Sometimes I think it would be nice to go back to a "dumbwatch" and a "dumbphone". You know...a watch that had hands and numbers on it and you had to wind it for it to keep time and a phone that was avocado green and had a rotary dial on it and a 10ft spiral cord that was tangled so bad it was only 2ft long.

Thankfully, I don't feel the need to have the "latest and greatest" whatever. Ever.

why do people want a smaller and smaller screen to ruin your eyes, not to mention holding the watch up to your mouth to talk on the phone?
