Execupundit.com: Phone Upgrades. There aren't a whole lot of bloggers that I read religiously. Bloggers are like friends; we have a lot of acquaintances, but you can count your friends on one hand. Michael Wade is one of the ones that I won't start a day without. He is a thinker, in a time of dilettantes. He does, however, have a flaw. His is tech readiness. I call it tech challenged; but, the fact is, he looks for serenity, and a path away from modern technology. I, on the other hand, thrive in a tech heavy environment. Put me out in the woods, without a cell phone connection or a computer with Internet access, and I will be crying like a baby. However, Michael is not alone in his resistance to modern tech and smart phones, in particular. My comment to his post about his old cell phone has one central point. Modern tech is easy to live with, even if you crave serenity. Just figure out where the off switch is, and, anytime you want to go out into the woods, turn the thing off. Or, just don't take it with you. What the hell do you do in the woods anyway?
