This is only one cartoonist’s opinion, but I think smartphones need to be treated with a little caution (hence this strip). Sometimes I hear disquieting stories about what happens to one’s memory when one fails to regularly work out one’s brain (if your muscles can atrophy due to a sedentary lifestyle, why not your mind?). So now I’ll act like I just stepped out of the distant past and say that the next time you need (or want) to know something, rather than simply asking your phone, or whatever other artificial intelligence might be on hand, why not instead make it a fun little challenge? Look something up alphabetically in a book. Or grab a pen and piece of scratch paper and do the math. A little exercise is good for you! 🙂
