that small phones will be made again, it appears, and I have no use for a phone without a headphone jack. Wireless headphones are all terrible and I don’t need a bunch of adapters to lose.
After that, I am not sure what I will do. I hardly use the phone now as it is and wish I could toss it in the garbage. It’s another mind virus, though not as bad as Facebook. If I could get by with a flip phone I would do that. I could if I didn’t depend on mapping applications so much — but those are the only real apps I use on my phone.
When I retire, I won’t have a retirement party. I’ll have a “torch the smartphone” party.
