A phone is not important

My attitude towards technology shifted over time. I notice I put less emphasis on a specific brand, an operating system maker, or a hardware manufacturer, and more on what I can accomplish with it. It’s probably a side-effect of seeing products and services come and go over the years.

Technology is just a tool and, yes, certain tools are better for certain jobs. But worshiping it doesn’t seem right. A tool is not the end goal; it’s what I can accomplish with it.

A text editor is not important; writing a poem is.
A camera is not important; capturing a precious moment is.
A phone is not important; calling a friend is.
