Are you a slave to your iOS device?Posted: October 20, 2011 Filed under: 1. Philosophy Comments Off on Are you a slave to your iOS device?
Yes, it is a big deal about the Apple upgrade and iCloud is useful for those of us trying to do many different things in many different places, but consider who is serving whom in your relationship with your smart devices.
Personally, I like Randy Murray’s suggestion on how to break your online addiction:
You don’t have to be a slave to your devices. They are there to serve you. But you are there to serve your garden.
Of course, I end up using my smart phone while gardening frequently for reminders on when I’ve sown specific seeds, reviewing notes on last year’s garlic harvest, listening to NPR podcasts, looking up directions on assembling a greenhouse, or completing work telephone calls while weeding.
