I love neo-hipsters taking the torch from their grandparents who couldn't accept a PC over a typewriter, the same concept for phones. There are entire free phones out there in terms of hardware, and 10 different aosp / replicant roms to choose from. yet you jack off to some closed proprietary piece of shit from 2000 that can barely run java and call this "slavery"

i’ve been looking to do so lately but it seems inevitable that as a functioning member of society you will need a social media page and a smartphone. there are so many situations i think of everyday where a business or a government has placed all its chips on the expectation of people having a smartphone or a good internet connection. it’s seriously a redpill/bluepill situation

Why are you fags so against smartphones? You don't have to be a mindless social media consuming drone staring into the screen 24/7. They come in handy for a lot of different reasons. The only reason smartphones suck is because service providers are such fuckin jews but whatever.

Brody Green

Low spec freetard phones that utterly failed or vaporware like Purism’s Librem.

Nolan Ward
Nolan Ward

the reason why is because they are turning into their grandparents just the same who fought PCs in the 80s over typewriters. there is absolutely, positively no other reason than it is too new. the difference and reason why it is funny is because there are entire freetard organizations like mentioned that will be ignored by them. only comparison is if some company in the 80s made a configurable typewriter that never ran out of tape and the general consensus was to not use it because "im bettur than u!!!!!!!"

Could you escape the smartphone slavery?
yes. the only reason i have a smartphoine is because i got it for free ( galaxy S2 ) . i only use it log into my steam account. and sometimes to verify a online transaction with my TAN. thats it.

never understood why people are enslaved to phones. if i want to surf / chat and play games i do that on my PC, much better experience. if i want to talk to people i use teamspeak.

i dont have any friends who would call me anyway. i also never leave my house so the 'mobil' argument doesnt matter to me.

so yeah, i dont really get it. why are people enslaved to these?

Michael James

I've never had a smart phone and still have a really old flip phone, but mostly because i'm poorfag (and honestly I don't go out much so for a long time had not much use for one). I'm worried though , verizon's shutting off the network it uses soon I think so I'm a bit screwed.

Had one smartphone and went back to a basic thereafter.
Apps
Literally just some normie garbage way to access a website or perform a function so simple I could script it in python in less than the time it takes to count the number of trackers in the "app."
convenient
Bollocks. Having an actual plan for your day is what makes things easy. Going AWOL from your tasks to chase "notifications," and being so flighty from all the same that you miss obvious things is not "helpful."
can't take your laptop everywhere autist
I can and have since the late 90s. They weigh approximately nothing now, even if you want a chunky old classic thinkpad. I don't even have one of those faggy messenger bags, just a cheap backpack for weekends and a briefcase for work.
lolholyshit grampa get with the times
I've kept up with all the trends and I'm going to out-last all of them. I wrote backend for some of the biggest "apps," that I personally despise. I'm now working on web logic that will, hopefully, render a lot of these obnoxious mobile "ecosystems," obsolete.

You're not wrong, but this behavior comes off as being a Luddite who doesn't like to put in extra effort. Ultimately it's your own demise, but I suppose it also matters what your priorities in life are.

And finally they gave us a set of games in which we are to participate in, but not so that we could play with someone, but so that they could play with us.
