How Smart phones Are Making Us Dumb!

Ever since smart phones came into our lives, it is difficult to imagine life without it. From  staying connected to transferring data everything is faster, better and smoother. But I have to give the smart phones their biggest and greatest credit – it is making us the dumbest ever too! Check this out!

The selfie craze

This one looked like a “gone too far “case. People would go to any length to get their perfect selfie picture clicked. Be it any situation, what clicks them first is the idea of getting the selfie. It has assumed dumb proportions! In between a traffic jam, on a busy road, at a risky angle, in the water people are doing the unthinkable to get that perfect shot. The cool quotient is determined by the “likes” and “comments” it receives. Simple!

The social media hyper-syndrome

Updating, uploading, checking, today we all are obsessed with social media. Be it facebook, instagram or twitter, we have to let the world know how cool we are! At a 5 start restaurant, first thing is to take the phone out and check-in! At the international airport, come’on!, check in on FB to let everyone know!

The video capture impulse

These days when a man is dying due to an accident, people prefer to shoot the scene on camera on their smart phone to let the police know how the man died! The thought of taking  the victim to the hospital is secondary.  It is indeed turning into a generation of super dumb people with smart phones!
