    Seems to me, technology is advancing faster than human common sense.

    Not surprising at all. Corporate greed. Anything new here? People's privacy is Corporates' goods to sell to these "App developers". As long as money can be made by selling your privacy, it's like asking the fox to guard the henhouse, if you trust the Corporate with your privacy.

    On another note, this modern society is getting out of control, and adults are acting more and more like children when it comes to smartphones. Many adults can not move their eyes away from the screen of a smart phone even when they are walking, just like a three-year-old would do to his toys. Grow up people, ditch these electronic toys and get a normal life. The uncontrollable urge for some to share their selfies and "Photoshoped" pictures in social network is a mental disease that has to be treated.

    I personally still only use a flip phone that can only call/text. It meets my needs perfectly.

    Totally agree. :thumb:
    And I thought I was the only one using a flip phone. My eyes are getting bad, might have to go to the flip phone Jitterbug. :argh: :argh:

    Yeah, me too. Was using Samsung with Android before, but then switched back to Nokia just recently. No need for extra features like location, fingerprint etc. Just stick to call/SMS. Otherwise, I am comfortable with my PC/Linux.
