Transcript of Smartphones' slaves


Do we realize that
we are addicted?

What internet is
doing with our brain?
Where will we
be in 100 years?
What’s happening
with us?
Just a normal Thursday...
- we have to respond immediately
- we ruin our quality times by checking the phone
- we didn't pay too much attention to people
- phantom cellphone - we feel out phone vibrating
- we are stressed if we don't have the phone around
- FOMO - fear of missing out - you feel sad when you lost a party and see pictures
- cannot pay too much attention around (5 sec of concentration now, 12 minutes 10 years ago)
- instinct to verify every time the social network
- more important to get likes and to show to the others where have we been, instead of enjoying that moment.
- cannot memorize too many things
- no more space orientation (Google maps, GPS)
- no more fresh air, small breaks are on social network
- when we are doing something, the first thought is to show to your friends that you also did "that"
5 years: the Patent Wars end, Apple win
15 years: Google glasses
25 years: extreme miniaturization (phones turns into a single use and disposable device)
50 years: wearable (wristbands) phones with voice activation
75 years: microchip and thoughts connect instantly when people dial to “call” each other
100 years: climate change, civilization crumble, loss of natural resources, communication reverts to dialogues or to individuals throwing rocks at each other.
This world on smartphones and with smartphones, is good and bad, but we have to do something until we don’t lose our own life, our memory, our brain actions, our desires, our creativity or our simplicity as human beings.

That's a social problem!
Going to a bar
- Zorki – 10 people inside are using their phone at a first sight; around me 5 girls at the same table, 2 of them are using constantly their phone
Going home
- not a rush hour, but in 25 minutes I counted 56 people that write/read/talk on the phone

- home alone, but I’m talking on the phone with 3 persons, that is like 1 hour, and even while I’m eating or changing my clothes
