The Curse of the Smart Phone

In my post on Monday, I argued that smart phones were dumb, and dumb phones were smart.  The same day I lost my dumb cell phone.

It’s now been missing for 6 days.  Coincidence?

I don’t think so.

The curse of the smart phone.  Somehow, the smart phones were listening.  They struck back with a vengeance.

Since Monday I languished under the curse.  I even had to borrow my teenage son’s cell phone while I was at Biblical’s faculty retreat (a great time, btw).  Finally today, I figured out how to re-activate my previous dumb phone (so it’s not just my phone that’s dumb).

Be careful what you say about your phone.  Do you believe in phone curses?
