Its pretty easy to turn off all tracking and spying methods on your phone...

And its nice to have anything you need to know at your fingertips as another member pointed out...

Not to mention games... a camera, various nifty tools to help your every day life...

I could live without the smart phone... but why would i...

I've got an old flip phone, I like it.

I try to avoid contributing to the algorithms whenever I can, there's just something so depressing about all of my interests, loves and hates being reduced to binary.


if you could see what two Korean girls peeing on each other looked like in binary, you would change your tune.

Yes, you should try you best to mitigate the personal information you allow on your phone.

But being able to carry the whole of human knowledge in your pocket is useful.

And the memes are fun too.

google says




Non-GPS cell phones can be tracked by using free services, such as Google Latitude. However, if you have already lost your phone and do not have any programs or apps that help you track it, then it can't be traced. ... All you need is a phone, Google account and a computer.


so you're part of the tracked club as well. Having said that it is nauseating watching the attention span of the switched on connected to their fix.

My wife keeps bugging me to get an iphone and like you I refuse. So I'm a dinosaur, big deal. I'm a living anachronism anyway, got to keep that style going!

Tracking my phone is similar as tracking the car of Gustavo Fring.
