Our Toxic Smartphone Addiction

My name is Lenny Charnoff and I’m an addict. Yes, I realize I am a smartphone addict. The smartphone has become an extension of my body and after reading the following article from the Chicago Tribune I’m going to keep a diary of my smartphone use and report back on how I’m using other activities in lieu of smartphone use.

But in the meantime read this article to see why I started my project of less smartphone usage.

Flashback Friday – What’s Your Digital Brand

What’s Your Digital Brand?

 

What’s On Your Smartphone First Screen

The apps you use the most should be on your first screen. Here are 7 apps I use everyday.

  • Gmail – a business and personal account
  • WhatsApp – my goto messaging app
  • Camera & Photos- Duh
  • Translate- An absolute necessity living in a foreign country
  • Google Keep – My notebook of important informaton
  • Phone- Duh
  • Amazon Music – unlimited songs with my Prime Account

My first screen (see graphic below ) consists of 25 apps that I use everyday. What are some of your apps.

BTW, if you want to order salmon or want to know the next selling location you can click on Cuenca Salmon

LaGuarida: First Artisans’ Fair – Feria Artesanal

La Guarida’s best translation  to English is a ‘Cave’ but I think this place reminds me of a Greenwich Village Cafe. This is Cuenca’s best kept secret. You have to visit this place to see the wonderful attention to detail and to chat with Andres, the creator of La Guarida.

14 Vendors will be there from 10:00 – 2:00 pm  this Saturday September 16th displaying their wares and having tastings.

Of course I will have my salmon and other fine fish products.

  • 14 portions of salmon for the price of 12
  • $22 a kg on large fillets
  • $6.50 Rainbow Trout Fillet
  • $8 a lb of cleaned and deveined Shrimp
  • $13 for 5 med.-large Tilapia Fillets

 

Will You Pay $1000 For Your Next Smartphone?

The Samsung Note 8 unlocked base price is $$940 and the rumored price for the iPhone 8 is $1000. Some of the readers of this blog will be purchasing their new iPhone with a Carrier’s subsidy when they renew their cellular plan. I have a cellular plan through Claro but only pay 1/4 of what I would in the U.S.

There is a great article about the $1000 Smartphone here.

 

I think I will be holding on to my 3 year old Nexus Smartphone another year.
