If Your Phone Could Talk

We used to say you could tell a person’s priorities by looking at his checkbook. I’d submit to you that today you can tell a person’s priorities by how he uses his phone.

If your phone could talk… what would it say about you?

  • Who is he talking to?
  • Who is he texting?
  • How is he talking about people?
  • How does he talk about people via text?
  • What is he looking at when no one else is looking?
  • When is he using his phone?
  • Does his phone fill his hand more than the hand of the one he loves?

Here’s what I know about technology. One day your phone will tell on you. One day everything you’ve posted on Facebook may become public. One day everything you’ve ever Googled may be public. E-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.

One day… it will all tell the whole story of you. Every key stroke on that device could one day be exposed. Every text message, direct message, email, and Facebook message could one day become public.

I believe your smart phone is amoral. It’s can be used for noble or ignoble purposes. My hope is that as I use my phone,  (and technology like it) I use them as instruments of Good News in how I conduct my personal, family, and business affairs.

The story your phone tells is up to you.


Saturday Tunes

Saturday TunesNot a lot of plans this weekend, so we will fall into routines fairly quickly. Kristen and Megan are hiking up Cowles Mountain. Stoney and I are waiting for them to return so we can head to Dog Beach for some beach therepy. After that we have no plans. A nice relaxing weekend lies ahead.

Right now I am sipping tea and listening to music. I did some rearranging on things in the sidebar, so make sure you check that out. The blogroll is back! Here are the next 10 tunes I’m listening to. As always, these are completely random and my ratings are included.

Saturday Tunes

Lots going on. Of course next week I’ll be leaving for the first National Youth Workers Convention which packs in all sorts of stuff. On top of that we have two emergent issues at home. First, Stoney is on his way to the vet. We had heard fleas were an issue in San Diego, but we now need help controlling this problem. I’d take pictures but it is too gross. On top of that, as I blogged last night our car is busted. So right now I’m waiting for Enterprise to pick me up so we can have some wheels while we figure out our next step with the car.

Long story short, music is always part of my day. So here are the next 10 tunes I’m listening too during this challenging day. As always, totally random and no cheating.
