We are surrounded by devices that are presumably making us smarter. They think for us so we don't have to. There are refrigerators that keep an inventory of your items, emails that will finish sentences for you, text apps that will give you options of how to reply and what to say - emojis included, cars that drive themselves, and the list could go on...and on...and on...
Do you feel smarter or more dependent? If something is thinking for you, does that mean you don't have to think as much? Hmm. In exercise they say, "If you don't use it you will lose it." The same goes with most things - our brain and smarts included.
Here's a test to see if your smart devices are making you smarter or at a loss without them. Pick up the phone when you want to text or email and call the person or business instead. Have a conversation that is organic, not prompted by an app. How did that feel? Empowering? Use this little test for anything "smart" you own. Make your own grocery list, use your own senses to back up out of the driveway, turn off the apps that complete your sentences, etc. You'll be smarter for it.
One more thing to leave you with about all these smart devices that have us fixated. The more you have of them the easier it is for you to get hacked. It makes it easier for someone with ill intentions to get into your home (virtually and physically). So be careful out there smart one, be wiser than your devices.
