Apps vs. People – the similarity

For a phone not to be human it has human capabilities. They almost have moods and personalities as a human. Phones are manufactured with intelligence and can be programmed to operate on multiple commands. They are good at reminding us of what we need to do as well as reminding us of what they need in order to do. Phones need care. The more care they receive, quite naturally the better they will perform. And after a useful lifespan and they are ready to retire, their activity signals this. Even with all the services a phone has provided, we still want them to give more. That is not likely though.

Ask the apps for what is needed

Apps epitomize the advances, uniqueness and the smartness of phones. There is not a whole lot we can want or need and there is not an app suitable. From shopping to reading to health to entertainment to directions to scheduling to notations to exchanging money to connecting to education to controlling other devices to news and weather, apps have us covered. All they need are the desired settings and they go to work. Knowing what they need to do and responding makes them similar to humans.

Wise choices

When mulling over the correlation between phones and apps, they need each other. Apps are like activities in our lives. In what we are committed to or agree to, we execute. Much like devices, too many apps open at once causes the host to slow and eventually crash. There is nothing wrong with involvement. It is honorable to put the time, energy, and attention into reaching a goal or goals. Doing out of kindness when tasks are doable is admirable. Yet with all the doing, there must be a firm use of “no” when needed. We owe it to ourselves to refresh to perform. A phone has enough thought capacity to slow or cease when too much is happening. How can a phone made by humans be wiser than the human? It is wise to slow down, shut down and shut off before running raggedly and the body does it.
