Only just noticed all these responses. You all have good points. I'm not dead against them and will eventually get one when my cell phone dies. When i'm out these days suck i high percentage of people are still plugged in. Staring at the phone with the ear plugs in. It obviously as it's uses (films on long journeys) but for the most part when i'm outside i like to take notice of it (having said that were i live is in the country if i lived in a city and spent a lot of time on tube i'd probably feel differently) and knowing how addictive social media is i'm just in a rush to have the internet on me all the time. All possibly a bit odd considering i spend a lot of time using computers, or maybe that's part of the reason.

I dont even own a phone and I dont want to. The reason is, I spend just about every minute when I am home either sleeping or in front of my computer. I am really happy that when I leave the house I experience my surroundings and environment.

@cyberteque, #2

I assume your post is meant in some tongue in cheek way which I don't fully understand. But even at second and third reading, your post just comes across as presumptuous and insulting.

well, too bad

i have an android tablet, that i am continually getting grief over because it's

-too big
-too loud
-too heavy
-too inconvenient

ok, it is "too heavy" because 3/5 of it's weight is battery, that's why I can go 3 days on a full charge

too big? I might need glasses, but I can read the damn thing and find my way, also it must have a high gain antenna, because I get net and sms reception in places other phones don't

too loud, live with it

inconvenient, well as stated on other posts in my bag with at least 2 still digital cameras, 1 film slr, with it's lenses, at least 1 video camera, my ASUS netbook, plus a few knives, tools, etc.

My point was, I can and do leave my home, EVERY FREAKIN DAY, in the wild, with a heap of tech

Is that a problem for a person that

This is an "Ubber Geek/Nerd" forum man, get into it!!

Or get over it!

Embrace the technology!

cyberteque. all I said was that I personally enjoy leaving my tech behind from time to time. I do not care what you do with your tech. I did not mean to imply that people who carry tech around cannot enjoy nature or anything like that. I think I see now what made you react like that, but I was really not trying to make a statement about other people, merely about myself.
