The day my iPhone died and …

Today my iphone died, the battery died after two years of struggling with gigabytes of data, billions of messages, images, social media streams, music and keeping up with my life.

I could write a dirge for it, except I have decided to simplify my life.

I pledge to go back to the old days when phone was a phone, a camera was a camera, and a portable music player was a portable music player, a computer was a computer, and you’d read books on paper.

Bye, digital toxicity. It was good while it lasted.

(I will write more on this, so stay tuned if you want to).
