Beyond the Smart Phone

Trend Piece Prediction

vicemag:

Within a few years there will be a trend piece about how having a shitty phone (specifically one that doesn’t offer email functionality) is a new sign of power. Profiles of important figures will note how they carry a flip phone, or, even better, carry no phone at all. The reasoning behind this being that only a powerful person could have the luxury of not having to constantly be on alert and available via their work email.
