sounds gay, im not a zoomer and i like my smartphone, i played baba is you when im bored, smartphones are based, i got gps, i got a web browser, i can listen to music
>these new "dumb" phones are just as smart as the ones we are using right now
they're not. try using one sometime. many have no ability to install applications and have basic features you'd find 15+ years ago. it's like the old days of nokias. you don't need a very fast CPU to answer calls or get texts (which is all being processed by the modem chipset anyway), in turn leading to huge power savings and a phone you don't really need to recharge as often.
generation of kids and young adults born after 2000 are sick to death of cancerous social media applications, distractions from notifications from cancerous apps and israeli corporations stealing their data. you can continue to suck on israeli cock if you like but the rest of us will just sit back and laugh at your incredibly low iq. i can see why you'd all be disappointed things are heading this way as you can't pretend to be a 12yo boy to solicit nudes from a 10yo unless there's a real computer involved.
you replied, sounds like you do, i must have hit a nerve
no. nobody cares about your opinion. it's like getting life advice from people that shit in the street and use the hands of homeless children as toilet paper. you're so far behind how reality works that you may as well just kys because things aren't going to get any easier for you.
ok keep coping
>generation of kids and young adults born after 2000
guess what? we did this thing too when facebook and twitter were the main social media
we did it again when smartphones became the hot new thing
you are not special
you were the one who posted the thread and asked for opinions
of kids and young adults born after 2000 are sick to death of cancerous social media applications
no they aren't
there's no such thing as a zoomer that doesn't use social media and phones people and sends sms text messages
well there are but they may literally be one in a million.
a lot of younger people are absolutely disgusted with the drama their parents and grand parents find themselves in through their phones.
There are but they're rarer
>there's no such thing as a zoomer that doesn't use social media and phones people and sends sms text messages
hi you're talking to one
NTA but I really doubt it
>you don't need a very fast CPU to answer calls or get texts
original SMS yes, but today I think the 2G and 3G networks have been shutdown or will be, unfortunately
>generation of kids and young adults born after 2000 are sick to death of cancerous social media applications
Those same people still use facebook, instagram, whatsapp, ichat, discord, zoom etc privacy my ass
Looks like the same Nokia 106 I have.
these new "dumb" phones are just as smart as the ones we are using right now
>with the latest apps
These digital detoxing zoomers will be still scrolling, just on a different device.
Also you can always just not stare at a screen
based anton poster. watch some of trading lessons years ago and made bank moving crypto to real money.
i just need whatsapp to talk to parents and wechat to talk to chinese people. besides that my phone is really used a dumb phone with a map.
This. Other then sms and messaging apps, all other apps have notifications turned off. It's a matter of self control and changing the notification settings.
Same. I don't even use the map anymore since I discovered that paper maps are faster to use than the time ti takes for my phone to locate me. Plus, more accurate.
>use paper map
>enjoy the botnet
are you black, mentally challenged or both?
>besides that my phone is really used a dumb phone
Enoy the botnet retards
It'll probably never happen. One of the biggest ways people my age communicate is snapchat and not a lot of people will be willing to drop that.
Also, I personally use my phone for YouTube and music more than even communication
>He only reads emails when he used his smartphone
>"You have to ditch the smartphone to begin with in order to value your time correctly and get rich"
Holly retard! What if people around me are subhumans? What if I'm a wagie (regular worker) who doesn't get rich by not using phone? What does this do with zoomers? No one ditched their phone because of this homosexual.
What the fuck is it with these people?
I'm guessing they're coping massively because they didn't grow up with this and they're in what I was in when I Was a teenager.
I don't have a single issue with my smartphone.
>'ditching the smartphone' trend
this is not a real thing. Some dude on the internet just made this up and wrote and article about it.
>Look at the dumbphones being used
>Literally just stripped down android and they're all using mobile site equivilants
Okay so I think they're retarded but if this trend stops mobile sites from constantly trying to redirect me to their app in the store then they have my full support
people have been making these videos and writing blogs about this since before you were even accustomed to the concept of smartphones
they are seeking attention
While its the right attitude to have, as with all fad lifestyle changes it misidentifies the problem and/or is such an overreaction that one can't sustainably practice it. Plus its bound to be co-opted by some grifter looking to make money, or is doomed to fail for some other reason. The problem with the smartphone isn't the smartphone itself, its all the psychological manipulation baked into every app, the data collection, the constant connectivity, and the fact that it's no longer seen as a tool, but an extension of the person "owning" it. It no longer is a means to an end, it is the end. Having one device that is a cellphone, mp3 player, a high quality camera, a calculator, a notepad, and a calendar all in one is a genuinely useful tool. Having a device constantly buzzing about some bullshit twitter trend, or the latest news "disaster" is not.
I wish I could ditch my pocket spy machine
nice advert for these $500 "dumb" phones
absolute horse shit
I have my phone in battery saving mode, no notifications, no background applications, crazy battery life.
Three and a half days isn't very much battery life. I get five out of mine on the regular.
If I'm going to cheat on my wife I will use a dumb phone
Lots of people have a dumbphone but it's mostly used to order drugs. If you see any zoomer with one they're on drugs or selling them.
what is the significance of the fiji water?
I swear someone predicted this future but I can't quite put my finger on it...
>songs get shorter and shorter
>1 min 26 seconds
>just getting fucked up on whatever you can 24/7
>nothing to actually live for, boomers essentially borrowed the future gains of society and spent them on themselves
Pretty wild tbh
Actually going to get really weird now that average IQ bullshit jobs that don't essentally dpend on a body being there are going to get automated out. And even physical labor is getting automated out.
Apparently Amazon Robotics is on track to be essentially 100% automated within 10 years. And from what I've been told, it's a conservative estimate.
Technology in theory can make up for the boomer mess. But it's honestly hard to imagine good things happening tbh.
>The people who run the world openly calling other humans "useless eaters"
COVID was a dry run, they have identified the people they need to keep the plates spinning and who they can cull
Seeing the same people buying up all the property, homes and farmland is really quite worrying, they wouldn't just try and starve people to death surely? Seems inefficient but I don't see vaxxies dropping dead either so whats the plan, make living so miserable and stressful people kill themselves to escape dystopia?
Actually, this might sound stupid but I think I unironically figured it out.
There is a huge fundamental value to being able to test various chemical substances on actual human subjects in large scale trials. Even now with just mainly mice trials it's extremely difficult to get any sort of real or relevant data.
Even with no fundamental economic value, I can imagine there would still be tons of value in having hundreds of millions of humans to experiment on for things like longevity, nootopics, even recreational drugs.
At this point people will point to one questionable study from the 70s as 'hard evidence'. Not only that but apparently the state of science in general is so bad that barely any results are actually able to be reproduced.
Dystopian or not, I can honestly see the value for some in having people live in the pod.
Before I didn't really see why they would bother with the pod. But just trying to deep dive into a something like nootopics or life extension and it becomes extremely obvious very quickly how bad things are, and they could be a lot better.
Kill billionaires. Behead billionaires. Roundhouse kick a billionaire into the concrete. Slam dunk a billionaire baby into the trashcan. Crucify filthy richfags. Defecate in a billionaires food. Launch billionaires into the sun. Stir fry billionaires in a wok. Toss billionaires into active volcanoes. Urinate into a billionaires gas tank. Judo throw billionaires into a wood chipper. Twist billionaires heads off. Report billionaires to the IRS. Kabillionairee chop billionaires in half. Curb stomp pregnant richfag billionaires. Trap billionaires in quicksand. Crush billionaires in the trash compactor. Liquefy billionaires in a vat of acid. Eat billionaires. Dissect billionaires. Exterminate billionaires in the gas chamber. Stomp billionaire skulls with steel toed boots. Cremate billionaires in the oven. Lobotomize billionaires. Mandatory abortions for billionaires. Grind billionaire fetuses in the garbage disposal. Drown billionaires in fried chicken grease. Vaporize billionaires with a ray gun. Kick old billionaires down the stairs. Feed billionaires to alligators. Slice billionaires with a katana.
wait, so you're telling me zoomers are actually based?
its a cope for weak willed manchildren
the problem isnt the device youre just overstimulated
A lack of willpower implies that they wouldn't be able to combat the overstimulation even if they tried which means the solution of simply removing the source is the correct one.
phones dont work for anything but being a phone, ok? sorry, but the experiment failed. calls and texts, and maybe maps, are fine, but both the hardware and software provide a relatively poor experience for everything else, and added complexity actually interferes with basic phone capabilities. apps crash and drain battery and waste bandwidth and require reboot downtime, and android cant even get clock alarms to work correctly, so im gonna use a cheap phone with zero apps plus a laptop plus an alarm clock
I never had the phone addiction problem that zoomers seem to have. Scrolling social media is really boring to me. I cannot understand the appeal of shit like tiktok at all. I pretty much just use the phone, messaging, email, web browser, camera and that's pretty much it. But I never feel like I have to look at it. I'm much more addicted to my laptop and LULZ.
I have been contemplating a total nagger technology removal from my life. It would be stripped down to
>a dumbphone with whatsapp
>a desktop with every cancer site shut out by the DNS server
It would save me so much wasted time but there are a handful of extremely annoying downsides (no synched calendar in your pocket, physical concert tickets, no mobile banking etc.).
Is this where I go to claim my hipster cred for having never owned anything other than a flip phone?
yeah but you'll need some better pepes, that one's pretty bland. Here's a freebie.
I use mine to read books, take pictures of weird bugs, and listen to music when I need to work fast. Why should I stop doing those things? If dude is saying other people are using their phones for harmful things and should stop, then yeah I agree. I hate using a phone for internet browsing, the experience is atrocious.
I wouldn't mind it, however I use my phone when I fly for ATS-B In. Don't want to buy a tablet to do the same thing. I don't use my phone for much else and leave it in battery saver all the time. It goes about five days before it hits 30% and I charge it again.
How do you even use 2G these days? I don't want to have to use a retarded newer dumbphone with their shitty software. Is there a way to adapt the older devices to be compatible with 4g?
This is stupid, the problem aren't devices, it's that people's lives are empty and fragmented and they turn to these devices to fill a hole in their lives. Society has been hollowed out by social media and news media. Sociopathic elites are tearing the world apart to fill their pockets, and it works because they have literally hired some of the brightest minds from across the world to fine-tune their outrage-generation algorithms to the micron. I don't blame people for falling victim to this kind of elite-led psychoterrorism, it's literally propaganda on steroids and broadcast on a global scale.
I think you're touching on the meaning of this song, a lil' bit: https://youtu.be/_0Pf48RqSsg
>literally hired some of the brightest minds from across the world to fine-tune their outrage-generation algorithms to the micron
I don't think we're QUITE there yet, right now most companies use quite blunt instrumentation. That said, as the data sets expand and our analysis abilities become better, I kinda predict we'll move toward this reality.
