    Who Owns Whom?

    So do you own your smartphone or does it own you? Here are a few ways to tell:


    • Do you take your smartphone with you wherever you go?

    No. Actually I have no clue where it is now

    • Is your smartphone the last thing you look at before you go to sleep and the first thing you look at when you wake up?

    Nope. It has never and will never be in my bedroom

    • Do you make or take business calls regularly when away from work?

    No. When work is done, it's done.

    • Do your family or friends give you exasperated looks when you pull out your smartphone constantly?

    No and they have never had a reason to. They will ALWAYS be
    more important than a phone.

    I am addicted. If it didn't have a vibrate function I doubt I would even look at it.

    To all of the questions -- I have all the exact opposite answers as AG! :-). Perhaps this might indicate a slight imbalance in my life? LOL

    Yes - and I feel strange if it's out of my sight for more than 10 secs.

    Is your smartphone the last thing you look at before you go to sleep and the first thing you look at when you wake up?

    Yes - And significant other travels a lot - his parting words are: "Play with
    your phone."


    Do you make or take business calls regularly when away from work?

    Yes - and any others, too.

    Do your family or friends give you exasperated looks when you pull out your smartphone constantly?

    Yes - but they know they are important to me in spite of my addiction.


    Peace......

    Yes. And I did the same with all my cell phones before my BB.

    Is your smartphone the last thing you look at before you go to sleep and the first thing you look at when you wake up?

    Usually.

    Do you make or take business calls regularly when away from work?

    I'm a grad student so I don't really have any "away from work" time.

    Do your family or friends give you exasperated looks when you pull out your smartphone constantly?

    No.


    Many people say that they don't like cell phones or smart phones because they don't want to be chained to them, be always available, always getting email or whatever. I look at it the exact opposite. Never do I have to worry about missing an important call or e-mail. I can go wherever I want and people can still contact me and I can contact them. And of course I just ignore anything I don't want to deal with at the time.

    Yes, I consider you to be CrackBerry's resident "voice of reason".

    Also, I think the author doesn't thing broadly enough regarding this issue. The lines have obviously blurred between business and personal lives WRT smartphones. I use mine for both, and I could answer yes to some of those questions. OTOH, I don't let it control me. What I mean is I use it for lots of communications and information gathering, but if I'm doing something or with someone I care about, I have absolutely no problem putting it down, away, on silent, or simply ignoring it.

    And I also think it's a sweeping generalization to say if one takes a work call or e-mail, he/she feels overly "important". It's just a matter of keeping on top of things, and sometimes we just have to be available. I know that a power plant depends on my being available in a pinch, but I don't feel I'm "all that". Also, I keep these communications to a reasonable length, volume, and as private as possible.

    So I guess it's not necessarily an all or nothing proposition IMHO.

    Yes, because it is my alarm clock.

    Do you make or take business calls regularly when away from work?

    No. I am a student, so I do not have "business calls."

    Do your family or friends give you exasperated looks when you pull out your smartphone constantly?

    No. They are usually busy checking theirs too.
