    Smartphone fans - here's an amazing statistic to prove how self-absorbed smartphone users have become (remember my restaurant story) - look what happened when the Facebook Fab 4 went dark last week (courtesy of PhoneArena):

    "The surprising revelation comes in the form of unprecedented traffic drop that happened on the AT&T network during the Facebook outage, and was subsequently recorded and announced by Ma Bell for all to see. Needless to say, New York won the palm with a jaw-dropping 11% decrease in mobile traffic just from the Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp services alone. Pretty crazy and in the immortal words of AT&T's Mo Katibeh: "That's a lot of selfies and dog videos, people!"

    And that's ONLY AT&T...

    I always like to say that the end of civilization will occur because of the internet in some form...

    It has already "occurred," it just hasn't caught up with some of us yet.:newpalm:

    I wasn't asked, but: "NOT being Jon Gruden or Urban Meyer."

    Well, maybe that's a better definition for decency...:(

    On I think HeadFi.org, which is a headphone enthusiast site, a couple of years back one of their long term members posted essentially a rant about smartphones and their associated cases.

    In essence, he came to the conclusion that smartphones especially are now the adult acceptable versions of Barbie dolls. He went on to list his phones and the multiple cases he had purchased for each.

    I have to admit, I'm at least minimally guilty myself as I'm up to three cases for my fold, and probably since the iPhone 8 have had at least two cases for them, usually the leather and silicone covers.

    Always in different colors of course and I would tell my wife that I "needed" those different cases for the different environments I was working in eg. the leather was better generally, but the silicone ones had better grip. She usually responds with an eye roll and "whatever makes you happy"

    And even taking a step up, I'm not immune to irrational pangs of desire, for example I really like the new blue shade of the iPhone 13 pros, and I bought the green variant of both the 11 Pro and my current fold....
