#BlackFriday: Buy More Gadgets or Ditch The Tech?

I’m as guilty of this as everyone else (possibly more so) and I feel like I am missing part of me if my smart phone or tablet are not within arm’s reach.

So before I go off and hunt for bargains in the Black Friday sales I’m going to be theoretical, pose a question and then spend my money on things I probably don’t need!

Are we relying on gadgets too much and losing out on our abilities of natural human interaction?

A couple of things prompted this question. Firstly, a fantastic video called “Can We Auto-Correct Humanity?”

Secondly, a photographer who edited photos to remove smart phones and tablets were shared in a post by qz.com called “Our Strange and Lonely New World” – I love the results!

What do you think?

Are we using technology too much and forgetting how to communicate properly?

I hold my hands up and admit that I do. I also really don’t see how I can change that now and even if I actually would want to.

So, like I said as soon as I have published this post I will be off to Amazon to find out what new gadgets I can get for a bargain price in their Black Friday sale! You should too…

  1. Totally loved both Can We Auto-Correct Humanity and Our Strange and Lovely New World — I just picked up two sale priced Google Homes for a friend 🙂
    Technology may be changing how we connect, but people still connect. That’s what we do 🙂

      1. LOL!
        I was listening to the radio through Google Home, (better sound than the radio that used to sit on our kitchen counter) and the volume kept going up. ???
        My son was using the app on his phone to mess with the volume. Smart-ass.
