Unsmartphoning for dummies:
The actual plan was to test this Samsung Nexus and try for a while and then sell it. But just after some weeks it felt down on the wrong spot and the display cracked. So I kept it for longer and it´s a fine phone I have to say.
BUT it comes with all the faults the smartphone devices have.
– Battery life panik, you can not stay overnight without a charger with you.
– Displays are way to fragile. You might argue that a Notebook display will also crack when you drop but. But a mobile phone is designed to be carried around all day. So from my point of view it has to be constructed that it can handle some bumps. But it´s a smartphone seen also from the point of the producer. Short lifespan and high addiction to upgrade!
And the worst of all, the addiction to constantly feeding this Tamagotchi with your attention. Which means you fall into the habit of permanently checking the status of your mails, facebook, blogstats, sms, whatsapp …
You hardly see anyone not fumbling around with his smartphone nowadays. Even with friends and family around. When I recognized the same pattern of behavior on me I know I had to change something.
So I went back to the well engineered Sony Ericsson 108i Cedar (used for about 25 Euros). Around 3 days of battery life. On purpose to display how tough it is, I drop it without any fear floors to challenge IPhone users if they can do the same with theirs. The phone has got an email client so not a too hard step back from technology – and a bit of a cheat. I´m happy now and not a a bit less smarter I would say. Time is rare and the monkey brain is busy enough.
Sunday morning coffee, fresh baked rye bread and pfote lesson: While the lady was still having here sunday beauty sleep, I was able to digg deeper into Rohan Anderson´s Wholelarderlove book. Reading until the rye bread was ready to be taken out of the oven. Just in time. The bread was ready when the lady woke up to have her coffee be served. Not long after the dogs showed up to get their share of old bread – Tillman learned the Pfote now! We are ready for breakfast and the day. Enjoy your sunday.
Whole Larder Love Cookbook – by Rohan Anderson: Today I received my copy of Rohan Anderson´s great cookbook.What started as a blog by a great photographer taking images of his garden, hunts, kitchen and his proactive life turned finally into a book. What made his blog so famous is that this guy is living a live many of us would love to. Living from his own land, learning and improving techniques never used or meanwhile forgotten by the “civilized” world. Taking the time to prepare a meal the ingredients could be proud of. Teaching/showing his kids a lifestyle they can be glad about. And giving it back to him sometime when they appreciate what they inherited by their father. Well done Rohan, thanks for sharing your life with us. Here again the link to his blogand here to his book.
