The advent of the smartphone has brought with it a sickness.
The incensant need to document every aspect of your life in image. Now when anyone decides to get a new phone the first thing they ask, “Ine ma megapixel managani?“- “How many megapixels does it have?”
Here they’re referring to the camera, but that’s how phones are ranked now apparently.
My problem comes with the primates granted this amazing camera quality.
This is something a number of people believe in. They believe it with every bone in their body, every ounce in their being.
While in some cases this holds true, the same realities apply:
A story can be told so many times it becomes difficult to distinguish fact from fiction.
The tale of the Bane however, is real. Very real.
It is said, a long time ago a king, King Hey had run out of options. His people tormented by a dark presence. A presence that not only attacked the minds, but drove them to do the unthinkable. Six of his sons buried only the seventh remained. Only through the bravery of Naze was this presence bound deep in the catacombs.
From that day on, this presence was known as the Bane.
Continuing the story…
The week is up. Now, my opinion.
It was not a full week, I completely forgot I had to Thrive for three days I think.
With the hustle and bustle of modern life, it gets difficult to remember that you have to use one app to try and limit your phone use.
I had the same type of experience with the Stop Breathe Think app which keeps track of daily uses. I would only use it when I was really stressed and needed to clear my mind.
Of the days that I did use Thrive successful, I did get stuff done. Got some progress on the reading challenge I set myself and I finally caught up with the notes I had been putting off.
In conclusion, Thrive is a good idea but with the wrong implementation:
You’re using an app to stop you from using your apps.
If you do give it a try, let me know how it goes. Maybe it will work better for you than it did for me…
This one I cannot give abject yes or no as I’m still confounded. I’ll only give my thoughts on the matter.
This is something that I have heard mentioned a number of times.
My assumption is that it’s something said to grab attention more than anything else, the truth in it, I doubt.
Now what exactly is being referred to that’s better when bigger? One can only assume…
Could a bigger house better? Or perhaps a car? Maybe I’m over thinking this and it’s something as simple as cup size or penis length.
What ever it may be, will someone please help enlighten me. I have been rattling my mind for a long time now.
In this digital world, we practically live our lives on mobile devices.
The need to constantly check the timeline, immediately check every notification as it comes in and respond to each and every message as they arrive. This has become our lives.
Has this dependance on the smartphone reduced our productivity as a species?
Some words from the team
This is the question I will try to answer by using myself as a guinea pig with the aid of an app I found on the PlayStore….
When I did my review of shows I enjoy, I intentionally left one out because I believe this one deserves its own post, not only because of the reaction I get when I suggest it to people, but also because of what it has brought back for me.
We all remember comedy shows like Friends, when funny was still funny and the humour not forced. I hadn’t seen these type of shows in a long time until….
In the beginning…
The angel Lucifer was cast out of Heaven and condemned to rule Hell for all eternity.
Until he decided to take a vacation…
That 👆🏾 right there had me automatically.
