the x is camped in opulence, grace, and grandeur. A device of the future it is said. But the reality is that it a haughty irreverent piece of hardware that panders to the Most basic human emotions that Apple now says they are fighting. Device-attention addiction. Smartphones were first marketed as a handheld computer with the internet two taps away. Today that seems like an afterthought with the onslaught of features that no one really needs or used. Instead, these features are tearing apart the social fabric of society. Apple knows this. What exactly is the purpose of a screen time report? Everyday there is a new story of someone accidentally dying over a selfie. Or parents struggling over how to control iPad iPhone device addiction. The futureness of the iPhone as it is marketed is the sign we’ve reached peak iPhone. And peak mental and bodily sickness. For instance, futureness Of faceid as some 1000x order of magnitude technological leap in security that is necessary is simply an insulting user experience for 99.9% of people. It’s not faster. It’s not easier to use. Maybe to go back to the future we’ve got to go back into the past. Downgrade your device and perhaps you will unburden yourself from the technological sickness that enamates from the iPhone X, xs, and whatever 2019 notched phone they’ll sell. The x was a great experience because it pushes the user to justify sometime that’s completely unnecessary and toxic. I’m going back to the 4.7” phones and won’t part take in further poisoning my life and mind. Instead of living my life through the constructs of the device I will live outside it. For the sake of your brain, I hope you do too.
